Chris Turbak: Counseling Portfolio
Transcript of Chris Turbak: Counseling Portfolio
Change is not a difficult thing to achieve, we make changes on a daily basis. The difficulty lies in maintaining change once it has occurred. In order to help this process a counselor can help the individual identify the connection between their beliefs, behaviors, feelings, and thoughts. This understanding can help a person understand why they make certain decisions and can in turn lead to more positive decisions. The theory I choose to employ with my clients is Cognitive Behavioral theory. This theory is beneficial for my clients because it helps them develop an understanding of why they continually make destructive decisions in their life. Through an increased understanding clients are able to catch themselves prior to making a negative decision and turn it into a positive choice. Me as a Counselor As a counselor I believe in treating clients not as a client but as a person. It is my opinion that too often, counselors see the client as a diagnosis and someone to fix, rather than a person no different from the counselor. Clients are not coming to see me in order to feel judged or labeled and that is not why I became a counselor. At times, all of our lives become unmanageable and we could all use the help of someone who cares. So as a counselor, I sell my services by showing that I am someone who cares.
