WHAT IS INTEGRATIVE COUNSELLING?
The BACP describes counselling and psychotherapy as "umbrella terms that cover a range of talking therapies. They are delivered by trained practitioners who work with people over a short or long term to help them bring about effective change or enhance their wellbeing".
Integrative counselling is a combined approach by using a variety of different psychotherapeutic theory instead of using one modality.
Unlike singular forms of psychotherapy, an integration of different approaches means therapy can be personalised to meet a variety of concerns and needs which provides a more flexible and inclusive approach to treatment.
Integrative therapists take the view that there is no single approach that can treat each client in all situations. I draw upon Person Centred, Cognitive Behavioural and Psychodynamic therapies when working with clients.
Integrative therapy focuses on the individual as a whole and takes into account physical, social and emotional aspects. A range of techniques are used to explore all parts of the client’s mind and body. Only evidenced based theories and techniques are used to create a unique plan that responds to each client’s needs.
The therapy pays particular attention to effective, behavioural, cognitive and physiological levels of functioning.
While working in therapy an integrative approach can bring about positive changes over time.
When knowledge and understanding has been gained around the reasons for seeking therapy we can discuss how we may work together.
