This is the first book on counselling skills to look in detail at the practical interventions and tools used to establish the therapeutic relationship. Step-by-step, the text teaches the reader exactly how to use these skills with clients to address their concerns and achieve therapeutic change.

Integrative and pluralistic in approach, the text covers the key techniques from all the major therapeutic models, placing them in their historical and theoretical contexts. Techniques covered include empathic responding, experiential focusing, Gestalt, metaphors, task-directed imagery, ego state therapy, solution focused therapy, cognitive behvioral therapy, narrative therapy and self-in-relationship therapy. The book:

- presents each technique from the perspective of its underlying theory;

- gives practical instruction on how to deliver each intervention;

- provides extracts from counselling sessions to demonstrate the technique in action.

This book is crucial reading for all trainees on counselling and psychotherapy courses or preparing to use counselling techniques in a range of other professional settings. It is also helpful for professionals who wish to acquire additional skills.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'This original and sophisticated book provides advanced students with a focused introduction to the main schools of counselling, offering detailed, accurate and highly specific information about each counselling technique. Ideal reading for postgraduate psychology students, counselling psychology trainees or trainee counsellors, I would recommend this book for my students.' - Dr Fiona Starr, Chartered Clinical Psychologist and Principal Lecturer, School of Health and Social Sciences, Middlesex University


'This book is a pleasure to read. Written in an easy-to-follow format the contents provide the reader with not only the theory of each technique but more importantly the ways in which it can be used. Therapists will find this a useful addition to their bookshelves and to their therapeutic work in general. As someone who taught on Diploma and Masters programmes in Counselling, this book will also be of considerable use to trainee therapists and tutors alike.' - Gladeana McMahon, Co-Director, Centre for Stress Management and Chair of the Association for Coaching UK
