The Therapy Experience Summary


The Therapy Experience: How Human Kindness Heals by Roger Kingerlee

Why do people hurt each other so much? What use is Psychotherapy? How can mindfulness help? In "The Therapy Experience", Dr Roger Kingerlee suggests that, given our tendencies to treat ourselves and others mindlessly, it may be wise for us to take a step back-even just for a moment - to reflect on how we lead our lives and, in particular, what we do to each other. Whether children, adults, or older people, all of us need psychologically respectful treatment in everyday life if we are to lead fulfilling lives. This is why people respond so well to good psychotherapy, as numerous case studies show. If, as Kingerlee believes, human mindlessness is the problem, the focused practice of human mindfulness may be the cure.

The Therapy Experience Reviews

Lord Richard Layard Dr. Kingerlee's book, full of understanding and open-hearted compassion, draws attention to the crucial part that mindful empathy and acceptance play in the therapeutic relationship. Read this book. Open to it. Cultivate mindfulness. It could change your life." Michael Chaskalson, Mindfulness expert, Cambridge, UK

About Roger Kingerlee


Dr Roger Kingerlee was educated at the Universities of Oxford, Berlin, Hamburg and East Anglia, and is now a practising chartered clinical psychologist in Norfolk. The Therapy Experience is part self-help, part-confession and part-plea for compassion. Kingerlee draws on his personal and professional experience of psychological issues and current clinical psychological practice to argue that there are excellent reasons to treat each other, and ourselves, respectfully--as happens in good psychotherapy. This is because each one of us sets the psychological climate in which others live, no matter what our age, gender, or cultural background.
