Hi Allie, I like your case conceptualization and believe it is beneficial because it contains a situation where the counsellor is required to use a person-centred approach to deal with it. I agree with you that by the person-centred approach, clients are naturally good. The therapist should, therefore, have full confidence in his/her clients to make the right decision on their situations. It is true that the therapist that work from a person-centred perspective will help the client to decide that he/she feels the right one. In Jason’s case, the therapist can help Jason understand to make a decision that he feels is the right one, a decision that will make him happy as well as ease his conscious.
It is true that as the therapist, the right way to help Jason is to help him understand some of the effects his relationship will have. This includes helping him understand the effect the relationship will have on his family and whether he would be happy to live with a relationship that was in secrets. This helps the client to think of all the possibilities and outcomes of the decisions they make. It is true that there is no right or wrong answer provided the client is happy with it. Thanks.
