Reading this book was the journey I needed. Peggy Natiello informs, illuminates and inspires with this thoughtful and clear account of what 'a way of being' really means. In an age when therapists frequently feel the pressure to add yet another technique to their tool bag, this book is fresh air and reminds us that it is the relationship and quality of being which heals and that this is unique to each encounter. For anyone seeking to understand the person-centred approach, this book will give a real insight into the rigour, discipline, courage and depth required. For those already committed, this timely book with its many examples deepens our understanding of the radical, political, yet deeply personal nature of this way of being. Not since reading my first Carl Rogers book, have I been so moved, empowered and affirmed. Jenny Biancardi

Peggy Natiello's original voice strikes the same chords of excitement, empowerment and integrity stirred in me when sitting with her and Carl Rogers in their training program some twenty years ago. On reading this book I felt intellectually aroused, supported in deep reflection on my practice and passionate about doing this work. This level of introductory clarity and theoretical intricacy is hard to find. It is a gift. Carol Wolter-Gustafson
