what is integrative counselling?
Think of it as a ‘pick ‘n’ mix’. My skill as an integrative practitioner is in responding to your individual needs and preferences, tailoring our work from a range of approaches.
Quite simply, rather than expecting the client to adapt to fit the therapy, I adapt the therapy to fit the client. I have trained in a number of theoretical approaches to enable me to work this way, as I really believe we should all be respected and valued as individuals.
You, your life events and how you experience their impact, are entirely unique and so should your therapy be.
Whatever you bring to counselling is the starting point for our work. I will meet you wherever you are on your journey and, together, we can travel at your pace, creating a vehicle for exploration, hope, empowerment and change.
As you travel your therapeutic journey your needs may evolve. You may wish to change direction, pace or focus.
Working integratively gives us the freedom to adapt and respond to your precise needs, at any given time.
No single, rigid approach can address the emotional, social, physical and psychological needs of each individual.
In integrative counselling we weave together a therapy that acknowledges, respects and responds to your life experiences.
