Integrative Psychotherapy

 

Integrative psychotherapy is not an approach in itself, rather it acknowledges that someone coming to therapy might require a combination of several different approaches in order to feel better.

An integrative therapist takes the view that there is not one single approach that will help the client in all situations, and that there are many different facets to a therapeutic problem – the cognitive, the behavioural, the relational, the emotional and the social.

 

Depending on the issue that is brought, the integrative therapist is able to work at the appropriate depth with a problem, for example a person suffering from anxiety might benefit from an exploration of their symptoms and the thoughts that surround and reinforce these, before moving onto a more in-depth exploration of their childhood experience.

 

Integrative therapy puts the client at the centre of the work and meets the client where they are, fitting the therapy to the client.
