Personal Construct Psychology

Personal Construct Psychology originates from the work of George Kelly in the 1950’s and has been developed by many other theorists and psychologists

Everyone holds key ideas and beliefs about themselves and the world that are uniquely

Necessarily involves

Accessing and understanding these constructs through talking and l

Listening to the meaning underpinning a person’s language within their



Conversations and

Opening up their awareness so that they can adapt and make

New constructs that

Support their learning, development and well being

The most important thing about this approach is that the ideas and strategies that

Result are grounded in the person’s real life and context and they can

Understand and be optimistic about the conditions for and possibilities of

Change and new

Thinking and acting
