Dictionary of Images and Symbols in Counselling - First edition

£14.99

Product description

This dictionary analyses and explains numerous symbols and images, with an emphasis on their use in counselling. Some of the subjects refer to sayings in everyday use, and all of them have an imagery content. The book is intended to help the reader understand the vast wealth of symbols and symbolic language. Indexes and contents lists drawing out schematic structures of the symbols - nature, animal, human, man-made, religious, mythological, abstract, or individual - make for easier reference.

The author, William Stewart, spent four years as a Student Counsellor/Lecturer at St George's and Roehampton College of Health Studies, London, and twenty years in the Royal Army Medical Corps as a specialist in mental health.

This is volume one of a two-volume set, the companion volume (which we do not have) being entitled "Imagery and Symbolism in Counselling".

First edition, 1998. Paperback in very good condition, some small creasing to corners, with pencil inscription on front endpaper but no other markings that we can see.
