Therapeutic Approach - Integrative Psychotherapy

I am an integratively trained therapist which means I am not restricted to one style of therapy but facilitate a blend of accepted methods and interventions and these are integrated.  Listed below are some of the styles I draw upon to promote the development of personal identity,  authenticity, emotional balance and tackle or manage mental health issues. If you would like to read what The Counselling Society says about Integrative Therapy then click here >

Psychodynamic Therapy

Seeks to discover how unconscious thoughts affect current behaviour and these are usually formed in childhood.

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.

Existential Therapy

Existential Therapy is a philisophical type of therapy based on the idea that much of human anxiety and distress is based on our inability to accept our mortality.

This involves living with life's paradox's rather than focussing on personal pathology and is based around humnan existence as it is.

Parts (Psychological)
Therapy

Parts Psychology is a way of understanding the mind and is based on the idea that the normal personality is made up of parts or sub-personalities.
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)

Intra-Personal Therapy

...is about the structure of personal consciousness and in therapy this exploration and understanding is key to developing an authentic relationship with oneself, as we are generally so much more than the sum of our parts.

Transpersonal & Psychosynthesis Approaches

The word “transpersonal” loosely translates to beyond the self and so beyond the physical realm.  It is a type of therapy that focus's on the health of a person’s spirit.


Psychosynthesis works to uncover a person's inner wisdom, focussing on the exploration of feelings, thoughts, sensations and spirit in order to uncover any internal conflicts and blocks.

Humanistic Therapies

Humanistic Therapies is the umbrella term that involves some of the following three therapy styles. Its main aim is to work with the whole person as a complete being.

Gestalt Therapy


This type of therapy emphasizes personal responsibility, and focuses upon the individual's experience in the present moment, the relationship in therapy, the environmental and social contexts of a person's life, and the self-regulating adjustments people make as a result of their overall situation.

Transactional Analysis &
Inter-personal Therapy

If you are struggling with how other people in your life are making you feel then therapy around relationships and your functionning in them and how others affect you can help make necessary changes to your stress levels.

These approaches also aim to identify patterns that are operating within, often unconsciously which can cause difficulties in life.

Person Centered Therapy

This style is based on the idea that each person has within them the skill to heal in their own way and so allows the person to lead in their own therapy.

It is based very much in reality and works by facilitating a therapeutic environment which allows a persons inner drives to direct healing.

Jungian Therapy

This psychoanalytical approach aims to bring into balance the parts of a person's psyche which are conscious and unconscious.

This enables a person to understand how these part of themselves influence their life and the living of it.

As a whole this type of work explores the psychological parts of us that makes us specifically the human-being.

Mindfulness-based CBT

Mindfulness Cognitive Behavioural Therapy joins up your thinking, feelings, behaviours and focus's the changes you need to make to cope with life and life's difficulties and challenges. 



Rational Emotive Behavioural Therapy

REBT aims to address irrational thoughts, assumptions and beliefs that are leading to ways of living that might be causing issues in a persons life.

This approach is often seen as a deeper level of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy.

Hypnotherapy

Alongside physical and emotional intervention, hypnotherapy and meditation start to tackle the mind and it's tendancy to ruminate, worry and think irrationally. 

These practices enable people to access their emotional areas in a safe way which helps self understanding.

Eco-Therapy & Darwinian Psychotherapy

Eco-Therapy
I sometimes use the ideas from Eco-Therapy style to inform some of my Psychotherapy and at times myself and clients have taken sessions outdoors or taken part in community activites.

Darwinian Therapy
This approach incorporates evolutionary explanations for psychological, emotional, inter-personal and behavioural issues and tendancies.This has a link with Cognitive Behavioural Therapy.

Relationship Therapy

Therapy around intimate and romantic relationships is a very common part of psychotherapy as a whole.

Our closest relationships with partners play a large part in our sense of well-being and it is important to get these as healthy as possible.


Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT)

DBT is a specially design therapy that is particularly suitable to support particular conditions such as personality disorders, mood disorders, eating disorders, self-injury, sexual abuse survivors and brain injury.  It aims to help those who experience intense emotions that they find difficult to stabilise and works to help a person achieve balance.


Reflexology

Sometimes, physical intervention is needed to intercept the cycle of stress problems. 

Many health therapies can improve physical symptoms such as stress related headaches, insomnia, high BP, skin conditions, ISB and skin conditions.

Nutrition


Counselling and Psychotherapy around nutrition with me supports a person with ailments and conditions and is complementary to any medicial management a person is receiving.  Often problems with over eating subside after full psychotherapy where it deals with deep emotions and processing.

Complementary Therapy & Alternative Medicine

I encourage  Complementary Therapies and people can access by way of referal, the best physical intervention to suit them.  I am in contact with many local therapists and practitioners.

The types of therapies could include Massage, Reiki, Reflexology, Lymphatic Drainage, Osteopahty, Homeopathy, Accupuncture and Chiropractice

Stress Reduction for supporting Physical Conditions or Chronic Illness

Some of the physical issues I have worked to support include: Irritable Bowel (IBS), Insomnia, Headaches & Migraine, general aches and pains, hormonal problems, Fybromyalgia, Cancer, Amputation, Terminal Illness.
