`Size-wise, these books span an open palm and have a very handy flap on the back and front as an integral feature of the cover which can be used as a bookmark. They are concise, yet thorough, providing introductions to the key elements of the theory and practice underpinning major therapeutic approaches... [An] ideal 'intro'... I would recommend these books because, 'in a nutshell', they work' - Therapy Today

'In a book aimed principally at those just embarking on counselling training Windy Dryden offers a down-to-earth introduction to the theory and practice of counselling which will serve to aid and inspire trainees' - Professor Brian Thorne, Co-founder, The Norwich Centre and Emeritus Professor of Counselling, University of East Anglia

What is counselling and how does it work? Counselling in a Nutshell provides the answers to these questions and more, as part of a step-by-step guide to the counselling relationship and the therapeutic process.

Focusing on the commonalities within the main theoretical approaches - psychodynamic, person-centred and cognitive-behavioural - Windy Dryden describes a framework which underpins all counselling, irrespective of the approach being used. Key features of the framework include:

o bonds between counsellor and client

o goals and tasks of counselling

o stages of the therapeutic process

o core therapeutic conditions.

Counselling in a Nutshell provides a concise introduction to core components of the therapeutic relationship and process and is suitable for counsellors of all orientations.
