According to the article “What is Mental Illness,” mental health is foundation for thinking, communication, learning, self esteem, and it also plays a key role in close relationships. Sadly people with mental illness suffer with thinking skills, learning new things, expressing emotion, and it also causes problems in their social lives, but this does not mean that people with disorders can’t manage their lives on their own.
Even though people might be battling the same disorders they aren't always predictable. Some people handle situations differently and that is exactly where researching is necessary. My goals are to be able conduct as much research as I possibly can so that I can find a solution to everyone's problem. Researching plays a major role because it helps psychologist understand how people think and behave, which then helps determine which psychological disorder they do have. It also play an important role when finding not just effective but appropriate treatments for all our patients.
“Anything that has meaning to a person can be viewed as a cultural resource”. (McLeod, J. 2015). As a novice counsellor I have personally encountered the difficulties of encouraging clients to access their own cultural resources, mainly due to them viewing me as the expert and them being unaware of the fact that they can have agency and their own preferences within the counselling relationship. Another difficulty to overcome is to help the client realise that they can have access to these resources, but have not been in a frame of mind which would enable this, due to their specific issues in daily life.
Based on my signature themes, I have the strength of analyzing information presented to me. I have described this theme as overthinking because whenever I listen to someone my brain presents many ideas of how to resolve this problem based on everything the person told me.

This theme allows me to present the client with a warm environment which is important to create a healthy relationship. In group counseling, this characteristic is important since every client should feel welcome into the discussion.
However, I was also able to identify my weaknesses in reflection-on-action. Currently, I will write notes down directly on my lesson plans. I may write that a certain strategy worked well in helping students understand a concept, or I may write down what I added into my lesson last minute to make it more engaging. What is missing from my reflections though is a systematic approach and questioning why I did something, or how something came to be. In order for my reflections to be more meaningful, I need to find a formal systematic way to keep my notes on lessons.
This therapy therapist help the individual understand their own wrong thinking and doing, which can sometimes change the way they think.

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
The point after all of doing the responsibility and caring relationship of counseling is to maximize the services we offer while maintaining ourselves. Being Guidance Counselors/ Facilitator are not super heroes that can solve other’s problems immediately, however as we extent effort in trying to accomplish our desire to help, their will be a big challenge on our profession.

Chapter 1 THE PROBLEM AND ITS BACKGROUND Introduction Educators are the one who facilitate and guide the students, Educators has their different approach in teaching but their approach should be suited to the subject that they taught.
