'An authoritative text, providing a first-rate outline of the specific methods that counselling and psychotherapy researchers use, and illustrated through a wealth of examples' - Professor Mick Cooper, Senior Lecturer in Counselling, University of Strathclyde
'The content is comprehensive and covers the full range of knowledge and information that a trainee psychologist/psychotherapy researcher would want to have… It offers a general overview of psychotherapy research methods and their logic which is not duplicated in any book that I know of' - Georgia Lepper, Senior Lecturer in Psychotherapy, University of Kent
Research in Psychotherapy and Counselling is a guide to methods used in studying the outcomes and processes of therapy. Introducing a range of methodologies which are used internationally, the author describes different research designs and illustrates them through examples of actual studies. Presenting the findings from key studies, he clearly demonstrates the usefulness of the research in therapeutic practice.
Research in Psychotherapy and Counselling is ideal for researchers and for students on courses in counselling, psychotherapy, clinical and counselling psychology and psychiatry.

This is an informative and well written book. It looks at outcome research in a clear, concise and readable way for a student or other academic audience.
A good introduction to the subject
clear well-structured, well-organised text. language not always so fluent. recommending as an additional text for research training courses.
An excellent overview text for students unfamiliar with research methods used in counselling and psychotherapy. This book is useful for students in assisting them in overcoming fear created by lack of exposure to research methods and in helping them make appropriate choices for their own research.
This is an excellent book that I am STRONGLY recommending to the doctoral level students on my course.
