particular way of practising - maybe heavily influenced by seeing Carl Rogers on film. Although it is tempting to think that all person-centred therapists practice in this way, in reality there is a great deal of variation. In this unique book, Suzanne Keys has compiled accounts of therapists' idiosyncratic practice of Person-Centred Therapy to give lie to the myth that all are nodding Rogers' clones. Person-centred therapists and clients reveal the details of their relationships, presenting a snapshot of current person-centred practice in all its diversity and singularity. Deeply personal yet universal in its relevance to anyone interested in human relating.
