One way that therapists help clients is by helping them form new figure-ground relationships in order for the individual to be aware of their self and their environment, and live in the present moment with awareness (Jones-Smith, 2012). Another major concept of this therapy is focusing on the “here-and-now,” which deals with a current problem that the client is facing and let the client figure ou... ... middle of paper ... ...nal when communicating with others or when expressing himself, he believed that being logical will help him in all of the situations he is dealing with. In this stage, I was able to help Joshua realize that he needs both of his polarities are important to his total personality. After he finished discussing both of his polarities, he seemed more relaxed than before we began the therapy session. I let Joshua know that the session was over and thanked him for his time.
I believe therapeutic goals are attainable because therapists allow the client to lead the discussion and do not try to steer the client in a particular direction. I think therapeutic goals are realistic because the therapist accepts the client for who they are and displays support and care no matter what the client is facing or experiencing. Also, if the therapists shares his or her feelings honestly, it can help teach the client to also develop important skills. I believe the person-centered therapy helps to increase self-esteem, more self-understanding, less guilt, and insecurity, and more positive and comfortable relationships with others. I believe the main goal of the person-centered therapy is for the client to realize their capacity for
Phase one is clarifying their assumptions about the world by examining their morals, values, and beliefs. During phase two clients are encouraged to engage in self-exploration that could lead to new attitudes and values. The final phase focuses on helping the client with the information they have learned about themselves and put them into action (Corey, 2013, p. 158). The existential the client initiates the conversation there is no reason not to explore that path. Behavior therapy is used to treat a wide variety of disorders such as anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, substance abuse, and sexual issues and disorders (Corey, 2013, p. 247).
As a professional in a helping role, I know the value of Rogers’s Theory as it applies to helping individuals make changes in their lives. Individuals know themselves best, and if they are seeking help, it is very important for the helper to get to know that person. The process of sharing or exchanging information, however, is only successful if the client feels comfortable enough to reveal intimate details about themselves. The helper facilitates that process by being present, attentive, empathetic, genuinely interested, and non-judgmental. People need to feel safe in order to reveal sensitive information, and it is the helper’s role to create such an environment that will promote exploration and ultimately an increased sense of health.
It makes sense that a change in a clients negative relationship patterns would allow freedom for the client to express themselves emotionally. According to Strupp (1971), “The client, therefore, is not a patient who is sick and who is in need o... ... middle of paper ... ...t's problems. Instead, it should permit the client to feel that she has support to dive into emotions she might have been afraid to do so before entering client centered therapy. It is interesting to note according to Raskin et al. ( 2011), “Our basic practice [client centered therapy] remains true to the core conditions no matter who our client may be.
For example, Person-Centered therapy influences my belief of how individuals view their world and process events in their life.

Clients need the opportunity to tell their story without judgment in order to work through the problems in their lives. Additionally, Person-centered counseling allows the client to be self-directive in therapy; therefore, allowing the client to “tap-into” their own strengths and coping skills (Smith, 2012). Furthermore, Gestalt therapy aides the client in integrating parts of themselves and resolving unfinished business that could be contributing to current problems (Smith, 2012).
To have good results Carl Roger believed that the therapist should be comprehensive, authentic, and warm. As a future therapist, I consider that I would like to use this therapy because it would show the client my empathetic side, which will bring better results. It shows the client that they are not alone in the situation and will be more willing to open up. Also, I consider that a councilor can better help the client to come up with the best solution possible to the situation if they are non-judgmental and understand the client’s perspective. I consider the best technique for this therapy is Motivational interviewing because it is a non-judgmental and non-confrontational therapy that attempts to make the client more aware of the potential caused problems experienced consequences and risks they may face as a result of the conduct in question.
Your feelings, thoughts and beliefs are based on you as a person to help better your everyday life and fix problems. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy states that reactions to events and the things we tell ourselves about the events are within our control, that affects our quality of life. And this is a wonderful thing because it states that we are in control of our lives and its outcomes. Especially for the type of clients I have been working with, that have had problems with substance abuse. Helping them understand that they are in control of their outcomes by changing their thought process have worked exceptionally well for some.
Adler believes that emotions and behaviors are largely influenced by ones beliefs and thinking processes. I want my clients to understand that they are entirely responsible for what they make of themselves.

The Reality Theory understands the importance of a positive, satisfying therapist-client relationship. The therapist should be caring, mildly confrontational, yet not critical, blaming, or complaining.
Introduction Cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) emphasizes the importance of thoughts on producing behaviors. The fundamental principle of CBT is for counselors to assist clients in changing their negative thought patterns and recreate these into positive self-enhancing thoughts. The therapeutic relationship is grounded on collaboration between the counselor and the client. The counselor plays an active role but relies on the client to make changes. Together, the counselor and client will develop realistic goals that are achievable within an appropriate amount of time (Corey, 2017).
