By Philip Burnard (auth.)

This is the second one variation of a e-book that i am hoping remains to be of useful price. For counselling should always be that: useful. No quantity of speaking, by itself, can particularly make a distinction if humans don't turn out doing whatever because of counselling. the sensible thread is still an immense one all through this version. Counselling abilities for healthiness pros is not only a 'how to do it' publication: everyone is most likely too advanced for that method of be of a lot use. Counselling is rarely easily a question of studying a number talents that you then follow in more than a few settings. in any case, counselling is ready dealing with the individual in entrance of you, hearing them rigorously after which assisting them as they paintings via their difficulties. for lots of difficulties, there aren't any effortless solutions and counselling does not supply any 'quick fixes'. it's basically a supportive method. there are various issues it can't do. It can't switch definite social and political events. It can't medication ailments. nevertheless, what it may well do is supply humans extra wish. usually, simply the truth that there's somone who's ready to listen to your tale and to hear you is all that's wanted. I stay confident that the most important factor in all kinds of counselling is the facility to listen.

Example text

But rarely appropriate to anticipate that it will 'do the client good' to express bottled-up feeling. More appropriately, perhaps, it should be the client who decides when and if such release of emotion occurs. The issue of emotional release and cathartic skills is discussed in greater detail in Chapter 8. There are very many situations in health care when effective use of cathartic skills is valuable. A short list would include, at least: • • • • supporting the recently bereaved person; helping the person who is adjusting to new, yet profound, disability; assisting people to cope with shock after trauma; helping the person to express their feelings after assault, rape or accident; • enabling the depressed person to release pent-up feelings of anger or self-doubt.

While counselling may not be able to halt the fact of much of life being intractable, it can help in encouraging a more positive and lifeassertive world view. In the situation where the client comes to the practitioner in a distressed and emotional state, a decision has to be made whether to distract that person and move them away from their emotional release or whether to accept the release as outlined previously. Much will depend here on what the client is asking of the counsellor. Are they asking for help to control their emotional state?

This is a process that is fundamental to counselling. As we listen to the other person, we must try to enter a theoretical approach that is different from our own in order to try to understand them. There is also a practical reason for adopting this approach. As we sit with a client, reflecting upon what they say in terms of the belief system we have about the nature of persons, so they, too, sit with their own belief system about the nature of the person. Clearly, there is no reason to suppose that the belief system that the client has, however hazy or well articulated, will correspond to our own.
