Publisher's Summary

"Toad", the famous character in Kenneth Graham's The Wind in the Willows, is in a very depressed state, and his good friends Rat, Mole, and Badger are "worried that he might do something silly".... "First they nursed him. Then they encouraged him. Then they told him to pull himself together.... Finally, Badger could stand it no longer.

"Now look here Toad, this can go on no longer," he said sternly. "There is only one thing left. You must have counselling!"

Robert de Board's engaging account of Toad's experience of counselling will capture the imagination of the growing number of people who are interested in counselling and the counselling process. In this sequel to the story of life on the riverbank, Toad and his friends come to life all over again. Heron, the counsellor, uses the language and ideas of transactional analysis as his counselling method. Through the sessions, or chapters of the book, Toad learns how to analyse his own feelings and develop his emotional intelligence. By the end of the book, as debonair as ever, he is setting out on a completely new adventure.

Appropriate for anyone approaching counselling, whether as a student, client or counsellor, Counselling for Toads will appeal to both children and adults of all ages.

    "Essential Listening for Counselling Students"

    I found this audio book a welcome change of format from all my other 'text books'. It is entertaining and informative and I would argue essential for anyone starting their exploration of Transactional Analysis.

    Story
    "Transactional Analysis in progress"

    This book is a light hearted, easy to follow example of how Transactional Analysis can be used to help the depressed client. It can also be of help to the depressed reader; giving clear examples of psychological games people play, how to recognise and make sense of game playing and how to therefore, stop replicating the same story/mistakes in life. It was narrated excellently, with plenty of enthusiasm, enabling the listener to imagine each of the players and get a real feel for their characters! I highly recommend this audio book
