Unlike Retail Therapy involving the latest Chanel (or Lanvin or Miu Miu) must-have, a shopping high, and an inevitable credit card hangover, HANDBAG THERAPY is a fabulously cheap thrill ($15) which actually gives back. “It’s about providing practical insights and answers,” explains the UK's only official handbag therapist, Debbie Percy, a life coach and corporate human-resources specialist who uses her credentials to analyze the contents of a handbag, purse, backpack - or even manbag - to see what it reveals about the owner. Instead of uncomfortable probing questions and long-winded sessions on the analyst's couch, it's a more lighthearted and pain-free way to make positive changes. “It’s about helping people improve their lives or simply get more out of it … and at £9.99 (approximately 11 Euros) it’s much cheaper than traditional therapy,” laughs Debbie. “And a lot more fun!”
