I was recently delighted to be invited to review Kim’s latest book, Counselling Conversations, and am pleased to share my review here with you.
“Counselling Conversations, Kim Billington’s new book, is like a community of practitioners that welcomes us, the readers, in. We are invited to participate, as witnesses, to conversations between Kim and the diverse group of counsellors and therapists that she interviews.
Kim’s own curious inquiries open up stories of people and practices that have roots in lived experience, in families, cultures and values, that are alive in their real worldness and deeply infused with wisdom.
The community that we are invited to become part of in this book, whilst colourful and diverse, shares a common territory of values, creating a place for us to connect in together. In this place, there are spaces for unconventional stories to be told, shared and witnessed, we can play and explore, experience self-determination and collective determination. Ultimately, this book is a hopeful space, a meeting place, where it is possible to be part of the change we would like to see in the world.”
