About the Book

In his first book, Joshua Thomas expertly explains the dangers lurking within modern Mental Health Services and guides you towards sound and useful Psychological Therapy. The author has distilled hidden problems, including the awful lack of regulation, the dash for cash, the disregard for you as an individual, and the use of bad science to justify Bad Psych. The author also describes what makes a Good Psychologist and Good Psychology, so you can get Good Psych, the therapy that does you good. At the core of the book is a fearless insight into real therapy with real case studies. Each case provides unique insights into the murky world of psychological therapy. “A refreshingly honest appraisal of the dysregulated mental health services that the public and practitioners are faced with. Essential reading for individuals and families to increase their chances of connecting with the right psychology practitioner and avoiding poor practices. Interestingly, the book is a useful text for new and established psychologists in appreciating and assessing their own readiness to provide good therapy.” - Dr Jake Anderson, B.B.Ns, Ph.D, M.Psych (Clinical)
