Example text

She told me I should be more assertive. You: And did that help? Client: Yes and no, really. I mean, it helped in a way, to have someone interested in me, but it wasn’t that easy for me. I mean, I couldn’t just go out and be assertive. You: And so, what happened? Did you stop seeing her? Client: Yes. I meant to get in touch with her again, but I couldn’t see how it would help. What do we learn from this kind of dialogue? First, that our client has had a ‘bad time’ before, in life and perhaps in a helping situation too.

I be pressurized into doing things I don’t want to? my friends think I’m crazy? I find out things I don’t want to know? I lose control of myself? , 1985. See also Feltham and Lambert, 2006) It is very evident that clients fantasize about what their counselling and counsellor will be like, what the setting will be like, and how they (the clients) will handle, or fail to handle, their anxiety. Anxieties are sometimes elicited by certain settings (such as psychiatric hospitals) or by certain professionals and their status and power.

One of the problems of our field is that rigid adherence to one’s original training orientation can sometimes overshadow clients’ needs. While this problem waits to be addressed at a macro-level, we suggest that you consider what your own stance is to be vis a` vis the setting in which you work and the clients you tend to see. You may or may not conduct an initial assessment of your clients but you always have a responsibility to make a conscious decision as to whether counselling, and counselling with you, is the best option for each client.
