This book faces the inevitability of death and taxes, and sets out to see how the psychological therapist can help a person to live well while life is available, and to face the endings that confront all of us with honesty, and the acceptance of our human fragility. Therapists suffer through the fears and failures of the people they see as well as through their own endings. These difficulties can help each one to be more understanding and helpful or can lead to disaster. This book is about making sure that we use experience as well as theory constructively.

Reviews and Endorsements:

‘This is a brave book. It is written for therapists and will help them to think through the ending of therapeutic relationships, as well as aging, retirement, and indeed death. But it is relevant more widely. We all face these challenges, but they are rarely discussed. This book brings them forward in our consciousness and will make them easier to embrace.’
— Rt Hon Clare Short, former Member of Parliament and Secretary Of State for International Development (1997–2003)

‘Faced with my own retirement, and whilst encouraging others to talk about their pending departure from the psychotherapy profession, I decided to initiate a special interest group within my professional body. This has been greatly facilitated by Lesley Murdin’s new book, which should be helpful to anyone in any profession.’
—Deirdre Schueppert, psychoanalytic psychotherapist
