Person Centered Therapy

Person Centered Therapy

Person Centered Therapy is type of therapy that will help you to embrace your authentic self. In the 1950s, Carl Rogers sought out to find what makes therapy effective. He hypothesized that if therapists met clients in therapy with unconditional positive regard, empathy, and genuineness; therapy would help clients become the best most authentic versions of themselves. Since Rogers, Person Centered Therapy has benefited clients with many concerns and is an empirically supported therapy for treating low self-esteem, anxiety, depression, and grief

Therapists utilizing Person Centered therapy will meet clients with unconditional positive regard, empathy, and genuineness. Unconditional positive regard involves complete support and acceptance of an individual no matter what. Often in life, people experience judgment or criticism when we struggle or fail, but unconditional positive regard offers compassion even when we have done something wrong. Empathy involves understanding an individual’s thoughts and feelings as if it were one’s own. In a therapeutic context, the therapist will put themselves in the shoes of the client to understand the unique pain and suffering of their human experience. Finally, genuineness in Person Centered Therapy illustrates therapists coming to therapy as a fellow human. Therapists utilizing Person Centered Therapy show up authentically and sincerely so that clients may feel comfortable being vulnerable with the therapist.

Person centered therapy recognizes that humans are inherently good and strive to be the best version of themselves. This therapy encourages individuals to turn inward and lead the way in self-discovery. The journey to become the best version of yourself is called, “self-actualization.” When life becomes challenging, and you find yourself distant from the person you’ve always known, Person Centered Therapy can help.
