Therapeutic Approach - Integrative Psychotherapy
Understanding how one came to be the way that we are can go a long way towards the self understanding that gives a person authenticity. The techniques which can be used can be free association, interpretation, and transference.
This involves living with life's paradox's rather than focussing on personal pathology and is based around humnan existence as it is.
During therapy the parts can be accessed using specific techniques during the session and tensions, emotions, internal conflicts and trauma can be eased or integrated helping a person feel more balanced. (This is not the same as the Parts therapy as used in some Hypnosis)
