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.

About the Author

An excellent summary of the person-centred approach, with enough detail to enable a very thorough understanding of the subject without being overwhelmed.

An absolute god-send for those struggling to remember the 6 necessary and sufficient conditions and other Rogerian need-to-know's; Especially useful at level 3 and Diploma - and it's written by a very nice chap too! :)

It reminds me of the summary books you could get when taking English exams, but better. Essential detail in a nutshell. Easy to read, so much detail - well impressed. Bought to help at Certificate level.

After feeling a little lost & out of my depth reading some of the other books on Person-centred Counselling, this is a great little book that introduces the theory, with a little background & full explanation as to the meanings of the language found in other books.

This book is very well written, easy to read & also offers insight & points those on Diploma level or above in the right direction as to what to look into further.

Would recommend this book to anyone wanting to embark on a Diploma level Counselling/Psychotherapy course

A well written book, with a clear style and packed with useful information. I found that it complemented other books \I have very well, filling in gaps and answering questions that I had not easily found answers to in larger tomes.

Handy for just dipping in and out. Keep at hand during lessons and when out and about, appointments as it's easy to just pick up and put down and explains what I need to know simply.

This is a great book. It is exactly what it says - a primer in person centred counselling , so it does what it says on the label. As usual a coherent read by Pete Sanders.

The basics of person-centred counselling are all here and put across in a very readable and easy-to-understand manner. If you're learning to be a counsellor, this is a must-have. And if you're not, but want to learn how to listen to friends better, this is a must-have.
