    Person-Centred and Experiential Therapies: Contemporary Approaches and Issues in Practice

    An essential new guide for any person-centred trainee or practitioner, this book offers a unique focus on how to practise the various contemporary person-centred therapies. Written by leading UK-based and international authors, this authoritative and thought-provoking book is a must-read for anyone keen to understand the many approaches of person-centred therapy.

    “The chapter by Steve Cox is one of the best I have seen on the relational approach. It could be read with advantage by any therapist claiming to be integrative because it covers so much ground so well. The fourth chapter is by Glenn Fleish, and is a completely up to date look at Focusing and body language. Again it is extremely well done and contains a moving case study.”
