`Conveys valuable information... Paul Wilkins writes well... With the current emphasis by accrediting counselling organizations on the importance of ongoing personal and professional development, this book would be a salutary place to start on such a journey... The book explores what is meant by "fit to practise" and highlights the need to provide a better service to those who seek the skills of a counsellor. With the increasing emphasis on the need for better praxis in the field, it is vital that counsellors practise what they preach. If they fail to pay attention to their own ongoing well-being, they should not be surprised if the therapy they offer to others is seen to be marred by the shadow of hypocrisy' - Counselling, The Journal of the British Association for Counselling



`A helpful guide for newly qualified counsellors. It gives some comprehensive ideas and tips for further development... a useful book' - Self & Society

Well-paced and presented in a clear, practical and authoritative way, this book offers information and guidance... Each chapter is well structured... Highlighted boxes contain valuable information... Quotations add to the richness of the text... this book has helped me to question my developmental needs and I certainly intend following up some of its ideas and suggestions' - Counselling News
