Product description

Review

‘This fourth edition has all the strengths of the previous editions but includes a new chapter on recent developments in person-centred theory and practice, as well as a chapter on developments in research by John McLeod. The chapter on research, which comes at the end of the book, is an excellent explanation of why person-centred practitioners must both be informed by and engage with research, which will totally convince the doubters (like me).

The book remains an invaluable introduction to person-centred concepts and can be used as both a reference and a reminder for those already familiar with the approach, to inform practice, enrich supervision or as a study aid for students.

It is a resounding riposte to those who continue to refuse to acknowledge the clinical relevance and proven efficacy of this approach.’

Val Simanowitz, Person-Centred BACP Accredited Counsellor and Supervisor
Therapy Today



′This book has influenced a generation of counsellors and the new edition continues to offer insight and wisdom′ -
Janet Tolan, Psychotherapist and author of Skills in Person-Centred Counselling and Psychotherapy

′This fourth edition has been a very worthwhile endeavour. If this is to be Mearns and Thorne′s last work of this type then it will be a lasting legacy for all counsellors and psychotherapists for some time to come and not just person-centred practitioners,. The updates are seamless and form a coherent state of the art presentation of person-centred theory and practice. Both novice and experienced therapists will find much to gain from reading this book, even if they have read previous editions. The addition of John McCleod′s chapter strengthens this edition even further. Research on Person Centred Counselling is a comprehensive and in-depth introduction to the reasons for research, approaches to research and research on person-centred counselling itself. A highly commendable book′ -

Sheila Haugh, Senior Lecturer MSc Person Centred Contemporary Psychotherapy and Applications, Metanoia, London

′Person-Centred Counselling in Action continues to inform and inspire my doctoral students and lead them to a deeper, much more nuanced understanding of the Person-Centred approach. Moreover, the book has been invaluable in instilling many of the core principles that enable them to become skilled practitioners, mindful of what the therapeutic relationship really means′ -
Dr. Susan Maise Strauss, Senior University Teacher in Counselling Psychology, City University London

From the Back Cover

This bestselling book maintains the accessibility and verve of previous editions while incorporating new developments in the person-centred approach. John McLeod joins authors Dave Mearns and Brian Thorne to contribute an exciting new chapter on research relevant to the person-centred field.

3.0 out of 5 stars Physically difficult to read
By Linda M on 29 September 2019
Bought this book as per tutor's advice for the counselling course. Good source of theory, though some is outdated.
My biggest gripe, however, is the layout of the text. Font is too small and there are far too many characters per line which makes reading a strenuous process for the eyes and brain. There are some "golden" rules when it comes to formatting the text and those were disregarded completely.
I can't wait to be done with this book, I'm getting tension headaches reading it.

By Kindle Customer on 22 January 2020
I receive my book which will happy with my counselling degree. When I opened my package I notice my book has been damaged. normally I receive my book in recycle cardboard package which supports the shape of the books. I'm not happy that the right side of the book has been damaged and a line across the book. I'm very angry about this.
