Carl Rogers' client-centered therapy
As a child care officer working with young people in residential care in the 70's, I was introduced to the work of Carl Rogers, an American psychologist, and was immediately drawn to what was a deeply respectful way of working with individuals. This started me on a journey to learn more and, despite having little success at school, I was able to gain a degree in Psychology with the Open University. I then studied person-centred counselling at Strathclyde University, one of the first institutions to bring Rogers's Client-centered Therapy to Britain. Since then, I have continued to work (and learn) with individuals in this way.
