`I have been a practitioner for more than twenty years, and I have developed the manual for therapists who, like me, are working with clients face-to-face on a daily basis. I wish I had found a book like this years ago. With all due respect to theory, sometimes a therapist needs a concrete way in which to use it. I have collected these tools over the years through trial and error: they work for me' - From The Introduction

The Therapist's Toolbox is a practical manual of easy-to-apply, sure-fire therapy techniques for the busy therapist or counsellor. It answers the need many therapists have when they are `stuck' for a new (to them) technique to introduce a certain psychological construct in a therapy session. Aimed at practice with adult clients, this book grows out of the author's own frustrations and experiences of attending continuing education seminars and buying professional books and to find only a few practical, useful techniques that can be used immediately with clients.

Written in a friendly, jargon-free style, the author shares a collection of easy-to-implement techniques and ideas to use with clients. She also illustrates each 'tool' with at least one case drawn from her own practice. The book features ideas for use with both adult individuals and couples. -from the publisher
