Be able to initiate and establish a relationship using counselling skills 1. Be able to evaluate own development of counselling skills P1-describe processes for initiating, maintaining, developing and concluding a counselling relationship At times in people?s lives, they may experience emotional distress and pain from various factors: life changes, divorce, redundancy or bereavement. This may cause a struggle on how to find a solution, to make sense of things, or to find a way forward. Counselling may help the individual make sense of things because counselling means talking with an unbiased listener in a confidential, non-judgmental, supportive and respectful environment. Counselling is also a process with a beginning, middle and an end (initiating, maintaining and concluding), where the counsellor helps an individual to consider the aspects of their life they wish to change. This is to enable the client to explore a difficult or distressing situation that they may be experiencing, with support by the counsellor whose main role is to assist the client to make his or her own decisions on how to proceed. Through this process, the counsellor will attempt to guide the client from feeling a victim of circumstances to feeling that they have more control over their life. ...read more.

Improved sexual relationship 5. Greater awareness of your partner?s needs 6. Reduced jealousy 7. Increased confidence (Ref: http://www.tavistockcentreforcouplerelationships.org/dynamicdata/Counselling.aspx?parentid=2) Service 3: The Cancer Counselling Trust The Cancer Counselling Trust provide in person and telephone counselling for cancer patients, their families, friends and care givers who seek counselling to help them through the difficult issues precipitated by a cancer diagnosis. The Counselling Trust psychotherapists and counsellors have had specialist training and are experienced in working with people affected by cancer who may be couples, families and children. The Cancer Counselling Trust provides face-to-face counselling for anyone able to travel to Islington. Each client is offered up to nine 50-minute sessions with the same counsellor. The therapists and counsellors are registered with the UK Council of Psychotherapy (UKCP) or the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and subscribe to the BACP Code of Ethics and Standards. The Cancer Counselling Trust has helped them to deal better with their emotional issues, and to gain support both from better communication with health professionals and more satisfactory interpersonal relationships with their families and friends. M1: integrate processes for initiating, maintaining, developing and concluding a counselling skills relationship Maintaining For counsellors to help, the client needs to be able to tell their story and get some guidance because they cannot get their heads round a particular problem, they are confused about particular issues, or they do not have all the pieces for the full picture. Counsellors help clients to clarify the issues therefore enabling them to progress to the next stage the session. ...read more.

Conclusion

In some situations the client?s rights may interact with the rights of others. For example, the counsellor may discover that the female client is having an affair and that her marriage is disintegrating. The client may suggest that she sees a Relationship marriage guidance counsellor. If she refuses, the counsellor may be tempted to tell her husband about the affair on the grounds that he has rights in this matter. This would be a mistake, since it is not a matter of life and death and you cannot be reasonably certain that intervention would do more good than harm. On the other hand, example: if a counsellor had reason to believe that the client was abusing her baby and would not seek professional help, the counsellor may well consider it essential to inform Social Services. If this is done the counsellor should also inform the client of the decision. Even when the counselling relationship is at its worst it should still be based upon honesty and respect. Counsellors rights: example: If a counsellor believes that a client should seek medical advice and he/she refuses, the counsellor needs to ask why the refusal. It may be that the client has become neurotically dependent or exploiting the counsellor. If the counsellor believes this to be the case, the counsellor needs to terminate the counselling relationship, explaining as clearly as they can as to why. The counsellor is not a professional psychotherapist, and no-one will expect the counsellor to try to perform long-term therapy with a mentally disturbed client.
