In counselling, ethical issues are not separate from practice – they are part of practice. A counsellor who feels morally secure in what they are doing tends to be more relaxed, and convey a sense of confidence to the client. Similarly, a client who has a fundamental trust in the integrity of the counsellor is more likely to talk about important stuff, and embraced the possibility of change. Each of the ethical domains that have been discussed in this chapter can also be regarded as an aspect of the counselling process. For example, talking about the limits of confidentiality is a necessary step in ethical good practice and means of strengthening the counsellor – client relationship. Asking the client if they wish to proceed with counselling is similarly an element of ethical practice and a means of positioning themselves as person with strengths and a capacity to decide what is best. While it is important for anyone in a counselling role to be as prepared as they can be to deal with ethical dilemmas through reading, discussion and role-play, the key strategy that needs to be employed in all ethical scenarios is a willingness to proceed on our collaborative basis. Resolving ethical dilemmas is not a matter of applying and algorithm or set of rules in one's head, but instead consists of engaging in a process of consultation and collaborative decision making with the clients, colleagues, and one supervisor.
