Changing constructs

My interest in PCT is in terms of its application to counselling. How
do list members use PCT to bring about change in counselling? For
instance with a construct which seems to be negative at each pole,
such as," fears they'll think I'm foolish - fears they'll think I let
them down" would you discuss the evidence for each statement or talk
about what it might be like to put in a positive pole such as
changing the above to:

"fears they'll think I'm foolish - hopes they'll think I'm helpful"?

Any thoughts anyone may have on this would be most

Best wishes,
