Globalising counselling : humanistic counselling in Kenya.

McGuiness, J. and Alred, G. and Cohen, N. and Hunt, K. and Robson, M. (2001) 'Globalising counselling : humanistic counselling in Kenya.', British journal of guidance and counselling., 29 (3). pp. 293-300.


This paper explores the application of a Western, psychologically-based model of counselling and counselling training in contexts where the social and cultural conditions differ from mainstream Western societies. A group of Kenyan trainee counsellors following such a course are interviewed about their experience of training. The interview data are analysed to provide a tentative answer to the question of the appropriateness in a Kenyan cultural milieu of a humanistic counselling training model developed in the UK. It is concluded that such application is possible and desirable, if it is undertaken as shared and respectful learning between trainers and trainees.
