About the Author

John McLeod has held appointments in universities in the UK, New Zealand and Italy, and is currently Professor of Counselling at the Institute for Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy, Dublin, and Professor of Psychology, University of Oslo. He is committed to promoting the relevance of research as a means of informing therapy practice and improving the quality of services that are available to clients, and has received an award from the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy for his exceptional contribution to research. His writing has influenced a generation of trainees in the field of counselling, counselling psychology and psychotherapy, and his books are widely adopted on training programmes across the world.


'This book provides an excellent access route into counselling and psychotherapy research for trainees and practitioners alike. It does a great job in de-mystifying research and conveying the sense that research is something really everyone can understand and do.'

Dr Andreas Vossler,
Director of the Foundation Degree in Counselling at The Open University

McLeod has a capacity to take the most complex (and sometimes potentially boring) subject and bring it to life in writing that is clear, accessible and just simply very readable...Having read this book from beginning to end, there is simply nothing bad I want to say about it. I would unquestioningly and without hesitation recommend it to any new or, indeed, experienced counselling and psychotherapy researcher and it will become, I have no doubt, a key text.
