This book provides a comprehensive, accessible and research-informed approach to personal development issues associated with the role of a counsellor, therapist or mental health practitioner. Written by leading authors in the field, the book is designed to help both trainees and experienced therapists to be more effective in their work with clients by:

*Deepening and consolidating their understanding of all aspects of personal and professional development

*Making use of their personal strengths, resources and life experience

*Drawing on colleagues, mentors and the wider professional community as sources of learning, support and inspiration.

The first part of the book explains the nature of the personal and professional development issues that are experienced by therapists. The second part provides a set of learning tasks that invite reflection on all aspects of therapist development. John and Julia McLeod have written a superb text that not only presents a strong and coherent case for the importance of personal development for therapists, but also provides a range of activities to stimulate the reader's own reflective development process.
