cvr2Cuckoo Forevermore is a delightful, sexy satire on psychotherapy set in Sydney, Australia. A cast of lunatic therapists put “fun” back into dysfunctional.

Cuckoo Forevermore is both a satire of the psychotherapy profession and the story of a man’s journey towards manhood. It is funny, accurate, probing, and enlightening. It shows the dark underbelly of the so-called therapeutic professions with humor and insight. It’s about time an insider blew the whistle on an industry that has its own special scams, frauds, and rogues.”
