Useful reading

We have a collection of useful counselling books listed below, as well as a large collection of papers that Paul Colley has kindly collated from past editions of person-centered quarterly. Paul has collated a large number of publications from old copies of PCQ and has kindly extracted these for us. They are available to download for anyone who is interested, and hopefully provide a flavour of the kinds of articles that are included in our quarterly magazine.
