Next Steps in Counselling almost constitutes a counselling training course in its own right - I would recommend this book without hesitation to any practitioner. Sheila Haugh, Leeds Metropolitan University, UK. This complete revision of the best selling first edition is destined to become a core text both for students on professional counselling trainings and for those developing their competence in using counselling skills as part of a related profession - An invaluable companion to training, the book will provide a much needed foundation for students making the often daunting 'next step' from practicing their counselling skills to beginning 'real' face to face counselling practice. Highly recommended. Peter Pearce, Metanoia Institute, UK. I am in my 2nd year of a foundation degree in counselling and I have also started in my work placement and this book is invaluable. It is one of the few books that I want to pick up and read voluntarily!! It has so much relevant information and is very easy to read. On the side of each page is extra information about each subject and there are plenty of case examples. Definitely a book I would recommend. Amazon UK reviewer.
