This is the second edition of a book that I hope continues to be of practical value. For counselling must always be that: practical. No amount of talking, on its own, can really make a difference if people do not end up doing something as a result of counselling. The practical thread remains an important one throughout this edition. Counselling Skills for Health Professionals is not just a 'how to do it' book: people are probably too complicated for that approach to be of much use. Counselling is never simply a matter of learning a range of skills which you then apply in a range of settings. In the end, counselling is about facing the person in front of you, listening to them carefully and then supporting them as they work through their problems. For many problems, there are no easy answers and counselling doesn't offer any 'quick fixes'. It is essentially a supportive process. There are many things it cannot do. It cannot change certain social and political situations. It cannot cure diseases. On the other hand, what it can do is offer people more hope. Often, just the fact that there is somone who is prepared to hear your story and to listen to you is all that is needed. I remain convinced that the key issue in all types of counselling is the ability to listen.

This revised first edition is a comprehensive, easy-to-read introduction to personal counseling written for professional and volunteer counselors and those who train them. A major new addition to the book, making it particularly attractive to those who train counselors, is the inclusion of training group exercises for all skills chapters. After reading a particular chapter, the exercises relating to that chapter, in part VI of the book, can be used by trainers to greatly enhance the learning process. These exercises have been found to be popular with both students and those teaching them. The chapters describing basic and more advanced counseling skills are arranged in a sequence that is particularly suitable when teaching student counselors to learn and practice using these skills for the first time. The authors adopt an integrative approach that allows the reader to learn, understand, and use skills taken from major counseling approaches, and to integrate these into a sequential process that maximizes the possibility of facilitating change in clients. Of considerable value for new counselors are those sections of the book that describe the fundamental principles of the counseling relationship, and explain the theories of change applicable to the various approaches to counseling. Unique features include: a highly practical integrative approach; discussion of the specific skills required for success; practical suggestions on ways to learn and develop new skills; an understanding of the role of a counselor’s supervisor; information on practical issues such as keeping records, arrangement of the counseling room, and ways to look after yourself as a counselor; plus practical information on issues of confidentiality and professional ethics. The text will serve as a valuable resource for workers in a wide variety of helping professions where counseling skills are useful, such as psychology, social work, welfare work, medicine, nursing, human services, and education.
