Here is a link to Wikipedia on Carl Rogers (click on the title). His view of what it is to be a human being and what makes for effective therapy arose from his practice as a therapist, in the middle of the last century. He originated the ‘person-centred’ way of working. His work, and the work of those who have built on it since, underpins our service – in terms of what we offer clients and also in terms of how we work together as a group of therapists.
‘This process of the good life is not, I am convinced, a life for the faint-hearted. It involves the stretching and growing of becoming more and more of one’s potentialities. It involves the courage to be. It means launching oneself fully into the stream of life.’ Carl Rogers
