“Carl Rogers’ work to develop Person Centered Therapy began in the 1950s. Rogers believed that in order for a client’s condition to improve, therapists should be empathetic, genuine and understanding,” states Dr. Michael Dadson (Mike Dadson).

Person-centred therapy focuses on a person’s own ability to attain growth and fulfilment.

Dr. Mike Dadson says, “Person-centred therapeutics develops a quality relationship with the client through humanistic dialogue in order to facilitate change in a client’s mental health and well-being.”

Dr. Mike Dadson identifies the core elements of person-centered therapy as:

Empathy – Your counsellor strives to understand your perspective

Congruence – Your counsellor relates to you as a genuine person

Unconditional Positive Regard – Your counsellor is non-judgemental about your thoughts or beliefs

Trust – The basic trust that each person, when provided with an optimal environment, has the resources within them to reach their potential.
