Self-Acceptance Treatments

Person-Centered therapy is a humanistic, client-centered approach used by Green Path Psychiatric Nursing Practitioner services to help individuals gain greater self-awareness and achieve personal growth and fulfillment.

In this approach, the psychiatric nurse practitioner creates a warm, non-judgmental, and accepting therapeutic environment in which the patient can feel safe to explore their thoughts, feelings, and experiences. The focus of the therapy is on the patient's subjective experience and the unique meaning they attribute to their experiences.

Person-Centered therapy emphasizes the importance of the therapeutic relationship and the role of the nurse practitioner as a facilitator of the patient's growth and self-discovery. The nurse practitioner listens attentively, provides empathic responses, and encourages the patient to explore their own thoughts and emotions.

The approach is non-directive and non-judgmental, with the nurse practitioner serving as a supportive and non-judgmental guide, helping the patient to gain insight and awareness into their own experiences, feelings, and behaviors. The patient is encouraged to take an active role in the therapy, working collaboratively with the nurse practitioner to identify goals and develop strategies for achieving them.


Ultimately, the goal of Person-Centered therapy is to help patients develop a greater sense of self-acceptance, self-awareness, and self-efficacy, and to make positive changes in their lives based on their own values and goals.
