About the Author

Colin Feltham is series editor of Professional Skills for Counsellors and Short Introductions to the Therapy Professions series, co-editor of SAGE Handbook of Counselling and Psychotherapy and author of several SAGE texts, including What is Counselling?


`The book is written in a lucid conersational style and while it is accessible to non-specialists, few concessions are made for those who do not share the underlying tenets on which it is based.... Controversies in Psychotherapy and Counselling stands as a refreshing antidote to all those mutually affirming books on therapy. A little more grit of this sort may just help to make therapy the mature and socially beneficial pearl it potentially could be' - Journal of Critical Psychology, Counselling and Psychotherapy `Editor Colin Feltham's choice of topics shows an astute, on the ground awareness of the issues that dog the industry, while still making lively reading' - New Therapist `My congratulations to Colin Feltham for assembling a set of contentious issues and lively authors which together made me forget my surroundings' - Person-Centred Practice
