What is Humanistic and Integrative Psychotherapy?
Central to 'Humanistic Psychotherapy' is the recognition, respect and valuing of every person as an individual. It provides a solid framework from which to address and heal some of the deepest wounds and traumas experienced throughout life, in order for personal growth to develop and change to occur.
The term 'Integrative' simply means that I draw on a selection of therapeutic models when working alongside clients.
This allows our work together to develop in a way to ' fit' your needs and experiences, rather than focus on a pre-determined framework.
Personal influences and therapeutic focus includes theoretical perspective from the Humanistic, Dialogic, Psychodynamic, Relational and Intersubjective approaches. I am also interested in Body or Somatic Psychotherapy which helps focus on body process and the wealth of internal communication that influences and impacts our psyche, and vice versa.
One of the ways in which Psychotherapy can be helpful is in its regularity. Our sessions would be 50 minutes in length and we would meet weekly at a day and time, which is mutually agreeable.
