  • Without even knowing you could be doing some counseling to the friend of your wife. The teller at your local bank. The guy who prepares your meat at sol market. It is different when you live in a large city. You don’ have the same luck as the ones that live in rural areas.
  • The interaction between counselor and client is very important especially when there is a trustful communication between both of them. There is time when relationship can be conflicting. Such in cases where your somewhat related , you have some sort of indirect communication with the client. Whether its from family, job related or friends.
  • When you play the role of multiple relationships it can lead up to many confusions on your clients part. This type of multiple relationship can either be destructive or therapeutic. When you role blend and play many roles in an agency could be confusing and distrustful to your client. It is very important to maintain a healthy relation as a counselor and client to avoid boundary violations, which can lead to mal practice.
  • Therapists gave a number of reasons for not acting on the attraction to clients: 1. A need to uphold professional values. 2. Concern for the welfare of the client. 3. Desire to follow personal values. 4. Fear of negative consequence. (Corey, "Chapter 7,Sexual Attractions in the Client-Therapist Relationship,"  2011)T.Williams
  • Many therapists would rather hide than acknowledge and deal with sexual feelings by consulting a colleague or by bring this to their therapy.(Corey, "Chapter 7,Sexual Attractions in the Client-Therapist Relationship,"  2011)T.Williams
  • Bartering is not recommended. This could lead to role confusion, misleading roles, It can even be overlapping roles, as friends counselors, acquaintance or even BFF’s. Can trust and confidence still be between or is it diminished?
  • A marriage and family therapist in a small farming community agreed to take fresh produce as payment for three sessions with a couple who needed professional advice regarding the management of an elderly parent. A counselor in a small town agreed to see a proud but poverty-stricken client who was mourning the loss of his spouse in return for the client's carpentry work on a charitable home restoration project organized by a group that the counselor actively supported. A psychologist performed a child assessment in exchange for five small potted trees from the parent-owner of a struggling nursery service.

  • It is very important that if you decide to continue with the thought of bartering in order to help your client. The best recommendations is to protect yourself. Have a written agreement. Have your client sign it in front of a mediator. Explain the details of the agreement to avoid confusions.
