The book takes the reader through the counselling process, providing advice on how to structure and manage therapeutic work in ways which are thoroughly grounded in person-centred principles. The book describes all aspects of the therapeutic relationship - from the initial meeting and assessment, right through to ending the relationship well - and demonstrates how the skills and attitudes of the person-centred practitioner are used effectively in a range of counsellor-client interactions. Psychological contact, congruence, empathy and unconditional positive regard - central tenets of the approach - are defined, not only as the basis of counselling, but also of the practitioners wider role within their organization or agency. Skills in Person-Centred Counselling & Psychotherapy is an ideal introduction for beginning practitioners and for more experienced therapists who want to extend their range. The subtleties of the person-centred approach are fully explored and examples and exercises are used to aid understanding of theory and the development of skills.
