Humanistic Counselling / Person-Centred Therapy

Overview of Humanistic / Person-Centred Therapy & Counselling

Humanistic counselling / person-centred therapy regards human nature positively and assumes every person is capable of solving their own problems using their innate wisdom. Individuals have an inherent self-actualising tendency towards fulfilment of their potential which can become blocked or obscured by painful life experiences. Identifying and removing these obstacles is key to helping the person fulfil their individual needs. This is achieved through self-directed growth and change, with the person choosing which issues to explore, as they know best which problems are of greatest importance to them.

Who uses it?

Person-Centred / Humanistic therapy is used by psychotherapists and counsellors.

Clinical Partners trained in this approach include: Alan Bore, Caroline Scott, Tracy Goodman and Virginia Graham.

Why would someone use it?

Humanistic / Person-Centred therapy focuses on the present moment, rather than past issues to help the person tap into their innate abilities, creativity and wisdom to fulfil their own potential as a human being.

This therapy is less directive or prescriptive than some other therapies, such as CBT, ACT and MBCT.

Humanistic / Person-Centred therapy is used to explore a range of issues, including depression, substance abuse, anxiety disorders, panic disorders, eating disorders, body-image issues, relationship issues and low self-esteem.

Strengths of the approach:

Humanistic / Person-Centred therapy can be used as a short- or long-term treatment, the length of which may be discussed with the therapist.

Limitations:

Humanistic counselling / Person-Centred therapy does not focus specifically on issues from the past. If these need to be explored further, other therapies that include the role of past experiences may be more suitable for you see Integrative, Psychodynamic, Psychoanalytic, Systemic, Transactional, Trauma Training
