What is the advantage of Integrative Therapy?

As an Integrative therapist, I believe your personality, life experiences, and the issues you face are unique to you. 

 

Using multiple approaches ensures therapy matches you all round.

Research shows when therapy matches you, it is more effective and twice as many people complete therapy.

4 key points

1. More perspectives

With more ways to approach therapy,

there are more opportunities to find change.

2. Matches how you're feeling

You may feel motivated for a challenge one day,

but another day just feel like venting and being heard. 

Work at your level and have sessions that feel productive every time.

3. Always the best approach

Your issue may have many aspects to it - emotions, relationships,

thought patterns, past experiences, meaning in life, and others.

Rather than trying to cover all issues with one approach,

we can use the best suited approach for each issue.

4. Tailored to you

Using multiple approaches allows us to tailor therapy to you. 

When therapy is tailored to you, it is more effective and 

twice as many people complete it successfully.

My approaches

Person Centred

How would it feel to finally be understood from your point of view?

 

By feeling completely accepted in your most vulnerable moments, it can be profoundly freeing.

Emotion-Focused

Is it exhausting keeping on top of your emotions? Do they feel unacceptable?

When your emotions are too strong or blocked out, we can't hear the valuable information they hold - they indicate your primary needs.

By regulating your emotions, we can hear and address your needs - then the grip they have on your life is released.

Psychodynamic

Do you keep facing the same issues, over and over?

Deep rooted feelings from your past can influence how you live your present life, often without you realising.

 

By understanding patterns in your life, including patterns in therapy, we can uncover your subconscious experiences, and discover new ways to approach life.

Existential

Uncertainty, choice, responsibility, death, freedom, isolation, and meaninglessness are all existential issues. They influence everything in life.

 

This approach helps you tolerate the anxiety of these issues, and work with them productively.

Self Psychology

As a child, did you feel understood and approved of? Did you feel like you belonged somewhere or had a role model?

Was it enough?

Our connection in therapy can be a corrective experience, giving you what you missed out on – an attentive and caring person that gets to your level and makes you feel important.

Neurobiology

The latest research in Interpersonal Neurobiology informs all of my work.

This includes how to work with traumatic memories without them overwhelming you, and how to stimulate new neural connections in therapy to promote integration of all your brain systems.
