A Client's Right

A client should have the right to seek counseling when troubled or in doubt about their sexual orientation. A counselor should have the freedom to explore with such a client the options open to the client and to assist the client in choosing and attaining the lifestyle and sexual identity they prefer, working toward that end. To not allow free discourse according to the client's decision and desire for assistance to attain that goal robs the client of free speech and human rights as accorded to them by the U.S. Constitution.
