Perspective

The author is both a worldly and well-educated woman. Because of this, she is able to add personal experience as an individual but also as a practitioner of psychotherapy. She writes from the perspective as an expert healer of the mind, or if readers prefer, as a woman who has the power to unleash the self-healing powers of the minds of others.
