East believes this will only happen if there can be dialogue between professionals and patients: 'the most appropriate counselling takes place when everyone is clear what is on offer, and what is on offer has been chosen by providers and by consumers.

What shift in attitudes and resources has to happen before counsellors become more commonplace in primary care? Traditionally patients have looked to their GPs for help with emotional, relationship and family tensions, namely the problems of living, and from them they have received advice, reassurance, support, an ear to listen and a shoulder to cry on. Many GPs enjoy this aspect of their work, believing it to be the essence of good doctoring; others feel ill-equipped to deal with it, and not a few feel unsympathetic, even antipathetic, towards their patients' emotional lives.

Counsellors are often more comfortable with the 'containment only approach', whereas GPs may perceive those patients for whom past treatment decisions have been insufficient, as a medical failure. In contrast GPs can help counsellors understand more about the medical aetiology of symptoms, a subject much neglected in many counselling training courses.
