Person Centred Therapy
Person centred therapy is about the creation of a safe and non-judgemental relationship
space in which a person can relearn to be themselves while they explore the things that are causing them
emotional distress. Carl Rogers, the founder of Person Centred therapy believed that each person deep inside
knew what they needed to grow and be happy, but that the external world’s demands (parents, family, work,
friends, society) could make them lose touch with that inner knowledge and that this gave rise to feelings of
being unable to cope, and unsure of oneself.
Person Centred therapy is effective for all forms of psychological distress, and its theory
forms the basis of most therapeutic relationships.
