"Developing Your Counselling and Psychotherapy Skills and Practice fills the void between books that cover basic counseling skills and those that cover specific methods in depth. For the trainee or clinician who asks 'I am sitting in front of my client, now what do I do next?', Timulak's book will provide that answer."
Paul Jerry, Psychologist & Associate Professor, Athabasca University
This is a great book with in depth ideas for developing skills.
Excellent introduction especially for students engaging with counselling training and practice for the first time -
This is an extremely useful, lucidly written book. The sections on specific situations in counselling, such as using silence and working with someone who is crying, will be very helpful to students who find these situations challenging and initimidating.
Kottler text was more comprehensive
It is a good book however, it does not resonate with the focus on person centred counselling that I do here.
A down to earth, refreshing look at counselling skills, pitched at the right level for third year undergraduate students. A good read!
This book covers really important aspects of reflective practice and will be useful both for developing skills early in training and for refelction at a more advanced level on ethical dilemmas and specific practice issues.
