About Person Centered Psychotherapy

Person-Centered Psychotherapy is a humanistic and phenomenological approach based on the ideas developed by Carl Rogers, his associates, and later followers of this Approach. We sincerely believe that each person has within himself or herself all the resources, strength, and power to promote their changes towards healing, new insights, and development. The psychotherapist’s role is to provide the client with the necessary conditions for growth to occur. Therefore, a psychotherapist strives to ensure a safe and trustworthy interpersonal relationship so that a client may discover and establish their path to self-determination.

The Person-Centered Psychotherapy Training Level II will focus on PCP’s theory and practicum, and the psychotherapist self and professional development In this course, we will be learning through our own experience, reflection, and practice. Students will learn to enhance possibilities for their change. We will practice utilizing our full potential as an instrument of change for our client’s benefit. We will rediscover our strengths in efficiency, skill, and wisdom.
