Psychotherapist Peter Michaelson is a former journalist and science writer who possesses a unique ability to render depth psychology into easily understood self-help information. Peter has taken the best knowledge from depth psychology and made it simple enough that lay readers around the world can relate to on a personal level.
For more than 30 years, he has worked as a psychotherapist and refined his writing skills to help his readers and clients acquire the keys to valuable inner truth.
Peter spent the 1970s and early 1980s searching for answers to his own dissatisfaction and career setbacks. He tried many popular self-development methods, and most of these helped him out to some degree. But he still wasn’t flourishing or fulfilling his potential, so he knew some important aspect of his inner life was not being addressed.
Fortunately, while living in Florida, he heard about a psychotherapist who “works very deeply in the unconscious.” In 1985, he began doing weekly sessions with this psychotherapist. In these sessions, he acquired the insight that resolved the inner conflicts that had been disrupting his life.
Since then, he has been using this unique psychotherapy with his own clients. He has now written seven books, with an eighth soon to be published, that discuss different aspects of this deep approach. These books examine the causes of low self-esteem, addictions, indecision, compulsions, loneliness, depression, failure, self-sabotage, and inner passivity. He lives in Plymouth, Michigan.
He also distributes three other books, which were written by his late wife and fellow psychotherapist, Sandra Michaelson (1944-1999). Sandra’s books discuss this powerful depth psychology from the perspective of self-development, relationships, and codependency. She was also a psychotherapist, with a Master’s degree in psychology from Eastern Michigan University. She believed that psychology, at its most insightful, is able to deliver us to the doorway of enlightenment, and she led all of us who knew her into deeper self-understanding, toward joy and inner freedom.
