`For those of you who wonder if the counselling approach is of much use for career guidance, this book should be informative. The importance of working with insight into client feelings is exemplified by insights into the need to address and work through feelings so that blocks to career interest and good decision-making can be overcome... The book outlines basic counselling skills and more complex ones and many straightforward exercises; ways of generating career options; career drivers and satisfiers; decision-making exercises; and guidelines for investigating careers... This text has made me more aware of the importance of thinking in terms of counselling and group counselling in the work I do relating to careers' - Guidance Matters

Career counselling is often misunderstood as being how to advise people which career is best for them. This book explains what career counselling actually is, why people seek it and what career counsellors can do to help their clients. Firmly rooted in humanistic counselling, this guide takes a `whole person' approach whilst maintaining a career focus.

Concentrating on the process, skills and techniques of career counselling with adults, the authors examine the problems which are typically brought to counsellors and how these are often entangled with issues outside work. Illustrated throughout by examples of techniques with a wide range of clients, topics discussed include screening and contracting, development of self-understanding, facilitating decision-making, self-management and professional progression.
