Body language- takes into account our facial expressions, angle of our body,proximity of ourself to another, placement of arms and legs, and so much more.Notice how much can be expressed by raising and lowering your eyebrows. Counsellor need to monitor the tone of their voice - in the same way that they monitor their body language. Remember, the person may not remember what was said, but they will remember how Counsellor made them feel.

An open question- Open question is one that is used in order to gathering lots of information can be asked it with the intent of getting a long answer. A closed question is one used to gather specific information,it can normally be answered with either a single word or a short phrase.
