Pluralistic counselling and psychotherapy

Mick Cooper, John McLeod

Research output: Book/ReportBook


As accessible and engaging as ever, the authors argue that there is no one right way of doing therapy and that different clients need different things at different times. By identifying and demonstrating the application of a range of therapeutic methods, Pluralistic Counselling and Psychotherapy outlines a flexible framework for practice within which appropriate methods can be selected depending on the client's individual needs and the therapist's knowledge and experience.
