- An article in the Guardian, A quick fix for the soul, by Darian Leader (review of his most recent book over here).
- A response, A quick fix for the soul or slow milking of the cash cow, by Vaughan Bell.
- I also loved the IoP postcast, Does counselling [in the general sense] screw you up?, from 2000. Listen out for the service-user’s great rant about therapy.
I think you can get the gist of the two main arguments from Vaughan’s title, if you don’t want to read the articles.
