If change is the natural order of things, why do so many people struggle with the milestones of life – from first jobs and first loves to children leaving home and retirement of compassionate wisdom.
We live in a culture of limitless choice – and life is now more complex than ever. In This Too Shall Pass, acclaimed psychotherapist Julia Samuel draws on hours of conversations with her patients to show how we can learn to adapt and thrive during our most difficult and transformative experiences. Illuminated by the latest social and psychological research, this book unflinchingly deals with the hard times in family, love, work, health and identity. This could be from a woman deciding whether to leave her husband for a younger lover, to a father handling a serious medical diagnosis. And from a new mother struggling with the decision to return to work, to a young man dealing with the aftermath of coming out, and a woman starting over after losing her job.
Samuel is a skilled psychotherapist and in her book, she provides plentiful evidence of her expertise with the work she does with her clients. She has the skill to be able to hone in on the important issues, whilst acknowledging the real-life difficulties that people face when it comes to change, it is often deeply uncomfortable to face and can be even harder to implement change.
Samuel has such a profoundly deep writing style. She is honest and professional. I found it to be as with her first book Grief Works that this was a great informative guide that I know you would find very useful in the practical help it may offer on crucial aspects of our lives.
These compelling, sincere and sensitive stories about us all of us, will inform your understanding of your unique response to change and enlighten the way you approach challenges at every stage of life.
