What can Person-Centered Therapy (PCT) help with?

Person-Centered Therapy, also known as client-centered, non-directive, or humanistic psychology, is a form of psychotherapy that emphasizes the importance of the therapeutic relationship and the client’s own ability to grow and change. The therapist takes a non-judgmental, accepting attitude and strives to create a supportive environment in which the client feels free and safe to explore whatever issues are of concern. Person-Centered Therapy can be helpful for a wide variety of psychological problems, including depression, anxiety, relationship difficulties, and low self-esteem. It can also help people who are struggling to make significant changes in their lives, such as quitting smoking or losing weight.
