Product Description

Review

A fantastically engaging, comprehensive and down-to-earth guide to counselling practice. Animated throughout with exercises, notes from experts in the field, and vignettes of clients and therapeutic work, the book makes an ideal all-in-one-guide for trainee counsellors. --Mick Cooper, Professor of Counselling, Strathclyde University

This complete revision of the best selling first edition is destined to become a core text both for students on professional counselling trainings and for those developing their competence in using counselling skills as part of a related profession. The book is unique within the field, written in a very accessible, personal and interactive style and is laid out to cover key themes which focus on the development of good counselling practice. It helpfully includes reflective exercises, vignettes from counselling practice, suggestions for further reading and a running glossary of terms used. An invaluable companion to training, the book will provide a much needed foundation for students making the often daunting next step from practicing their counselling skills to beginning real face to face counselling practice. Highly recommended. --Peter Pearce, Metanoia Institute

Next Steps in Counselling almost constitutes a counselling training course in its own right. The material is wide ranging covering many of the areas I consider necessary for the trainee counsellor. The experienced counsellor might also gain learning from the book, and counsellor trainers should at least give it a passing glance. Although the content is close and compact, the reader is neither overwhelmed nor confused by the ideas offered. This is because the text is organised into manageable, meal sized chunks of information and suggestions. The layout of the book, as with the others in this series, encourages the reader to follow up particular areas of interest with further explanations, experiences of the authors and additional reading suggestions. I would recommend this book without hesitation to any practitioner. --Sheila Haugh, Leeds Metropolitan University

This book will be the perfect companion for Diploma and Certificates courses in HE. Everything is covered at the right level, with additional notes, case studies and lots of new material covering current debates and controversies, firmly locating counselling and relationship based helping in the 21st century. The references are bang up-to-date. Our tutor team agree this will be an excellent new resource. --Louise Young, Academic Director, Univeristy of East Anglia

About the Author

Pete Sanders completed his full-time diploma in counselling at the University of Aston in 1974. He worked as a counsellor, trainer and supervisor in further education and private practice for over 25 years. Pete was the lead tutor in three BACP recognised training courses and was instrumental in the Trainer Accreditation Scheme. He has written, edited and/or contributed to over a dozen books on counselling and psychotherapy, specialising in person-centred therapy. Alan Frankland is a psychologist who has been counselling for over twenty-five years. Formerly Principal Lecturer and Head of the Division of Counselling and Psychotherapy at Nottingham Trent University, he is now the BPS Stipendiary Registrar for Counselling Psychology. A Fellow of BACP and a BPS Chartered Counselling Psychologist, he has served on committees within both organizations for many years. His current work with BPS mirrors an earlier (non-stipendiary) role he had with BAC when he chaired the Individual Accreditation process for some years. He is a former Chair of the BPS Division of Counselling Psychology and was for a time an elected member of Council and the BPS Board of Directors. Paul Wilkins is an academic and therapist deeply committed to the person-centred approach about which he has written papers, chapters and books. His doctoral study was concerned with what it means to be person-centred and he is currently as much interested in how to be person-centred as a researcher as he is in extending his understanding of person-centred theory and practice. He is passionate about the creativity he sees as inherent in the approach and seeks to apply this to all areas of his life. When he is not thinking, writing, researching or teaching, he enjoys the good things the world has to offer; wild places, music, wine and food, to name but a few.

5.0 out of 5 stars Course Book 29 Sep 2009
Format:Paperback
I am using this book as a core text for my diploma course, and have never had the benefit of such a great course `companion' before. I find the main text to be pitched at the right level - written in a straight forward way, but stretching me at the same time. Notes in the margins add all sorts of different complexions - additional information, quotes, activity suggestions, suggestions for further reading etc. Try this book. It is a huge asset.

5.0 out of 5 stars brilliant buy 8 Dec 2010
Format:Paperback
I am in my 2nd year of a foundation degree in counselling and I have also started in my work placement and this book is invaluable. It is one of the few books that I want to pick up and read voluntarily!! It has so much relevant information and is very easy to read. On the side of each page is extra information about each subject and there are plenty of case examples. definately a book I would recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential 4 Sep 2012
Format:Paperback
I have used this book for my level 3/4 and my level 5 HE diploma and it was essential. I first read it just after completing my level 2 and even then it made sense to me! The other students in the class kept coming to me for help with assignments before I gave in and told them all about this do-not-study-counselling-with-it book!
