Press Reviews

  • Audrey Tait, senior practitioner Edinburgh city council, co-author of the Practical Guides to Direct Work series

    Neil has given us an invaluable manual which will support anybody in the role of facilitating learning and indeed be very useful to the learners themselves. The manual promotes the drawing together of practice and Theory and is an extremely accessible read. I appreciated the use of reflective moment boxes and key points and anticipate that my copy will become well-worn with use!
