Format: Paperback
A fantastic Book. Suitable for all levels of Counselling Study. Excellent Value for Money. Gives a wide range of information from starting the counselling learning process explaining the core conditions in great depth but in a very understandable language that does not confuse, to ending sessions & counselling relationships. I found it very interesting to read how the author explained Counsellor self care in depth,encouraging all levels of counsellor to ensure they 'look after themselves too'. I enjoyed reading the case studies immensely, and extracts from sessions very useful. The book helped disperse some of the fears & worries about how to approach different areas of counselling and gave me new ideas about how to deal with difficult clients & situations that can arise with a wide variety of clients. Excellent readable layout, Very highly Recommended.

Format: Paperback
This classic text is a must for anyone studying Person-centred counselling. I have to admit, I find the text a bit turgid, so packed with information it is a little hard to digest in a sitting, but it's a seminal work and worth the wading.

Format: Paperback
This is the first book that gave me a real idea of how counselling works in practice. Also, it makes the theory understandable because it is always linked with examples. I tended to be rather cautious with clients but this has freed me up to be more myself. I recommend this book to any students learning about relationships with clients.

11 of 12 people found the following review helpful By Ms. C. Hynes on 31 Jan. 2010
Format: Paperback
I found this book very helpful to me as I am participating on a diploma course for person-centered counselling. The author highlights how important it is to look after the "self" as a counsellor, and also includes comments and thoughts from counsellors who have provided their own case studies. I did find the case studies very interesting, as it gave me a good insight into what is good and what can be tricky when dealing with a client. This book was easy to read and understand, and not too much complicated jargon, and I feel would be helpful tool for a person-centred trainee counsellor.

I can't recommend this book enough for those beginning their journey in person-centred counselling, or for those like me who wish to reconnect with their theoretical base and brush up on their knowledge. Janet Tolan has a very accessible writing style, which is a breath of fresh air in academic texts, and the guest contributors have either been chosen well or taken great care to write in a similar style.
