A comprehensive introduction to the theory and practice of counselling and psychotherapy. This new edition has been thoroughly updated with new research, examples from practice and case studies. An extended introduction is used to explain the new 4-part structure and help readers to track key themes across each section of the book.

The new edition includes 7 new chapters:

* The interdisciplinary knowledge base for counselling theory and practice

* Gestalt therapy

* Feminist therapy

* Art-making as a therapeutic practice

* Therapy in nature: using the outdoor environment

* Pluralism: an organising framework for counselling practice

* The future of counselling: international perspectives

Each chapter enhances learning with the following pedagogy:

* Topics for further discussion

* Key terms and concepts

* Suggested further reading

* Case studies and illustrations

* Landmark research studies.

Enhanced by new material debates around evidence-based practice, third wave CBT therapies such as ACT and mindfulness, recent developments within psychodynamic theory, motivational interviewing, reality therapy and embedded counseling, this new edition also explores the political context of counselling and provides coverage of key professional issues. An Introduction to Counselling remains the book of choice for students and tutors on introductory counselling courses.
