A theory of therapy: guidelines for counseling practice
This is the first book to focus on counsellor beliefs and their implications for effective practice. The author details the most important beliefs that make up personal belief systems, including personal meaning, self-actualization and growth, and reveals how these beliefs affect the counselling process and the professional education of counsellors. The volume draws heavily upon modern humanistic-experiential psychology and on the author's long years of practice as a person-centred counsellor and psychotherapist.
