Widely regarded as a classic text, Person-Centred Counselling in Action has now been revised and updated to take account of recent developments in theory and practice. This bestselling exploration of one of the most popular approaches in counselling today is invaluable for students and experienced counsellors alike.
The authors explore the philosophical base to the approach originated by Carl Rogers and stress the considerable personal demands which it places upon practitioners. Using a comprehensive case study to relate theory to practice, they discuss in depth the core conditions of empathy, acceptance and congruence. Central to the book is the insight it provides into how it feels to be the counsellor and the client involved in a trusting, caring, therapeutic relationship.
