Lisbeth Sommerbeck as ever gives us insightful and razor sharp analysis of the topic and provides learning for all those interested in this approach to helping. Through this short text, Lisbeth has made a significant contribution to a little-addressed area of person-centred therapy theory and practice. --Dr David Murphy, Programme Leader, MA Person-Centred Experiential Counselling and Psychotherapy, University of Nottingham, UK
Sommerbeck brings her depth of experience and theoretical clarity to this book in which she discusses the myriad ways in which the therapist s limits are encountered in the practice of therapy, illustrating her clear theoretical responses with transcripts of examples. Her ethical perspective shines through, along with her humility and acceptance of her own idiosyncrasies. This book will be an invaluable tool for students and experienced therapists to consider further our own ethical stances with respect to therapist limits. --Dr Gillian Proctor, Associate Professor in Counselling, University of Nottingham, UK
Lisbeth Sommerbeck combines a wealth of clinical experience, in-depth theoretical knowledge and critical thinking to an area that can present person-centred therapists with complex issues and dilemmas. She lays out clearly the many challenges and controversies with particular attention to contexts and how they influence therapeutic practice. In so doing, she enables therapists to approach their work with greater self-awareness, self-respect and integrity. This insightful and helpful book demonstrates ultimately reflecting a deep respect and care for the client. --Dr Rachel Freeth, Psychiatrist and person-centred counsellor
There are many reasons why the practice of person-centred therapy can become difficult. An issue that is frequently brought to supervision is when the therapist's limits are challenged. It is therefore surprising that there is very little in the client-centred literature about therapist limits in counselling and psychotherapy with adult clients. This provides the rationale for this book as it attempts to redress that omission, offers a review of the existing literature and provides a starting point for discussion.Lisbeth Sommerbeck writes from her many years' experience as a psychotherapist working in the Danish psychiatric care system with clients with severe and enduring mental health problems. Many therapists fear that this client group will challenge their limits and Sommerbeck provides a straightforward appreciation of the problems and offers solutions.
