What is Client Centred Therapy?
Client Centred Therapy (sometimes referred to as Person Centred Therapy) was developed by humanistic psychologist Carl Rogers in the 1940s-1950s. Client Centred Therapy is a non-directive, empathic approach that empowers and motivates people to fulfil their potential and become their best version of themselves. Core components of Client Centred Therapy include unconditional positive regard, empathy and genuineness on the part of the therapist.
At Inner Melbourne Clinical Psychology each of our psychologists works using client-centred principles. We believe for therapy to effective it must be tailored to the individual needs and preferences of our clients and that no one approach fits all.
