This book is eesential reading for those wanting a detailed overview of counselling and psychotherapy. I bought it myself to get this overview as I was exploring the field and I wasn't disappointed. The author presents a clear historical perspective to counselling and psychotherapy and there are detailed chapters on all of the main approaches. Personally, I love this book. It helped me draw conclusions about the right direction for my own education and training in psychotherapy and counselling and helped me set the approach I have chosen in context. As the book sets this as one of its goals, I couldn't have asked for anything more.

I bought this book as part of my study in the field of psycho-hypnotherapy. It is an excellent book. However, as I am dyslexic I looked for the audio version of the book, which I could not unfortunately find. I find it disappointing that scientific, and social science books are rare to find in audio version. I appreciate it immensely if anybody could help.
