Supported by a companion website (https://study.sagepub.com/mcleod) offering relevant journal articles, sample ethical consent forms, links to open access research tools and more, this is an indispensable resource for any counselling trainee or practitioner learning about the research process for the first time.

MEDIA REVIEWS

The third edition of this book doesn't disappoint. The thoughtful and accessible manner in which it is written lends it to being a valuable and highly recommended resource.

-- Dr Claudie Fox

This easy to navigate, comprehensive and crucial resource is a masterpiece - compelling for novice and experienced researchers alike. McLeod skilfully guides you through the process of planning, designing and developing your research study, through to dissemination of your knowledge findings. The insights offered inspire confidence even in the most apprehensive researcher. This is a classic, oozing with practical advice, underpinned by 9 key guiding principles. Updated and rewritten to include an invaluable companion website - a must for every student and lecturer.

-- Dr. Marcella Finnerty

It is with pleasure I offer my endorsement to this latest offering from John McLeod, whether as a companion to his earlier An Introduction to Research in Counselling and Psychotherapy (2013), or as a stand-alone resource, this book offers counselling and psychotherapy students, practitioners and academics practical help not only in formulating a research project but also in orientating themselves to the becoming of a researcher. Another invaluable contribution to the field from McLeod.

-- Dr Kathleen Gregory
