The client (or student-centered) approach was first introduced by Carl Rogers. It involves helping your client /student discover that the answers lie within them. It is your job to provide your students with the resources, tool, and inquiry questions and guidance for them to discover and access that information.  

Are you looking at this approach for psychotherapy, school counseling/education, or organizational development?  The basis is the same-although applications will vary depending on your client (audience).
