Editorial Reviews


Praise for the First Edition:

`Only occasionally these days do books appear that are really needed in the area of counselling/counselling psychology. This is just such a text.... The editors are well chosen.... They know better than most the important issues, the changes that have taken place and the current position within the field. Between them, they have knowledge of most people working in the area, hence an excellent range of contributors.... This book gives an excellent description of the present state of counselling psychology... [it] is a must for all students of the subject and those working within the profession, as it is the only publication which brings together such a wealth of information pertinent to this fast changing field.... Already I have found this an invaluable text which I refer to again and again' - Psychology Teaching Review

`This book, without question, must be read by students, practitioners, alike. It is readable, insightful, authoritative, it accurately reflects the development and current status of the profession and is a much-welcomed resource' - Counselling Psychology Review

`A thorough, well researched and up-to-date source book.... The 28 chapters are well integrated and work well within a clear structure. They are of a consistently high quality and consistently well written... impressive' - British Psychological Society Division of Educational and Child Psychology Newsletter

`A landmark publication in the development of counselling psychology. It demonstrates an approach to counselling that is securely grounded in psychological theory and research, but which encompasses a broad range of practical applications and approaches' - Dr Fraser Watts, University of Cambridge

`A major contribution to the literature. This is an authoritative text and the first such comprehensive survey of the field by British authors.... The Handbook will have a national and international impact. It will be a constant source of reference for practitioners and academics well into the next millennium' - John Allen, City University

`A big, thoughtful, energetic, informative book. It lays out the groundwork for the new profession and discipline of counselling psychology as this is being developed in the UK, and gives a clear account of the main parameters of counselling psychology as it is presently understood. There are many excellent chapters and contributions from many of those who have been most influential in shaping and developing this new arena for psychological work' - Dr J Miller M Mair, Crichton Royal Hospital, Dumfries and Galloway

`The authors successfully integrate psychological knowledge of life-span development, counselling practice, the helping relationship, the enhancement of psychological well-being and the insights of scientist practitioners in order to clarify the distinctive contribution which counselling psychologists have to offer to the field of counselling and psychotherapy. It is an essential resource for practitioners' - Helen Cowie, Roehampton Institute University of Surrey
