Praise for this book
′An exciting and important book, which demonstrates that ethical practice can be - in fact, must be - alive and creative as well as safe and boundaried′ -

Nick Totton, author of Wild Therapy

′This book reminded me of the inspirational work of James Bugenthal, no praise is higher. It is both a helpful and practical guide, encouraging a deep enquiry into the values that counsellors and psychotherapists bring to their work, and at the same time a source of wisdom in its own right, one that draws on the evidently rich experience of the authors. Experienced practitioners, reviewing and reflecting on their practice, have much to gain from it, so too do senior trainees approaching accreditation. It has a special value to trainers by means of a highly imaginative and accessible use of exercises and vignettes that help capture the true nature of the therapeutic encounter′ -
Sean Maloney, UKCP registered psychotherapist and supervisor and Chair of Ethics for the Karuna Institute
