Real-Life Drama from the Psychotherapist’s Chair with Dr Natalie Cawley

August 20 @ 18:30 21:00

Join us in the shop for an evening with Manchester author, Dr Natalie Cawley as she introduces her debut book Just About Coping. In honest stories from her own life crises and the experiences of some of her patients as she trains to be a psychotherapist, Dr Natalie Cawley takes us on a journey into the therapy room.

At the psychotherapist’s clinic of an NHS hospital, Noah needs help procrastination, Bill compulsively lies, Steph is coping with rejection and their therapist, Dr Natalie Cawley, is dealing with her own emotional crisis, breathing into a paper bag between patient sessions.

In this honest, often poignant and frequently funny memoir about training to be a psychotherapist, we meet the patients grappling with their mental health issues, from OCD and addiction to self-deception and toxic relationships, and see how Dr Natalie helps then understand and change these attempts to self-soothe.

Full of lightbulb moments, Just About Coping is a journey into our inner worlds, where the drama of our break-ups, breakdowns and breakthroughs takes place. In the times of stress and suffering, Dr Natalie reveals, we are all just coping. None of is is immune – not even your therapist.


Dr Natalie Cawley is a psychotherapist and counselling psychologist with a BSc, MSc and PsychD in psychology and has worked and trained in both the HNS and private practice, with paediatric and adult services. Her experience covers a wide range of health conditions and clinical presentations in the community and within psychiatric hospitals. Her specialism in attachment theory, the driving force behind our psychological and emotional functioning, informs all her therapeutic work. Her hobbies include stand-up comedy – mostly watching, although she has performed a set about bad dates the went better than expected.
