What People Are Saying

From the Publisher
Learning is a pivotal theory of the book. Mentoring and coaching can be viewed as a collaborative project for both parts. The narrative approach to mentoring and coaching unfolded by Law can be seen as one of the foundations to create this dialogical space.
Professor Reinhard Stelter, PhD, University of Copenhagen

In a significant and necessary way, The Psychology of Coaching, Mentoring, and Learning adds to the process of professionalising coaching.   It brings together a considerable body of psychological theory and research in the area of adult development.   This is an excellent reference book for anyone who facilitates the development of others.
Hugh O’Donovan, Programme Director, Masters in Coaching Psychology, School of Applied Psychology, University College, Cork.

I have known Ho for over a decade as co-founders with fourteen peers of Coaching Psychology in the UK. His work is, as ever, a pleasure to read. It is evidence-based and arises out of a deep and ongoing desire to integrate the head and heart in the continuously evolving fields of coaching, mentoring and learning.
Margaret A. Chapman, Chartered & Registered Psychologist, Coach, Mentor, Researcher & Author

Ho Law's book is an invaluable contribution to our emerging profession – relevant, robust, and timely. Equally, this book is easily assessable, as it is written in a clear and concise way, blending in the latest in evidence-based practise, alongside the practical application of coaching, mentoring, and learning…Every page is full of rich insight, which will make you think about your practice, today.
