Integrative therapy is a progressive form of psychotherapy that combines different therapeutic tools and approaches to fit the needs of the individual client. With an understanding of normal human development, an integrative therapist modifies standard treatments to fill in development gaps that affect each client in different ways. By combining elements drawn from different schools of psychological theory and research, integrative therapy becomes a more flexible and inclusive approach to treatment than more traditional, singular forms of psychotherapy.
What to Expect
After a brief discussion on the phone, we will arrange an initial, no-obligation, consultation session. The fee for this is £45.00. It’s an opportunity for us to meet, discuss your needs and goals of therapy and decide whether you feel I am the Counsellor for you and if you would like to work with me.
A parent or carer will be required to attend for part of this initial session for all young people under 18.
The sessions last a minimum of 50 minutes but typically we work for 1 hour.
What to Look for in an IntegrativeTherapist
I focus on helping people to reach their potential. As a therapist, I am gentle and kind but I’ll also be straight with you. I’m not a therapist who will just smile and nod along with whatever you say. I can help you understand more about yourself. There are training programs for integrative therapists, I trained at The Sherwood Psychotherapy Institute in Nottingham. I gained a BSc(Hons) Counselling and Psychotherapy.
