Counselling psychology has come of age as a profession.

The issues that clients bring to therapy are explored in perspective, including the contextualisation of therapeutic approaches and psychological counselling services, counselling training, professional competence, counselling supervision and a code of conduct for counsellors. The emerging themes in counselling psychology in traditional societies in the contemporary world are explored with a multi-cultural setting, including the current issues in therapy, outcomes of counselling, need for continuing professional development, monitoring and evaluation of available services, and further research development.
This book is a vital reading for counsellors, psychologists, psychotherapists, as well as other helping professionals, including teachers, doctors, nurses, social workers, the clergy, etc.
