Great - finally an idea for my blog that will be satisfying to me, and hopefully some others. I'm going to write about why counsellors & psychotherapists do what they 'do', or 'don't do' as the case may be.
Counsellors & psychotherapists should have some rationale for how they are in sessions with their clients. There may be times that is not apparent to them, but they should be evaluating and reflecting on their practice to make sure that they are working to some kind of 'counselling theory' (unless they are existential, but even then they should reflect on is this of an existential approach) - so they are being helpful to their clients development.
If a therapist has no idea why their doing what they are doing , or doesn't reflect on it in anyway, then how do they know what they are doing is right for their client, or know they are offering what they say they offering.
So watch this blog. 'Why does my therapist...?'
