'What I think these stories do particularly well is expose and bring to the fore the therapist's latent world', in terms of the thoughts, feelings, and responses to clients, which so clearly guide the therapist in every moment of the interaction' -
'This is a collection of short stories which cunningly raise a wide range of professional issues relevant to many different models, in an entertaining and thought provoking way. I would highly recommend this book as a refreshing read for experienced counsellors and a very readable adjunct to academic material for students, but all the more as a tool for trainers' -
Meg Harper, Counsellor, writer and teacher
'These engaging, moving, informative, warm and surprising stories convey the key points in counselling and psychotherapy practice. Overall, a beautifully written book that should be a real asset to the counselling and psychotherapy literature.'
Mick Cooper, Professor of Counselling
University of Strathclyde
'I've read each of these stories through several times, simply because to do so was a sheer delight. They are written with warmth and humour, and give a valuable insight into the world of therapy.'
University of Wales, Newport
'I honestly thought this was the best book I have come across relating to therapy. I picked up more than I had in course handouts or from the reading list textbooks.'
