Person-centred Therapy



Carl Rogers’ person-centred therapy provides a means of exploring certain personal problems that are associated with incorrect or unrealistic conceptions that a person may have about his or her personality and life.

In person-centred therapy there are certain important features of the relationship the therapist develops with the client: the therapist is genuine and sincere, demonstrates an acceptance and respect for the client and seeks to reach a thorough understanding of his or her world and problems. These characteristics of the therapeutic relationship create a climate that is conducive to the exploration of personal problems and to an understanding that can lead to their resolution.
