The Person-Centred Counselling Approach

Some background on Person-Centred Counselling is given on the Person Centred Association's website - they represent the approach in the UK.

Carl Rogers was the first to describe the Person-Centred (or Client-Centred) way of being, now adopted in organisations and healthcare across the world today (though often not described in it's full subtlety and depth).

Emotionally Focused Therapy

Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy (EFCT) is a very well researched and written about approach to couples counselling, first developed back in the 1980s by Dr Sue Johnson. On the UK website there's further description and videos about EFT

A workshop for couples has been created called Hold me Tight, a relationship education programme that is experiential and interactive. It runs in the UK in various places, and there's also an online version of the workshop.

It's open to couples who are struggling in some way, or who want to deepen trust and intimacy within their relationship. It can be a prelude to couple therapy, but is not for couples in acute distress.
