Excellent resource for the beginner,
This review is from: An Introduction to Counselling (Paperback)Starting out I wanted an easy to read, theoretical, yet pragmatic introduction to counselling. McLeod's book was it. It wasn't a recommended book, but it provided me with a professional insight into the concepts taught on my course in easy to understand, and interesting language. The set questions at the end of each chapter were most welcome, and supplemented the course content brilliantly.
It is a hefty tome, but definitely well worth the outlay for the student counsellor and the interested researcher alike. As a complete beginner, I needed something clear, something that would provide a basic understanding of the approaches and issues involved in counselling. I couldn't have picked a better companion.
