Person-centred therapy is a non-directive, supportive form of therapy which means that
the role of the therapist is to provide a facilitative environment in which individuals can
discover and develop their own inner resources. Individuals come to realise their own personal
strengths and capabilities rather than being driven or influenced by the therapist and it is
through this process of self-discovery and growth that individuals can make the appropriate changes
to their situation. In this sense, it is the individual who knows best about their own experience, and
the therapist, through their demonstration of empathy, congruence and unconditional acceptance of feelings
and concerns, assists the individual in fulfilling their potential.
