Effective counselling is based on a strong working relationship between counsellor and client. Building and maintaining this therapeutic alliance, demands both skill and an ability to negotiate challenges which arise during the counselling process. "Key Issues for Counselling in Action" prepares new practitioners for face-to-face work with clients by looking at what is required at each stage of the process and examining issues which practitioners most frequently need to deal with along the way. The topics covered are relevant to all counsellors, regardless of theoretical orientation. The book explores the everyday issues counsellors face when: getting started; making an assessment; working at relational depth; setting goals; and ending the relationship. Advice is also given on more difficult challenges, such as dealing with: reluctant clients; stuckness; client dependency; and unplanned endings. "Key Issues for Counselling in Action" is a bestselling text which has been used to train many thousands of counsellors as well as supporting their continuing professional development. This second edition has been completely re-written and includes new material on the use of touch, self-care, culture and counselling evaluation.
