Dee – I would like to thank Paul Gordon, who encouraged me to write. I would also like to thank my formative social work and counselling teachers Tony Bolger and Val Harding Davies. I have a special debt of gratitude to John McLeod, who provided me with an invaluable education in research theory and practice.
Alistair – I would like to thank my colleagues at the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy, especially Tim Bond, Nancy Rowlands, Helen Coles, Hadyn Williams and Sarah Millward as well as the Professional Ethics and Quality Standards Committee.
