5.0 out of 5 stars counselling skills 28 July 2009
I have borrowed this book from my library and was so interested in it I decided to purchase it. It is the best book on counselling I have read so far and is written in simple, easy to read language. I particularly liked the examples given in each chapter to illustrate how a counsellor should respond to the client. It also thought of the counsellor's needs as well as it can be stressful dealing with clients and the use of the counsellor's supervisor. A good read if thinking of going into the counselling profession.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good 26 Dec 2013
Book was sent on time, and as it was a library copy, the description was as it said. The book is very straightforward and covers the basic skills in a way which can be applied by counsellors in training at any stage. A good book to add to the collection.
