A therapist plays a passive but very important role in order to make the therapy work. The therapist needs to see that the therapy goes in the correct direction and that the client can achieve the goals easily, effectively and in a way that gives the client maximum benefit. While active listening is one of the most vital practices in a client-centered therapy, there are many roles and suggestions for client-centered therapists that they should keep in mind to facilitate successful therapy sessions. Following are some definite roles that a therapist must carry out:- • Genuine empathy – This refers to the therapist’s ability to see and understand issues and situations from the client’s perspective. When the therapist is able to show an empathetic understanding of what the client is experiencing, it helps the client have a better inner understanding as well.

Person Centred Therapy operates according to three basic principles that reflect the attitude of the therapist to the client: 1. The therapist is congruent with the client – shows genuineness towards the client. 2. The therapist provides the client with unconditional positive regard – having deep and genuine caring for the client.
Process Report of a Client Centred Therapy Session Reflection and Literature Review Gina Enache-Raw PS 4002 - Humanistic Approach and Skills Abstract The purpose of this process report is to critically evaluate my sensitivity within the counselling process and to assess my awareness of what was occurring within the therapy as this allows me to explore areas that have potential for further development and to increase my understanding of a humanistic framework. I will attempt to inform the reader about my interactions with the client and explain how I have made sense of the therapeutic process and what I have learned from the experience. One of the main reasons for choosing this particular session was because I have previously worked with the client and there were certain issues worth exploring from both, mine and client’s perspective. For example, as the reader will see from the excerpt the client spoke about issues within her family and I have considered this to be of a particular interest from both personal and multi-cultural perspectives.

The purpose of person-centred approach during counselling is to increase ones self –esteem, whilst being open about new experiences allowing one to find out where they belong and to be contented with life. Where as the mindfulness approach is to gradually build a foundation of equanimity and clarity on a day-to-day basis. Both the person centred and mindfulness approaches to counselling are designed to help individuals who are suffering with problems such as fear and sadness. They both work around the concept of dealing with feelings whilst in the here and now instead of dwelling on them at a later date.

SFBT is an approach that focuses on how clients change, rather than one which focuses on diagnosing and treating problems. Here, we see the therapist as a collaborator and adviser who helps clients to achieve their goals.
