Person-centered therapy believes that everyone is different and, therefore, everyone’s view of their own world, and ability to manage it, should be trusted. All of us have the power to find the best solutions for ourselves and make appropriate changes in our lives. Person-centered therapy allows you to use your own understanding of your experiences as a platform for healing.
The three conditions which facilitate this understanding are:
Unconditional positive regard: this means I practice empathy and non-judgement which encourages you to make your own decisions and choices
Empathetic understanding: where I work to completely understand your thoughts and feelings
Congruence: which means I carry no air of authority or professional superiority but, instead, present a true and accessible self that you can see is honest and transparent.
