'In this edition, Colin Feltham and Ian Horton have added a wealth of new material - and brought all of the previously included topics up to date - reflecting current trends in counselling and psychotherapy, as well as changes in society which have an impact on practice within these specialisms. This book is the definitive text on the theory and practice of counselling and psychotherapy, covering a wide range of theories, professional issues and guidance for engaging with both general and specialist clinical problems. This book more than many others defines the field and scope of contemporary counselling and psychotherapy. The editors are to be commended for bringing together in one specialist textbook such a wide range of practical, engaging, readable and useful contributions from leaders in their respective fields. It will appeal as much to experienced practitioners and trainees, as it will to those from different professional groups and therapeutic modalities' -

'The field of counselling and psychotherapy moves on but the Sage Handbook of Counselling and Psychotherapy keeps up! This amazing book is packed full of up to date chapters on just about every topic a student needs to know about as well as providing an invaluable resource for practitioners to keep them informed. The list of contributing authors is impressive and all are experienced practitioners drawing on their specialist knowledge and expertise. Research has a higher profile in this new edition, a good indicator that it is being taken more seriously by counsellors and psychotherapists as they see its relevance for informing services fit for the 21st century. It should have pride of place on every therapist's bookshelf' -

'The what's what from the who's who in counselling in psychotherapy' -
Professor Del Loewenthal, RCTE, University of Roehampton
'The third edition of the Sage Handbook offers the most comprehensive account of the knowledge base of the profession in Great Britain. At about 700 pages and with contributions from more than 100 authors the editors have shown considerable skill, not to mention application, in sculpting a text that is economically delivered and lucid in its writing. A text such as this needs to be updated regularly so that it continues to be a referent for the profession. I imagine that practitioners and especially institutions associated with the profession will feel the need to purchase each new edition in order to keep up with the rapid developments in counselling and psychotherapy' -
