Written by established leaders in the field and talented (relative) newcomers, this book is a comprehensive introduction to the wider field of counselling and psychotherapy and as such will be useful to trainees across a range of the psychological professions. The chapters on diversity, research and professional issues are a crucial and welcome addition to the field and should enable practitioners to recognise their wider role in clients’ lives.

This work provides an exemplary introduction to the field of counselling and psychotherapy.  An impressively wide range of theoretical modalities are covered in a svelte manner that recommends this text as both a sound resource for beginner counsellors and psychotherapists as well as a valuable reference for seasoned practitioners.  Of particular recommendation is the manner in which the text aids the reader in understanding how these modalities fit into the broader field.  This is done through effective introductions and examinations of topics such as the therapeutic relationship, relationships among different approaches and through the exploration of contemporary research and practice issues.  It is undoubtedly a text that one will want on their shelves for ready and repeated use.

Incorporating contributions from key figures with in the counselling field, this book provides an excellent introduction to the diversity of counselling approaches that underpin contemporary practice.  It also addresses important issues such as the significance of research, diversity counselling and the maintenance and development of professional and ethical practice. Authoritative but accessible, it is a valuable introductory text for trainee counsellors and prospective clients alike, as well as a useful resource for  practitioners wishing to keep abreast of wider developments within the counselling world.

There is a great need for textbooks that help students and practitioners make sense of all the different approaches to counselling and psychotherapy. The second edition of Stephen Palmers' book helps us do that. The case studies at the end of each chapter help bring it all to life especially as they are written by those who actually apply the various theories day to day.
I also liked the way that differing approaches to CBT were treated separately rather than lumped together as they are in some introductory texts. Other useful additions are the chapters outlining a pluralist approach to the therapeutic relationship and overviews of professional issues, research and diversity issues.

This book makes a solid contribution to the literature on counselling and psychotherapy, underpinned by the rich expertise and extensive professional experience of the many authors. Stephen Palmer has done an excellent job in editing an accessible yet wide-ranging coverage of the field.  This text will appeal not just to beginners but also practitioners and other interested readers. I look forward to recommending it to my students.
