Client centered therapy is a form of psychotherapy which aim is to achieve personal growth and fulfillment, and facilitate self-healing by providing three core conditions during therapy: 1) genuineness (also called congruence), 2) unconditional positive regard, and 3) empathy.

Client-centred, non-directive or Rogerian psychotherapy was developed by Carl Rogers (1902-1987). The focus of non-directive psychotherapy is on the client’s emotions and his or her own view of his/her problems. The therapist’s gives the client an unconditional acceptance and provides a relationship of empathy, warmth and trust.
