About the Author

Mark Prever is Counsellor, trainer and supervisor, and Lead professional for Every Child Matters at Yardleys School in Birmingham. He is a former chair of Counselling Children and Young People a division of The British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy. Mark writes and regularly and is author of Mental Health in Schools: A Guide to Pastoral and Curriculum Provision, SAGE.


"Mark Prever writes with considerable passion. He is passionately committed to the person-centred approach and all that is has to offer the worlds of education and counselling. He is also passionately concerned with the well-being of children and young people and the alleviation of their suffering. His book is permeated by this dual commitment. It is scholarly without ever becoming arid; it is enlivened by numerous case studies which demonstrate the breadth and depth of his experience; it is encouraging for all those already engaged in work with young people and for many it will be a source of inspiration when the going gets rough and problems seem intractable." - Brian Thorne, Emeritus Professor of Counselling, University of East Anglia, Norwich and Co-founder of The Norwich Centre ______________________________________ "...both interesting and was enriching to see the Person Centred Approach in the context of working with children and young people. This book would be an excellent aid for both student counsellors and a very valuable reminder to experienced practitioners of the core principles and values of the approach. It illuminates for the reader the importance of the relationship between therapist and client within the Person Centred Approach." - Carmel Mullan-Hartley, Person Centred Counsellor, Supervisor and Trainer, Open Door Youth Counselling
