The Client-Centered approach, sometimes also known as the person-centered or the humanistic approach, is a more traditional form of talk therapy that operates on the notion that each individual is able to fulfill his or her life potential on his or her own accord.

 

During these sessions we will talk over your thoughts, feelings, behaviours, so that you will learn how to come to certain solutions and observations on your own, all the while you learn to trust yourself again. With this therapy, the goal of the sessions is not as much to solve a certain problem or issue: the goal would be more to help you gain insight into the things that are stopping you from solving your issues on your own accord.

 

A very important aspect of the Client-Centered approach is the relationship with the psychologist: the therapist and the client need to click and feel comfortable with each other during the sessions in order for this approach to be effective.

 

This approach could be effective with issues such as:

 

  • Low self-esteem
  • Acculturation issues
  • Tiredness
  • Relationship issues
  • Worrying
  • Mood issues
  • Tension
  • Sleeping issues
  • Finding it hard to enjoy things
  • Just wanting someone to talk to and have someone listen to you.
