Approach to Psychotherapy and Counselling
Person-Centred Therapy is an evidence-based approach that is client led, relational, and exploratory. Its basis is a relationship that is respectful, authentic, and empathic, the conditions revealed by research as promoting therapeutic growth.
Attachment science has reinforced these findings and shown that, just as we are formed by our first relationships, later relationships can change our limiting assumptions about ourselves and the world.
