Summary

This document addresses some of the misconceptions about counseling, including confusions about the distinctions between the various kinds of counseling available and the role and place of counseling in higher education. It notes that the term counseling is often tacked on to the personal tutor in higher education as an extra job that he/she should do in addition to teaching duties. Distinctions are made between the terms "generic counseling" and "psychological counseling," and it is suggested that the type of counseling practiced by tutors when dealing with personal problems is more likely to be generic counseling than psychological counseling. Various aspects of generic counseling are discussed and some of the definitions of counseling which describe psychological counseling are considered. Views on the role of a counselor held by senior management personnel, tutors, students, and counselors themselves are given. It is concluded that counseling is a frequently used and misused term, that there are many different forms of counseling stemming from different schools of thought, and that one of the major misconceptions appears to be the confusion between generic counseling and psychological counseling.
