`Anthony Crouch examines the internal and subjective reality of being a counsellor. Using a series of vignettes, rather than case studies, Crouch builds in all participant perspectives, counsellor, client and supervisor... [the book] proves to be eminently readable, like a good novel. And like a good novel, as opposed to merely a "good read", it takes the reader into the world of its characters so that we might understand them. From the outset, Crouch asserts that the effective counsellor is one who can enter the intimate subjectivity of the client and use that reality as a catalyst for change and growth. By the same token the counsellor should grow through that interaction. The book also contains a series of challenging personal developmen

If you are thinking of becoming a counsellor, you may be wondering if you could put to good use your own life experience by offering support and understanding to those trying to cope with difficulties that you may have encountered and worked through yourself.The ancient Greek aphorism "know thyself" is immensely important in this regard. For unless counsellors are in harmony with themselves they cannot truly relate to the needs of those they seek to help. It is not enough for the counsellor to play the role of the therapist. He or she has to be the therapist - a very different concept.This book explores the journeys of self-discovery that prompted the pioneering practitioners to direct their skills in particular ways and the influence exerted by their backgrounds, ambitions, and personal histories. The overall objective is to help intending therapists to arrive at an understanding of the inner resources they will need to embark on a counselling career, and to help them determine which approach might best accord with their temperament and lifetime's experience. The strategies these practitioners devised are investigated, and case studies used to demonstrate how the different modalities are applied, and how clients may benefit from them.

This book is an anthology of narratives about the experience of counsellor education. Writing shortly after completing their training, the contributors describe the challenges and surprises of training, changes they underwent and their achievements. Collectively, the narratives illustrate the richness and diversity of training, and provide a picture of contemporary counsellor education, through the eyes, hearts and minds of trainees. Written with candour and insight, the narratives confirm that counsellor training often has significant personal and professional consequences in a person's life. The book will be a valuable resource for trainees, to help set their own experience within a wider context, and as a guide on how to survive as a trainee. It will also be of interest to would-be trainees, as preparatory reading, and to trainers as clear evidence of the potential for profound learning and personal change through the process of training. In the Preface, Professor John McLeod extols the value of narratives in order to understand counsellor education as an individual, social or cultural phenomenon, and as a basis for sound professional advice.

Drawing on post-structural theory, Baker illustrates the discourses, power relations and emotional demands that shape camp counsellor employment experiences and well-being.
