dc.description.abstractTraditionally in Person-centred Therapy (PCT) clients are counselled for as long as required. It is a non-directive process. Recently, financial constraints have introduced time limits for therapy in health care, so it seemed appropriate to revisit the practice of PCT in the current UK context. The aim was to explore the concepts of learning and change within PCT and to consider whether learning is facilitated. Five experienced person-centred therapists, who were involved in educating therapists, participated in semi-structured interviews. Questions explored their views on learning and change in therapy, whether learning processes can be facilitated in PCT - both philosophically and practically, and the outcomes of PCT. Therapists were not specifically asked about time pressure but rather it was left to see if it emerged as an issue. Ten major themes emerged; learning and change, goals, learning process, PCT process, issues on non-directivity, questioning, outcomes, assessment and diagnosis, and other methods used. The issue of time pressure permeated many of these themes. Views were often contradictory reflecting the inconclusive views in the literature, particularly in relation to how clients learn and the relationship between change and learning.en_US
