Many times a client is interested in how the Treatment Process works. Just how does Counseling work? In my view, the most important ingredient affecting a positive outcome is the motivation of the client to feel better and/or do better.

The role of the provider is to assist the client in accessing inner strengths and solutions they might not be aware of. This involves some problem solving discussions to first identify the source of the difficulty. Also important is the developing of understanding as to what may contribute to or reduce the negative impact of the problem or problems troubling the individual, couple or family.

Coming from a Humanistic background I believe most people possess the real solutions to their problems although sometimes they are unable to access those solutions without assistance. Many times my role is that of a consultant to the client or clients in discovering those solutions and finding ways to reduce the trouble they are experiencing.
