Counselling for Toads: A Psychological Adventure by Robert de Board
5.0 out of 5 stars Highly recommend, 13 April 2012
I thoroughly enjoyed this book and found I couldn't put it down!

I approached this book with uncertainty as a former client and as a current student on an introduction to counselling course...I should not have been so skeptical.
This book gives a good picture of what counselling is (as well as what it isn't!), the basic stages of counselling, the therapeutic relationship and basic insights into transactional analysis. It does all of this while providing an entertaining read and bringing the characters from Wind in the Willows back to life.

All in all, a delightful read that entertains and informs - I would recommend this to absolutely everyone!
The Miracle Of Mindfulness: The Classic Guide to M&hellip by Thich Nhat Hanh

Sony D80 8 inch Digital Photoframe - Black by Sony

I bought this as a present for my boyfriend as it looks smart, was of a very reasonable price and without some of the problems reported with a number of other digital photoframes. He loves it and was impressed that the photos orientation is automatically corrected depending on whether the frame is landscape or portrait. The quality of the display is really good too.
It's not a problem for us but this only runs off the mains. Potentially a problem if you don't have a mains socket where you'd like to place the frame.

I'm very glad that I opted for this one and would highly recommend it.
