Industry Reviews

`This book probably answers all the questions you often wanted but never dared to ask about counselling. It covers numerous aspects of the counselling process from specific aspects of practice, orientation, ethical and professional... The section on personal issues regarding the counsellor is very interesting as it is an opportunity to hear what the experts have to say on such issues as the counsellor's life crisis, spirituality and what happens when values clash. Overall, this book provides a flavour of the problems which may be encountered by those involved in counselling' - The International Journal of Social Psychiatry

`This is a welcome addition to the series... On a couple of occasions, two practitioners present different views on the same issue: I found this particularly stimulating... Most of the counselling issues covered are of equal interest to clinical psychologists. I was especially struck by J E Wilson's chapter in response to the question, "What factors do I need to consider in developing a personal model of counselling?" Substitute clinical psychology for counselling, and the views expressed on finding a personal theory of meaning are just as important and applicable to our profession' - Clinical Psychology Forum

`The kind of book where any time you open it, you're likely to find something of current interest that relates to your practice and to issues you've been thinking about... If we regard the questions and answers as serving to stimulate thought and discussion... then the collection serves a useful purpose indeed' - Self & Society

`Covering a very wide range of topics... the book contains useful, interesting chapters' - International Review of Psychiatry
