In The Press

This invaluable little book punches above its 156 page weight, delivering common-sense advice and insight into that most revered aspect of the therapeutic encounter: the relationship between a counsellor and client...The book's strength lies in its ability to make a  complex subject understandable, without dumbing down. I particularly liked each chapter's 'personal reflection', which invites the reader to think more deeply about some of the ideas raised.  
The quality of the counselling relationship is often the key to helping clients explore, change and grow. This is a book that can accompany that journey, providing a warm, knowledgeable voice to allay our fears, correct our misperceptions and encourage us to believe in ourselves. I have no doubt it will find its way onto many reading lists.
