The Counseling Process for Individuals and Couples
The counseling process at PPC is distinct from the “Medical Model”; that is widely practiced in the USA.
Some points of contrast:
|Phoenix Process Consultants||Medical Model|
|* Starts with Relationship Building||* Starts with Diagnosis|
|* Assesses life struggles and difficulties||* Names disorder and “illness”|
|* Helps client set goals||* Treats with talk and Meds|
|* Helps client remove barriers to goals||* Helps client to cope|
|* Uncovers and converts self defeating beliefs||* Uses continuing sessions to maintain coping ability|
|* Uses personal holism and action to improve psychological life style and meet goals||* Continues treatment based on insurance plan dictates|
|* Bases future relationship on transition and future Wellness||* Return of “illness” sets future treatment|
