Critic Reviews

Brilliant, enlightening, practical. A gem of a book. (British Journal of Guidance and Counselling)

One of the most reliable (and readable) guides to what is involved in counselling...Jacobs' well-organized and comprehensive summaries of the main theories and his illustrations of psychodynamic counselling drawn from his own work will inspire students and trainees on counselling and therapy courses. They will also interest (and create envy) in more experienced readers. (Professor Andrew Samuels, Centre for Psychoanalytic Studies, University of Essex) 

This is one of a very small number of books that manage to describe simply, but not simplistically, what analytic work involves. (British Journal of Medical Psychology)
