MBTI – IN COUNSELLING
“Seek first to understand….”
No one comes to see a counsellor because life is wonderful. That wonder, passion, enjoyment is what they are seeking to recover. The therapeutic relationships comes about because something is disturbing their: peace of mind, functioning and engagement at work, enjoyment of life, happiness, relationships, well being.
MBTI is a useful way for the counsellor to begin understanding a little about you the client. With understanding comes acceptance and when the client feels accepted and understood the relationship is enhanced, and more beneficial.
Any number of models and theories are also involved in therapeutic and behavioural health care interventions, and MBTI is one starting point.
