letterA1Dr. John Clarkson takes the reader on a wonderful journey into the complex web of human emotions and behaviour that shapes our lives. It is now 25 years since M. Scott Peck guided readers on a similar expedition in his ground breaking book, The Road Less Travelled. Many have followed him, endeavouring to assist us in our understanding of ourselves and often the misunderstood remedy that might await us beyond the psychotherapist's door.

The Dream Not Yet confronts the hard issues - the psychic trauma and pain known, to some degree, by us all and addresses these in a soft and empathetic manner. Written in a calming literary style, the dialogue allows the reader to become the patient's companion on their journey.

The Dream Not Yet will enrich you with insight and understanding not only of yourself, but of others. John opens the door and allows us to enter - to be a 'fly on the wall' - and so witness his patients' inner thoughts, confusion and pain.

The intimate encounters in this book are deeply moving and at times disturbing, but always leave us with a strong sense of hope and faith in the human spirit and its capacity for change.

The storytelling in this extra-ordinary book is brought alive by the use of exquisite photography, poetry and is complimented further by unique diagrams, leaving the reader with a clear understanding of seemingly complex issues.

Dr. Clarkson breaks down the barriers of jargon and over-technical language that often denies us access to the understanding of our psyche; sharing his professional knowledge and wisdom as he does so.

The Dream Not Yet masters de-mystification making the complex simple!

'The Dream Not Yet' - Book Review

"John Clarkson's patients are his teachers. His wisdom is insightful and instructive. The words and images resonate within me as a psychotherapist, and mother." 
Debbie Paulik 
Psychotherapist

"Books of this genre seek to offer you answers. This book doesn't pretend to have the answers but, if you are willing, rewards you with the question should you need to ask of yourself." 
Dr Joe Cardaci 
Physician

"Many societies 'pass on' their wisdom with picture and story. Using beautiful photographic imagery to complement a compassionate narrative, John 'passes on' from himself and others a collective wisdom into how we think and why we act... not to be missed." 
Bob Wardell B.A. 
Teacher
