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.
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).
Ability to cope with ambiguity, broad-mindedness, endurance, cultural empathy and respect are the other necessary traits to adapt and understand the differences. These characteristics when supported with a strong sense of self which helps in interaction with the culture without losing one’s own identity.

From person-centred approach’ s view empathy is effective because it involves focussing of the client’s feelings, and this result in the client becoming aware of his ambiguous feelings, which allow him to deal with them and facilitate his agency over them (Mearns & Thorne, 2013, p64). I think I have a good level of empathy towards others, and think that I need to practice more on creating the balanced empathy between the self and the others. Thus a balanced perspective will result in best
Empathy, understanding, and unconditional acceptance of the client is the emphasis of his form of therapy. The which enhances the therapeutic outcome of the client. Additionally, there is Integrative therapy which is an effective form of therapy that addresses the behavioral, cognitive, and physiological levels of a persons functioning. Each theory provides a partial explanation of the client’s behavior “and each is enhanced when selectively integrated with other aspects of the therapist's approach”(Institute for Integrative Psychotherapy, n.d.). COUNSELING APPROACHES
Instead, associations with concepts of “help” and “growth” in areas of the self and one’s perspective are much preferred by counsellors time and time again. And, despite the varied phraseology by different practicing counsellors, the concepts of “help” and “growth” stay central, where the matter of difference may simply lie in nothing more than semantics. Hence, the aim of this paper is to explore and, as far as possible, discuss a working definition of what counselling is, and how its nature is made up of counsellor-client dynamics in the form of a therapeutic relationship and empathic communication, amongst other factors. Counselling Attempting to define what counselling is can be both difficult and fascinating. Difficult, because there has been, and still is no single agreed upon definition.

The counselor needs to promote that safe environment by promoting values and helping them flourish through respectful and meaningful exchanges through externalization of the problems. In using this model with clients this would be workable as it doesn’t change the actual client or the family it challenges and changes their beliefs and values. The counselor discovers what their roles in the family are finding out how the behaviors and ideals which are the negative aspects of the story. Clients are then taught how to remodel these negatives into more positive behaviors and thoughts which brings new viewpoints to the client and the
Teyber discusses the concept of a Working Alliance relationship and what this looks like between a client and therapist. Teyber describes this relationship as a particularly empathic way of being, listening and responding to a clients’ concerns. He explains that this relationship must begin upon the foundation of trust, and is very importantly, an equal partnership that is active but not authoritative by nature. Teyber believes that to offer therapy from an authoritarian position may create a reliance on the therapist, rather than fostering an empowerment that the client can draw from their own self. He discusses how an active Working Alliance encourages growth through the partnership, by way of responding to concerns in a thought provoking yet sensitive and empathic manner (process comments).
Individual personal theory of counseling is very important for the successes of any therapeutic process that affects how I council. Personal perspective, how the world works, belief system, the way things interact, and how they actually are form the basis of working of all individuals in life. In order to have the best decision with respect to any therapeutic process, I have to understand deeply the personal theory of individual. This is believed to enhance the interaction of the client with a counselor and gives an integrated approach by me as a counselor. This understanding is also crucial to effective intervention with individuals who have different values compared to me as a counselor.
