Sounds like a good addition to th ethics and law canon on practice. Would really appreciate winning this.

I would love to win this.... it sounds like it would be a big help.

Yes please, it will be such a help as I start my own practice.

One of the crucial things to be mindful of as a good therapist: working within the law. If only it was that straightforward practically... I'm sure the book would be very useful in this regard... for me definitely 🙂

I would love to have as a reference for good practice

Looks like the kind of book I need.

This book would be so useful - sounds like a great reference.

Looking at its contents, this book provides all the practicalities of becoming and being a psychotherapist. A much needed book for all practitioners. Thank you for writing and publishing it.

Sally Woodhouse for your private practice work!!

Would love this book it sounds as it would be a great tool and support as don't always feel that in rural Ireland.

A much needed revision of the law a it apllies to our practice, and linking it with the BACP framework will empower the counsellor and so, also enrich the clients' experience of the counselling service.

Yes please would love this! 😍
