Jess Kolbe challenges the medical and pharmaceutical companies on a philosophy of prescribing pills and labeling people. She has taken on that precept in her book, “The Naughty Therapist” (published by Balboa Press AU), through which she argues this is simply not enough of a response to people who’ve experienced any kind of trauma.

The author pulls from her own life and examples from therapy sessions to present positive steps to help readers regain control of their lives or help their loved ones regain control of theirs. She seeks to topple myths about post-traumatic stress disorder, depression and other conditions.

She hopes the book sparks an honest conversation with the reader and others to get practical help in recognizing and working through trauma.

An excerpt from “The Naughty Therapist”:
The more I feel, the more things make sense to me. The more I connect with people, the clearer and happier I am. I guess, really I’m just one chick out there in the world sharing my feelings and thinking in the hope of connecting with you, one human being to another; dreaming of a wave of connection covering the world, an ever spreading ripple expanding outwards.
