Person-Centred Experiential Counselling for Depression (PCE-CfD)




PCE-CfD is an innovative development in counselling and psychotherapy. It is one of the four, NICE approved, evidence-based additional modalities, licensed to be provided within NHS mental health services. PCE-CfD targets the emotional problems underlying depression along with the intrapersonal processes, such as low self-esteem and excessive self-criticism, which often maintain depressed mood. PCE-CfD therapy aims to help clients contact underlying feelings, make sense of them and reflect on the new meanings which emerge. This, in turn, provides the basis for psychological and behavioural change.
