This comes from in relation to the characteristics that are established already inside the counselor. In the responsibilities that should be completed by the counselor is to inform the reflective interpretation from the counselor. Being an counselor comes more from the information that you retained as a student, but more so how you interact with people. The characteristics that a counselor should have are active listening skills, plenty of patience and encouragement. These key components can help with the retentions rate of the client showing up to sessions but also a sense of confidence the client will feel comfortable to open up about the
Before these experiences, my knowledge was limited to complex definitions and theories that I did not fully grasp. Through personal interaction and engagement, I have a deeper understanding of occupation and what it means and the role it plays in the field of Occupational Therapy. Not only did these experiences affect me individually These experiences were invaluable to me as an individual OT student – Not only do I have a deeper understanding of clients and their occupations, but my passion for occupational therapy was reborn after engaging with patients and children face-to-face. I am confident that these experiences will also impact my professional behaviour, now and in the future. These experiences have truly helped me grow, learn and develop and an Ot
Over the past one and half month, the class of PDE 502 (Counselling and Career Education) has taught me some major lessons for life in dealing with the clients in response to their emotional needs. The role of a counsellor is not unlike that of a friend where by it is nurtured by being in each other’s company, talking over everyday issues and sharing feelings. However, what sets a counsellor apart is their experience and the ability to apply counselling theories and techniques to assist people in gaining awareness, insight and explore ways of solving their own issues. The purpose of this reflection is to reflect upon the use of counselling skills, which I have applied in the role-play with the goal of establishing healthy rapport building.

I felt more relaxed myself being able to handle this situation, and being honest I wanted to follow up on her, but it was my time to transfer her to professional help. That was one of the moments where I wished to be that professional that would follow up. I envied the psychologist who got more training than me and can offer more help, so that’s why I am eager to be in your PsyD program, to have more training so I can help more. The training also helped me when I dealt with situations of residents who encountered alcohol abuse and domestic violence by their fellow roommates. Being an RA and dealing with those situations were great experience for me.
Working in different settings and meeting new people that need to be taken care of has always interested me. The job I want to have while I go to college is the very challenging role of a Medical Assistant. Due to the experiences that have happened in my life, I believe that becoming a medical assistant is the best career choice for me. There are many duties and responsibilities I will have as a medical assistant. One of the responsibilities I would have as an medical assistant is answering telephones and dealing with patients.
One way to gain a better understanding of altruism is to learn through personal and professional experiences. Because altruism is a learned value, the more experiences that one gains further instills the core value within the individual. Throughout my final semester of undergraduate studies, I was granted the opportunity to work closely with a rehabilitation staff complete with two physical therapists, an occupational therapist, a physical therapy assistant and an athletic trainer. The greatest part of the experience was the interaction with patients, this opportunity was highly effective in providing a real professional experience in patient care. This observation experience allowed me to gain a greater understanding of altruism and a realization of just how rewarding this profession
Our interview made me realize that there is an end in sight to this journey I have just begun. Speaking with Mr. Windsor reaffirmed a lot of my own beliefs as to why I have chosen to pursue a career in this profession. My last question for Mr. Windsor was what advice he would give a graduate student in the counseling program. He reminded me to keep my boundaries when it comes to stress and anxiety, and later when working with clients. He said as long as someone keeps doing the things they like and enjoy, that are non-work related, that it will be much easier to compartmentalize what we deal with in life and lead us to maintain a healthy
Initially, therapist and client have to build an equal relationship between each other, and later this relationships can become like a colleague who coaches them or somebody whose expertise and experience and understanding and knowledge they do rely on (2010, audio, excerpt 10). Therapist’s aim is to guide the client to find the direction in their life, they keep their on the goal and the purpose at all times, but allow the client to take that in charge themselves. Therapist helped him look at things in more breadth or more depth, i.e. exploring why it is they have this position or why it is it seem like this to them rather than like that to them (2010, audio, excerpt
