Person-centred Therapy

Person-centred Therapy is a collaborative process. It places the client at the centre of the work, rather than a system or model. The client directs the content of the therapy with the therapist working to understand the client’s experiences from the client’s point of view. The therapist provides an environment that is non-judgemental and aims to facilitate the client to gain increased self-awareness, understanding and self-acceptance.

Person-centred Experiential Counselling for Depression (PCE-CfD) is an innovative development in counselling and psychotherapy. It is one of the four, NICE approved, evidence-based additional modalities, licensed to be provided within NHS mental health services. PCE-CfD targets the emotional problems underlying depression along with the intrapersonal processes, such as low self-esteem and excessive self-criticism, which often maintain depressed mood. PCE-CfD therapy aims to help clients contact underlying feelings, make sense of them and reflect on the new meanings which emerge. This, in turn, provides the basis for psychological and behavioural change.
