"I think that the authors have clearly and skilfully illuminated the basic principles and processes of counselling. I found it a valuable way to remind myself of the basics and make some small amendments to my own mental map of the counselling journey." (NZAC Counselling Today, 1 December 2010)

"This book enables us to revisit a number of counselling fundamentals. First, that it is the quality of the relationship between two people which is paramount. Second, that one hat does not fit all – we must tailor our approach to each individual. And third, that counselling doesn't cure people, it simply facilitates naturally occurring psychological change processes. Wonderfully illustrated with case examples, this book is clearly written and down-to-earth. A must-read for beginners and experienced counsellors alike."
Professor Robin Davidson, Queens University Belfast
