Person-Centered Therapy (PCT) is a form of talk therapy which designates the primary role of the therapist as a supportive guide who promotes an attitude of unconditional compassion, acceptance and empathy. Person-Centered Therapy can be interchangeably called Client-Centered Therapy, Humanistic Therapy, or Rogerian Therapy.
Person-Centered Therapy does not see clients as being intrinsically flawed. Instead, PCT sees each individual as being capable and deserving of the growth, change, and healing they desire and are drawn to. In Person-Centered Therapy, it is assumed that the client possesses the keys to recovery and is able to discover those truths through a working relationship with their therapist.
