5.0 out of 5 stars Profound, necessary and so, so helpful, 28 Dec. 2012
This review is from: Relating to Clients: The Therapeutic Relationship for Complementary Therapists (Paperback)
I can only concur with the earliest reviewer. Fox trained initially as a massage practitioner, and then later as a craniosacral therapist and a psychotherapist, and brings great insight into the complex relationship between practitioner and client.

Sadly, most massage bodywork trainings barely scratch the surface of this. Sure, everyone talks about self-reflection, and it is built into syllabi - but at an extremely superficial level, in the main. Su Fox, with warmth, heart, encouragement, keen sensitivity and intelligence guides the student and the experienced practitioner into sure and subtle precision. This is much more than 'theoretical'. There are excellent imaginative exercises to deepen sensory awareness of what may be happening, for therapist, for client, for the space between. Although i think Fox has much to bring to the table for all practitioners, the real strength for me is her bodyworker background, and her ability to suggest palpatory, kinaesthetic refinement, developing the hands on skills by a development of kinaesthetic awareness, so that the practitioner learns how to notice what is happening in her/his own felt sense, as well as what he/she may in observing in the client, and feeling in the client's tissues, as well as in the energetic field

Above all, Fox flies the flag for something insufficiently addressed in massage trainings, but which is of course a foundation of psychotherapy - the need for supervision or mentoring.

A brilliant book - as useful for an experienced practitioner as it is for a student at the start of this journey. And, what helps enormously, Fox writes well. Cherry and icing on the nutritious cake!
