Person-Centred Counselling in Action Summary
Praise for previous editions: `the first systematic, comprehensive text about this approach since Carl Rogers' own Client-Centred Therapy... outstanding' - Counselling, The Journal of the British Association for Counselling `I felt understood by this book!' - Ann Weiser, PCA Letter Network `The skilful conveying of tenderness and building of trust are well explained and described with lots of case study examples' - Guidance Matters `Without doubt the clearest description of the person-centred approach to counselling that I have read, apart from Carl Rogers' own writings.I felt that I had got to know both Dave Mearns and Brian Thorne through their offering the reader their own congruence and I found this aspect of the book at times quite moving' - Social Work Today `The book conveys the profound respect for the person, for his/her autonomy and uniqueness, which is inherent in the Rogerian approach' - British Journal of Medical Psychology `Gives real insight into person-centred counselling... This is a gentle book; an absolute delight to read (I couldn't put it down) as it held me in the realm of my own feelings. I would like to thank both authors for sharing so much of their intimate selves. I recommend this book to trainee counsellors, trained counsellors, clients and those involved in the helping professions. It is a book that has influenced me and that I would not want to be without' - BPS Counselling Psychology Review `A marvelous book; highly recommended. Someone has finally written an easily accessible book about the theory and practice - mostly practice - of the kind of therapy that makes the most sense to many focusers. Hurrah!' - The Focusing Connection `It is an excellent book and will be of enormous benefit to all those needing to learn how person-centred therapy should really be practised. This book could very sensibly be placed on the reading lists of all counselling trainers and trainees... this is the most informative and useful book I have read in a long time and I have no doubt that if Carl Rogers were still alive today, he would not only agree but also acknowledge experiencing some envy' - Changes `An important book... a most sophisticated text. Mearns and Thorne have written a book for all counsellors and psychotherapists. The reader will be left both grateful and hungry for more' - British Journal of Guidance and Counselling `Stimulates a re-exploration of the doctor-patient relationship' - British Medical Journal `Truly allows the reader to enter the world of the person-centered counsellor' - Contemporary Psychology This practical and comprehensive guide is written for counsellor trainers and their trainees, as well as for counsellors already in practice wanting to familiarize themselves with the person-centred approach to counselling. Dave Mearns and Brian Thorne explain the theoretical principles of the person-centred approach by relating these principles to actual practice. Drawing on one particular case-study the two counsellors present an extensive exploration of the core conditions of empathy, acceptance and congruence, and provide a step-by-step account of both the counsellor's and the client's experience of being involved in a trusting, caring relationship characterised by power-sharing and mutuality.
