'This book is very comprehesive and a useful addition to the reading list for healthcare students'





'Excellent student text'





'Invaluable text'





`This edition retains the same informative and accessible style and broadly the same order of contents as the First Edition, which makes it easy for readers to track down key changes. The author's extensive experience in the field of ethics in counselling and his experience as Chair of BACP underpin this updated, essential and authoritative Second Edition' - British Journal of Guidance and Counselling





'Tim Bond has done a great service to the counselling profession by writing, and now updating, this book... His particular strength must surely be his clarity in acquainting counsellors with the complexities of British law. After an introduction, he starts with an exploration of the origins and scope of counselling. He then exemplifies cases in which a counsellor's personal and professional values collide. He has collected together a host of ethical dilemmas that counsellors might have to face' - Naomi Stadlen, Journal of the Society for Existential Analysis





This highly acclaimed guide to the major responsibilities which trainees and counsellors in practice must be aware of before working with clients has now been fully revised and updated. The Second Edition examines issues fundamental to the process of counselling. A wide range of ethical problems are discussed and advice is given for resolving these dilemmas.





Tim Bond outlines the values and ethical principles inherent in counselling and points out that the counsellor is at the centre of a series of responsibilities: to the client, to him/herself as a counsellor and to the wider community. He covers topics such as: confidentiality; legal aspects of counselling; working with suicidal clients; false or recovered memory; record- keeping; and the importance of adequate supervision.
