When John Kim was going through the end of a relationship, he began blogging as The Angry Therapist, documenting his personal journey post-divorce. Even though he is a licensed therapist, he chose not to present himself that way. He was Clark Kent at work, treating clients in residential treatment with the DSM in hand and a shirt and tie. But online and in his private practice, he wore a cape, he was a truth-telling Superman.
The Angry Therapist exploded and led Kim to a new way of doing therapy. He spoke a different therapeutic language and people responded. Traditional therapists avoid transparency, but Kim preferred the language of “me too” as opposed to “you should.” He blogged about his own shortcomings, revelations, views on relationships, and the world. People emerged from the blogosphere eager to work with him. He had sessions in coffee shops, on walks around a lake, online with people from all around the world, and devised a new, simpler, and more effective way to help people change. The Angry Therapist blog has been featured in The Atlantic Monthly and on NPR.
The Angry Therapist- A No BS Guide to Finding and Living Your Own Truth shares Kim’s radical new approach to creating a life of growth and change. He thinks of himself as a lifestyle designer, not a therapist, and he helps people make changes to their lives so that personal growth happens organically, just by living. Traditional therapy is becoming a luxury, few of us have the time or money to devote to going to an office every week. Kim’s approach is easy, real, and to-the-point. With anecdotes illustrating principles in action (in relatable and sometimes irreverent fashion) and stand-alone practices and exercises, Transparency examines the power of story and helps you focus on what’s right with you instead of what’s wrong.
