I would say first you must know the clientele that you are working with. Try not to evoke your own beliefs and style that work for you unless you are dealing with someone within your age and ability. You have to tailor a plan and treatment for the individual which means no 2 will look the same.
Thanks for your help keeping CareerVillage safe!
I often encourage my clients to focus on the choices in their lifestyle as a way of improving their mood. Research in our profession supports this. You won’t be in conflict if are citing evidence based information. This will be true for all facets of your career.
Stay current on research in your field, give clients evidence for your recommendations. Live your life in healthy ways so they can see a healthy, happy role model. Mostly importantly, show empathy for how difficult it can be to make the difficult choices of eating well and living healthy in a world that supports fast food and quick fixes.
