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.
