Hi, I am looking for someone to write an article on analysis of counseling theories Paper must be at least 1500 words. Please, no plagiarized work! &nbsp.Rogers (1957, pp. 95-103) outlined that in order for effective personality change to occur and for a truly therapeutic relationship to exist between the client and therapist, it is necessary that the therapist and the client are in psychological contact, that the client is in a state of incongruence, that the therapist is congruent and integrated in the relationship, that the therapist experiences unconditional positive regard and empathic understanding for the client, and that there is an attempt and also some degree of achievement in communicating this understanding to the client. Of these criteria, the three most fundamental ‘core’ conditions the therapist must aim to achieve are congruence, unconditional positive regard, and empathy.

Central to Rogers model is the premise that the potential psychological development of an individual can be unlocked through a relationship where the therapist feels and conveys genuine caring, sensitivity, and non-judgmental understanding in a non-directive manner towards a client (Mearns, 1994, pp. 34-36). Rogers model is considered non-directive, as unlike directive approaches, where information is collected and presented, Rogerian counseling sees information conveyed from client to therapist and explicit directions from the therapist are avoided. During a counseling session, the client is encouraged to express and explore self-directed inner feelings. The counselor responds through reflection and through paraphrasing the emotional content, helping the client consider the meaning of their inner experiences (Corey, 2009a, pp. 56-77). The therapist accepts the client’s statements without judgment or interpretation attempting to understand them as the client would.
