Juliet Grayson takes us through the doorway into the hidden world of a psychotherapy session. She shakes our assumptions about how relationships work, and what to expect from our intimate partners, showing different routes to more satisfying and loving intimacy, and giving us a grounded understanding of what makes relationships successful.
These compelling stories provide a vivid picture of the therapeutic process, which includes the therapist’s inner thoughts. As we sit on Juliet’s shoulder, we witness her humanity and compassion, as she uses a rich blend of life-changing approaches, drawing on twenty-five years of clinical experience. In each fascinating journey, we follow the client(s) through two or more sessions, covering weeks or months. Thus we can track the effects of the insights the clients have gained, as they progress to more loving relationships. In each case, Juliet shares a particular aspect of theory, so we can see the methodologies that underpin her work. We see her working with five couples and one individual.
A variety of methodologies
Juliet shows us a range of methods such as: Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), emotional fusion, anger management, and Pesso Boyden System Psychomotor (PBSP). Juliet also introduces us to two of her new models: ‘The Pleaser,The Boss, The Loner and the Self-Developer’, and ‘Five Star Conscious Relating.’
Introducing Pesso Boyden System Psychomotor to the UK
This is the first book published in the UK, to show how Pesso Boyden Therapy, a potent methodology that is relatively unknown in the UK, works in action. Juliet gives us an insight into how PBSP can be used, both in one-to-one sessions and also in a group context. PBSP was established in USA in 1960’s, and is well known in Holland and many European countries.
