It is the Relationship That Heals
Person-centred therapy is about the relationship between you, as the client, and me as your therapist.
It is the fundamental belief and knowledge that, if you are met and heard where you are at, any past psychological wounds will become healed - because you will have had those painful experiences met with open, empathic and compassionate care, rather than your past experience (which may have been one of shame, humiliation or hurt, or one where it was just missed, whether that was a deliberate or accidental act on the part of the person who did it).
Rather than being constrained by the past experience, you become able to be the freed version of you expressing what you wanted to express originally. That can allow movement in other areas of your past as well as your present and can be transformative.
