    Brilliant book that gives an overview of multiple theories. See Michael Khan for more in depth analyses per modality.

    Here in less than 24 hours with Amazon Prime. A really good book made up of 9 units (chapters) and a glossary which is easy to understand. It has case studies and exercises to get the message across. An interesting read.

    Counselling Skills and Theory 4th Edition is the required reading for my counselling module at university and I have found it to be a very good book overall. It isn't very detailed or in-depth, but it gives you a good grounding and basic understanding enabling you to go away and do independent learning from other resources. It definitely has enough information in there for me to be able to understand the theories and practical issues.I like how the book follows a similar structure for the chapters which helps you follow it through easier. There are not a lot of diagrams (which isn’t good if you are more of a visual learner) but the ones that are in there are enough to help explain the concepts. The glossary at the end has come in handy on many occasions and is an easy to understand. The key terms throughout the textbook are also helpful as it will have the definition in a sentence/paragraph as well as defining the concept. This makes understanding the terms easier.The book also has various group tasks listed throughout the book, we do them during classes for our course. It’s a good way to think about counselling in a more practical way and use what you learn in the book. There are individual activities in the book as well, however I haven’t done any of them.Overall, I think the book is a good aid for my module and has been useful for my learning.

    Currently studying Level 5 Diploma using Integrative Approach. This is SUCH a helpful book. Gives a great over view of the different approaches and breaks them down into bite size pieces. Would recommend to anyone doing Level 2 or 3 also, it's a good all rounder.
