Although the Person Centred client and counsellor relationship would be 'immediate', reviewing provides the opportunity to 'take stock' and bring into awareness issues that might otherwise have been lost in the moment, this may be about the initial expectations the client had of the counsellor or counselling.
Review is perhaps more about analysis and may not 'fit' with the Person Centred theory. It is considering what progress has been made, a way of monitoring.
The counsellor may initiate a review, if they feel that they are no longer able to serve the client and wish to make a referral. Similarly, the review opportunity would enable the client to explore the possibility of referral, if they themselves feel that the counsellor is unable to serve them. It would be time to consider the benefits of the work to present, providing a focus on achievements and arranging when the next review would ideally take place.
In conclusion, ethical issues are problematic; BACP codes cannot be proven correct or right. It is clear that human relationships are founded upon subjective and personal boundaries. It is unlikely, that nationwide 'professional' agreement of what is right and wrong will be achieved. Confidentialiy is central to counselling. Using adequate protection measures there is no reason why confidentiality cannot be maintained, if not increased, using Internet communication technologies. There is a need to construct client and counsellor contracts; the act of review, assists the counselling process and plays a central and key role in any therapeutic environment.
