      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      A very useful book for people studying counselling, especially for the Person-Centred approach.

      This book is intended for people studying fora Certificate in Counselling and intermediate counselling skills courses. I found it very useful when studying for my Diploma in Counselling and Psychotherapy.

      Next Steps in Counselling is very easy to read and user friendly, as everything is laid out in bitesize chunks with bullet points throughout, a summary at the end of each chapter to check your understanding, and many activities to help you develop as a counsellor.

      The book appears to be most useful when thinking of counselling from a person-centred prospective (well, it was for me in my studies). There is a chapter on counselling theories to help you explore the various approaches to counselling. Several case studies are presented and followed throughout, and activities invite you to explore and question your feelings in the role of counsellor and from the client's prospective.

      There are many details on developing yourself and your counselling skills, and even suggestions on creating the right environment for counselling. Ethics and advice for dealing with especially difficult suitations are included, but the whole lot is really easy to digest due to the informal text of the authors.

      A very useful book for developing counsellors.
