ABOUT MY THERAPY
Person-centred counselling is one of the humanistic modalities or approaches. It was founded in the 1940s by the American psychologist Carl Rogers who believed that, given the right conditions, a person can reach their full potential and become their true self, which he termed ‘self-actualisation’. This actualisation process is innate and accessible to everyone.
To help you achieve self-actualisation, the person-centred therapist will offer:
Unconditional positive regard (UPR) – accepting and valuing you
Congruence - being honest and transparent in how they experience you and your world
Empathic understanding – seeing and feeling your birds eye view of your world
When you attend a session with a person-centred counsellor, you’ll be encouraged to bring your own issues to the session – you have full autonomy, the session is led by you without any pressure and you will not be directed by the counsellor.
Many clients, with no prior knowledge of counselling, believe that the counsellor will sort their problems out for them. A person-centred counsellor will help you to explore your own issues, feelings, beliefs, behaviour, and worldview, so you can become more self-aware and achieve greater independence.
