This latest edition may seem quite expensive to purchase, but it is worth its weight in gold. It is a comprehensive resource likely to be of great value to students on counselling courses. Impressively well-researched with references to recent research in the field which are up-to-date and relevant. You will not regret buying this for your bookshelf as you will find yourself referring to it again and again.

I've just started my Certificate in Counselling Skills course and its already providing me with lots of useful information. From the content, it looks like I will be able to use it in future courses too as it is both academic and practical.

I have updated my copy of this excellent text and the latest 5th edition is proving an invaluable resource yet again.

John McLeod writes in a very accessible, easy-to-read style, yet he does not compromise on content. With seven new chapters, this book offers, not just an introduction to the breadth and depth of counselling, but an up-to-date exploration of models and theories, ethics, current issues, the many aspects of practice, and a critical evaluation of the field. Each chapter ends with a conclusion, recommendations for further reading and questions to prompt reflection and discussion.

This text is a useful resource for students at all levels of training. I first bought a copy of this text many years ago when I first started counselling training - it has proved to be invaluable. Each new edition seems to have grown with me and offered more. As I move on to a doctorate in counselling psychology this latest 5th edition remains an excellent resource. I highly recommend this book.
