Chloe is beautiful and fiercely bright, but her thirst for booze and attention is insatiable.

Sara resents being tied down to anything, but part of her craves stability.

Elliot is secretly grieving the death of his famous lover and feels like he’s invisible.

The lives and problems of psychotherapist Charlotte Fox Weber’s clients vary, but all are united by a common question: what do I really want?

In What We Want, Charlotte Fox Weber takes us on a journey through twelve universal wants and desires, bringing us behind the closed doors of her practice. It is at once a fly-on-the-wall look at what binds us all, an expression of the profound importance of understanding and articulating our desires, and a practical toolkit for living well.

Natasha Lunn, author of CONVERSATIONS ON LOVE
Finely crafted, profound and always generous, What We Want is a very special book. Charlotte doesn't provide neat answers that promise to change your life - instead she invites you to see the one you are living anew, in all its shining complexity. It made me feel excited to be alive
Christie Tate, author of GROUP
By bringing readers behind the scenes of her intimate therapy sessions, Weber makes a powerful case for articulating desire as a path toward greater mental health and self-actualization. This hopeful book demystifies the therapeutic alliance between counsellor and patient and will surely convince even the most sceptical critic that effective counselling can truly transform lives. Most of all, this book provides a roadmap of how one might approach their own transformation by becoming willing to admit their deepest desires
One of those books that will make you look at your life (and self) anew.
If more therapists followed Charlotte Fox Weber's directive to ask patients what they really, deeply want, rather than focusing on burdens and constraints, there might be fewer cold cases locked in that psychological storage facility
