Our students come from the caring and teaching professions and voluntary sector in the UK and overseas. They do not have the time to spend researching the basics of counselling theory, models and approaches. This textbook does the preliminary research in counselling for the student and then suggests further reading. It is an excellent practical resource for a student or practitioner of counselling.”
