The person-centered therapeutic approach of Carl Rogers introduced a new insight to the counseling way as it placed a significance to patients’ ability to promote self-directed growth with a help from a genuine and empathetic counselor who could provide unconditional positive regard and acceptance to patients (Corey, 2017). The following section provides five examples of patient-counselor dialogue where a mental health counselor applies person-centered approach to the patient. Client comment 1: "I have no idea what to do, and I hope you can tell me." I feel a sense of urgency in what you are saying. I understand that you wish somebody could tell you what to do and help find an answer that you are looking for but I am not in the position to provide you with the solution because only you that understand your situation better than anybody else. Client comment 2: "My mother thinks I'm making the wrong decision and that makes me so angry. She is always trying to control me."
