Discuss how counselling uses an inter-disciplinary approach to helping with examples. “Counseling is a professional relationship that empowers diverse individuals, families, and groups to accomplish mental health, wellness, education, and career goals” (American Counselling Association 2010).

Become more aware so I can provide empathy, be genuine, and accept them where they are. As a counselor I want to always provide true unbiased feeling to my clients. Congruence, unconditional positive regard, and empathic understanding are the three core conditions of the person-centered approach to psychotherapy.

Personal counselling is more likely than psychotherapy to include para-professionals (such as “pastoral counsellors”), volunteers (such as “Lifeline” counsellors), as well as those whose practices are formally linked to occupational roles (such as employment counsellors) or to responses to a particular class of events (such as grief counsellors). • Views of clients: Those identifying as psychotherapists tend to conceptualise their clients as individuals with psychological disorders or with problems in psychological functioning whereas personal counsellors’ view their clients as functioning individuals who are experiencing difficulties in operating within the circumstances or social contexts in which they find themselves. • Effectiveness: Counselling agencies are thought to be more effective when they are embedded within their communities.

Therefore, the use of active listening, positive unconditional regard, empathic understanding as well as being mindful seems to be easier for me. Interestingly, others share and open up to me rather quickly that enables me to differentiate between the individual’s and my worldview.
