Sample text

We need also to carefully consider the role aspect of being a counsellor. Clients who invite their counsellors to a sexual relationship may be simply repeating entrenched patterns of behaviour which have little to do with the counsellor’s individuality. In other words, they might be attracted to people who are in positions of perceived authority. They may confuse the pleasure of being carefully listened to with love. They may have never had a close relationship which did not include sex. In such a circumstance, to accept the invitation is to deny the client the opportunity to develop insight into his/her behaviours, and to preclude the possibility of change.

Review such emotional arousal with your supervisor. Anxiety Whether novice or experienced counsellor, we would hazard a guess that you will have suffered low-level anxiety or something approaching panic from time to time in regard to certain clients. No matter how long you have been counselling there will be times in your life when your confidence deserts you and when those creeping ‘selfdoubts’ allow the demon anxiety to get you. ’, ‘I know I’ll get it all wrong’, ‘I can’t concentrate, I’ll forget what they’ve said, I’m sure I’ll blow it’.

This would mean you are interrogating. It suggests that you have neglected to reflect back the content of the answer to your first question, or the second question had to be asked because your first one was poorly constructed. Consider asking no questions at all! Or at least for periods of time, perhaps up to 15 minutes. This will help you to concentrate on thorough listening to the client’s agenda and to switch off yours, invariably strengthening your empathic skills. We often employ this tactic in counselling training programmes to demonstrate how questions can destroy effective, non-directive listening.
