Person-Centred Therapy

Person-Centered Therapy, also known as Client-Centered Therapy or Rogerian Therapy, is a humanistic and non-directive approach to psychotherapy developed by Carl Rogers in the mid-20th century. It is grounded in the belief that individuals have the capacity for self-actualization and personal growth.

Person-Centred Therapy


Person-centered therapy, also known as Client-Centered Therapy or Rogerian Therapy, has its roots in the work of American psychologist Carl Rogers during the mid-20th century. Influenced by thinkers like John Dewey and Otto Rank, as well as the humanistic psychology movement, Rogers developed a more client-centered, non-directive approach to therapy. In the 1940s and 1950s, he further refined his approach, emphasizing the importance of understanding the unique experiences and needs of the individual. In his seminal book "Client-Centered Therapy" (1951) and "On Becoming a Person" (1961), he outlined the core principles of his approach, including the conditions of unconditional positive regard, empathy, and congruence, which create a therapeutic environment that allows clients to explore their thoughts and feelings without judgment.

Person-centered therapy gained popularity, became a major approach in humanistic psychology and psychotherapy, and continues to influence the field of psychology and counseling. Various adaptations and variations have emerged over time, allowing the approach to be applied to diverse populations and integrated with other therapeutic modalities. Today, it remains a relevant and widely used approach, emphasizing the significance of the therapeutic relationship, empathy, and the client's self-exploration and self-actualization.
