Peter Madsen Gubi and Valda Swinton have brought together important research into little-explored topics that are applicable to the field of counselling and psychotherapy. Each contributor has undertaken qualitative research into their chosen topic, and this book disseminates that research in a highly accessible manner.

The aim of the volume is to inform counsellors and psychotherapists, and those in allied professions who support and care for people, towards developing a greater awareness of issues they may encounter. These include sexuality after breast cancer in young, single women; the impact of pregnancy loss on women who delayed childbirth and remain childless; adult reflections on being an only child; processing parental rejection through personal development; the nature of school-based counselling; the impact of emotional labour on secondary school teachers; and the impact of inappropriately referred clients on counselling trainees in placement.

Reviews and Endorsements

'This book provides unique insights into areas of lived human experience that are rarely considered in counselling and psychotherapy literature. Based on excellent research projects, each chapter offers an engaging and informative lens into a neglected theme. These themes include ones highly relevant to therapeutic practice, as well as ones with wider professional and societal significance. In this respect, Peter Madsen Gubi and Valda Swinton have produced an invaluable edited collection for those working in allied professional fields such as education, mental health, pastoral care, and social work, as well as for counsellors and psychotherapists.'
- Dr Phil Goss, Director of Counselling and Psychotherapy, Centre for Lifelong Learning, University of Warwick, UK
