Shelves: psychology
Not an easy book to follow , it's mostly clips of others books, I think the book would be better written in a different style of writing. It's hard to follow but everything in it has so many takes. I would recommend it to anyone studying but not for a book review because the referencing takes hours lol

This is one of the best textbooks I've had as required reading for a uni paper. Very easy to read, full of great information, and spanning many, many approaches to counselling. If you have an interest in this kind of thing, it's a book you could easily pick up and read.

McLeods books are great, insightful, easy to understand counselling guides. Everything you will need for your university essays, including references to other useful books.

A useful if wordy introduction. At times, it reads like a table of contents.
