Ever wonder what your therapist is really thinking? Now you can find out … a hilarious, thought-provoking and surprising new book that takes us behind the scenes of a therapist's world.
Meet Lori Gottlieb, an insightful and compassionate therapist whose clients present with all kinds of problems. There’s the struggling new parents; the older woman who feels she has nothing to live for; the self-destructive young alcoholic; and the terminally ill 35-year-old newlywed. And there’s John, a narcissistic television producer, who frankly just seems to be a bit of a jerk. Over the course of a year, they all make progress.
But Gottlieb is not just a therapist – she’s also a patient who's on a journey of her own. Interspersed with the stories of her clients are her own therapy sessions, as Gottlieb goes in search of the hidden roots of a devastating and life-changing event.
Personal, revealing, funny and wise, Maybe You Should Talk to Someone opens a rare window onto a world that is most often bound by secrecy, offering an illuminating tour of a profoundly private process.

Loved every minute
This book is a great insight in the life of a psychologist from both sides of the couch. Many things Lori discussed rang true to me, so there are some very good tips and observations that fit the bill for many people out there. It is very thought provoking.
I actually can’t wait to listen to it again because there is so much to it. If you like people watching and are fascinated about how we tick, but also want a good tale to get your teeth into, this is the book for you. It’s not at all heavy going, but does touch on some sensitive subjects along the way.
