Carl Rogers Sketch - Famous Psychotherapists

Sketch of Carl Rogers of client centred therapy - famous psychotherapists

Carl Rogers was one of the founders of the humanistic / client centred approach to psychotherapy.
He stressed that the client is the expert on themselves. He also believed in the importance of unconditional positive regard and empathy. Two concepts that I very much feel are crucial to the success of therapy.

Interestingly, Rogers also has a connection to Ireland in that he had some involvements in workshops with regards the troubles in Ireland, and he was later nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize as a result.
