The book will also be of value to the many healthcare and social care professionals who, whilst they may specialise in other areas, will find that the issues dealt with in this volume have impact on the work they are doing. For them, the text demystifies what can occur in therapy, and provides useful ways of working that may be used by professionals other than counsellors. Potential clients will also gain an insight into the process.
The book does not attempt to demonstrate a definitive way to apply person-centred principles to supervision, but does demonstrate core principles. It will prove valuable to experienced and novice supervisors, and to those uncertain about supervising counsellors working in areas outside their own professional experience. It should also be read by counsellors in training who are preparing to be supervised, for whom the book offers insights into this collaborative process.

Welcome to the life of a junior doctor: 97-hour weeks, life and death decisions, a constant tsunami of bodily fluids, and the hospital parking meter earns more than you.
Scribbled in secret after endless days, sleepless nights and missed weekends, Adam Kay's This is Going to Hurt provides a no-holds-barred account of his time on the NHS front line. Hilarious, horrifying and heartbreaking, this diary is everything you wanted to know – and more than a few things you didn't – about life on and off the hospital ward.

Andy is a man troubled by his past. Brought up by an aunt and uncle following the deaths of his parents, he is seeking to address his binge-drinking and the effect it is having on his life. However, he was not the only one affected by the murder he witnessed in childhood. His older brother, Terry, regularly drinks himself into oblivion, and spends much of his time in 'alcohol blackout'. It all leads to tragedy, as heavy drinking so often does.
Graham (Andy's therapist) is the man destined to share Andy's emotional and psychological roller-coaster journey. Can he help Andy makes sense of what is happening to him? Can he help him break free of his past, and alcohol's grip on his present? The characters have a reality that will haunt you and leave you with a deeper understanding of the human struggle to resolve heavy drinking.
Binge! is the first in a series of titles being written to address a range of contemporary issues in a therapeutic context.
