"This book is written in a fascinating fashion, intertwining a detailed presentation of an intensive psychotherapy with an unusually frank account of the therapist's reconsideration of her theoretical model and development of new modes of thinking about and doing treatment." - Bill Cornell, author and trainer in transactional analysis and body-centred psychotherapy

"This is a must read book for any serious psychotherapist interested in providing a comprehensive and in-depth psychotherapy and of particular interest to clinical Transactional Analysis." - Richard G. Erskine, Training Director, Institute for Integrative Psychotherapy, New York City

"By providing the reader with an integrated perspective which addresses contemporary relational theories and their implications for clinical practice, therapists, supervisors, trainers and clients themselves will find this book a rich resource and source of much useful and relevant material." - Diana Shmukler, UKCP Integrative Psychotherapist, Supervisor and Trainer

"Hargaden and Sills have provided a clear and comprehensive theory of the evolution of a core sense of self. This theory functions, in itself, as a left brain 'hold' that allows therapists to use their right brain intuition and imagination to enter into and experience the patient's right-brain perception of their reality without the therapist becoming lost. This is quite an achievement, and one that I believe will benefit even the most experienced and sophisticated therapists." - Ken Woods, The Psychotherapist, 2004

"The book is a marvellous journey from beginnings... The book offers a wide range of theoretical and methodological stimuli which are worth discussing. Every relational therapist and transactional analyst should have it." - Ulrike Muller, European Journal of Psychotherapy and Counselling, 9(1) March 2007

"This is a richly informative book and readers will be encouraged by the authors' reflection, honesty, and human approach to their work, regardless of which modality they may feel they 'belong' to. I would recommend this book to any serious practitioner who has an interest in how the'nitty-gritty' of the relationship not only influences, but is central to, the process of psychotherapy." - Neil Gibson, Journal of Existential Analysis, Vol. 19, No. 2, 2008
