Centred (Humanistic) Counselling (1:1):
…in summary one-to-one person counselling basically focuses on offering you what is called in therapy ‘the core conditions’ Where you feel understood (empathy) in a warm and professional environment; where trust can then build, where you will not feel judged. If you do feel judged; we work through it.
The ‘core conditions ‘ are a very important aspect of any therapy and needs to be right for healthy growth; just like a seed planted in the right kind of soil to grow strong healthy roots and develop to its optimum.
Person-centered therapy (sometimes referred to as humanistic) is a very gentle therapy, and can also be integrated in to a combination of other therapies, which maybe identified as Integrative Therapy.
Within the person-centered therapy model my focus would be to grasp a deeper understanding of the issues, where with time I would expect trust to develop and build in the therapeutic relationship, where you will NOT be judged.
The environment should feel warm but professional to provide a healthy foundation for growth so the person engaging in therapy will be free to explore any difficulties in their own time and at their own pace.
Person-Centered Therapy is very effective in the initial stages of therapy and/or if there has been a significant loss or bereavement, or maybe a traumatic experience.
