Health care settings can differ greatly from other counselling environments, requiring newcomers to become familiar with new rituals, practices and cultures. This clear and comprehensive text shows trainees and qualified practitioners how to respond positively and with confidence to the diverse situations they might face in a variety of health care settings. Practical, accessible and engaging, the book explores the ways in which the health care context – whether hospital, primary care, specialist or community setting - affects the counsellor's role and shapes the therapeutic process. The authors draw on their vast experience to give tried-and-tested advice on a variety of practice issues, from confidentiality and giving bad news to judging the pace and duration of sessions. In particular, the book: ■ provides a pluralistic model for practice, including systemic, solution-focused, cognitive-behavioural and person-centred ideas; ■ shows how to work collaboratively and effectively in a multi-disciplinary team; ■ includes extensive examples, scripts of therapeutic encounters and handy checklists. Counselling in Health Care Settings makes an excellent resource for busy practitioners and is an essential handbook for newly qualified therapists and trainees.

'The style of writing, including individual stories, makes the text easy to read and accessible. As a result this book is suitable for both academic as well as non-academic readers.' - Book Reviews 'An easily readable and informative text. This book should be well thumbed book in all occupational therapy departments, if only to provide us with a consistent reminder of the complex interplay between the physical, emotional and psychological aspects of living, which enable each individual to achieve the balanced state of being a well person.' - British Journal of Occupational Therapy 'This is a very engaging book which presents the topic of counselling in health care in a readable and accessible way.[It] is a good resource for occupational therapists wishing to know more about counselling in healthcare settings. It is suitable for both students and qualified staff and is written in a style that encourages further reading. It is well referenced and relevant research is referred to throughout.' British Journal of Occupational Therapy 'This is an excellent sequel to Counsellors in Health Settings. The honesty of the accounts is inspiring as the authors explore frankly the difficulties they and their clients face, rather than simply giving idealistic accounts of how counselling should work. It cannot fail to increase awareness about a wide range of health problems that people experience and the often hidden consequences.' - Mental Health Magazine 'What I find most interesting about this book is that counselling is considered as part of the multidisciplinary team approach and thus is an interesting example of how counselling can work when offered in the rehabilitative or primary care setting to great advantage to both the client and rehab team. The book is easy to read and offers an experiential perspective rather than a theoretical one. However, the book does have a research perspective, and examples of narrative and postmodernist approach are used to complement the stories in the book without being overbearing.' - Heathcare Counselling and Psychotherapy Journal Individuals experiencing rehabilitation are subject to profound life adjustments, and the contributors to this book explore how the relationship between counsellor and client can be a source of support during that time. Describing pioneering initiatives in a range of rehabilitation settings the authors draw out the historical background and theoretical implications of their work and make recommendations for good practice. Rehabilitation experiences in both physical and psychological health care are described, including those of survivors of strokes, problematic drug or alcohol users, people who have sustained hearing loss or head injury and those affected by chronic bowel disorder and multiple sclerosis. Contributors describe the innovative work they are undertaking in NHS rehabilitation settings such as a head injury unit and a post-operative rehabilitation counselling service. Other contributions include a chapter from the perspective of a counsellor within a voluntary organisation, the Bristol Area Stroke Foundation, and a chapter by a counsellor working with clients undergoing community rehabilitation. Several chapters are written from the client's perspective by authors who have themselves received counselling as part of their programme of rehabilitation. This pioneering book introduces the reader to creative approaches to research and counselling including the use of poetry, groupwork and narrative ideas and will inform the work of counsellors, clients, health care workers and policy makers.

The chapters are divided loosely around life cycle events, starting with couples in sexual health, ante natal and postnatal care, couples with sick children, trauma, mental health, chronic illness, later life and dying. Domestic violence and cultural issues are also included. The authors are themselves clinicians and trainers in couple therapy, and have created this practice-based text to the needs of general practitioners, professionals allied to medicine, nurses, counsellors and psychotherapists, as well as those who train and supervise them.

Counselling supervision is an expanding area, as increasing numbers of counsellors enter the profession and require supervision on a regular basis. Counselling Supervision in Organisations seeks to provide a model of counselling supervision within organisations, enabling supervisors, counsellors and their line managers to work effectively within organisational cultures for the benefit of all parties in the working alliance. Drawing on her own research, Sue Copeland explores both counselling and supervision cultures and their fit with various organisational cultures. The dilemmas that often arise from a clash between differing cultural norms are discussed in relation to the supervisory process. From securing a supervisory position, contracting for the work, reporting back to the organisation, assessing the work and ending the relationship, through to an in-depth consideration of the supervisory work embedded in a good working relationship, her model provides a blueprint for the supervisory process. The model described in Counselling Supervision in Organisations brings together the cultures of counselling and supervision and their relation to organisational cultures. It will provide a unique resource for counsellors, trainee and professional counselling supervisors and their line managers.

She outlines how to develop ethically appropriate research methods, how to carry out reflexive research and reflects on the knowledge that she has gained from her own research, teasing out its benefits for those working with a range of diseases in healthcare settings. This book will be valued by counsellors and other professionals working in healthcare settings, particularly those working with ongoing medical conditions.
