They needs to keep difference by eliciting the client’s verbal expression of concerns, their reasons to change and should encourage their optimism regarding change. Counselors need to be polite and positive in knowing things rather than confronting it directly. The counselor needs to emphasis on supporting the client’s self – efficacy.

I suspect as times goes on I will become better at giving feedback to clients. It’s just a matter of time, it is also important to understand that all client do not react the same way, so in a way it can be helpful to be direct, but it can also be a train of the client’s progress in treatment.

The way I view the world is hard to explain, simply because it constantly changes. Everyday is different whether you believe it or not, each day holds something new and exciting. Therefore I believe I can’t live with one set worldview because that will hold me back from so much more. My family has taught me that views can change but the person shouldn’t.

Mitchell and Krumboltz (2012) also argues that a barrier to set goals and to make satisfying choices is to have irrational believes about certain aspects such as career choices and development. Amundson (2009) suggest that clients need to identify these irrational beliefs to move past them and it is therefore important for the career counsellor to help clients identify them. According to the career decision-making theory, the primary focus of decision making and career development is learning through experiences and human interaction (Mitchell & Krumboltz, 2012). The third proposition of the happenstance theory states that it is important to focus on client behaviour (Krumboltz, 2009). “The success of counselling is assessed by what the client accomplishes in the real world outside the counselling session” (Krumboltz, 2009).
But, the job of counselors is not to impose their values, but help clients explore how their current issues are affected by their own value system. A counselor who is struggling with a client can find that the issue may have to do with value conflicts. In that instance, it is vital that the counselor seek supervision. Supervision allows counselors the ability to address their concerns and be taught ways to overcome bias and get closer to therapeutic neutrality.

The ability to determine how much of the research methodology can be disclosed without jeopardizing the validity and reliability of the data is crucial to ethical dissemination (Royse, et al., 2010). Workers need to be mindful of the fact that not all clients will fully understand the implications and motivations of those involved with a program or intervention. It is unethical to assume otherwise as there is always a risk of deceiving clients by either default or design especially when our intentions and limitations are not made clear (Royse, et al.,
