Reviews

insightful ... I would be recommending this as essential reading to any psychology student but probably more so to anyone who regularly has conversations with others about anxiety, stress or any psychological issues. Using this book will remind you that you are not alone. * Paul Watson, Nursing Times *
This is a well-balanced, accessible, and clear account of the practice, outlook, and training of clinical psychologists, drawing on clinical examples to illustrate how psychologists make their contribution a a valuable resource for laypeople, students, and fellow professionals. * Tony Roth, Professor of Clinical Psychology, UCL *
