Online reviewers say:
I bought this book largely from reading all the good reports on Amazon. I must say, I wasn't disappointed. Although I am already well into a counselling degree course, I have found a great deal to learn from this book which is well written, extremely 'reader friendly' and contains something for everyone I'm sure - whatever their stage of learning or practice. In my opinion, despite the title, this book would be of interest well beyond the introductory stage. Amazon reviewer.
This is clearly a must read and a wonderful informed handbook for assignments for anyone starting their 10 week introduction course on the counselling path. Pete Sanders leaves nothing out. It really is a Must for anyone starting on their counselling training. An excellent investment. Amazon reviewer.
Brilliant - this was the bible and told you everything, easy to read and helpful when studying, highly recommend. Amazon reviewer.
Perfect, simple easy to follow - the perfect companion for newbies. Amazon reviewer.
