I follow a Person-Centred approach. which means that I am genuine towards the client, avoid judgement and provide respect and empathy. The client is central in the process in which I act only as a facilitator.
I can listen while acting as a mirror for the client, reformulating their story as I understand it, and sometimes gently challenge the client.
I create a supportive environment that allows the client to experience personal growth. I strive to form a close, more personal relationship with the client which favours trust.
I also use some integrative techniques such as elements of positive psychology, projective cards, stress reducing techniques and nature walks.
The Person-Centred approach was introduced by Carl Rogers, and is also known as humanistic or Rogerian. Watch this video for a short explanation by Carl Rogers himself:
