The process of psychological counseling is expected to start with a client’s consciousness of his/her need for something. When the client appeals for help, he/she is hoping to get rid of the problem. From this moment on, the specialist has a more complicated job. He/she must decide on what the problem is or is not, the functions of the ego that are the cause of the problem, whether or not the problem can be solved within its boundaries and which techniques and methods can be used if the problem is to be used. This decision must then be put into practice and following the practice, the entire process must be evaluated in terms of how successful it has been. All these proceedings require detailed and dynamic processes. The study is a descriptive analysis of these dynamic processes. In the study, the definition and evaluation of the problem, the application of the selected method and the evaluation of the effects of the process are presented through a case. Through the study, the nature of psychotherapeutic processes and relationships are analyzed in general. In particular, the study analyzes the effectiveness of the method of dynamic oriented and individual-centered counseling on the problem of stuttering and high level of anxiety that appears due to individual dissonance. The study was carried out on a 22-year-old female university student. The quantitative and qualitative findings are also discussed. At the end of the report, an emphasis has been made on the scientific and artistic sides of the psychological counseling process.
