Person Centred Therapy
This is based on the principle that the counsellor provides three “Core Conditions” (or essential attributes) that are, in and of themselves, therapeutic.
- Unconditional Positive Regard: Warm, positive feelings, regardless of the person’s behaviour.
- Empathic Understanding : The ability to imagine oneself in another person’s position.
- Congruence : Honesty and Openness.
The counsellor uses the relationship with the client as a means of healing and change.
