Devised by Carl Rogers and also called “Client-Centred” or “Rogerian”  counselling, this is based on the assumption  that  a client  seeking help in the resolution of a problem they are  experiencing, can enter into a relationship with a counsellor  who is sufficiently accepting and permissive to allow the client to freely express any emotions and feelings.

This will enable the client to come to terms with negative feelings, which may have caused emotional problems, and develop inner resources. The objective is for the client to become able to see himself as a person, with the power and freedom to change, rather than as an object.
