Susan Groves takes the respected form of Core Process Psychotherapy out of the therapy room and into everyday life. Always accessible to the reader, she suggests that Core Process can address the malaise in relationship which is so prevalent in the western world.
Core process was an early pioneer of mindfulness practice, long before it became a widely accepted, mainstream psychological tool. Susan Groves is an experienced Core Process practitioner and her writing offers an unusually accessible insight into depth psychotherapy.
There is a way in which Susan’s almost conversational, direct connection with the reader helps reveal the profundity of what Core Process Psychotherapy has to offer in an apparently simple way. She captures that ordinary/extraordinary quality of Core Process vividly and engagingly. Her verbatim pieces of client process are well chosen and help capture the spirit of the work where nothing much necessarily happens, but transformation can be taking place.

I had the pleasure of editing this book which I found hugely interesting and thought-provoking. The conversational style employed is delightful, ensuring that the reader really ‘gets’ sometimes quite complex issues. I found the reflections particularly engaging, enabling the reader to really embrace the concepts and put them into practice. A journey is embarked on by the reader in this absolutely fabulous book.
