COUNSELLING FOR TOADS by Robert de Board
It is a must read for anyone who has wondered if counselling is something they would benefit from, but feel they don’t know enough about it. Through the use of these well known characters, de Board brings to life the purpose, process and benefits of counselling in a private and informal way.
This was the first book recommended to me when I started my own journey into therapy and counselling back in 2006 and it really helped me understand why I found myself sitting in a comfy chair in a counselling room. I could relate to the experiences and feelings of Toad as well as the concerns of his friends Rat, Mole and Badger, and the different strains Toad’s behaviour was having on each of them. To quote the back of the book; this book is “appropriate for anyone approaching counselling, whether as student, client or counsellor, Counselling for Toads will appeal to both children and adults of all ages.”
An enjoyable and thought provoking read which I hope you enjoy.

Back of the Book Blurb:
“Robert de Board’s engaging account of Toad’s experience of counselling will capture the imagination of the growing readership of people who are interested in counselling and the counselling process. In this sequel to the story of life on the river bank, Toad and his friends come to life all over again.
Heron, the counsellor, uses the language 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.”
