Focus Workbook Series
The FOCUS Workbook Series provides additional resources on issues that are common in the field of counselling. They are useful for those who require more information but who’d rather not enrol on a certificate course. In addition, they can act as a template for designing training sessions or they can function as a framework for running self help groups.
