The first one is the fact that people cannot be think as separate from their relationships. Since relationships are one of the core factors in our life, it would be inevitable to be effected by them in different ways. The way we chose to deal with these relationships may be maladaptive and we need to learn a better way of dealing. PIT enables the therapist and patient to work on the present feelings and thoughts, which may arise in current therapeutic relationship. Even if these feelings and thoughts appears in the therapy sessions, they are also patterns of thinking and feeling in real life settings.
Therapist who practice this approach are trained to define, identify, and understand multicultural issues in order to treat clients. When a professional counselor works with a client from a different cultural background, the counselor needs to define differences such as religion, gender, family, history, and sexual orientation between client and counselor. In addition, identifying differences require techniques including body language, eye contact, and open ended questions. In some cultures directness is considered impolite (Delaware University, 2014). Acknowledging and considering these differences is essential to establishing a trusting therapeutic relationship.
In existential therapy, therapists are mainly concerned with " understanding the subjective world of clients to help them come to new understandings and options." (Corey, 2009, p. 148). Helping clients accept the responsibility of their own lives allows them to move from emotional angst and self-deception, toward the joy of achieving personal potential (Corey, 2009). The therapist acts as a mirror, of sorts, to reflect some of the self-imposed constrictions and limitations preventing the client from further growth. Most existential therapists use a variety of loosely stated techniques with
I have grown to understand that my values are a result of my experiences and people in my life and therefore aim to surround myself with people that will influence me positively. My family have always taught me to stay strong in what I believe in and encourage me to be open and honest. They have impacted the way I respond to my experiences as I always receive advice and support from them. I feel a basic responsibility to honour and respect the people in my life.

Duffy and Chenail (2008) stated when using a research approach in counseling, the counselor needs to make sure they understand the value and the purpose of the research study. The research needs to be appropriate to the client needs. Therefore, the counselor should be aware of the role and the responsibilities when using research for their client that they might not be any biases or cultural sensitive towards the client, if the counselor does not feel comfortable using the research the counselor can also reference “The Code of Ethics of the American Counseling Association”. Sherpis and Daniels (2017) specified when a counselor is conducting a research study or using a research they should consider the dignity and welfare of the client. The counselor needs to make sure to respect clients at all times.
How do your ethics and values influence how you model the way in your professional and personal life? My ethics and values decide and direct everything in my life.

Firstly, I chose Values, Ethics and nursing practice because it is so important. As much as I stated above there is a lot of grey area it is so important to know your own values and to know what is important to you and to others. Values and ethics play a big role in client care because you may not agree with what a client chooses, for example assisted suicide. It’s not up to you to decide what is right for a client and you have to put your own values and beliefs aside to provide the best client care. You must be able to fully understand your own values and beliefs to be able to understand others.
As long as human are in existence there will always be a need for a counsellor or a social worker.

As we have discussed Stephanie’s heritage, we have seen the impact a person’s cultural heritage can have on them as a counselor. As we have discussed, it’s important for the therapist to have self awareness about not only their cultural heritage, but also areas they are prone to privilege and also discrimination, as both of these can lead to barriers in the therapeutic alliance. As counselors work on becoming culturally competent counselors they will want to reflect on their own bias, assumptions, and stereotypes, gain knowledge about various cultures, and utilize this information in a way that will make them culturally competent counselors.
Authors Pompeo and Levitt (2014) define self-reflection as the conscious decision that which an individual acknowledges and evaluates their actions. Thus, these said actions could include being forthcoming about the intentions and motives that are considered personal benefits. In addition, the center of self-reflection consists of the individual’s emotions, thoughts, and feelings. Universally goals that counselors should incorporate in conjunction with adhering to self-reflection include conscious awareness, thoughts, and feelings (Pompeo & Levitt, 2014). Both self-reflection and self-awareness are routine developments that are utilized to assist counselors with becoming proficient in cultural practices.
