`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.'
`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.'
`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.'
`This is an excellent sequel to Counsellors in Health Settings… The honesty of the accounts is inspring 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'.
`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.'
