Interview with Yvonne Bates


  • Beatrice Popescu
  • Andreea Enache


Our interviewee is Yvonne Bates, a humanistic counsellor/ therapist with The Alexander Group. She co-authored with Richard House and published "Ethically Challenged Professions: Enabling innovation and diversity in psychotherapy and counselling", an anthology assembling 30 essays, most of them by prominent international figures in the field, which both challenge a number of psychotherapy and counselling’s most inhibiting, taken-for-granted assumptions, and offer cutting-edge visions and examples of the form and substance of an ethically mature, post-professionalized therapy practice.
