Jane Haynes writes a piece on Literature in the Consulting Room for Book Brunch

‘Somehow, I cracked the reading code before I arrived at any school. I remember sitting in the back garden of my London home and watching my pet tortoise slowly munching through lettuce leaves as I tried to crunch letters. Heavens knows how I eventually translated random signs on the page into words, because I am useless at crosswords, Scrabble or jigsaws. It felt like magic. And it was.’

Jane Haynes explains why literature is so important to her in her practice as a psychotherapist for Book Brunch. You can read the article here and get your copy of the book here on Wednesday.
