Developed in the 1940s by Carl Rogers, Person-Centered Therapy differs from the traditional model of therapy and places the client in the expert seat. The therapist is there to support and encourage the client through the recovery process without interfering in their journey towards self-discovery.
Clients who participate in person-centered therapy get the opportunity to boost their self-esteem, increase their self-awareness, and gain clarity as they focus on their goals. Although it is a collaborative process, the client ultimately determines what course of action to take. The therapist provides feedback to guide the client and provide a clearer picture.
