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. Written in a clear, concise and jargon-free style, and with its wealth of case studies, examples of skills in practice, and practical exercises, this new edition is an ideal text for those embarking on a counselling or psychotherapy course, trainee counsellors, counselling tutors to use in training, professionals working in the area of health care, management and education, and counsellors working in the voluntary sector. It provides insight into various counselling approaches; clarifies the nature of counselling and the role of the counsellor, and assists readers to develop a repertoire of key counselling skills and qualities, such as active listening, genuineness, unconditional positive regard, empathy, goal-setting, etc. The book also addresses the important issues of ongoing supervision to enhance counselling practice, and counsellor self-care to reduce the risk of burnout.

Review:

A counsellor's pocketbook and a useful companion to students on courses up to counselling skills certificate level. - Counselling and Psychotherapy Journal

From the Author:

First published in 1997, the third edition of this best-selling and user-friendly book has been thoroughly revised, updated and expanded. It provides a comprehensive introduction to the captivating topics of counselling and psychotherapy. Furthermore, as pointed out by Dr Philip Rees in the foreword to this new edition:

"The third edition of this excellent, easy-to-read Learning to Counsel book enables the reader to understand and develop a bank of skills necessary to work within a counselling context, or one where counselling skills are practised. The authors bring to this work a wealth of experience as both counselling practitioners and trainers, and this revised edition is vibrant with their insights into the fundamentals that underpin the foundation of all counselling practice.

Building on the success of the first two editions of Learning to Counsel, this edition helps the reader differentiate between the role of a counsellor and the use of counselling skills; it provides a sound introduction to the basic approaches of counselling and defines the rudiments of counselling skills and qualities. It is qualitatively enhanced by the use of illustrative graphics and case studies. Whether or not the authors envisaged further editions when they wrote the first one, both Jan Sutton and William Stewart are to be congratulated on the quality of this revised third edition."

Succinctly written in a jargon-free style, abundant with practical examples, case studies, activities, informative illustrations, and quotations, and with prominence given to sound practice, and personal and professional development, this revised and up-to-date edition is perfect for those considering a career in counselling, trainee counsellors, counselling tutors to use in training, professionals working in the area of health care, management, and education, and counsellors working in the voluntary sector.

Jan Sutton and William Stewart
