  • Counselling demands courage of both the counsellor and the client. The client is asked to share her secrets and her dreams, to explore her relationships and her reactions, to embark on change , of self, of attitude, of response.

    The counsellor is challenged to sit with chaos and pain, to accept uncertainty and to create safety and acceptance for this stranger. Without a safety net, without a map, she faces the unknown.

    This book looks at both sides of the counselling process, at the unfolding work of the client, and at the efforts of the counsellor to prepare herself to respond effectively. Where their two worlds meet, the counselling relationship begins, and the outcome depends on the quality of this relationship.

    Aimed at those who are already counselling, or who are hoping to become counsellors, it will also be useful for anyone who is considering becoming a client. It describes some of the aims of counselling, as well as different ways of facilitating the relationship. Also included are client profiles, with an outline of their progress at different stages in the work.

    This book tries to simplify and to clarify the complex and the mysterious, and to make counselling practice accessible to all.
