Person-centred counselling in action
This practical and comprehensive guide is written for counsellor trainers and their trainees, as well as for counsellors already in practice wanting to familiarize themselves with the person-centred approach to counselling.Dave Mearns and Brian Thorne explain the theoretical principles of the person-centred approach by relating these principles to actual practice. Drawing on one particular case-study the two counsellors present an extensive exploration of the core conditions of empathy, acceptance and congruence, and provide a step-by-step account of both the counsellor's and the client's experience of being involved in a trusting, caring relationship characterised by power-sharing and mutuality.
