Humanistic Therapy

Humanistic Therapy emphasizes the distinctive attributes of the Client and this model values the unique viewpoints of the Client and how he/she perceives the world around them. These beliefs can influence the Clients choices, actions, and mental health. Humanistic Therapists focus on growth and self-actualization and less on curing diseases. The clinician will establish a “here and now” environment and explore how particular emotions make the Client feel. The Counselor may use a range of techniques to explore these feelings like “role-playing”. This therapeutic approach embraces free will and self-discovery as a gateway to liberate the Client from disabling thought patterns, attitudes, and assumptions. Humanistic Therapy is a cover term that encompasses three types of therapy i.e. Client-Centered Therapy, Gestalt, and Existential Therapy.
