The skilled helper model of counselling is hugely influential in the helping professions. Egan's Skilled Helper Model brings a number of new and challenging perspectives to bear on Egan's work and makes a major contribution to the development of this problem-management and opportunity-development approach to helping. Val Wosket draws on over twenty years experience of counselling, training and supervising to provide a clear exposition of the model and situate it in contemporary counselling practice. Numerous case studies are provided throughout, along with contributions from experienced practitioners, illustrating how the model can be applied in a variety of clinical settings and with a range of counselling issues. Egan's Skilled Helper Model builds on and extends the aims of Egan's original work, covering key topics, including: Developing a client-responsive approach that places the therapeutic relationship at the heart of the model Applying the skilled helper model in research, training and supervision Translating the model into more accessible and adaptable language This book provides an invaluable resource for trainees, trainers, supervisors and experienced practitioners wishing to update their knowledge of the model. It will also be of great interest to anyone in the helping professions looking for a pragmatic integrative framework that is adaptable to a diverse range of client issues and contexts.

If you don't want to study counseling formally but do want to understand the basics thoroughly enough to be an effective everyday counselor, this is where you start. Step by step, we show you how to become a skilled helper in all the roles you play in life, personal and professional. The book draws on the work of Professor Gerard Egan, whose approach has been followed by trained counselors and therapists around the world for well over 40 years. We've distilled these time-tested principles and practices to their essence but without compromising on their authenticity. Simplified, yes, but never simplistic. The book introduces a fresh and easy-to-follow way of looking at the helping process, breaking it down into a series of nine conversations that each represent a critical step on a logical journey from problem to some life-enhancing outcome. This flexible, all-purpose approach is independent of any psychological theory and makes sense to everyone, regardless of background. In short, it feels natural, and with practice becomes second nature, providing you with a framework for helping yourself as well as others deal with the challenges of living. We describe the seven essential communication skills you need to have at your command when helping people to make beneficial decisions about their problems, issues and opportunities. Throughout, key concepts are supported with examples and structured exercises.
