Ethics are moral principles or rules of behaviour for deciding what is right and wrong. Counselors endeavor to help clients develop personal systems of ethics, using counselling skills. The task of counseling is to give the counselee an opportunity to explore, discover and clarify ways of living in more satisfying and resourceful ways. Maintaining good standards of counseling involves continuing self-monitoring and self-development on the part of the counsellor. The counseling relationship by its nature is confidential.
