I carried out a pre-discussion stage with the person to establish a level of comfort and cooperation. Once I realized that the coachee was more open to discussing potential options for the goal of the coaching session. The session took place in stages once the coachee was ready. The key stages in the session were the agreed objectives Feelings A related skill to effective communication is that of questioning, for instance, using open-ended questions, to use intense and insightful questions to challenge clarity, discovery or learn more about the client, use questions that will enable the client to advance toward desired goals. Coaches should examine their experiences, by looking for meaning when asking ‘why’ questions (Denison, 2007).
Ethically, it is the integrity, competence, social responsibility, and refinement of moral practice by continuing education. The counselor must provide services where the counselor constantly strives to become better in their profession by continual learning, growing, and develop skilled, ethical judgment to provide the highest level of care that exceeds the client's expectations. Continuing education, conducting research, or involving one’s self in multicultural groups or opportunities to learn about other cultures is a way to continue to grow and best serve multicultural
Collaborating with Fellow Professionals As a mental health counselor, a vital role as a professional in this career is to provide therapeutic services to individuals in need. We will be helping mediums to several diverse populations, including cultures, sexualities, and religions. We should go into each session with an open mind and heart, seeking clarity while listening to clients and strive to come up with goals for their personal growth, bearing in mind the ethical and moral values we have learned. Through the years, the counseling identity has been looked at through blurred lines. We are constantly trying to figure out where we belong amongst a world full of social workers and psychologists.

EYPs work in partnership with families and professionals in order to safeguard the child and maintain their health and safety at all times. It is important for EYPs to develop professional relationships with parents/carers while the child is in their care; EYPs must organise times to communicate with the parents/carers about the child’s development or any concerns they may have. It can sometimes be difficult for EYPs to communicate with the child’s main primary caregiver as there may be barriers such as: work timings, language barriers and busy times at nursery. It is important that EYPs try to overcome these barriers in order to meet the needs of the child and maintain their safety and well-being. In a child’s early years it is important that the early years setting mirrors the child’s home and home routine in order to make the child feel comfortable and safe.
Breuggemann (2013) discusses the Social Administration as being an important role because it is necessary to have such a position, because they are responsible in creating a positive organization in which they engage in leadership and management models. At Aspiranet the individual that carries such responsibility would be the Family Case Manager (FCM) Supervisor, and the Clinical Supervisor. Both the FCM Supervisor and Clinical Supervisor are responsible for family case managers and clinicians and ensure that they are completing their task and oversee their case load, they both also makes it a point to be available for her employee’s in order to provide support. The FCM and clinical Supervisor presents themselves professionally, transparent and is helpful and compassionate with their team. The FMC and Clinical Supervisor provides social benefit and works hard to straighten and empower the client and their family but also to their team members under her supervision.
The second technique/intervention that I wish to integrate into my counseling style is Scaling. Scaling is a good approach at providing the client with a visual of how attainable a certain task, goal, or objective is. More importantly, it helps the counselor hear the client’s mindset in achieving that goal/objective. Nevertheless, Scaling helps both the client and the professional have a visual of how much the client has improved since the start of treatment, what the client improved on, and the client’s thoughts on the improvement.
The Code of Ethics begins with a promotion to service and advocacy for all of our community members. Exhibiting good citizenship is a key factor in representing a solid moral code. Standard 1 (2015) elaborates on how Marriage and Family Therapists are to treat individuals in an equal and respectful manner negating our own beliefs, preconceptions, or memberships negating discrimination of any kind. Individuals must be informed of their therapeutic process and treatment. Clients also have a right to or deny consent prior to services through contractual agreements, promoting a client’s opportunity to make well informed, autonomous decisions throughout the sessions regarding both the risks and benefits of treatment, including disclosure.
This strategy attempts to find common ground with the client through discussion and active listening (Kensit, 2000). Moreover, for the counselor to be genuine and hold unconditional positive regard for the client, they have to be nonjudgmental, sympathetic, and empathetic towards their client, no matter how their worldviews differ (Kensit, 2000). Rational emotive behavior therapy (REBT), takes on a different form using a philosophical bend to address the cognitive and behavioral issues of the client (Johnson, Nielsen, & Ridley, 2000). In the counseling sessions, the client and counselor typically focus on a set of problem and create therapeutic goals based on the client’s values (Johnson, Nielsen, & Ridley, 2000). After these problem areas have been address the counselor would then be interested in evaluating the core beliefs of the client and determine if they are causing more deep rooted problem areas (Johnson, Nielsen, & Ridley,
