Michael Jacobs in Conversation with Frank Wills

Synopsis
Michael Jacobs’ work has made a significant contribution to the development of counselling in Britain and, since the publication of his first book ‘Still Small Voice’ in 1982 he has produced a range of books on pastoral and psychodynamic counselling. His ‘Presenting Past’ is seen by many as being the core textbook on psychodynamics but all his work is notable for being extremely user-friendly, with complex ideas being presented in a manner which makes them easy to understand. He makes strong links between theory and practice, giving examples which are immediately accessible to the reader. In this interview he talks about his work, his ideas and the way in which his thinking has developed over the years.
