A therapist plays a passive but very important role in order to make the therapy work. The therapist needs to see that the therapy goes in the correct direction and that the client can achieve the goals easily, effectively and in a way that gives the client maximum benefit. While active listening is one of the most vital practices in a client-centered therapy, there are many roles and suggestions for client-centered therapists that they should keep in mind to facilitate successful therapy sessions. Following are some definite roles that a therapist must carry out:- • Genuine empathy – This refers to the therapist’s ability to see and understand issues and situations from the client’s perspective. When the therapist is able to show an empathetic understanding of what the client is experiencing, it helps the client have a better inner understanding as well.
Being able to make themselves available is a huge part of mentorship. The mentor needs to find times, days, and locations in which they are able to meet with the mentee. If they cannot be present for the mentee then there is no relationship being made and therefore no mentoring is taking place. Honesty is a huge factor when it comes to mentorship, hence why it is a responsibility of the mentor. As mentioned above, the mentor needs to be honest and give the tough feedback so that you can learn off of your mistakes and gain more knowledge from your mentor who has more experience than
Education level of professional may not be as critical determination of effectiveness in using MET. But the specific training in MET is necessary. A skilled MET practitioner can make the therapy more natural but it requires considerable pratice. A MET practitioner is also given 2 to 3 days training to learn the rationale of MET and its very skills. Counselors who are new to this approach may face difficulty initially (M.R.William, 2000).
Rogers suggested three core conditions for this therapy to work effectively. One, the therapist takes a passive role and gives the client’s thoughts and behaviour the top priority knows as congruence/genuinely. For example, Sara would get a place where her experiences, feelings, thoughts and real self will be given the top priority unlike other psychodynamic therapy. Second, known as unconditional positive regard, a complete and almost absolute acceptance of most of client’s feelings and actions making as few interpretations as possible. For example, Sara would not have to become this ideal self as the therapist will accept her real self or her feeling, choices without any condition of worth.
Royal (2016) states, although Health Service Managers do not implement direct patient care, they are intricately a part of providing quality patient care through the process of the healthcare delivery system (p. 203). Mental Health Counselors are responsible for a caring environment for their client’s. Rosenthal (2005) believes a good Mental Health Counselor should build an outstanding foundation for their clients as well as one’s practice, by networking to provide
Which means that the therapist does not have façade (like psychoanalysis).The therapist’s interior and outer experience are one in the same. In short, the therapist is authentic. Therapist need to provide the client with unconditional positive regard (Saul McLeod 2015). The therapist needs an attitude of "I 'll accept you as you seem to be." So, therapist must always careful and maintain a positive attitude to the client.
Key issues, problems and areas of focus in Counselling • Counselling should be a voluntary process: Counselling as a process will be effective only when the clients are co-participants in the process rather than passive recipients of counsellor interventions. The counsellor should act as a facilitator and not force the client to take part in the process. Hence, the person deemed to be seeking help must be willing to engage. • Status of relationship counselling: Couples counselling has one of the lowest ratings in terms of customer satisfaction.
For many therapists, being yourself in a therapeutic session might be difficult to achieve because of external influences, professionalism and safety reasons, but for me it is a matter of trust. Hierarchically first, by being human and then a mental health professional, you set the basis for a trustful and meaningful conversation where the client can feel safe and discuss progressively problems that “nobody wants to hear”. I truly believe, that there are many things in life that you can achieve without pre-established techniques, one of these may be to achieve self-growth conditions through Person Centered Therapy. Humanistic approach for me is a way of life and a way of
However, this situation could be daunting. It would take a counselor with patience and persistence. This method of treatment is interesting because it utilizes meekness and understanding instead of confrontation to change how the client views the counselor or himself or herself (McMinn, 2011). The most interesting point is how the bible can be the book to provide help for all of life’s problems, concerns, and how it can be used as a life manual to guide the client in the ways he or she needs to go, or solutions to life’s problems.
He or she must also be caring. A friend must care for you. He or she should always take into consideration your feelings. The third important quality of a friend is to be nonjudgmental. A friend loves you for you, and a person should not have to change for anyone else.
I showed the client the respect that they deserved. During the role play, I did not self-disclose any information. This could have sabotaged the counseling process. As a counselor, I welcome growth. One thing that surprised me about the process was how much I would learn during residency.
