'As a counsellor, supervisor and trainer I find this book such an excellent resource. It is invaluable in my teaching as well as supporting learning in supervision. Culley and Bond use their extensive experience as practitioners to demystify potentially complex ideas, instead presenting them in an accessible and engaging way. Counselling skills are described clearly and case study material is relevant to practice. The third edition brings new and contemporary content that further enhances the value of the book.
