The authors bring psychodynamic, person-centred, integrative or eclectic approaches to their selection of questions and answers.

Between them they have experience as counsellors, psychotherapists, trainers, counselling supervisors and authors.

The questions cover a range of issues that practitioners need to consider including: confidentiality, constraints and the management of confidentiality; boundaries, dual and multiple relationships, relationships with former clients; non-discriminatory practice, issues for individuals and agencies; competence and the proper conduct of counsellors and therapists and the profession's responsibilities to deliver non-exploitative and non-abusive help to clients.
