In many ways, the colours of the rainbow reflect the many approaches to counselling available. Each "colour" has it's own beauty but touches each other with the conditions we all practise by: empathy, congruence and valuing each client as an individual. As counsellors, we all trust in the process that our clients will reach their pot of gold and look back on their rainbow as a positive and life changing experience.
The beauty of such a rainbow is that even during a storm, the colours can shine through, providing hope and clarity through the dull sky.
Uniquely, the rainbow of counselling can touch individuals and counsellors in a way which we carry with us forever and in such a climate where individuals experience pain, as counsellors, we can offer clients the opportunity to experience their own rainbow.
I guess I beg the question: What colour are you?
