More About the Author

Pete Sanders worked for over 30 years as a counsellor, founded BACP Accredited counsellor training courses in Wigan and Manchester, and supervised counsellors for many years. He co-founded PCCS Books and has written, co-written and edited a number of books, chapters and papers on many aspects of counselling, psychotherapy and mental health. Pete has a keen interest in the politics of therapy and co-edited 'Politicizing the Person-Centred approach: an agenda for social change' in 2006.
He is a member of the Pre-Therapy International Network and and edited 'The Contact Work Primer: An introduction to Pre-Therapy and the work of Garry Prouty' in 2007.
Pete worked as a nursing assistant in mental hospitals in late 1960s and early 70s before and during his psychology degree. His life and career as a counsellor, psychotherapist and clinical supervisor have been influenced more by those early work experiences than by any subsequent qualification. He is currently interested in the de-medicalisation of distress, the political implications of psychotherapy and radical applications of person-centred therapy. He is a trustee of the Soteria Network UK.

Review

Much more than a primer ... this is a superb practical introduction to Pre-Therapy and contact work that will be of value to all mental health professionals working with contact-impaired individuals --Mick Cooper, Professor of Counselling Psychology, Strathclyde University

About the Author

Pete Sanders worked for over 25 years as a counsellor, founded BAC Accredited counsellor training courses in Wigan and Manchester, and supervised counsellors for many years. He got fed up with the values of Education in Britain in the Thatcher years and left to set up PCCS Books with his wife, Maggie. He has written several books and articles on counselling and still dabbles at the fringes with odd contributions here and there. He now spends most of his time concentrating on creating a strong library of published person-centred literature through the work of PCCS Books.
