Person-Centered Psychotherapy by Carl Rogers

Carl Rogers' client-centered talk therapy, developed by Carl Rogers, is one of the most effective forms of psychotherapy.

 

"It is very rare in life that someone listens to us and truly understands without immediately judging. This is a very profound experience." (Carl Rogers, Ohio, 1980s)

 

It is therefore not surprising that Carl Rogers placed unconditional positive regard for the client, congruence of the therapist (in terms of authenticity and genuineness in their statements and actions), and empathy at the center of his therapy philosophy. Carl Rogers believed that the client carries everything necessary for therapy success within themselves. Evaluations and (directive) advice from the therapist take a backseat. The client is at the center with their desires, feelings, values, and goals.

 

In this perspective, which is rarely encountered in the "jungle" of everyday life, the therapist actively listens to the client and contributes to the client finding a solution to their issue using their personal qualities and resources. This strengthens problem-solving skills through newly developed strategies and activates the client's self-efficacy. It has the potential to strengthen self-confidence.
