Spirituality in Counselling and Psychotherapy explores the idea that throughout the course of a therapeutic relationship between therapist and client, a spiritual level is reached by the two people involved. The author shows how this dimension can help clients who are living in an increasingly secular and faithless society to find some resolution with the issues they bring to therapy. By exploring different perspectives on religion and spirituality, the book provides therapists with the grounding they need to introduce spiritually-centered counseling into their practice. It describes the characteristics of spiritual counseling and covers practical considerations such as: Recognizing indications from the client to move into a spiritual mode of therapy Exploring the 'self' through spiritual work within the therapeutic process, and how this can lead to healing and growth How to deal with doubt and skepticism over issues of spirituality The book is illustrated throughout with transcripts and case studies to show how therapists can integrate the spiritual within their own approach to therapeutic work. It will be invaluable to all those who wish to explore this dimension in their work with clients.
