This book is a helpful resource for senior students embarking on the counselling journey. It covers the most fundamental principals, theories and practical aspects of counselling. The inclusion on activities adds value to the students' experience of counselling. The book is very user friendly and progresses in a logical sequence. I would recommend this book to all new counsellors.
A clear and well structured book, that has useful activities for learners who are embarking on counselling training from a basic level and beyond.
Extremely informative and well structured
A useful resource to aid with skill development
Nelson-Jones presents a comprehensive book about counselling skills which enhances student skills practice
Good book for added research to the subject under discussion
Very useful addition to texts used on the course for midwives during genetic counselling in haemoglobinopathies.
This is an informative and comprehensive book, which provides robust links to practice.
Very useful text and will be incprporated into the Psychological therapies awarde.
an easy to access work for level 5 students and is also useful to level 6 students for exam revision
This book encourages students to look at generic counselling and helping skills. The case studies and practical exercises are used in class
This has proved a useful book so far in relation to case studies and activities for student involvement. Some of the concepts take the students to the next level of intereventions and in that respect have generated much discussion in class in relation to how theory is put into practice (or not in some cases).
The book has been on loan to a number of students who have reported back positively.
A very welcome updated edition of a core text.
Excellent book for level 2 and above. Very easy to read and understand. Would definitely recommend this book to my students.
A really good practical text for counselling and mental health students.
A highly readable, well-structured and clear basic introduction to skills, applicable across the board. Great reference text for new trainees which includes everything the neophyte counsellor needs to know about ethical practice and context. An essential text for our year 1 students
Although considering this text for postgraduate students, I believe it to be a worthy companion at undergraduate level also, and shall be adopting it for first degree students also. It is written in accessible English, has clear case study applications of theory to practice and is clearly referenced so that students may locate topics easily. A great introduction!
This is an extremely good introduction to the process of using counselling skills. It provides a range of extremely helpful exercises by which the reader can assimilate and practice the techniques being recommended
