This is a good practical book for all conselling students and anyone in a helping role wanting to improve their listening skills. Well structured, this book is also clearly written and full of useful examples and exercises that guide the reader on the effective application of counselling skills.
A really informative and accessible text for students commencing on a counselling skills training.
This book contains useful examples and exercises that will be beneficial for learners on an introductory counselling training course
Excellent, essential reading for both students and lecturers on any counselling and psychotherapy course. Excellent case histories illustrating the use of each skill along with a comprehensive definition of the skills.
We have found the book to be easily understandable for our first year students, but still useful for our honors level classes. Faculty members have also found it to be beneficial in the conceptualization of new modules and in the updating of old ones.
Ideal for the more advanced learners in my class.

I like this authors systematic style of presenting counselling technique. Students find it easy to understand and follow in terms of developingcounselling and communication skills wtih their clients. I have included on core reading lists and recommended to the library.
This is a really good book to find out all about counselling. The chapters follow a logical progression and the topics are introduced in an accessible way. I liked the activities and examples and comprehensive glossary. The annotated bibliography and reference list are extremely useful for choosing further reading. The only downside is that the chapter outcomes and headers are in a very pale text.
An essential text for any trainer or trainee in counselling skills. An excellent all-rounder for practictioners to learn and build on their counselling skills. This is a book that every counsellor should have on their shelf.
One of the best skills texts on the market, giving good practical grounding for trainees and more specialist information for practitioners. It appeals across academic levels, setting beginners on the path but also tackling ongoing development. Recommended to undergrad and postgrad alike!
An excellent text, it provides up-to-date reading for students partaking in counselling courses. The text is not only easy to read and understand but it also offers realistic actives that enable the student to develop their skills. It’s a must have book for all trainee counsellors.
