About the Author

Liesl Silverstone was a Fellow of the British Association of Counselling (BACP). She was a tutor, counsellor and art therapist for over 30 years, and was the founder of the Person-centred Art Therapy Centre, London.


The book provides a fascinating glimpse into the person-centred approach to counselling and art therapy... this is a book which almost demands to be read from cover to cover, not randomly dipped into - Art Therapy - The Person-Centred Way does repay the time and attention given to it. This is, I feel, true for readers who may be largely umfamiliar with the work of Carl Rogers and his followers. Prior to reading Art Therapy - The Person-Centred Way I do not believe I had fully appreciated the core beliefs underpinning the person-centred model or, indeed, how challenging, in some respects, these are to my own psychodynamically informed ones. -- Inscape
[A] fascinating account of art therapy training. Silverstone...describes with clarity and transparency her unique hybrid: art and person-centred counselling. Silverstone's book not only illustrates that experience retold is more colourful than `grey theory' but that in this case, it can also offer a valuable insight into a group's life. Busy practitioners can gain much from this 'chatty', non-academic manual of group work ideas [which are] applicable in most settings. -- British Journal of Occupational Therapy
An effective course in person-centred art therapy based on the philosophy which empowers the person and helps make them more self-directed. -- Carl Rogers
The book is divided into short chapters which detail the thirty sessions the students had over the year. There are lots of examples, clearly laid out exercises, games, imaging, and suggestions as to applications of those techniques. I can recommend this book not only to those already using this approach but also as an introduction for others who would like the flavour of the technique. -- Health and Hygiene
This is a remarkable book. It tells the reader as much about counselling, experiential learning, and "managing" such a course, as it does about art therapy and so should attract a large audience. It should appeal to therapists, artists - and to all those concerned about human wellbeing. For dipping into, for reference purposes, or for a cover-to-cover read, it's well worth a try. -- Growth Point

Reviews of the previous edition:'It is a study of an exceptional student-centred facilitator at work.'

-- Counselling News
I enjoyed this immensely readable book. Silverstone and her students describe with honesty and sensitivity their development in both individual and collective terms. I would recommend this very interesting and forthright book to anyone who is interested in developments in person-centred therapy or in thinking about the use of art as a therapeutic tool in a person-centred counselling context. -- Counselling
It is clear that Liesl Silverstone is indeed a uniquely talented teacher, a sensitive therapist and an energetic and effective proponent of the person-centred approach. -- Dramatherapy
