The success of counseling depends on establishment of a productive working relationship based on mutual respect and investment in the process. We must always meet clients “where they are” and not attempt to impose our own agendas upon them. The counselor models openness to new ideas and experiences, and genuineness in relationships. The counselor’s most important tool is a willingness to appreciate the uniqueness of the individual, and to be open to new ideas. Counselors must be accountable for outcomes and continually assist clients in evaluating their own progress toward goals. Counseling is often difficult and challenging, but it can also be great fun, and a good counselor also uses humor when appropriate. Laughter is therapeutic.
