What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

'..a wonderfully fresh take on some of the old nuggets of PC theory as well as developing the approach into newer areas. The authors are to be very warmly congratulated for this major new contribution to both British and international writing on and from within the PCA.' - Ian Carty, Department of Social, Community& Health Studies, University of Hertfordshire

'There is a lot of material being published on the person-centred approach, and it is heartening to discover in this title a focus on the application of the person-centred approach to a variety of settings and relationships.' - Richard Bryant-Jefferies, Healthcare Counselling and Psychotherapy Journal

'This is an impressive and very wide ranging introduction to the Person Centred Approach. It not only introduces the approach but adds new dimensions to the theory and new extensions of it into practice, reaching well beyond the counselling room walls.' -
