The relationship between client and therapist is an important factor in Person-Centred therapy. Through working with me it is possible you will gain greater self-awareness, understand your emotions better and improve your relationship with yourself and with others. As Carl Rogers himself said: "When I have been listened to and when I have been heard, I am able to see my world in a new way and go on."
Person-Centred therapy was developed by an American psychologist called Carl Rogers in the 1940s. Central to Rogers' philosophy was the belief that every human strives for and has the capacity to fulfill their own potential. By providing a client with empathy, acceptance and compassion, the person-centred therapist can help a client understand their thoughts and experiences and aid their growth towards this potential.
