Some of the perceived power differences between counselor and client with a counseling relationship stem from race, gender, education, ethnicity. The power differences may be perceived and not factual or they may be factual whether perceived or not; this is sometimes noted as the difference between felt and real differences and needs. The power differences may complement or undermine the counseling relationship.
