Person Centred Counselling

 Person Centred Counselling places the emphasis on the therapeutic relationship and more importantly on you and your needs. It doesn’t impose theories on to you or label your experiences. Rather, it assumes that you are a unique individual with unique thoughts, feelings and experiences and that you know yourself more than anybody else. The process of counselling, in relationship with your counsellor, may help you to resolve some of the problems you are currently faced with and find better ways of coping with them and of living in the future. The role of the counsellor is to be with you on your journey whilst you are in counselling, to accept you unconditionally for the person you are, to empathise with you and to experience the world as you do and to be as honest as possible in the relationship. The counsellor gives you the space and time to talk about whatever you want to talk about during therapy, you set your own goals and you are responsible for the general direction your counselling takes.

The following quote from Carl Rogers (the founder of Person Centred Counselling) helps to describe how counselling can help:

“When I have been listened to and when I have been heard, I am able to re-perceive my world in a new way and to go on. It is astonishing how elements that seem insoluble become soluble when someone listens, how confusions that seem irremediable turn into relatively clear flowing streams when one is heard. I have deeply appreciated the times that I have experienced this sensitive, empathic, concentrated listening.” Carl Rogers
