This little book is a great introduction to how Bill O'Hanlon does therapy - and gives a range of easy 'try it out' techniques that you can use with your own clients. This book is definitely designed for therapists, and is VERY practical and to the point. Each of the fifty-one methods is outlined clearly with examples over one or two pages. What you don't get it is a lot of the underlying framework and (dare I say it) theory behind it all (try Cade & O'Hanlon's 'A Brief Guide to Brief Therapy' for that), but it's great to dip into for interest, or new ideas to try when wondering what on earth to do next with a client. It's got a sense of humour too!

Amazing! I love Bill's approach to work, so full of enthusiasm and wonder. This readily accesible text is just so handy for anyone working in the counselling or therapy field. Particuarly if you ever feel 'stuck' working with cases then this is for you.
Even if you dont feel stuck then this is still for you!
Just buy it.

As always with O'Hanlon lots of delightful humour, some intriguing ideas, and helpful tactics. However, if you have read any of his earlier work this book will not extend your knowledge or skills. I would, though, heartily recommend it as an introduction to the field of solution-focused therapy.

Recommended by a friend given as a present. Went down even better than I expected. She's training to be a mental health nurse and this book has never left her side since she got it. She loved the different way that this book has been laid out. Think the recipient of this book would give it 5.

I found most of the book very motivating and inspiring, allowing me to think of different aproaches with clients, i did find myself wincing at some of the "examples" of replies to clients, however this still brought me to reflect on my own approach to possibility land while acknowleging , with respect, the client's situation.

I found the book usefull and would recomend it
