5.0 out of 5 stars Essential for therapists, 11 May 2009
By J. R. Hillman "John Hillman" - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)
All complementary therapists should study this book. It is essential reading for those who train therapists and bodyworkers and for supervisors. Those who work as counsellors and psychotherapists are aware of the importance of the relationship in the therapy process, but in other therapies this receives less emphasis. Su Fox has wide expertise and knowledge. She brings attention to topics that might be taken for granted and she does so with wisdom and a lightness of touch. Behind the particular skills and techniques of each therapy, there needs to be a clear understanding of generic issues such as boundaries, communication, power, sexuality and touch. Su presents each of these in a straightforward way. Throughout the book she includes exercises and questions to develop self-awareness. The ethical dilemmas she presents would be fruitful to discuss on study days and courses. If complementary therapy is your field, read this book; Su Fox knows what she is talking about!

5.0 out of 5 stars Profound, necessary and so, so helpful 28 Dec 2012
By Lady Fancifull TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
I can only concur with the earliest reviewer. Fox trained initially as a massage practitioner, and then later as a craniosacral therapist and a psychotherapist, and brings great insight into the complex relationship between practitioner and client.

Sadly, most massage bodywork trainings barely scratch the surface of this. Sure, everyone talks about self-reflection, and it is built into syllabi - but at an extremely superficial level, in the main. Su Fox, with warmth, heart, encouragement, keen sensitivity and intelligence guides the student and the experienced practitioner into sure and subtle precision. This is much more than 'theoretical'. There are excellent imaginative exercises to deepen sensory awareness of what may be happening, for therapist, for client, for the space between. Although i think Fox has much to bring to the table for all practitioners, the real strength for me is her bodyworker background, and her ability to suggest palpatory, kinaesthetic refinement, developing the hands on skills by a development of kinaesthetic awareness, so that the practitioner learns how to notice what is happening in her/his own felt sense, as well as what he/she may in observing in the client, and feeling in the client's tissues, as well as in the energetic field

Above all, Fox flies the flag for something insufficiently addressed in massage trainings, but which is of course a foundation of psychotherapy - the need for supervision or mentoring.

A brilliant book - as useful for an experienced practitioner as it is for a student at the start of this journey. And, what helps enormously, Fox writes well. Cherry and icing on the nutritious cake!

This is an excellent book. Informative and well written, I would highly recommend it.
I am a final year student studying for my Foundation Degree in Complementary Therapies and need to write an essay on 'the therapeutic relationship' this reading gave me an excellent insight into what might be required.
