Integrative Therapy

Integrative therapy recognises that each individual is different and therefore it may be helpful for a psychologist to draw on more than one therapeutic approach in order to meet the individual needs of each client.

There is research to suggest that the therapeutic relationship between the client and the therapist has the most positive influence on the outcome of therapy. As a counselling psychologist, the relationship is an important part of therapy and I integrate various skills from cognitive behavioural therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, mindfulness and other tools to help clients find the tools that are most beneficial for them.

What to expect?

Your psychologist’s role is to help you explore and make sense of the challenges you face. This may involve working with difficult emotions, as well as identifying and addressing unhelpful thinking and behaviour patterns. We will work together towards finding ways of making your life more fulfilling.   This will include problem solving around existing coping strategies or learning new ones, addressing issues of self-esteem, self-confidence and anxiety. 

Occasionally people say, ‘I know these things already’ we might know the information, however, we have to spend time thinking about if we are using and practicing the skills we know. If not, we can reflect on the barriers together.
