Description of Business/Offering on the Day

As psychotherapist and a counselling psychologist, we offer support in the form of one-to-one talking therapy to adults and young people. We are both trained in the person-centred approach, which profoundly informs the way in which we work as a fundamental basis also from which techniques from other therapeutic approaches can be applied, such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Solution-Focused-Brief-Therapy.

The person-centred approach is based on the theory and philosophy of Dr Carl Rogers. It is a non-directive approach to being with another; that believes in the other's potential and ability to make the right choices for themself, regardless of the therapist's own values, beliefs and ideas.

Originally described as non-directive, this therapy moved away from the idea that the therapist was the expert and towards a theory that trusted the innate tendency (known as the actualising tendency) of human beings to find fulfilment of their personal potentials. Today there are many people who, although not working as psychotherapists and counsellors, use the work of Rogers as guiding principles in their day-to-day work and relationships (B.A.P.C.A).

We would like to use our stall to share information about person-centred therapy as an alternative approach in the form of a psychological and educational pop-up service. It will offer information about the person-centred approach to offer an alternative holistic perspective on how we can perceive and understand psychological issues and the concept of mental health.
