Praise for this book
′This is an accessible guide book about the different psychotherapy approaches and how they can be used to counsel patients. Adrian Pennington, a counselling psychologist, takes us through 12 of the most well-known and most used methods and explains exactly what they are and how to use them in practice. I liked the examples he uses for each method and also the fact that he gives the student extra reading on each approach so if you are particularly interested in an approach you have recommended texts to explore. I think it would be useful not only to mental health nurses but to all nurses as many patients will be in need of counselling at some point in their lives and it is good to be aware of all the approaches. Student nurses will also find this an interesting read as I did′ -
