Solution:

There are four major PERSONAL ATTRIBUTES of Ali which can help him in making the treatment process more effective.

1. Desire is the beginning of all achievements, not a dream, not a requirement, but a keen pulsating desire which transcends everything. Some individuals will report that they want to make changes in their life but lack the motivation or drive. They will begin by seeking therapy and indicate a desire for change but will not or cannot make the effort necessary to carry out the process. The primary goal to seek out therapy is that their life may have become so unmanageable that their life is in a state of crisis. In addition, these clients may also be in emotional pain over such an extended time causing their physical health to deteriorate.

A stressful situation may be upsetting, but it may also be beneficial. In various life situations, events may have to get worse before they get better for the change process to develop. Therefore, a crisis can be a life misfortune or calamity, but it can also be a way to make life better because it provides an incentive for personal growth and development. Without a strong desire for change, improvements are less likely to occur. When a person has both the desire to make changes and the motivation to do so, this is half of what it takes to achieve success.

2. Belief is one of the most significant building bricks to achieving success in any venture. If someone does not believe in themselves or in what they are attempting to accomplish then this makes the goal almost impossible. The more people believe in something the more they raise their chances of being successful. The concept of belief in oneself seems straightforward, but there are still those who fail because they do not possess the belief that they can achieve their goals.

One reason people face serious and lasting emotional distress is that they do not think counseling or psychotherapy can help. They have seen media programs or read books that disparage individuals who seek counseling, or render counselors and psychotherapists in an unflattering manner. Some may consider counseling as for the weak and cowardly. These people fail because they have little or no confidence in the healing process of change. The successful person understands that it takes self-esteem to achieve a goal. Successful people know that a certain amount of trust needs to be placed in a health care provider. They may also examine any lack of confidence with the therapist in the beginning stages of counseling. This lack of confidence in others may have arisen from early childhood issues and be the primary source of a persons pain.

Many people have the hope that the first therapy meetings will fix everything negative going on in their life and the first few sessions often do solve problems that people were already prepared to resolve. However, the problems that remain after the first few meetings are the tough ones. What people want to accomplish in counseling should be clearly defined during the beginning phases of the therapy process. The next step would be to explore a reasonable time frame for reaching the goals and decide on how progress will be measured.

3. Courage is not the absence of sorrow; it is, rather, the ability to push through life in spite of adversity. Many who need counseling will not consider it, or they look for treatment and have trouble making any adjustments in life. They want their world, circumstances or others to change, but they are not willing to work on anything about themselves. It is surprising how much emotional pain a person can suffer, just because they have difficulty embracing the idea of change. Many individuals have difficulty with the process of change because it can cause much anxiety getting outside one’s comfort zone. New habits, new methods of doing things, and changing thinking patterns or behaviors require energy and time, as well as courage. The person with courage is not paralyzed by the fear; they are empowered by it. Seeking help and making changes in lifestyle requires courage.

4. Patience and dedication unlocks the doors of imagination, allows vision, and gives us the right ingredients to turn that dream into a reality. Those who believe “anything worth having is worth waiting for”, will continue on in the quest for change, and are the ones who will triumph over adversity. The counseling process requires such dedication and patience. The key to achieving success in counseling is to support the course of treatment and recognize that some issues may take time to resolve as these problems developed over many years. If people possess or develop these attributes in the initial phase of counseling they will be on the path to success. Overcoming adversity and gaining achievement is the culmination of all four attributes of Desire, Belief, Courage, and Patience. People can have the real possibility of achieving success in counseling as well as achieving any realistic goals set in life.
