This powerful book identifies what counsellors and psychotherapists need in order to survive and thrive in what is undoubtedly an exciting and rewarding role - but one which can at the same time be personally and professionally demanding and emotionally draining. Leading counsellors and psychotherapists discuss the emotional, physical, social and professional needs of people who work, or would like to work, in a therapeutic setting, and examine how those needs can be best fulfilled within the rapidly changing context of counselling and psychotherapy today. Drawing on their own experience, views, research and clinical practice, contributors cover topics such as the politics and issues of training, self-development, evaluation, social responsibility and competence. Supportive, encouraging and practical, but with a strong theoretical base, this is an indispensable book for all those who are training to be or who are already practising therapists.
