Following the successful publication of "Practical Psychology", I considered the facts that there are a great number of individuals who would like to engage the services of a psychologist but are unable to, due to cost; and in the UK, the list within the NHS is extremely long. Therefore, many individuals who need help, do not get that help. My hope is that through applying what you learn from this book, this will be all the help you need.
This book does not claim to answer the needs of every client. However, whatever difficulties you the client are experiencing, this book can help in one way or another.
This book provides psychological approaches to therapy with what is referred to as an integrative methodology in psychological interventions. But not just any integrative methodology, one that works for most clients. An integrative methodology means, that we use several approaches to ensure the greatest probability that you will get well.
"Practical Psychology", included a great deal of what is referred to as psychometric data, basically, the proof that the approaches to therapy that I employ, work. Clearly, this information is not needed for a client such as yourself, therefore, it is not included in this book.

About the Author
Robert Jones has had a varied career path. After leaving school at the age of fifteen years with no qualifications because, according to his teachers, he wasn't good enough to study for GCE qualifications, he embarked on an apprenticeship with the North Thames Gas Board, in Essex, UK. After a number of years during which he travelled to Australia and New Zealand and back to the UK; and also during which his career included gas fitting, plumbing, fire-fighting, teaching, and providing nutritional consultations Robert qualified as a Clinical and Counselling Psychologist and he is registered in both fields with the Health Care Professions Council (HCPC) in the UK. Robert is also a Chartered Member of the British Psychological Society (BPS) and he is an Associate Fellow of the BPS (AFBPsS). Over the years Robert has developed a wide range of skills in performance fields. For example, while pursuing his teaching career he also was a professional puppeteer, part-time film and TV extra, and singer. These skills have become invaluable in his work as a psychologist, allowing him to extend himself when working as a therapist, particularly when working with children. Robert's lowly beginning has availed him many opportunities to help his clients to recognise their own potentials. By expounding on a range of life experiences while giving the client the understanding that he is discussing another person, not himself, Robert is able to guide his clients while he is encouraging them to reach their goals and, thereby, further their own emotional development. Having worked as a psychologist in hospitals both in Australia and various parts of the UK, Robert is now in private practice. He accepts referrals for clients with a wide range of psychological/emotional difficulties and his greatest delight is when he has to say goodbye because his clients have made progress and do not require his help any further.
