Demystifying psychotherapy, ‘Out of the Depths’ provides a rare opportunity to glimpse into the minds of both psychotherapist and client as they take the sometimes torrid path through psychotherapy. The story of Mary is based on the accounts of people with multiple personality disorder and those who endeavour to heal them. It describes how a deeply traumatised young woman attempts to piece together the fragments of her past. However, on her journey to find her true self and inner peace, she discovers she has further separate personalities in addition to her own. With each personality having individual needs, wishes and desires, will she find that they’re all on the path to healing, or is one personality intent on self-destruction?
