Reviews

As a dominantly clinical practitioner who nonethelessretains an active interest in research, and particularlyphenomenological research, I found this book both useful andinformative. ( The Indo-Pacific Journal ofPhenomenology, 1 May 2013) Phenomenology when it is done well discloses, transforms and inspires. That is why it excitesme, why I am passionate about it ... Fortunately, this doesnot need to stand in the way of readers making use of thisotherwise excellent book in their own way and for their ownpractice-relevant research needs. (CounsellingPsychology Review, 2 June 2012)"The many current research examples provide a useful andeasy-to-read description of what is possible in phenomenologicalresearch. This book is a wonderful addition to qualitativemethodology texts and I would recommend it as a standard text foranyone considering counselling/ psychotherapy research." (TherapyToday, 1 December 2011)
