I first came across the notion of Relational Depth in the 3rd edition of Mearns and Thorne’s Person-Centred Counselling in Action, 3rd edition (2008) which led me to Mearns and Cooper’s Working at relational depth in Counselling and Psychotherapy (2005) which is, up to now, the only text fully dedicated to the phenomena as named.
In the literature, relational depth is described most succinctly as “a state of profound contact and engagement between two people, in which each person is fully real with the Other, and able to understand and value the Other’s experience at a high level.” (Mearns & Cooper 2005). This is to say that, relational depth can be experienced by anyone in any relationship providing the right conditions and sufficient depth is present. But what are the right conditions? What amount of depth is sufficient? And, can anyone really say what relational depth actually is? In terms of the therapeutic relationship; can relational depth be measured? Can a therapist do anything to encourage the phenomena to emerge in session? And, how is it perceived as valuable by the client in therapy? The book under review is a collection of recent studies, experiences and essays based around the concept of relational depth which attempt to explore the subject further.
The text is divided into three parts to group together what is essentially an eclectic mix of reflections, suggested techniques and related perspectives which offer to inform us ‘exactly where we are up to at the moment’ with the topic. Part 1 begins with each of the authors describing an actual moment of relational depth from practice; this really brings the book to life as actual examples in this case are much better than a description of what I have referred to earlier as a notion.
