Integrative therapy draws on many theoretical perspectives and models of counselling, integrating knowledge and skills according to what is needed.
I do not believe in a “one-model or theory fits all” approach because we are all different and no two people are going to think, feel and behave the same.
A one-model approach is limiting to all the possibilities open to you. By integrating different approaches I can be flexible and go with the flow and energy that you bring to each counselling appointment.
I have trained and studied extensively in the following theoretical models which inform my approach to my work.
- Personal Centred Counselling
- Humanistic Therapy
- Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
- Psychodynamic Theory and Counselling
- Rational Emotive Behavioural Therapy
- Art Therapy
- Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy
- Meditation for Stress Reduction
- Rewind Therapy
- Inner Child Therapy
Many GPs recommend Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) which is the NHS preferred treatment option. I love working with CBT and will be happy to talk to you about whether CBT will be a good option for you.
If you are particularly interested in a specific approach then please contact me to discuss.
