Client-Centred Psychotherapy

Individuals have within themselves vast resources for self-understanding and for altering their self-concepts, basic attitudes and behaviour; these resources can be tapped if a definable climate of facilitative psychological attitudes can be provided.   Carl Rogers: A way of Being (1980)

Carl Rogers (1902-1987), humanistic psychologist, is recognised as the founder of Client-Centred Counselling/Psychotherapy and the Person-Centred Approach.

The Person-Centred Approach lays great value on the self-direction of the client and their potential for development. During the process of therapy a new balance may be found and energy set free to make choices and decisions.

The therapist offers a relationship defined by empathy, respect and authenticity, facilitating the client’s access to, and expression of, various aspects of their experience and enabling integration of these into current experiencing.
