Counseling Client

Resources To Help You Grow

A book for clients, written by a client

Counseling Client, written by Tyler Orr and Mark Carpenter is designed to help people get more from the process of counseling. Counseling Client informs and guides the reader to actively participate with a counselor and be the agent of change in his or her own life. The book can be used both in and out of therapy. Counseling Client is unique because it is written from the perspective of a client. Numerous self-help and how-to books cover topics similar to the ones in our table of contents, but Counseling Client is much more than a self-help or how-to book. It’s an extension of the counseling process—a complementary guide to help clients not only be more effective during therapy sessions, but to also continue therapeutic work between appointments. Counseling Client merges the proactive aspects of self-help with the healing power of the client/therapist bond and inspires the client to progress actively and confidently through every stage of the counseling process. There is a need in counseling literature for a book that helps clients succeed in counseling. Counseling Client addresses this need: a book for clients, written by a client.

The book is divided into two parts. The table of contents is listed below.
