Person-Centred Therapy is a very supportive and nurturing form of therapy where the therapist gives you a truly empathetic ear and the time and space to sort through the issues of life
Person-Centred / Humanistic Counselling was started by Carl Rogers, in the 1940’s and grew to achieve a great following. The goal of Person-Centred Therapy is to provide us with an opportunity to develop a sense of self wherein we can realize how our attitudes, feelings and behavior are being negatively affected and make an effort to find our true positive potential.
In this technique, therapists create a comfortable, non-judgmental environment by demonstrating genuineness, empathy, and unconditional positive regard toward their patients while using a non-directive approach. If you have a strong urge in the direction of exploring yourself and if you value personal responsibility, you may be particularly attracted to the person-centred approach. You and your therapist will discuss the best course of action regarding how often you will meet. It is common to meet at least once a week, but this can vary.
