We use the term ‘art’ here, to encompass all aspects of professional thinking, including decision-making, judging and choice-making and also to reflect the fact that psychologists’ reasoning abilities depend just as much on creative design as they do on analysis and evaluation. As our decisions depend, at least in part, on the ways in which we each approach the task of reasoning we invite you first to reflect on how you address the types of puzzles that confront you in your day-to-day practice, including times when effective judgements came easily and occasions when they seemed to elude you.

Duerzen-Smith (1990), for example, has argued that psychology has traditionally organized itself around discovering objective facts rather than exploring what it means to be human, with all the dilemmas and choices that this entails. For her, ­psychology needs to embrace more fully its artistic and dialogic dimensions over and above what she sees as its preoccupation with overly narrow scientific ­principles. As a discipline strongly connected with humanistic values and ­principles, counselling psychology argues for a scientist–practitioner model that is ­practice-led, ­phenomenologically-focused, respectful of diversity and interested in the uncovering of subjective truths (Woolfe and Dryden, 1996).

In contrast to the Institute of Psychiatry’s model of rigorous empiricism, psychologists began to embrace approaches to intervention that were more traditionally psychotherapeutic in orientation.
