are all well documented. The prior knowledge of these resources by the client should be valued as having an active and effective role in therapy. From a pluralistic perspective we have to take into consideration the expertise and prior knowledge of the client. The field of counselling often acknowledges that clients play a central role in
Self actualisation is another strength to this form of therapy as it “helps the client to fully concentrate on themselves and guide in decision making for growth and develop into an honest, selfless and independent person” according to Mearns (1994). This helps the client to have autonomy, gives them self growth and self acceptance and all of which I feel are necessary for Gloria. Rogers strives on having a good relationship between the client and therapist whereas Ellis believes that this is not necessary for effective counselling session or for personality change. However, the negative side to person-centred counselling could be that the client is not challenged by anyone as the therapist does not give opinions or suggestions. There is no structure to the therapy session and therefore it relies on the client to be heavily involved in the counselling session and this maybe too optimistic for some clients as they are not getting answers, so they may find it hard to progress.
This gives one a sense of hope; a common feeling for the human condition that they are “on the same boat”. This is the most important aspect of any group counseling, for the clients to know that they are not alone. Specifically, group therapy is a instrumental in mending all passionate and mental battles individuals experience: despondency, nervousness, annoyance, apprehension, disgrace, and so forth. People expand fearlessness through uncovering their inner part lives to others. Parts feel less alone on the planet through understanding other individuals' lives.
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). Counselling is a process of engagement of two people one who is professionally trained to help and the other is the seeker of help, to identify the solution of the problem underlying through purposeful conversations. Counsellor does not give advices or control his/her clients rather helps them to think more broadly about the issues in a free environment. It works on the principle of choices and unconditional positive support.
Perspective and Summary Perspective The above research conclusions support the following perspective regarding counselling clients with substance abuse problems. Counsellors, to be effective, first must have the ability to develop an open, collaborative relationship with clients wherein clients perceive trust and commitment. Carl Rogers identifies, and research supports, this ability as related to the counsellor’s skill in conveying, in interaction with clients, unconditional positive regard and empathic understanding (Austin, 1999). Within this relationship, the counsellor must provide focus for the process by addressing the client's presenting problems directly and identifying client need for change. Counsellors of clients with substance abuse problems often find this process difficult because of the chronic nature of interrelated destructive
However, there were contrary findings where there was no relationship between the role of perceived public stigma towards mental illness and seeking professional help (Brown et al., 2010; Golberstein, Eisenberg, Gollust, 2008; Komiti, Judd, & Jackson, 2006; Rüsch et al., 2009). In addition, it is expected that individuals would hide their psychological distress and avoid from seeking help to protect themselves from being stigmatized (Angermeyer & Dietrich, 2006; Cook, Purdie-Vaughns, Meyer, & Busch, 2014; Corrigan & Matthews, 2003; Loya, Reddy, & Hinshaw, 2010). Although, there are studies support public stigma towards mental illness as a barrier to help-seeking, however, lack of research with similar findings are found for perceived public stigma. Therefore, it may be deduced that the perceived public stigma in relation to mental illness and help-seeking could act as a barrier for mental health professionals to seek psychological
Counselling and psychotherapy are essentially used to describe the same process of overcoming personal difficulties and work towards a positive change in one’s life. The early definition of counselling was more to do with legal advice side of things, such as offering legal advice or to seek legal counsel, but over the centuries that meaning evolved toward the more therapy based counselling. The next few paragraphs will include some of the historic origins of both counselling and psychotherapy and the potential similarities and differences between them, as most of the time there’s a potential confusion around these terms; some of the parallel concepts, such as pastoral support and the modern aspect of counselling and psychotherapy, from the
It is also very important to be able to know when you need to seek any sort of help because even though people really try to tough it out, going through their emotions and venting to someone is very beneficial. If someone is going through a really tough time do not judge them or try to belittle them. They might be going through something deeper than what the surface

I will try to describe three of the counselling group separately and share what I can learn from the group. The first group is held by the experienced counsellor whereas the second and third group are held by my classmates. However, I believed that I can learn from all the group, no matter the leading skills or the content of the group. I enjoy being a group member within the counselling group because I can hear the sharing from others group member and learn from other. I can observe the different between the experienced leader and normal leader, their awareness of the group member before the group is important.
