Dear Student,
Hi and thank you for using Brainmass. The solution below should get you started. In this particular task, you are being asked to compare 2 sets of standards. Since you did not indicate another standard aside from NCDA, I shall assume that this can be any standard as long as it relates to counselling. The outline is simple as follows:

1. Your speciality area, work setting and client population - 150 words
2. Standards from BACP - 100 words
3. Standards from NCDA - 100 words
4. Explain relationship and relevance between the 2 sets - 100 words

This outline should yield around 450 words which should cover what you need for this particular problem. The solution below should get you started. It shows you how such an outline and the task can be filled and completed. Obviously, I chose BCPA because I am familiar with it but such a standard is also seen as making headways in the globe and will no doubt be relevant to those practising counselling stateside. You can also use the listed resources to further explore the topic. All the best with your studies and happy holidays!
