Read this as a textbook for introduction to counselling.

This book offers an interesting mix of case stories and different psychologists' approaches to their "finest hour" of counselling. More as an evocation than analysis, there is plenty of narration but little conclusions. It is an interesting read, but not a practical how-to guide.

*Makes for some fine reading hours *
Interesting therapeutic stories presented in the same tradition, and by the same authors, as The Mummy at the Dining Room Table. Again, and perhaps unbeknownst to the individual therapists, the theory and technique do not even begin to compete with the healing relationship between therapist and client which is the true source of these "finest" outcomes.
