Effective Counseling Skills Reviews:
"Wow! At first glance I thought to myself here goes another one of those books that just keeps repeating itself. But no! By the time I reached "The Counseling Session," I began to look for my credit card. This is the best Effective Counseling Skills Text Book I have ever seen. And in just a few days I will have one as well. Thanks for the heads-up, and if anyone out in cycberland hasn't purchased this book, you are missing out."

"Loving every page as I devour every word. I'm sure you've heard this many times. Your insight is profound,challenging and stirring. By the time I had reached page 40, I had two huge realizations of my own regarding family of origin issues. I welcomed the tears of healing."

"When first reading the text I was nervous about remembering everything that I was reading. The more I read the more it made sense and linked all together. I liked how it took you step by step into the situations that you may encounter. It was quite incredible how I would pause to ask a question, to have it answered only a few sentences later."

The text was written in a very practical way and the essential skills and interventions were well written and laid out in a way that was not too complex to grasp."
