Person Centred Counselling


This therapy is practiced by Gurcharan Singh

Person-centred counselling (also called client-centred or Rogerian counselling) is a humanistic approach that deals with the ways in which individuals perceive themselves consciously rather than how a counsellor can interpret their unconscious thoughts or ideas.

Created in the 1950s by American psychologist, Carl Rogers, the person-centred approach ultimately sees human beings as having an innate tendency to develop towards their full potential. However, this ability can become blocked or distorted by our life experiences, particularly those that affect our sense of value.

I work to understand you as an individual experience from your own unique point of view. I endeavour to positively value you as a person in all aspects of your humanity, while aiming to be open and genuine. This is vital to helping you feel accepted and better understand your own feelings, essentially helping you to reconnect with your inner values and sense of self-worth. This reconnection with your own inner resources enables you to find your own way to move forward.
