Healthcare Counselling and Psychotherapy Journal
It is a pleasure to read a book about supervisory practice that invites the reader as this does.

I would highly recommend this book for all supervisors and practice learning assessors.
The Fulcrum (Journal of the Craniosocial Therapy Association)
This glorious little book is for anyone who is dubious about the value of supervision. anyone who argued against mandatory supervision at the 2007 CSTA AGM, and all supervisors and supervisees who want more from the supervisory relationship. Right now.I'm off to find a new supervisor.
Overall the book presents a rich tapestry of writers with an eclectic mix of training and experience. In this respect I feel there is something for everyone to dip in and out of.
Shohet, a member of the Scottish spiritual community Findhorn, brings together supervisors from the fields of consultancy, education, psychotherapy, youth work, and medicine, many of whom have been supervising for over 29 years. The contributors explain why supervision continues to be just as important as when they first started, and many impart a spiritual perspective when describing how and why they have managed to stay passionate about their chosen career.

We see this through the various heart-felt experiences and stories of the different helping professionals that Robin Shohet has brought together
