Two members of the counselling training team at the University of Wales College, Newport, take part in a 30 minute counselling session which is first shown in its entirety and then repeated with an accompanying commentary from both counsellor and client. Though the session was staged in order to make the video – the “client” being a colleague of the “counsellor”, and a counsellor herself – the material being worked with represented the genuine concerns of the “client”, nothing being fabricated for the recording.
