Person-Centered Therapy

Person-centered therapy, also known as client-centered therapy and Rogerian therapy, is a form of psychotherapy that was developed by Carl Rogers in the 1940s. Person-centered therapy is based on Roger’s belief that every human being strives for and has the capacity to fulfill his or her own potential. A person-centered therapist is likely to recognize and trust human potential, providing clients with empathy and unconditional positive regard to elicit change.

Person-Centered Therapy is similar to Client Centered Therapy. The therapist creates a relationship with the client that is built on positive regard and acceptance. The therapist portrays a congruence of being genuine and empathic. The therapy relationship is key to the client feeling safe and comfortable to be who they are.

Treatment or mental health therapy in my opinion, will never be successful unless the client is permitted to be what I call 'the Director' of their treatment. In doing so, I allow the client to lead their course of treatment, and in that journey I can provide guidance and feedback to increase one's likelihood of achieving goals that have been set.
