Publications & Media

Wounds UK

I am in the process of writing a series of articles for Wounds UK, a major international healthcare communications business with a global reach in wound management. I will be releasing articles in each quarterly edition of the publication and updating them below.

Patient-centred care and the biopsychosocial model

The lost art of self-care


Mental health in the modern world: Capitalism and congruence

In last year's series, I focused on dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic through a person-centred approach. You can read the four articles, here:


Acceptance / Unconditional Positive Regard



There is also a video of me explaining the articles, which can be viewed here.

Chris The Counsellor YouTube Channel

I set out a couple of years ago to make a YouTube channel which made Counselling Information Easy and Accessible, with a particular focus on the Person-Centred approach. Uploads had to have a bit of a break due to setting up Haulm but you can see my old videos here and I will be uploading more in the near future. Feedback welcome!

I have also set up another website to complement this channel with articles on a whole host of topics from person-centred theory to setting up a private practice, and you can find these here.

Are we really Person-centred?

Further information and discussion on my article "The problem with Pluralism", which was featured in Therapy Today

Although the article was entitled "The Problem of Pluralism", it was not aimed at the Pluralistic approach (ala Cooper and McCloud) which you can see me discussing here. Instead, it was regarding the difficulty of integrating the person-centred approach with other approaches to Counselling, especially CBT, whilst maintaining an accurate label of person-centred therapy. The published article can be read online by clicking here.

I would also like to share the final draft of the article that I sent to BACP. This article was changed by the magazine for space, readability etc but thought it may be helpful to share my own version, which was a bit longer, more in-depth and personal. You can access this article by clicking here.

I have also taken part in an online interview to discuss this topic further. You will need to be a member of Onlinevents to access the library for the recording but I highly recommend joining the service as there are hundreds of valuable interviews and resources with all types of people. More information can be found here.

Further Reading

Some really great articles on a similar topic can be found here:

Can you be integrative and a person-centered therapist at the same time? Arthur C. Bohart

Can I use techniques and still be Person-Centred? - David Murphy

Psychotherapy, Ontology and Therapist positioning - Why simplistic integrationist approaches dont work - David Murphy

Principled and instrumental nondirectiveness in person-centered and client-centered therapy - Barry Grant

I also thought it may be useful to post a link to the book I referenced in the article which I have found an indispensable learning tool, which covers so many areas and from a great writer:

Practicing Client-Centered Therapy: Selected Writings of Barbara Temaner Brodley.
