Sir David Attenborough has described Richmond Park as 'A very special place' - and with good reason. This vast oasis of green, just eight miles from the centre of London, is an ecological pearl in the midst of sprawling urbanisation. The park, most famous for its herd of 630 Fallow and Red Deer, is not only Europe's largest park, but is as big as the seven other royal parks combined. Since King Charles I enclosed the park in 1637, it has provided a haven of tranquillity and diversion for all its visitors. Today, some 2.5 million people pass through its gates each year. In this beautiful book, Alex Saberi captures Richmond Park's unique blend of rare and diverse wildlife, plant life and rolling landscapes. From a crow perching on a bench in the morning haze to a foolhardy Labrador, breaking impatiently away from its owner, the photographs capture its inherent beauty as well as those rare moments of wildlife action and majesty that only yield themselves to the most patient and knowledgeable of observers.

Filled with straightforward, practical advice, case studies and examples, Introducing Psychology of Relationships will help you understand your relationship and make it more loving and mutually supportive, as well as be better equipped for entering into a new relationship.
It is rare for a book to tackle the range of problems and difficulties counsellor training involves in such a comprehensive manner, it is rarer still for the style of writing to engage the reader as this book manages to do... I wish this book had been available when I was a student. Counselling and Psychotherapy Journal How do I get through this? is one of the questions that counselling and psychotherapy students most often ask themselves: John Karter has answered this and many other fundamental questions in his book.Undoubtedly there are many pressures upon students but the process can and should be an enjoyable. Written from a student's-eye view this book explores the professional and personal difficulties that may be encountered and offers practical advice on how to avoid problems where possible and overcome them when necessary. From start to finish, the pitfalls are highlighted in order that students can seek help when and where it is needed. The benefits and joys are also emphasized in order to show that the long and winding road does have an end and that beyond it there are new horizons.On Training to be a Therapist has been designed for use as a standard text on training courses at all levels. The book is exceptionally accessible and should sit on the bedside table of all counselling and psychotherapy students and the bookshelf of tutors and supervisors who need to remind themselves of how they may be of help to students.
