A Practical Guide to Counselling provides you with a hands-on understanding of how counseling works and how it can help people.

Alastair Ross offers an invaluable guide to anyone interested in learning more about how counseling works - with expert advice on everything from the ethics of counseling to how to listen attentively and establish a relationship.

You'll view things from both a client's and a trainee counselor's point of view, and will gain both a theoretical and practical grounding in the subject, building the skills to talk and listen to others, as well as determining whether counselling is something you'd like to pursue further.

About the Author:

Dr Alistair Ross initially trained as a Baptist Minister and worked in South London, Kent and Birmingham. He subsequently did an experiential therapeutic training at Claybury Psychiatric Hospital in Essex and worked as a pastoral counselor and pastoral theologian. Further training as a psychodynamic counselor and supervisor followed and since 2002 he has led the MA in Psychodynamic Counseling at the University of Birmingham. He is a BACP accredited counselor and supervisor, Chair of BACP's Professional Ethics and Quality Standards Committee and a lecturer at Oxford University.
