    This book is poorly written, full of typos, and not grounded in professional practice. But worst of all the therapy tales from Anne Kearns are disturbing and unethical. At one point in the book, when a client refuses one of Anne’s abusive dependency techniques, Anne wish’s the client killed themselves (quoted below). This is a highly disturbing wish - I don’t believe this book is fit for publication. Anne Kearns is not registered, or licensed, as a therapist, or as a supervisor. Avoid this book, and this so called ‘therapist’. Stories from the book demonstrate that she encourages clients to depend on her and she enjoys it when they look up to her and feed her narcissism.

    A disturbing extract from the book written by Anne Kearns - “I took her suicidal thoughts seriously and strongly suggested to her that she come in for an extra appointment at the end of the week or, at least, that she ring me. When I didn’t hear from her I was surprised at my reaction. I didn’t feel concerned. I felt angry. In fact, my internal response to the question, “I wonder if she has killed herself,” was a loud and emphatic “Good!”

    Not only is the book unethical, it’s poorly produced by the publisher. There are many typos, and spelling and grammatical mistakes. It seems the publisher forgot to assign an editor, or copy editor, to this project.
