Conduct this session as yourself, a Counselling Skills student, and apply the appropriate skills and guidelines learned in the module to counsel your classmate. Do not pretend to be a professional counselor or anyone else but ensure that ethical guidelines such as informed consent are followed. In your 1500-word essay, exclusive of the transcript, you are required to:

1. Explain what counseling is.
2. Explain 5 counselling skills that you applied appropriately during the counselling session with your classmate-client. These 5 skills should be evident in your transcript and should be from the following list:

  • Attending
  • Active listening
  • Responding
  • Paraphrasing
  • Summarising
  • Questioning
  • Self-disclosure
  • Immediacy
  • Advanced empathy
  • Challenging

3. Identify 3 counselor-centered areas for improvement encountered during the counselling session. In other words, do not attribute shortcomings in the counseling session to the classmate-client or counseling medium.
4. Suggest appropriate ways to address the above-mentioned 3 areas for improvement.
