    Discuss Client-Centered therapy (humanistic)

    I grew up in a home with a lot of abuse, mostly I sat and was made to watch my step dad, beat my mom and my brother and 3 sisters, I am the youngest of the 5 of us. I had great regret for not being able to do any thing, (I was 3 years old when this had started) however, when I became a teenager, I did many drugs to hide the pain of being molested and raped as a child as well.

Could you help me using Client-Centered therapy and how?
