A person-centered therapist is a therapist that uses a non-authoritative technique or approach in counseling clients. This technique allows and encourages clients or patients to take the lead role during counseling and discussions, enabling them to discover on their own, solutions that can help them understand their problems through self-actualization.

Person-centered therapy takes on a humanistic approach that centers on the idea that individuals can better perceive themselves more clearly rather than a counselor interpreting unconscious thoughts. This type of therapeutic approach was developed by the American psychologist named Carl Rogers in the 1950’s.
