Person-centred therapy works with the ways in which we perceive our self consciously, rather than attempting to interpret our unconscious thoughts, ideas, or imaginings, as some more analytical therapies do. This makes this way of approaching finding a solution to things that are causing you some kind of difficulty or misery, more immediate. Easier access to solutions means less time caught up in the problem.
A person-centred approach sees us as having an innate tendency to develop towards our full potential using our own resources and supports. However, this ability can become blocked or distorted by our life experiences. This in turn effects our sense of self worth, either by depressing it, or inflating it. Both of these effects cause personal suffering.
Using this understanding I work to understand your experience from your point of view. My positively valuing you as a person in all aspects of who you are, and by being open and genuine, allow us both to feel accepted and better understand our own feelings. We do this together. The intention is that this enables you to reconnect with your inner values and balanced sense of self-worth. This reconnection with your own resources enables you to find your way to move forward.
Two powerful things are happening here. You hear yourself express what is important to you and what thoughts and/or actions may be interfering. Then we explore what it is that works for you to free yourself from what is making you unhappy, anxious or unwell.
And when we find what works for you, you can explore and practice it, because it is what works for you. Which of course is you.
