Learning and Being in Person-Centred Counselling
About this deal
She is a UK Council for Psychotherapy Registered Psychotherapist and teaches a Masters level programme in Contemporary Person-Centred Psychotherapy and Applications. The book invites readers to engage deeply with how they might honestly ‘live the theory’ of the person-centred approach. It covers the basic issues, but does so in more depth, and with a greater appreciation for the ranges of alternative opinions, than do some of the other introductory books I've read.

Merry grounds person-centred counselling in its ontological foundations and shows how theory informs our practice and how the counsellor’s attitudes are essential to their practice.Despite being first published more than 20 years ago, this book remains relevant to contemporary person-centred counselling practice.
Students who want to understand how to practise person-centred counselling will find useful suggestions and insight into how to accompany a client on their individual journey. Clearly, I believe in Carl Rogers' theories, otherwise I wouldn't have spent the past four years training in his style of counselling, but he was ultimately a scientist and some of his theory does get a tad complicated for my non-scientific brain.It brings theory to life with its suggestions for exploring and developing person-centred values, qualities, attitudes and skills. This process-focused reflexivity, so essential in person-centred practice, makes this newly revised version invaluable and important for readers of all backgrounds. The book Learning and Being in Person-Centred Counselling by Tony Merry has inspired and guided thousands of counselling students since it was first published in 1999. The late Tony Merry wrote in plain English, so it's an easier way to get one's head around the theory, rather than getting caught-up in scientific psychobabble.
