With the help of some caring others, I have decided effectively to invest my time in exploring my inner child. In short, the counselor needs to help the client feel like they are fully understood on their own terms, not on some other terms that the counselor dictates. Because it’s easier for us to find excuses than to find ways; even though the former brings frustration, it is much more comfortable than the latter which always comes with a bit of fear.

In my clients and in myself I find that when life is richest and most rewarding it is a flowing process. As far as you and everyone you know is concerned, psychotherapy is all about smart-looking men or women sitting in a chair opposite you and asking you questions until they can help you reach a solution to your problems – or, even better, offer you one. He found that many of these patients had negative feelings about themselves because they held inaccurate beliefs about themselves. I find I am at my best when I can let the flow of my experience carry me, in a direction which appears to be forward, toward goals of which I am but dimly aware. Chances are that these interactions happened in an environment that was trusting, open, frank, and in which you were given full attention and really listened to without judgment.He says: The more I am open to the realities in me and in the other person, the less do I find myself wishing to rush in to "fix things".

Presenting the non-directive and related points of view in counselling and therapy, this book defines the progress recently made in the development of the techniques and basic philosophy of counselling. Despite its challenges, unconditional positive regard remains a cornerstone of humanistic therapy and an important factor in promoting personal growth and positive change. The book is excellent and not nearly as dated as one might expect, given the significant amount of progress that has occurred in psychology over the last 50+ years. Carl Rogers believed that humans in their daily lives are creative and active people who stay in the present and are concerned with situations, interpersonal relationships and perceptions, only in the present. result from frustration of more basic impulses for love and security and belonging, which are in themselves desirable.The main difference between both the eminent psychologists' Rogers and Abraham Samuel Maslow is in their humanistic theories of self-actualization. And the job of a psychotherapist should be that: to listen attentively and pass no judgment over his patients, thus creating a safe environment wherein one can really get in touch with his true self.

Rogers observed that when people first come in to see a counselor for treatment, they usually gave a reason, such as issues with a wife or a husband, or an employer, or with their own uncontrollable behavior. I choose to use the strong word "fear" here because I think does most justice to the gravity of this concept.This relates to a second hangup I had with Rogers’s model of the self, which is that he seems to equate increased fluidity and unpredictability of character with increased autonomy and freedom. Carl Rogers humanistic theory about freedom of choice proposed that Roger's clients could understand how to respond to situations. It is the people not in touch with all aspects of themselves that are the potential destroyers of the social fabric. Rogers acknowledged that a human’s behaviour is a factor stimulated by the tendencies of self-actualisation to work and accomplish the highest level of their achievement and potential.

In person-centered therapy, the therapist trusts the client's ability to handle their own problems and works as a compassionate facilitator. The fulfilled person, he believed, should come to accept themselves “as a stream of becoming, not a finished product.Non-technical in its language, it is not only for psychologists and psychiatrists, but for teachers and counsellors, religious and social workers, labour-management specialists and anyone interested in ‘becoming’. If that sounds like something every psychotherapist ever has said to you at least a couple of times, consider it Rogers’ fault.
