'Initially sceptical about yet another therapy 'approach' or 'model', this book quickly won me over with its copious wisdom rooted in a mature engagement with intersubjectivity, and with leading-edge pluralistic postmodern and contemplative perspectives. It is a major, integrating contribution to developing an alive, 'new paradigm' approach to therapy that transcends schoolist parochialism, and challenges the worst excesses of overly 'modernist' therapeutic ideologies and practices' -
