Psychotherapy helps with exploring thoughts and feelings we have about ourselves and other people, including family and those close to us and understanding our behaviour in relationship with others. Psychotherapy offers a deeper understanding, which provides fundamental changes, through finding the root of our distress and gaining a deeper understanding into the issues we are facing. Psychotherapy offers exploration with a wide range of mental health issues.
Developing a trusting relationship in psychotherapy is important and will help you to explore on a deeper level and talk about long-standing problems. This can take time. Depending on your reason for seeking psychotherapy and what you wish to gain, your sessions may need to last several months or years. Psychotherapy sessions are arranged weekly to enable holding, containing and to maintain a therapeutic relationship, which allows us to explore.
My approach within psychotherapy is to work through integration. Integrative psychotherapy includes exploring together at your pace how your environment from the past has shaped your present way of being. Within Integration we explore new ways of being in the present, that will allow you to be yourself and grow and live confidently. Integrative psychotherapy is also an integration of feeling, thought and behaviour.
As there are many approaches in psychotherapy that can help, Integrative psychotherapy allows for different approaches to be blended together to provide a therapy that feels a fit for you. Integrative psychotherapy entails different relational and developmental modalities/theories, which theories and modalities are blended depends on an individual’s experiences. The outcome of integration is to feel whole, content and find new ways of being that feel a fit for you. New ways of being, will bring about changes, improving your mental, emotional and often physical well-being.
