Person-centred therapy belongs in Humanistic approaches and constitutes a non-directive type of therapy; is where the person is placed at the centre of the service and treated as a person first. In that therapeutic relationship, the individual is the expert and the focus is on what she/he could do to improve her/his life, not on their condition or disability. It supports and enables an individual to build and keep control over their life.
- supports the person, at the ‘centre of the service’, to be involved in making decisions about their life
- takes into account each person’s life experience, age, gender, culture, heritage, language, beliefs, and identity
- requires flexible services and support to suit the person’s wishes and priorities
- is strengths-based, where people are acknowledged as the experts in their life with a focus on what they can do first, and any help they need a second
Being a Person-centred therapist, I perceive every person as unique. All individuals carry their own story, experiences, issues, but most importantly needs, which only they are in a position to fulfill; any expectations are strictly personal and I will gladly avail myself to professionally facilitate in achieving them. I am offering a safe, confidential, empathic, and harmonious environment. Along with my facilitation, you are able to explore whatever is that makes you feel distressed, so you can become more self-aware and achieve greater independence.
