What is Humanistic Therapy?
Humanistic Therapy focuses on the individual’s inner world, including their thoughts and feelings. The theory behind humanistic therapy emphasizes that people are born with certain innate needs and desires, such as belonging, self-esteem or personal growth. However, it also recognizes that these needs may not always be met by society or other people in our lives. Goals of humanistic therapy include self-actualization and self-awareness, where patients can become more aware of their problems and focus on personal growth more than finding solutions to them.
