It makes you think of satanism, or the KKK. Religion on the other hand makes you think of God, a temple, purity, or prayer. Anything spiritual and of good teachings.

It is my desire to support clients' efforts to gain insight and identify solutions for their areas of concern and believe that most of the answers lie within. From my perspective, the counselor's role is to create a climate in which clients can examine their thoughts, feelings, and actions and eventually arrive at solutions that are best for them. As a counselor, it is important to be non-judgmental, when counseling or helping another person, regardless of how open-minded I may consider myself to be. Personality attributes of professional counselors has a great impact in the counseling process. Being nonjudgmental and accepting are important attributes in any of the helping professions.
The approaches are named: “Separate but Equal”, “Tossed Salad”, “Nothing Buttery”, and “Spoiling the Egyptians”. The “Separate but Equal” approach states that psychology and theology are both important but are two different entities. His thoughts were that the two doctrines should never intertwine when helping clients. In the “Tossed Salad” approach, therapists make use of both psychology and theology by combining parts of two doctrines. However, when using this approach little value is given to the fact that some of the psychology tends to contradict with theology beliefs.
This essay concentrates on Carl Rogers’ person centred approach suggesting that therapeutic conditions such as congruence, unconditional positive regard and empathy are key to successful personal counselling and growth. Along with this are the basic micro skills used in counselling such as attentive listening, paraphrasing, reflective responses, probing and summarising. It is essential to realise the importance of using basic counselling skills. According to Palmer (2000) in order to be an effective helper it is important that the skills are identified, understood, learned and practiced repeatedly. It is also critical to recognize that the “ use of counselling skills is properly associated with therapeutic, helping or healing ends and not with self centred agendas” ( p. 4).

During my interactions with clients, I must understand their feelings, behavior, and motivations so that I can help clients to identify any negative cognitive and behavioral patterns. As I fulfill my mission as a counselor, the therapeutic process must be given the time to work if the client is to achieve their personal goals and gain the necessary insight into their lives.
People are not separate parts, but are complex integrated beings. For Christian counseling this approach does not hold a Biblical basis to develop one’s theory of counseling.

Analysis of the Critical Review Papers: Ethical Issues in Counseling Practice Mindy Gochis Montana State University-Billings Analysis of Critical Review Papers While there is no limit to the number and variety of ethical issues one can face within in a counseling setting, the text attempts to look at some of these more common situations. The first issue the text delves into is that of placing the clients’ needs before our own as counselors. The ability to honestly and intentionally look at this specific aspect of ethics can place us on a stable ground with which to build our practice on. The author of the text continually repeats that” professional maturity” is helpful in all aspects of making ethical decisions. This “professional maturity” is the foundation for which ethical decision making is built upon.
Roger use these therapy in treating individual as a person to improve his quality of life. Carl establish supporting evidence that individual inductive knowledge as the fundamental healthful effect. He also states that the therapeutic process is substantial achievement made by the patient. He strongly believed that his structured analysis should be practice rather than the other way round.

On one hand you have the philosophers who believe you can speak and write about God, because God is reality. On the other hand, are the Logical Positivists who claim that statements about God have no meaning because they don’t relate to anything that is real. There are a number of philosophers who claimed to have proven conclusively that religious language is meaningful, for example Aquinas’ theory of analogy. An analogy is an attempt to explain the meaning of something which is difficult to understand and forming relations through attributes or relations that are similar. Aquinas rejected univocal and equivocal language when talking about God.
