The Person-Centred Approach



The person-centred approach was developed by Carl Rogers, in the 1950s.  


He believed that through the development of the client/counsellor relationship, the client can become more self-aware, achieving greater independence from the pressures of conforming to the needs of others.


This relationship, he believed, should be based upon trust, genuine understanding, non-judgement and acceptance.

Talking to a person-centred therapist, learning to appreciate that you have the capacity to self-heal can be empowering and life-enhancing.


In the aftermath of bereavement it can enable you to achieve a greater understanding of yourself and your situation.

" is the client who knows what hurts, what directions to go, what problems are crucial, what experiences have been deeply buried."
