"It is essential to be non judgemental and objective in working with any client. I've seen clients with various problems and conditions in my years of practice. It is important to help clients who present specific life problems to help them look at the pros and cons of their problem and help them to then make a decision as to what to do to solve their difficulties. I do give direct advice sometimes where this is applicable. In my session with a client, I allow them time to express and explain the problem and needs and time to ask them questions and clarify."
