More about the Book
Counselling and Psychotherapy can be a meandering experience for the therapist and client. Each offers to the other an experience that can be mystifying, empowering, and healing. The process can sometimes be experienced as a labyrinth as therapists facilitate clients in the healing journey, offering insights into the deeper recesses of the internal world of the clients.
As therapists, we have much to learn from clients’ experiences and in documenting our learning process, we have discovered that counselling and psychotherapy can be a challenging and energy-generating encounter. We believe such learning can be articulated and shared.
The authors use their clinical experiences with examples of therapy sessions for illustrating the kind of work they do with clients to offer readers with a practice-oriented perspective to learning counselling and psychotherapy.
