Personal counselling is one of the highest and most intimate uses of astrology. The client is in many ways at the mercy of the astrologer. Therefore, the astrologer’s attitudes, words, and actions all take on a high level of significance.
In this book, Evan Bortnick covers in detail the various facets of personal counselling, from preparing for the consultation to interacting with the client. He explains topics such as establishing rapport, dealing with defence mechanisms, creative listening, and more, all in the context of a specifically astrological consultation.
This is an excellent reference for any astrologer (or anyone else!) engaged in personal counselling. It is required for the “Exploring Counselling Strategies” course.
