What is integrative therapy?
Integrative therapy is a flexible form of psychotherapy in which the exact method is tailored individually to you. It is a pragmatic, solution-based approach which combines different therapeutic tools and techniques to fit your needs.
In that case, one idea might be to look for someone with a broader range of skills and approaches, which puts them in a better position to tackle a wide range of problems. That being said, integrative therapy has also proved to be very helpful for more specific or longer-term issues, from relationships, grief and anger management to trauma or habits or addictions. We can also explore topics such as self-esteem, unfinished business, negative automatic thoughts and defence mechanisms like denial, projection, avoidance or self-sabotage.
It brings together a person’s emotional, cognitive, behavioural and physiological systems while also considering the social and transpersonal aspects of their lives. It can draw on a wide range of approaches, including but not limited to psychdynamic, psychoanalytical psychology, client-centred counselling, CBT, family therapy, mindfulness and hypnotherapy.
Integrative therapy is the way forward if you are unsure what type of therapy you want.
