Person-Centered Approach (PCA) and Client-Centered psychotherapy (CCT) are analyzed from standpoint of cultural-activity theory of Lev Vygotsky. It is shown that PCA may be understood as a cultural way of being in the world. PCA applies to main features of culture and may be seen as a developing subculture in complex human culture. CCT is analyzed as a cultural psychotechnical system from positions of psychotechnical approach as a modern development of cultural-activity theory. It is shown that change of a client in the CCT goes in accord with laws of development of higher psychological formations and CCT is a cultural professional psychotechnical system, aimed at facilitating of personal growth, actualizing and well-being of the person.
