Person-Centred Therapy – also known as Rogerian Therapy – was developed in the 1940s, by Carl Rogers. It is based on the belief the everyone has the capacity and desire for personal growth and change, to fulfil their own potential. As such, the therapist’s role is not as an expert, telling you what is wrong with you and what you need to do. They are there to empower and motivate you throughout the therapeutic process and you are an equal partner in that process. Person-centred therapy is an effective approach for individuals experiencing a range of common mental health problems, including depression and anxiety. It is a non-directive, empathic approach, where the focus is on a person’s experience of themselves. The therapist is there to offer unconditional acceptance and support, to work with you to help harness your natural self-healing and ultimately reach a more congruent view of yourself.
