What is Person-Centred Therapy?

At the core of the Person-Centred Approach lies the belief that the client is the one who knows what hurts; this arises out of a deep respect for the person and the healing nature of both the therapeutic relationship and the counsellors unwavering trust in the client's ability to heal.

In an environment where the consellor consistently offers the client acceptance, understanding and genuineness, the therapeutic relationship develops, creating a safe, supportive environment for the healing process to begin.
