The Void: how and why people can be hurting and how they can be safely helped

ACC South West committee member Wendy Haslam has written a book, The Void, published on 17 July 2009.

The Void looks at how and why people can be hurting and how they can be safely helped. It draws on Wendy's many years of experience as a counsellor and her work within the ministry of healing. The Void uses counselling models, psychology and theology and describes the process by which one can come alongside a person in order to address and therefore facilitate healing.

It is aimed at trained counsellors open to exploring new ways to work; those hoping to train as professional counsellors; church leaders seeking to establish safe practice in their ministry; anyone involved in the ministry of healing and members of the public who may be seeking answers to why they may feel that life is 'blocked' or
uncomfortable.

The Void is available via Amazon, price £10:99
or via the author info@findacounselloronline.co.uk at £9 inc. p&p

Each year ACC organises a busy schedule of both regional and national training events and conferences, covering a wide range of issues and topics relevant to its counselling and pastoral care members and to the everyday stresses of modern life.

The Association of Christian Counsellors (ACC) is a registered charity and the leading agency representing the voice of Christian counsellors and pastoral carers in the UK. Founded in 1992, it today represents around 2,000 members and 150 affiliate organisations. ACC South West has 208 members and 12 affiliates.

ACC aims to be a catalyst for excellence through its standardisation of good practice; accreditation; the recognition of training; its journal “Accord” and its conferences.
