What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher
‘Anyone who needs to be convinced of the relevance and contribution of counselling psychology to modern therapeutic practice and to its vibrancy, creativity and penetration into contemporary contexts should look no further than this excellent book. It breaks new ground by challenging the reader – both trainees and experienced practitioners alike – to critically reflect on the diverse practice and meanings of modern counselling psychology and psychotherapy. Martin Milton and his colleagues are to be congratulated on this groundbreaking book.’—Professor Robert Bor, Lead Consultant Psychologist, Royal Free Hospital London and Director, Dynamic Change Consultants Ltd

‘Staff and alumni from Surrey University have written about aspects of counselling psychology ranging from spirituality, sexuality, the arts and creative media, and the environment. Contemporary challenges regarding research into human individual experiences are also explored. Chapters are characterised by their depth of writing in the discipline of counselling psychology, which is in contrast to current unitheoretical and sometimes manualised ways of working with human distress.’—Pamela E. James, Professor of Counselling Psychology, Liverpool John Moores University, UK
