A Person Centred Counsellor is the latest release from Counselling DVDs.

In 2000 Norma James, already a highly experienced therapist with many years of practice behind her, made the decision to work only from a Person Centred perspective. In this video she demonstrates her practice and talks about her understanding of the approach.

The DVD consists a 55 minute unscripted session in which the client - in reality a colleague of Norma’s - works with real material. This is followed by two short debrief sessions conducted by Mike Simmons in which he talks to both the counsellor and client about the session and then a 33 minute interview in which Mike talks to Norma about the Person Centred Approach.

This DVD  provides a rare opportunity to see a real counselling session, unscripted, unplanned, just as it happened.
