Juliet Grayson, a UKCP registered psychotherapist, is a finalist in national people’s book prize!
The book, Landscapes of the Heart: The working world of a sex and relationship therapist, has been nominated as a finalist for The People’s Book Prize. This is the only major book prize in which the winners are determined entirely by the public vote.
There has been stiff competition, with hundreds of titles nominated nationally this year by their publishers. Forty non-fiction books were then put to a public vote. This has now been whittled down to just 12 finalists. This literature award has had several significant previous winners including best-selling children’s author and TV celebrity David Walliams for his first book Mr Stink.
It is a major stepping stone for new authors, and this is the first book written by Juliet Grayson. It would be a real coup to have a therapy book, written by a UKCP therapist, as a winner. Juliet is accredited by both COSRT and NLPtCA.
“Juliet has the ability to enthral with her narrative. Within a few lines, I was gripped as if reading a page-turning thriller, wanting to know what happened next. It’s compelling and enlightening”.
Commenting on the nomination Juliet Grayson said: “I was thrilled that my publishers, Jessica Kingsley, initially put me forward for this award. And I’m bursting with excitement that I’ve had enough votes to be a finalist, and spread the word about the effectiveness of therapy.”
She went on to explain, “Most couples leave it too long, before coming for help. If we can persuade them that it is wise to ask for support and that the earlier they start therapy the easier it is to change, that would make a real difference.” The book has its own website; Landscapes of the Heart.

The People’s Book Prize winner will be announced on 8th May 2019 following a further public vote, at the Stationers Hall in London, with patron of the foundation, Frederick Forsyth CBE, presenting the awards. The second round of voting takes place from 1st April 2019 to 30th April. To support Juliet, and help a psychotherapist to win, please vote for Landscapes of the Heart.
