Nondirective Counseling

Nondirective counseling is also known as client-centered therapy, nondirective counseling, nondirective therapy, person-centered therapy, or Rogerian therapy.

In this approach, the counselor does not give judgements on the information being put forth by the client and avoids offering advices or directions. This method was developed by Carl Rogers, an American psychologist and one of the founders of humanistic perspective of psychology. Nondirective counseling helps the client take personal responsibility for his own issues as well as encourages him by giving him the time, empathy, and non-judgmental atmosphere to think through the issues being talked about.
