This new Fifth Edition of Richard Nelson-Jones' bestselling Practical Counselling & Helping Skills presents the core skills needed to be a successful counsellor.

Fully revised and updated, the text is based on the Relationship-Understanding-Changing (RUC) lifeskills counselling model. This provides a systematic approach for clients to develop specific lifeskills to change how they feel, think, communicate and act, and this book provides ways for the counsellor to facilitate this change.

Practical Counselling & Helping Skills guides the reader through the three different stages of the RUC model - 'relating', 'understanding' and 'changing'.

Areas covered include:

}how to listen to, and understand, the client and their problem

} the assessment of feelings, reactions and communications

} intervention

}ethical issues.

The book is packed with case studies and practical examples for the trainee counsellor, and the 'activities' within each chapter enable the student to put theory into practice. This text will be invaluable to all those undertaking counselling training for the first time in a variety of different settings.
