What is Person-Centred Therapy?
Person-centred therapy (PCT) is a form of psychotherapy developed primarily in the 1950s by the psychoanalyst Carl Rogers. Since its creation, it has been recognised as one of the major forms of therapy, and it is often used alongside other forms of therapy, such as cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT). At its core, PCT is a talking therapy in which the client will have the opportunity to self-reflect on life scenarios they would not usually think over.
The reason why PCT is so effective is that it relies on three core conditions. The first is congruence which advocates transparency of the therapist. Secondly, there must be a state of unconditional positive regard from the therapist toward the client. A therapist offering unconditional positive regard will sit and attentively listen to the problems of a client without unneeded interruption. The final condition that must be present is empathy, and this is essential for a client as it will help them communicate freely.
Person-Centred Therapy Glasgow
It is never easy speaking to someone about your most personal difficulties, and it can be a challenge to seek out professional help. Psychology Scotland’s mission is to create a comfortable environment where therapeutic support can be offered without unnecessary stigmatisation. Our therapy centre is welcoming and non-judgemental. PCT relies upon a strong trust bond between the therapist and client. Without this bond being present, it is difficult to obtain the three core conditions that PCT needs in order to be impactful.
Our trusted therapists have a wealth of experience and understand the challenges that clients may face. Stepping through the door and sitting in the chair across from a therapist must be viewed as an achievement. Once you have made this step in the right direction, you can begin to develop critical coping mechanisms that will lead you toward a brighter future. Self-awareness, practical management skills, and accountability all come through therapies like PCT. We offer professionally-guided training to help you use these key coping mechanisms throughout your day. One of our major aims at Psychology Scotland is to give you the right tools to build a better life.
If you face any problems in life, we want to work with you to find the most reasonable solutions. PCT facilitates personal growth, creates sustainable management for anxiety, increases openness, and helps clients better understand their personal experiences. If these are some of the reasons behind why you are considering therapy, then PCT can be the answer to your doubts. As with all our types of therapy, we put the client’s needs first and offer them the best advice possible. Here at Psychology Scotland, we are ready to work alongside you to help you deal with your greatest personal difficulties.
