As an integrative therapist I offer a range of therapeutic approaches to suit the needs of my clients. These include;
Integrative counselling means drawing on, and blending specific types of therapies. This approach is not linked to one particular type of therapy as integrative counselling practitioners do not believe that only one approach works for each client in all situations.
Person Centred Therapy
Person-Centred Counselling focuses on an individual’s self worth and values. Being valued as a person, without being judged, can help an individual to accept who they are, and reconnect with themselves.
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) combines cognitive and behavioural therapies. The approach focuses on thoughts, emotions, physical feelings and actions, and teaches clients how each one can have an effect on the other. CBT is useful for dealing with a number of issues, including depression, anxiety and phobias.
Psychodynamic Therapy evolved from Psychoanalytic Therapy and seeks to discover how unconscious thoughts affect current behaviour. Psychodynamic Therapy usually focuses on more immediate problems and attempts to provide a quicker solution.
Existential Therapy focuses on exploring the meaning of certain issues through a philosophical perspective, instead of a technique-based approach.
