In Tales from the Therapy Room, the author provides ten fictional short stories that give students of counseling and psychotherapy a unique insight into what actually goes on in therapy. Exploring aspects of the client-therapist relationship, the reader is given a fly-on-the-wall view of the therapeutic process. Rather than suggesting a ′correct′ approach, they explore possibilities and provide entertaining, vivid and thought-provoking descriptions of the therapeutic journey. Issues explored include contracting, boundaries and confrontation, self-disclosure on the part of the therapist, dream interpretation, the influence of the consulting room environment, and conflicting belief systems.

These are much more than just engaging stories – Phil Lapworth draws on over 25 years of clinical experience to show how the student can integrate theory into real practice with real clients. The final chapter explicitly highlights the specific theories, models and issues that are illustrated throughout and provides questions, learning objectives, exercises and Further Reading to encourage critical thinking.

About the Author:

Phil Lapworth is a counsellor, psychotherapist and supervisor in private practice near Bath and has written extensively in the field of counselling and psychotherapy.

Review:

′What I think these stories do particularly well is expose and bring to the fore the therapist′s latent world′, in terms of the thoughts, feelings, and responses to clients, which so clearly guide the therapist in every moment of the interaction′ -

′This is a collection of short stories which cunningly raise a wide range of professional issues relevant to many different models, in an entertaining and thought provoking way. I would highly recommend this book as a refreshing read for experienced counsellors and a very readable adjunct to academic material for students, but all the more as a tool for trainers′ -
Meg Harper, Counsellor, writer and teacher

′These engaging, moving, informative, warm and surprising stories convey the key points in counselling and psychotherapy practice. Overall, a beautifully written book that should be a real asset to the counselling and psychotherapy literature.′
Mick Cooper, Professor of Counselling
University of Strathclyde

′I′ve read each of these stories through several times, simply because to do so was a sheer delight. They are written with warmth and humour, and give a valuable insight into the world of therapy.′
Mike Simmons
University of Wales, Newport

′I honestly thought this was the best book I have come across relating to therapy. I picked up more than I had in course handouts or from the reading list textbooks.′
HNC Counselling & Psychotherapy student
Anniesland College
