    One thought on “Cutting it Out: A Journey through Psychotherapy and Self-Harm

    1. Madteapartier

      An interesting, intense book. I found the main character hard to relate to & feel that the story lacks suspense, however, I enjoyed the author's writing style & found some of her comments very insightful.

    2. Emily

      I found this book a little more distracting to read as it was based in UK style of writing. That aside, I thought this was a touching book and could be very valuable to those that self-harm or to those that know someone who self-harms.

    3. Nicola

      A book that certainly makes you think. The attachment to her psychotherapist is disturbing at times but very powerful. A short book that could be very triggering but very interesting too.
