This study employed a practice-based quantitative design to explore therapeutic gains in adult counseling clients attending person-centered therapy. The therapy sessions were delivered in a charitable, community-based UK service.
The treatment observed showed that clients’ symptoms of anxiety and depression significantly decreased as measured by GAD-7 and PHQ-9, from the initial assessment, the first ongoing session, and towards the last (or 6th) ongoing appointment. These effective results were equivalent to other therapies reviewed in the literature.
Overall, this study showcased how person-centered therapy can significantly improve the lives of many adults struggling with anxiety and depression.
