Ladislav Timulak is course director of the Doctorate in Counselling Psychology at Trinity College, Dublin. He previously worked at the University of Trnava, Slovakia, and has extensive research and practical experience in the field of counselling and psychotherapy, as well as experience in conducting psychotherapy and counselling psychology training.
"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."
