For over 25 years, Counselling for Toads has provided readers around the world with a warm and engaging introduction to counselling, brought to life by Toad and his friends from Kenneth Grahame’s The Wind in the Willows

In this sample chapter, we join Toad at his first counselling session after being convinced by his friends to seek help for his depression. Heron, his counsellor, explains the counselling process to a hesitant Toad, who eventually agrees to work with Heron so that he can understand himself better and improve his life. 

Also included is a new essay by Louise de Board, the author's daughter, about her father's full and varied life and the lasting impact and relevance of Counseling for Toads for today's readers.
