'Andrew Reeves has produced a very useful and clear introduction to the field. An excellent addition to Sage's growing list on counselling and\psychotherapy' -
Windy Dryden, Professor of Psychotherapeutic Studies and Programme Co-ordinator of the MSc in Rational-Emotive and Cognitive Behaviour Therapy at Goldsmiths, University of London

'I have taught on both postgraduate diploma and masters programmes for counselling training, and would have really appreciated having this book available to myself and the students. I would have no problems in recommending this book to trainee counsellors' -
Judith Fewell, Honorary Fellow, University of Edinburgh

This is a mightily ambitious book, and one which I would have probably hugged on discovering a decade ago, as I muddled my way through the difficult decision to re-train as a therapist. It's not just the sheer volume of information it contains that is impressive, but all the generous thoughts and ideas that go with it - chapter overviews and plenty of re-caps, further online and offline reading suggestions, discussion points, skills practice sections, case vignettes and even a companion website offering PowerPoints for tutors. Ultimately it achieves what it sets out to be: `a book about practice, by a practitioner' - and one I'd highly recommend to anyone lured by the idea of a career in talking therapy. -- Julia Bueno * Private Practice *
Questions for discussion and pauses for reflection encourage active engagement with the text. Other features include numerous case studies, suggestions for further reading and a companion website with additional resources. The book is clearly set out and thoroughly user-friendly, which should make it a helpful companion along the way for anyone contemplating counselling or therapy training, and a great resource for trainers. -- Dr Els van Ooijen

This book happily combines authoritative knowledge and experience with a winning and engaging style... it is certainly worth the price of the paperback as an investment not only for trainees, but also for qualified counsellors wanting to keep up with their thinking and development.

-- David Quarmby * Healthcare Counselling and Psychotherapy Journal *
