`An excellent compilation..... Given the explosion in the demand for both counselling and supervision, this book should be required reading for all those putting a toe in these complex waters. However, I think it is also a salutary guide for those already practising as trainers and supervisors. I found the issues raised stimulated me to think again about my own practice and to profit from that exercise' - Counselling, The Journal of The British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

This accessible book explores the issues involved in both the training and supervision of counsellors and in the preparation of those who are to undertake supervisory and training roles. The number of training courses is growing and counsellors must undergo supervision if they are to be accredited by professional bodies. In this volume, leading trainers and supervisors from different counselling traditions discuss the responsibilities and the professional and practical issues involved, and a trainee and supervisee give an insider's view of what it feels like to be in these positions. The closing chapter deals with the important issue of training for counsellor trainers and supervisors.
