Nightmare or needed strategy?

February 2007
Therapy Today;Feb2007, Vol. 18 Issue 1, p32
In this article, the author discusses mental health counseling in the client's home. The author wishes to offer some insights drawn from his experience as a counselor for Dementia Care Trust in Great Britain. He asserts that counseling in the client's home may seem like madness, but it widens access to therapy and provides material that would otherwise be unavailable for processing. The author also observes that a visiting counselor evokes the stereotype of a social visit, as opposed to a professional service.
