`Any cognitive therapy text which quotes from Alice in Wonderland is off to a good start - and in the case of Counselling for Anxiety Problems, it gets better and better. This is an excellent book written by counselling psychologists, aimed primarily at counselling psychologists. Diana Sanders and Frank Wills are experienced cognitive therapists, who, through various books, are performing a valuable role of building bridges between counsellors and the practice of cognitive therapists. In doing so, they lay to rest many of the misconceptions counsellors may have about cognitive therapy (often based on an 80s version of the therapy), and place particular emphasis on the central importance of therapeutic relationship in cognitive therapy, as in counselling. Their review and discussion of the anxiety disorders is comprehensive and contemporary, as indicated by the number of references from the past five years. Furthermore their clinical experience, as well as their humour, shines through. Although primarily aimed at the counselling market, it will be just as useful for therapists from a variety of backgrounds. I can thoroughly recommend this book' - Amazon Review Anxiety is one of the most common psychological problems for which people seek help. Through research, major advances have been made in understanding the causes of anxiety, the different forms it takes and how problems perpetuate. In turn this has led to the development of more targeted ways of helping sufferers. Based on these findings, Counselling for Anxiety Problems, Second Edition presents accessible and up-to-date guidelines on the most effective ways of helping clients with anxiety problems. The authors outline general methods of working with anxiety sufferers and highlight the issues specific to this client group. Counsellors need to select appropriate interventions depending on the particular problems experienced by each client. The second part of the book therefore shows how to adapt counselling interventions to different forms of anxiety, such as: - panic - worry - agoraphobia - social and other phobias - health anxiety, and - obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). Whilst being cognitive in focus, the book is accessible to counsellors from different orientations who wish to broaden their understanding and skills in relation to anxiety. Based on the authors' own clinical experience, the book makes extensive use of detailed case examples to illustrate different ways of formulating and working with anxiety. Counselling for Anxiety Problems, Second Edition is suitable for practitioners of all levels, from those in training to those with more experience who wish to update and refresh their methods of working with anxious clients.

This book breaks new ground by relating mindfulness to all of the other therapeutic approaches, across all the common presenting problems in counselling & psychotherapy. Mindfulness is increasingly recognised as an effective therapeutic treatment with positive research outcomes evaluating its success. Meg Barker responds to our growing consciousness of mindfulness approaches, considering how its principles can inform everyday therapeutic work. The book: - covers ways in which mindfulness approaches complement each therapeutic approach, as well as any potential conflicts and tensions that might arise - spells out how a mindfulness approach would understand - and work with - common presenting issues, including depression, anxiety and addiction - brings together work on mindfulness from across psychotherapy, science, and philosophy - suggests possible future directions in mindfulness, particularly those which emphasise the social component of suffering. This engaging and accessible book will appeal to all counselling and psychotherapy students, as well as any therapist looking to complement their own approach with mindfulness theory and practice.

Recent evidence has shown that the successful setting of goals brings about positive outcomes in psychological therapy. Goals help to focus and direct clients' and therapists' attention in therapeutic work. They also engender hope and help energise clients. No longer are clients victims of their circumstances, but through goal setting they become people who have the potential to act towards and achieve their desired futures. Through the discussing and setting of goals, clients develop a deeper insight into what it is that they really want in life: a crucial first step towards being able to get there. Recent policies in both child and adult mental health services have supported the use of goals in therapy. However, the differing cultures, histories, psychologies, and philosophical assumptions of each form of therapy has brought about varying attitudes and approaches to goal setting. Working with Goals in Counselling and Psychotherapy brings the attitudes of all the major therapeutic orientations together in one volume. With examples from cognitive behaviour therapy, psychodynamic therapy, humanistic therapy, interpersonal therapy, and systemic therapy Working with Goals in Counselling and Psychotherapy truly is the definitive guide for therapists seeking to work with goals in any of the psychological therapies.
