Understanding Humanistic Therapy

What is humanistic therapy?

Humanistic therapy, an approach derived from humanistic psychology, emphasizes a person’s unique potential and abilities rather than emphasizing what may be wrong with them. Instead of treating specific conditions directly, this form of therapy focuses on helping its participants overcome difficulties through personal growth.

Principles and philosophy of humanistic therapy

Humanistic therapy’s core principle rests upon its belief in every person’s inherent worth and potential for positive change, founded upon the idea that individuals have an inborn drive to live meaningful lives by realizing their full potential and taking steps toward fulfilling it. Humanistic therapy emphasizes self-awareness, acceptance, and personal growth, with particular regard to being present in each moment, acknowledging one’s feelings, and welcoming authenticity as core concepts.

How humanistic therapy works

Humanistic therapy sessions typically consist of open and honest conversations between the therapist and client, wherein the latter actively listens, encourages self-exploration, and asks insightful questions to facilitate deeper exploration of feelings and thoughts in an environment free from judgment or ridicule.

Through this process, clients gain greater insight into their motivations, fears, and desires, as well as their strengths and areas for development, giving rise to feelings of empowerment and self-efficacy in themselves and the world at large.

My Approach

When you come to me for humanistic therapy, you can expect a warm and welcoming environment where I prioritize creating an open, safe, empathetic, and non-judgmental space where you can freely express yourself without any judgment.

I am not only qualified and experienced; I am also expert in humanistic therapy, which means they possess an in-depth knowledge of its principles and philosophy, enabling them to tailor their approach according to your specific needs and concerns.

At my sessions, I integrate various therapeutic approaches, such as a person-centered approach that puts your unique perspective first and empowers you to make authentic choices that align with your identity. Next, my Gestalt therapy offers insight into current thought patterns and behaviors for deeper self-understanding. And existential therapy encourages further self-discovery and transformation.
