Sample text

Support from the counsellor is important, but it is also important to help our clients to develop their own support networks. We say a lot more about social networks in chapter 14. Second, our clients need to learn specific skills, which will often be different from the skills they used to take the action in the first place. Having learnt the skills to deal with a problem in the short term, many clients will also need help to deal with longer-term issues when motivation is flagging. Stage 6: ending counselling Ideally, counselling ends when our client has successfully worked through the various goals delineated with our help, taken action and maintained changes, and so is ready to move on.

Problems connected with taking action, therefore, will provide exploratory material, may cause us to revise the goals and will influence the taking of further action. A useful way of thinking about this model of counselling is to look at content versus process. • As counsellors we are not in charge of the content of counselling – to a large extent that is determined by our client and what he or she brings to the sessions. We can of course influence this, by the questions we ask and the way we respond to the sorts of things that a client says to us, but the content is primarily up to our client.

Many people, when asked for help, respond by telling (or suggesting to) the person asking for help what to do, or by telling them what we (the helper) have done in the past, or by being critical of what they have done themselves so far. It is our view that these interactions, while they may prove helpful, are not part of counselling. In the middle of the continuum of helping is the use of counselling skills. People can offer all types of help to others, but only some of this help will utilise the sorts of counselling skills that we describe in detail in the next chapter and throughout the rest of the book.
