Dr Faith's 5 minute therapy - Adulting

Dr Faith's 5 minute therapy - Adulting 

by Faith G. Harper, PhD, LPC-S, ACS

10.5cm x 
14cm, 16 pages, cardboard cover.


I've said this before about Dr Faith's zines in a previous review, but it's true. The genius idea behind this series is that we often face problems that don't need a whole barrage of self-help books, or a series of expensive sessions with a therapist. That's where this series of situation focused help and advice comes in. They are a practical mix of psychology, life coaching, common sense, and understanding. They are often funny too. In fact, just the kind of advice you'd seek from a grounded friend, a friend who just happens to be a qualified therapist.

The subject tackled in this issue is Adulting - more specifically 'How to be an adultier adult'

What does it mean to be an adult? Mainly it's having to deal with all those things you didn't thank your parents for doing on your behalf, and often didn't realise they were even doing them. 

Following the successful formula of other zines in this series, Dr Faith presents a list of points, affirmations, and rules to follow to help you be a better adult - no matter what your age. 

As Dr Faith says, this zine is:
"a reminder of how to get up every day, do the best we can do, and remember that it really will be ok in the end".
