Every year thousands of people train in counselling, but a large percentage that start training drop out. This informative guidebook is designed to help you decide if you want to be a counsellor, and if you do, tells you how to go about it. It spells out the training necessary, provides a useful 'menu' of counselling approaches, and helps you to decide if you have the right qualities to succeed and enjoy it.
Val Potter draws on her own experience to help you get the most from the compelling process of becoming a counsellor.
If you could sum up Is Counselling Training for You? in three words, what would they be?
Informative, and intriguing
What was one of the most memorable moments of Is Counselling Training for You??
No spoiler comments but I like the objectivity of the author, asking questions and sharing views more than telling and directing.
Would you listen to another book narrated by Geoff Barham?
Maybe, if the Author is male maybe. otherwise Geoff can be confusing cause he is almost using the same voice across all the different personalities of the book.
Any additional comments?
the Book is very British focused, which isn't bad if you live in England. it references a lot of associations and institutions in England that are irrelevant if you don't live there. other parts of the book are very valuable nonetheless.

First of all, the narrator was very, very good. He read at the perfect pace and was very easy to listen to and understand.
My only criticism would be that, throughout, plenty of tricky terminology was used that requires the listener/reader to have some basic knowledge of psychology and/or counselling.
On the whole though, a very good overview of what to expect from a counselling course and I would recommend to those considering embarking on such a challenge.
