Integrative Psychotherapy

Integrative Psychotherapy takes into account many views of human functioning. The psychodynamic, client-centered, behaviorist, cognitive, family therapy, Gestalt therapy, body-psychotherapies, object relations theories, psychoanalytic self psychology, and transactional analysis approaches are all considered within a dynamic systems perspective. Each provides a partial explanation of behaviour and each is enhanced when selectively integrated with other aspects of the therapist's approach. The psychotherapy interventions used in Integrative Psychotherapy are based on developmental research and theories describing the self-protective (and initially helpful) behaviours that people adopt and develop when they are faced with very early childhood problems and dilemmas as a way to survive. The aim of an integrative psychotherapy is to facilitate wholeness such that the quality of the person's being and functioning is optimised with regard and respect for each individual's own personal limits and external constraints.

Our therapists all have their own individual therapeutic style taking and integrative approach. All are fully qualified and are full members of the BACP, adhering to their ethical and professional guidelines. For full details go to the Our therapists page.
