‘This fourth edition has all the strengths of the previous editions but includes a new chapter on recent developments in person-centred theory and practice, as well as a chapter on developments in research by John McLeod. The chapter on research, which comes at the end of the book, is an excellent explanation of why person-centred practitioners must both be informed by and engage with research, which will totally convince the doubters (like me).
The book remains an invaluable introduction to person-centred concepts and can be used as both a reference and a reminder for those already familiar with the approach, to inform practice, enrich supervision or as a study aid for students.
It is a resounding riposte to those who continue to refuse to acknowledge the clinical relevance and proven efficacy of this approach.’
Val Simanowitz, Person-Centred BACP Accredited Counsellor and Supervisor
'This book has influenced a generation of counsellors and the new edition continues to offer insight and wisdom' -
Janet Tolan, Psychotherapist and author of Skills in Person-Centred Counselling and Psychotherapy
'This fourth edition has been a very worthwhile endeavour. If this is to be Mearns and Thorne's last work of this type then it will be a lasting legacy for all counsellors and psychotherapists for some time to come and not just person-centred practitioners,. The updates are seamless and form a coherent state of the art presentation of person-centred theory and practice. Both novice and experienced therapists will find much to gain from reading this book, even if they have read previous editions. The addition of John McCleod's chapter strengthens this edition even further. Research on Person Centred Counselling is a comprehensive and in-depth introduction to the reasons for research, approaches to research and research on person-centred counselling itself. A highly commendable book' -
Sheila Haugh, Senior Lecturer MSc Person Centred Contemporary Psychotherapy and Applications, Metanoia, London
'Person-Centred Counselling in Action continues to inform and inspire my doctoral students and lead them to a deeper, much more nuanced understanding of the Person-Centred approach. Moreover, the book has been invaluable in instilling many of the core principles that enable them to become skilled practitioners, mindful of what the therapeutic relationship really means' -

Person-Centred Counselling in Action (Counselling in Action series)
Working at Relational Depth in Counselling and Psychotherapy
Developing Person-Centred Counselling (Developing Counselling series)
For someone with no psycology background, not the easiest read.
It's the only one I've kept prior my MA mainly because it's very informative, and easy to understand. It's a starting point for further research, a basic understanding but quite informative.
Both times I found the book engagingly and warmly written, and was totally absorbed by it.
It is very helpful to anyone in training as a counsellor, especially in the person-centred tradition, but it would be a good basis for the core conditions for counselling in any tradition,
It is also very helpful for someone like myself who wants to be reminded of the basic concepts of the practice of a counsellor.
I strongly recommend this book
