Person-centred therapy, developed by Carl Rogers, is a humanistic approach to counselling that emphasises the client’s self-discovery and growth. It focuses on creating a non-judgmental and empathetic therapeutic relationship, where the therapist provides unconditional positive regard, empathy, and genuineness to support the client’s self-exploration and personal development.
