Counsellors in training, their tutors and also experienced counsellors will find this book challenging and refreshing … I strongly recommend this book to all counsellors who are interested in their own professional development as effective therapists and to trainers and teachers who wish to enhance the effectiveness of their training programmes. - Counselling in Primary Care Trust Newsletter
