Here are some quotes from the foreword Stephen wrote for my book. I’m really honored!

“How can we champion the healing potential in physiotherapy consultations, knowing that the diversity of patient presentations is enough to keep the sharpest minds challenged? People come in with such a wide range of expectations, complaints, and concerns. One answer is in getting our communication right, and this is where Vincent Kortleve’s new book stands out like a lighthouse.”

“I have not come across another like it.
It takes talent to write about experiences in everyday practice, and this book is based on many years of practice.
It takes boldness to step across into other fields like motivational interviewing and to translate useful ideas into a form that will work well in practice. Here, again, Kortleve has done just that.”

“Then there’s the matter of keeping abreast of ongoing research and what comes out of efforts to understand the physiotherapy consultation process. This book covers these insights as well.”

“This book will be of value to both the student and the experienced practitioner. There are plenty of topics to dive into and practical tips to try out, and as Kortleve repeatedly emphasizes, practice with patients will help you find an easier path through the diverse challenges faced in physiotherapy.”
