Additionally, developing self-awareness helps the client to rediscover meaning in life. Some clients will, however, need a more structured therapy than is typical in a humanistic person-centered approach. One of the strengths of using a humanistic/person-centered approach when working with clients is the warmth and caring of the relationship that (hopefully) develops between counsellor and client. The counsellors active listening and full emotional availability will provide them with a healing environment within which they can explore their emotional experiences safely and without judgment.

According to Pabian, Y. L., Welfel, E. R., & Beebe, R. (2007) this case law requires the psychologist to make a good faith effort to contact the identified person who the client intends to harm or notify law enforcement. While on the other hand when dealing with the duty to protect the psychologist is obligated by law to take actions to protect a threatened third party, but they also have other options. When observing the duty to warn principle one of the most difficult things thus far in some of these situations is when to draw the line between the Duty to Warn principle and confidentiality.
