This book is a comprehensive, easy-to-read introduction to personal counselling, written for student counsellors and new counsellors, and those who train/supervise them. The book contains many practical examples of the use of counselling micro-skills, includes client statements for use by trainers in teaching particular skills, explores the processes of change, and describes an integrative counselling process which enables counsellors to make informed choices about which skills to use at particular stages of the counselling process. Each chapter has a learning summary and a list of suggested further reading including reference to relevant research. Each of the skills chapters includes demonstration examples of suitable client statements and counsellor responses, followed by practice examples and student assignment examples.
