Reviews and Endorsements

'In a clear and well-argued book, Lynette Harborne demonstrates why therapists and spiritual directors need to be open to each other's disciplines. This informative book raises important issues both for practising therapists and directors and for those in training.'
- Canon Robert Wright, Canon Emeritus of Westminster, formerly Sub-Dean and Archdeacon of Westminster, Rector of St Margaret's, and Chaplain to the Speaker of the House of Commons

'This is clear, well organized, and elegantly written. Whilst not everyone will agree with some of the conclusions, students and practitioners of both disciplines will find much to provoke, inspire, challenge, and usefully engage with.'
- Andrew Walker, Director of the Ignatian Spirituality programme, a Psychosynthesis trained supervisor and counsellor, founder director of the London Centre for Spirituality, and presently priest in charge of St Michael's church in Lewes

'This is, for me, the first significant book on the British scene that addresses the question of where and how spiritual direction and psychotherapy overlap. The result is a powerful statement that addresses both sets of practitioners with remarkable effect and is just the beginning of an important encounter. It is my wish that this book becomes a catalyst to a rich and fruitful conversation that will be seen as the source of considerable movement for all concerned. All of its points need to be taken seriously.'
- John Eatock, FBACP, BACP Lead Advisor for Spiritual & Pastoral Care and Counselling 2007-2011
