In 'Counselling Foundations', we look at phenomenology - the philosophy of perception.

Then in 'Focus on Self', we think about new beginnings.

And lastly in 'Practice Matters', Rory speaks with Sally-Anne Armitage about using the skill of focusing in counselling.

Listen as Rory and Ken discuss the tongue twister of the day - phenomenology.


The key points of this discussion include:




It is the philosophy of experience and perception.

How we interpret the world, our place in the world, and what is happening around us - this will be completely individual to ourselves.

To enter the clients frame of reference is to understand their phenomenological view.

How you engage with the world will be different from others.

Should counsellors offer a gentle challenge to alter a client's worldview or opinion on something?

The phenomenological way we view things can change.

Plenty of focus is given to endings within our lives, but focusing on new beginnings is just as important.


In this section Rory and Ken discuss some of the main things you can consider when it comes to your new beginnings:




Maybe try and place more emphasis on beginnings than endings - think about where you're going, not necessarily where you've been.

Thinking, 'what's next?'

With every ending there is a beginning - try not to dwell of the endings.

New beginnings can come in different forms with different feelings - excitement, nervousness.

Embrace the new beginnings.
