Ethic and Moral Values in a Therapeutic Situation Between Counsellor and Client

Updated on April 14, 2012

Boundaries and Non-sexual Love in Therapeutic Situations

Working on the clients problems mean in the first step that the counsellor can make with empathy a assessment for the clients needs and therapy, it means the choice of the appropriate counselling methods, the counselling environment and individual strategies, like explaining theories or working with skills like metacommunication. Empowering the client to self-motivation, confidence and personal development can be seen as a process of learning new skills. Oliver Bown, a junior colleague of Rogers, suggested that:"love ...is a basic ingredient of the therapeutic relationship." ( Rogers 1951 )
These non-sexual love allows between client and counsellor openness and fairness without pretence and labels to understand and "meet" the other person in reality. Allowing insight in the counsellors feelings, experiences and expectations create a honestly relationship and shows the counsellors authentic presence.

Constructing boundaries and frame of relationship is important because the client must know, that about all desires, experiences or fantasies can be allowed to talk in the therapy, but they not should happen. Boundaries can be defined also in aspects of time for sessions, personal space of individual clients or counsellors, intimacy and social roles outside of the counselling room. This framework support the clients safe feelings when his or her painful experiences or personal secrets will be described.
Ethic and moral values help to protect the counsellor and the client, good practice in care work needs strong principles like respecting human rights and dignity, confidentiality, fidelity, autonomy, justice, beneficence and tolerating different beliefes and opinions.

Counselling is a very individual process between individual clients and counsellors.

      Thank you, Sid, I will write more about this topic. It´s always a very broad area, because ideas about psychodynamic and person-centred approaches to counselling change the therapists views with new scientific knowledge.

      Creating and maintaining healthy boundaries is an essential skill for any therapist - and a lifelong endeavor. This article is a good reminder of the core issue. I would appreciate hearing more, especially about the core actions that create and maintain healthy boundaries, such as not entering into dual relationships.
