The philosophy that people are fundamentally good, and that eventually the individual knows what is right for them, is the crucial ingredient of making person-centered therapy successful. The three qualities that are highlighted in person centered therapy such as being congruent; having unconditional positive regard and having empathetic understanding are all beneficial. However, these three factors alone are not necessarily enough to promote lasting change in clients. Since person centered therapy is about the client helping himself and wanting to make a change, at times therapist have to tune in to the frequency of the client and carry out sessions according to every individual client. Some clients might require more time to express themselves, some might not want to talk about their problems until a few sessions are over and some might already know what their problem is and they just want someone to listen to them.
Some clients cannot express well their feelings or the sharing out the privacy information. So, this therapy could be use on these types of the client because this counseling skill does not generally pay attention to the experiencing catharsis. It can change
Besides of those basic assumptions, therapies of solution-focused therapy also act in accordance to all social work values, especially empowerment and individualization. According to Healy (2014), solution-focused therapy adopts a hopeful and optimistic attitude towards client. Since it emphasize on client’s strength, resources and ability, solution-focused therapy avoids considering clients as incompetent for achieving improvement. As it mentioned above, this therapy does not see clients as a pathological person, this can help client gain greater control over their lives, and for client, this will also help them to see themselves from a new angle. By adopting strength perspective, the value of empowerment is achieved.
As a counselor it can be hard to be empathetic to someone when you are in a situation where you need empathy yourself. In moments like that where they could be a an obvious struggle to maintain an effectiveness as a counselor the text never looks at just removing yourself from sessions for a while, in fact it discusses the opposite. Dealing with your own personal problems can sometimes lead to being late and missing sessions. I didn't understand how robotic in nature the article wanted counselors to be, total disregard for the counselor in aspect of their feelings an what was needed to be effective. I felt that instead of the author providing a guide for counselors to
In society today, Counsellors, Psychotherapist and Psychologist are persons who are looked upon as having prestige, status and respect. This is due to their ability to help clients understand and clarify their views of their life-space, learn to reach their self-determined goals and their ability to empower them in the process through counselling. Defined by Burks and Stefflre, 1979. Counselling denotes a professional relationship between a trained counsellor and a client.

Unlike the CBT, psychodynamic therapy sessions are based on a process of free associations whether the formal learning process. The cognitive-behavioral approach is a short-term treatment, which allowed the researchers to gather volumes of data. According to (Hollon & Beck, 1994) current has proved to be very effective for treating depression. The strong point of the approach is that it is focused on the human thoughts, which are responsible for many of our accomplishments, thus making them also be responsible for some of our problems. The disadvantage, however, is that the approach is limited to thinking and it is only one of the ongoing processes of the human
We all have that undeveloped part of our mind that raises questions of taking part in different pleasures. The superego represents the concept of our inner conscience, which is also termed as our moral compass. This is often developed through our particular experiences in our social setting and therefore, brings in the social element. The ego provides rationality to human decision making in this case, and essentially describes what is “self” in other methodologies such as Jung’s theory of archetypes (Freud, 2011). Although we have different concepts present on personality, I still believe the original concept of Freud as having different parts of human nature conflicting with each other, has the capacity to explain personality development and its rational
It's not always the case such as in adults who present with more disturbing issues, but the point is that helpers may not absolutely need to be an "expert therapist" in order for others (generally speaking and in general situations) to reap benefits of personal interaction in dealing with general life issues. Certain types of theories and those used in many forms of counselling state and believe that humans have the capacity for self-healing with general problems or issues in life.
