Editorial Reviews

Booknews
A collection of 10 personal accounts by individual therapists from different theoretical backgrounds, who each write on title subject. One one point they agree: it is not a therapist's training or background that is important but who he is. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR booknews.com
From the Publisher
'In this unique volume seasoned psychotherapists provided candid insights into their own experiences of personal and professional development, giving first hand evidence of the challenges involved in therapeutic self-reflection. Well worth revisiting several decades on.' - Professor Emmy van Deurzen, Principal NSPC.

'On Becoming a Psychotherapist still puts flesh on the bones of the truths of psychotherapy and counselling: that we are all Wounded Healers. That it is the person who heals and not the method or technique. That becoming a therapist is a journey as much as a decision. That knowledge easily degenerates into dogmatism. It is quite startling to realise that there are still not many books that show the honesty and transparency that these contributors bring to their chapters.' - Andrew Samuels, Professor of Analytical Psychology, University of Essex
