Rogers’ basic assumptions (regarding PCT) illustrate that individuals are innately good and trustworthy with a potential for changing their own lives as opposed to being directed or led by a therapist (Corey, 2009).
1.Therapist-Client Relationship: a relationship between client and therapist must exist, and it must be a relationship where each person’s perception of the other is important and valued.

2.Client vulnerability: incongruence exists between the client’s experience and awareness (the real versus the ideal). The client is vulnerable to anxiety which motivates them to stay in the relationship and work on themselves.

3.Therapist Congruence or Genuineness: the therapist is congruent within the therapeutic relationship and they can draw on their own experiences (self-disclosure) to enhance the relationship.

4.Therapist Unconditional Positive Regard: the therapist accepts the client unconditionally exactly as they are.

5.Therapist Empathic understanding: the therapist experiences an empathic understanding of the client’s own frame of reference. Accurate empathy on the part of the therapist helps the client to believe the therapist’s unconditional love for them.
