About the Author
Drawing on their numerous years experience as counsellors, tutors, and writers, Jan Sutton and William Stewart introduce readers to the basic principles that underpin counselling practice; provide insight into various counseling approaches; clarify the nature of counseling and the role of the counsellor, and assist readers to develop a repertoire of key counselling skills and qualities, such as active listening, genuineness, unconditional positive regard, empathy, goal-setting, etc. They also address the important issues of ongoing supervision to enhance counselling practice, and counsellor self-care to reduce the risk of burnout. Jan Sutton is also author of Healing the Hurt Within and William Stewart is author of An A-Z of Counselling Theory and Practice.
