Integrative therapy is an enhanced form of psychotherapy that combines different therapeutic tools and approaches to fit the needs of the individual. By combining elements drawn from different schools of psychological theory and research, I match evidence-based treatments to your personal needs. In this way, integrative therapy becomes a more flexible and inclusive approach to treatment than more traditional, singular forms of psychotherapy.
My technique is to consider your individual characteristics, preferences, needs, physical abilities, beliefs and motivational level in order to adopt a therapeutic approach that is tailored specifically to you, and can be adjusted as the therapeutic process develops.
I work principally within psychodynamic, person-centred parameters with a grounding in existentialism, and I am trained in CBT (Cognitive Behaviour Therapy) and REBT (Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapy), along with Prolonged Exposure Therapy for high trauma and PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder). I also work with two Emotional Support Dogs, and conduct sessions based around Equine Assisted Therapy.
