Having conflicting values does not mean that a counselor can’t work with a client it just means they will must proceed with caution. It is ok for the client to have a different value system and still work with them successfully. Before a counselor decides to refer a client to another professional they should first exhaust all options even if it means consulting with supervisor. According to Corey working within the framework of a client’s value system is what counseling is about, and will it be beneficial for the counselor. A Counselor may have their own belief system and can find that they are in conflict because of their own bias and values.
• Jenny’s reaction to Michael’s rejection: If the therapeutic relationship is uncomfortable, Michael should refer Jenny on to someone else, as this could impair judgement, treatment and diagnosis. • Right to withdraw relationship: Is Michael aware of his right to withdraw the therapeutic relationship if his moral, personal or religious beliefs prevent treatment. The article titled “The Role of Boundaries in counselling” (AIPTC 2010) reviews the movement of boundaries in a therapeutic relationship. The article argues whether it is beneficial to the relationship between a practitioner and a client to move boundaries. It identifies the need to keep boundaries and relationships on a professional level and to take into account any ramifications of any boundary movements whilst also distinguishing the line between actions of friend and of a practitioner.
The myth of value neutral psychotherapy has been shattered. Therapist trainees are encouraged to examine their personal assumptions and biases and to increase their own self-awareness, so that they will not impose their values on clients in psychotherapy. Nevertheless, no one is free from values, and sometimes psychologist may need to discuss their values with clients for the following reasons: First, psychotherapy theories have value-laden components and they are often hidden or taken granted; these values may not be consistent with what clients want. Therefore, clients have the right to know them to make informed choices about their treatments. In addition, sometimes psychologists cannot put aside their values in psychotherapy; values is communicated through what they do and how they do it—the way psychologists relate to clients as well as in their theoretical orientations or treatment modalities.

Terminating a Counseling Relationship or a Counseling Session For many clients, the experience of counseling may be viewed as an advantageous relationship that has not only assisted them in modifying their cognition and behavior, to a more rational approach but has allowed them to encounter alternative solutions that can provide a new way of living. Unfortunately all good things must come to an end and when clients exemplify that their goals have been attained, the counseling relationship must be terminated. On the contrary, not all counseling relationships or sessions close on a good note, which may precipitate premature termination. Nevertheless, counselors must still implement closing tactics when terminating any session or relationship in therapy, despite their causes (Jacobs & Schimmel, 2012, pgs. 160-162).

It’s the thoughts, behaviors, and self-concepts that we use to portray ourselves to others, even though it’s not our real selves.
It is at this time, where clients feel therapists are non-judgmental, goals and responsibilities are most likely to be instigated (Mallinson et al 1996). However, when utilising a person-centred approach in therapeutic dialogue it becomes the client’s choice as to whether their thoughts and emotions linked with metaphor are explored (Nelson-Jones 2006). This can result in clients being unable to resolve issues or events of importance within their lives; here it may be beneficial for the therapist to take on a psychodynamic approach to interpret meanings and conceptualise chosen metaphors. Kirkin (2007) explored the relationship between metaphors and truth telling, he stated that this type of word illusion could be used to obscure the truth and disguise feelings. He also suggested that interpretation of metaphors was individual and although often perceived powerful by clients, key principles were not always understood by the therapist (Kirkin 2007).
If practitioner finds that there is a relationship which may cause potential harm to the client or impair professional judgment he must take every effort to resolve the situation with maximal compliance with the Ethics Code (Corey 1996, p.67; Corey & Corey 2003, p.256). According to decision-making model presented by Herlihy and Corey in this situation Michael should decline Julia’s suggestions about catching up after work, explain the rationale of refusal, based on the factors that dual relationship will affect his ability to provide the highest possible standards of care and therefore will affect Julia’s recovery. Also Michael could offer a referral to another professional if this will benefit the process of Julia’s treatment and help with her health promotion (Corey & Corey 2003, p.260).
