Humanistic approaches are also known as phenomenological, person-centred, client-centred, non-directive and facilitative. Phenomenological therapy focuses on the wholeness of experience and emphasises the searching for personal meanings and essences of experience. Behaviour and events are explored only from the point of view of the client. Therapy is not concerned with theory-driven interpretations of hidden or unconscious emotional dynamics or with quantitative measurements of behaviour.
