This is a great source of information for students. A wide variety of established authorities have contributed meaningful chapters.

Ms cathy lasher

This is an excellent text which my students will benefit from immensely. It covers a wide range of relevant theories and topics and the writing is both thought provoking and accessible at the same time. The additions in this fourth addition are very welcome.

Ms Sally Riggall

An extremely detailed and authoritative text which takes a contemporary perspective on issues within counselling and psychotherapy, with good use of case studies throughout to illustrate the practical application of theory.

Mrs Suzi Smale
Psychology, Petroc College

This is an excellent primer for counselling students and those from a wider range of professions who wish to develop their knowledge around different therapeutic traditions. highly recommended.

Mr Peter Beven

A very detailed text which is well laid out. Good case examples and coverage of relevant research.

Mr Geoffrey Atkinson

Very impressive book. A large and comprehensive review of the field, Informative and clearly written.

Phil Joyce
Metanoia Institute, Centre for Practice Based Research, Middlesex University
September 10, 2017

This enormous tome does capture a cross-sectional view of the counselling and psychotherapy professionals today. The chapter authors are thoughtfully chosen, and there is a reliable rigour about the information presented.
However, the amount of chapters necessitate that each one is very succinct, almost to the point of unhelpfulness. For example, six pages on clinical supervision in a book this size is not sufficiently nuanced, and does not do justice to the subject's importance. I would have liked to see more depth.
Nevertheless, for an overview of the entire landscape of therapy, and a place to look for further reading, this is a useful reference resource.

Ms Nicola Blunden
Counselling, University of South Wales (Newport)

The Sage Handbook of Counselling and Psychotherapy is a valuable resource for students on my Undergraduate Programme. This is one of the books that I recommend to them as a 'go to text' throughout their three years of study.
This fourth edition is a comprehensive guide and not only is it informative but also stimulating for students starting their journey in therapeutic practice.

Dr Bill Naylor
Health and Social Care at Derby, Derby University

This book is a fantastic resources for anyone interested or working in the therapeutic field. As well as a reference guide this is also a pleasure to read through and explore even for the experienced practitioner with up to date research and establish methodology.
