The Making of a Counsellor Summary

The Making of a Counsellor by Ms Ellen Noonan

In The Making of a Counsellor case studies illustrate work done with `impossible' clients; other essays about orphans and debtors, accountancy trainees and expatriate employees explore new ways of thinking about these groups of people. More traditional, perhaps, are essays about work with neurological patients, adolescent youth club members, traumatised families, and the chronically mentally ill. Each essay breaks fresh ground in understanding the complexity of the problems and the richness of the counselling relationship.
In vivid narrative, The Making of a Counsellor. conveys the experience of thinking and working as a counsellor. The original and thoughtful essays make this an invaluable source of ideas and techniques.

The Making of a Counsellor Reviews

`... very useful to trainee counsellors ... range of subjects ... lucidity of the writing...' - British Journal of Psychotherapy

`... one of those rare books which manage both to inform and inspire the reader. ... Psychodynamic theory is not particulary fashionable in social work education at the moment, but nevertheless I would urge anyone who has doubts about its usefulness to read this book...' - Issues in Social Work Education

`This book is generally well produced...the essays are easy to read with good introductions, discussions and would be a good buy for the individual who is undertaking more advanced study with a view to developing his or her practice of couselling.' - Deborah Banks, Nursing Times.

`...well worth reading and should be added to the nurse tutor's library...' - Journal of Advanced Nursing
