Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“As a dominantly clinical practitioner who nonetheless retains an active interest in research, and particularly phenomenological research, I found this book both useful and informative.” (The Indo-Pacific Journal of Phenomenology, 1 May 2013)

“Phenomenology – when it is done well –discloses, transforms and inspires. That is why it excites me, why I am passionate about it . . . Fortunately, this does not need to stand in the way of readers making use of this otherwise excellent book in their own way and for their own practice-relevant research needs.” (Counselling Psychology Review, 2 June 2012)

"The many current research examples provide a useful and easy-to-read description of what is possible in phenomenological research. This book is a wonderful addition to qualitative methodology texts and I would recommend it as a standard text for anyone considering counselling/ psychotherapy research." (Therapy Today, 1 December 2011)
