About the Book

We are all naked under our clothes but most of the time we are not aware of this, and even if we are, we don’t feel as exposed as we would do, if we were really naked. Just as we conceal our bodies, from ourselves as well as others, so we also hide our psychological selves with a collection of identities, roles, attitudes, fears, and prejudices. They serve a similar purpose for our psyche as do our clothes for our body. They hide our psychological nakedness and support the way we present ourselves to the outside world. Ultimately, in life, we are alone and naked and whatever thoughts and communications come to us, we have to counsel ourselves. So we are all naked counsellors.


This book is designed to enable you, the reader, to counsel yourself about a number of topics that are fundamental to your success in life. There are a series of Chapters, each of which deals with a life enhancing topic and at the end of which, there are a series of questions entitled ‘Self Counselling’. You ask yourself the questions and look at the answers and if you record these in the spaces provided, you will personalise the book, adding value and making it of special worth to you.
