Reflection on My Counseling Micro-Skills

Micro-skills for counseling encapsulates the engagement phase of the session; they are of critical importance to build rapport, trust and the therapeutic alliance (Bogo, 2006). Practice with counseling micro-skills you are reading and learning about can seriously boost your growth as a psychology student and future counseling or clinical practitioner. Listening and silence, exploring with questions that are neither judgmental nor leading, and the use of nonverbal body language, are the language of micro-skills in counseling as they help you to actively hearing what the client is saying.
