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.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

    "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
    "Delightful"

    An imaginative and delightful story explaining the process and theories found in transactional analysis based therapy. The book would work well for students and those seeking understanding of their own feelings and behaviours while satisfying those wondering perhaps what happened next for the heroes of Wind in the Willows!! Thoroughly recommend.

    Story
    "Absolutely delightful. A must for counsellors."

    This is an extraordinary book, wonderfully read. I only wish all my counselling psychology text books and case studies were as beautifully written and accessible. This is not just for counsellors, this book is for anyone interested in psychoanalysis or Wind in the Willows.

    Story
    "I can't fault this"
    Would you listen to Counselling for Toads again? Why?

    Yes I will. There is so much in there and so much covered. At the end I was a little lost but that's you opportunity to identify everything you have heard.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The fact he turned the learning into a Story.


    What does Charles Hunt bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    Great Accents and you can hear he is a great Vocal Actor


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes. I just didn't have time

    "A useful and entertaining listen."

    I really enjoyed listening to Counselling for Toads. Non-fiction can be hard going, particularly when you are trying to do something else at the same time. This book was great for that. It has enough of a story to carry you along but is also a good "case study" covering many counselling standards. Only problem is that there are no diagrams with the download when there seem to have been with a tape or CD.

    "What a great book!"

    Bought this on recommendation and what an excellent tip that was! If only all of us were aware of our ego states and managed to stick to 'Adult' instead of 'Parent' or 'Child' at least in work environment, I bet working would become more fun and less stressful... Of course, one thing is reading a book, another is applying the knowledge...but still, at least I'm more aware of the ego states and try to manage them accordingly...An excellent fictional psychology book!
