What is integrative psychotherapy?

Everyone deserves to be supported in a unique way and I work by adapting my therapeutic approach to suit your needs and requirements. Integrative psychotherapy incorporates several different perspectives of human psychology. It takes into account that each person is unique, with their own experiences, emotions, feelings and approach to life.

My role is to facilitate your self-reflection, in order that you can gain greater self-awareness and insight. Therapy is a uniquely individual process, one that can be empowering and enlightening. It is also a collaborative process, whereby we will work together and regularly review your therapeutic progress.

As an integrative practitioner, I provide each client with the approach best suited to their individual needs. I work within a multi-dimensional model, merging together various psychotherapeutic approaches and combining specific effective elements from each. These approaches include mixing core beliefs and combining proven techniques.

My theoretical stance is primarily from a Client-Centred, Humanistic perspective; I also integrate techniques from Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Psychodynamic, Gestalt, Solution-Focused Therapy, Rational Emotive Behavioural Therapy (REBT), Mindfulness and other schools of psychotherapy.
