Example text

I was, after all, there to counsel the person, not the disease. What clients said was part of their personal psychology and therefore could not be unconnected to any other part of them, including their experience of the disease. Not always being able to understand what I was told did not negate its validity or relevance. I believe that it was vital for the counselling process that, when necessary, I was content to remain uncertain and to tell the client so.

The assessment procedure was originally chosen as the least intrusive method of enquiry that I could find. Its research advantage was that it could highlight the main problems and aims of people with IBD and track clients’ progress in these areas throughout their counselling.

IBD is a problem, but patients can all too easily be seen as the problem, rather than having the problem. But I also met clients who gladly embraced the psychosomatic theory. Perhaps because uncertainty and unpredictability are so hard to bear, some people find it easier to accept the responsibility, even the blame, themselves (‘I have this disease because of an unresolved issue in the past/Because I am an over-anxious person’). It allows for a feeling of control (‘When I have analysed my problems correctly/When I stop being over-anxious, the disease will go away’).
