I feel it would have been useful to read this book during my foundation studies, or while I was considering training, as it provides an excellent overview. By far the most useful aspect of the book were the activities advocated within the text, which I found positioned certain issues differently to how I learned about them during my training, and coaxed me into examining things in a new way. I would firmly advocate giving this to people in the formative stages of their journey into a helping profession. -- Ben Scanlan A highly engaging and comprehensive introduction to `helping' and the skills needed to practice in this field. Accessible, practical and effective. -- Amy Hill In this engaging book, Jane Westergaard draws on her extensive knowledge and experience as a helper and educator. Those who are new to counselling, coaching and mentoring are in safe hands here; those who are already familiar with these disciplines will find much to stimulate and provoke fresh thinking. -- David Britten
