Brings together Psychodynamic and Humanistic traditions. Central to this is the development of the personality during infancy. The potential development of the child is dependent on the environment that the child experiences from its care givers.

Each aspect of the individual’s personal development will be affected by the relationships with people and objects experienced by the child. The sense of self which emerges from childhood, be it healthy or psychologically problematic, is dependent on these relationships.

The client does not present himself to the counselling relationship in isolation. Within the therapeutic setting there are also the issues which the client brings from their present or recent-past relationships. The relationship between counsellor and client is a key aspect of this type of therapy.
