What People Are Saying

From the Publisher
Ho has written a thoughtful book integrating and drawing from his previous work in learning theory and narrative approaches. The result is a highly practical text that encourages practitioners to really think about what they are doing and build their own, robust framework of practice from an existential, enquiry based perspective.
Dr Alison Whybrow, Coach and Business Psychologist, London

This insightful book provides a unified approach to coaching, coaching psychology and mentoring practice. An excellent overview to the field.
Professor Stephen Palmer, Centre for Coaching, London
