Learning and Being in Person-Centred Counselling
About this deal
Come down the travelators, exit Sainsbury's, turn right and follow the pedestrianised walkway to Crown Walk and turn right - and Coles will be right in front of you. This is a rigorous, faithful and trustworthy book for those wanting to learn more about a person-centred way of being. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Merry grounds person-centred counselling in its ontological foundations and shows how theory informs our practice and how the counsellor’s attitudes are essential to their practice. It covers the basic issues, but does so in more depth, and with a greater appreciation for the ranges of alternative opinions, than do some of the other introductory books I've read.
It offers in-depth discussion of all aspects of person-centred counselling from its origins to current developments in theory and practice. The late Tony Merry wrote in plain English, so it's an easier way to get one's head around the theory, rather than getting caught-up in scientific psychobabble.Read more about the condition New: A new, unread, unused book in perfect condition with no missing or damaged pages. Tony Merry’s book is both a comprehensive introduction to the practice of person-centred counselling and a useful start point for understanding the development of the approach.
Students who want to understand how to practise person-centred counselling will find useful suggestions and insight into how to accompany a client on their individual journey. I also valued the inclusion of the nineteen propositions in the Merry book, and the translations into more approachable language will, I think, be welcomed by trainees .
In the second edition of this hugely popular book, Tony Merry has reorganised and updated the text to include the latest initiatives in the world of counselling and psychotherapy.
