Our Approach

Non-Directive Therapy

Non-directive therapy, also known as person-centered therapy, is an approach to therapy that places the client at the center of the therapeutic process. It refers to the collaboration between counsellor and client within the therapeutic space. Specifically, the counsellor’s role is to establish an encouraging atmosphere and clarify the client's ideas rather than direct the process. The client leads the way by expressing their own feelings, defining their own problems, and interpreting their own behaviour. This leads to sessions with the counsellor mainly offering reflection and reframing to develop the client’s self-awareness and improve their emotional well-being.

The benefit of this encourages the removal of ‘ableism’ within the therapeutic space. Therefore, the therapy on offer is accepting of the client’s whole self, with the understanding and acceptance of neurodiversity without therapeutic limitations.
