It’s Not Always About Freud

Adele Scott

Thirty-seven year-old psychotherapist Laura Flight works in a mental health clinic and appears to be better at solving other people’s problems rather than her own. She drinks too much, is not woman enough to dump feckless ex-partner, Brad, and is finding it harder to drown out the sound of her ticking biological clock. 

Then an attractive new client, with connections to the clinic’s manager, walks into her therapy room. The unfolding events reach a crisis, which unexpectedly jeopardizes Laura’s position in the clinic and inevitably forces her to take charge of her life. 

Laura learns the biggest battle she has to face, is the battle with herself. 

This is a contemporary story written with wry humour, reflecting themes of resistance, change and resolution.
