Useful for Coaches as well as therapists,

This review is from: Wordweaving: Question is the Answer v. 2 (Paperback)
As an executive coach, I strongly believe in the power of asking crucial questions to help clients change. The same is true in therapy. In this book Trevor Silvester provides a useful framework for formulating the initial questions that help the client to get to grips with their problem, and also help them to clarify the solution they want to achieve. The book has a fairly strong NLP focus and is more practically based than the first Wordweaving title. This initial core aim of the book is achieved fairly efficiently and the book then begins to feel a bit "padded" as it introduces interesting but slightly peripheral topics. For example there is a 40 page chapter on thinking lucky. This is interesting, but the reader is probably best advised to go to Richard Wiseman's original book "The Luck Factor" for this.
Nonetheless, this is a useful book for structuring coaching or therapy sessions. I would recommend it in conjunction with "Gold Counselling" by Georges Philips and Lyn Buncher; and RESOLVE by Richard Bolstad; both of which will contribute to your structuring of client sessions.
