Considers the relevance of relationship‐counselling to the workplace. Geneograms are used to provide a method of achieving an historical perspective within short‐term counselling. The thesis is that an understanding of the ways in which we have related to significant persons in the past can provide an insight into our part in the relationships we have with colleagues. This knowledge can enable clients to take control even in situations in which they may have felt powerless. Uses the technique, while working with a business counselling scheme, which allowed employees six‐to‐eight one‐hour sessions of counselling.
