Person or Client-Centred Psychotherapy
The person centred approach to therapy and counselling was developed by psychologist Carl Rogers and is one of the most widely used approaches to psychotherapy. Often considered the back-bone of the therapeutic process, I aim to create a safe, comfortable and non-judgemental environment by employing a number of skills and techniques, such as:
- Congruence – I will remain real, genuine and non-defensive throughout the sessions.
- Empathy – I will enter your world, building up a sense of what it feels like to be you. I will then try to see the world through your eyes.
- Unconditional Positive Regard – I will not judge you or your behaviour.
The use of active listening whilst taking a non-directive approach will help you to find your own solutions to your problems.
Person centred therapy is suitable for a wide range of issues including:
It is ideal for individuals who are motivated to find out more about themselves and work towards solving their issues.
At Transitional Therapy we will often use the skills and techniques employed in Person-Centred Psychotherapy to help build a therapeutic relationship where issues can be explored and resolved.
