The theory behind Co-Counselling argues that emotional expression should be welcomed and that human beings can help each other recover from past distress by taking turns giving and receiving attention. Benefits of the method include the acceleration of personal growth and the reduction of the stresses inherent in the practitioner's role.

This accessible book offers a serious challenge to much of what is currently considered good practice in mental health services, and succeeds in developing a dialogue between co-counselling and other therapeutic approaches. It provides a thorough introduction to the method, incorporating recent developments in the field and providing a comprehensive account of both the theory and practice. The reader also benefits from inclusion of clinical material outlining the experiences of people from a range of backgrounds offering evidence of the value of Co-Counselling.

Co-Counsellingoffers a model that has many implications for anyone struggling with emotional problems, particularly those recovering from discrimination, prejudice and oppression. Counsellors and psychotherapists will find this book to be an invaluable resource which both challenges and stimulates.
