SFT’s emphasis on the counselor relationship, client perceptions, and the understanding that they are responsible for these changes coincides with the existential theory of counseling, thus making it a reasonable therapeutic approach within an existential theoretical framework (Fernando, 2007). It is important to note that these two particular approaches share the common factors required by an integrative approach, specifically focusing on the relationship between the client and the counselor.
