In the opinion of Dorothea Brandt, author of the famous Becoming a
Writer (1981), all writing is autobiographical in one way or another. Hence
this book may be seen to represent not only something about its topic,
person-centred counselling psychology, but also something about me, as
its author. Certainly, the focus of the book evolved from the disparate
strands of my own career, firstly as an academic psychologist, then, as a
person-centred counsellor, and now as a counselling psychologist.
