For fans of Maybe You Should Talk to Someone and Tiny Beautiful Things, this inspiring and moving exploration of the twelve fundamental psychological needs we all share goes behind the closed doors of therapy to guide us in navigating our deepest longings.What do we want? And how do we get it? Chloe is beautiful and fiercely bright, but she feels desperately deprived. Elliot, lost and adrift, is secretly grieving the loss of his famous lover. Rosie has always tried to follow the rules of cultural expectations, but a year into her marriage, she still hasn't had sex with her husband. Dwight is determined to be upbeat, even in the face of his wife's betrayal. Each of us, at certain moments in our lives, can feel lost or confused. We often don't know how to get what we want, or what we think we want, but we share these universal desires: to love and be loved; understanding, power, attention, freedom; to create, to belong, to win, to connect, to control; and we want what we shouldn't. In each of these twelve chapters, focused on one of these universal desires, psychotherapist Charlotte Fox Weber takes you behind the closed doors of a therapy session to bear witness as she guides a client towards profound insights, change, and growth. Written with warmth and compassion, full of dramatic, intimate, and moving personal stories, and based on careful research as well as firsthand observations, Tell Me What You Want is an inspirational guide to living well.
