Integrative psychotherapy describes a psychotherapy approach in which elements from different schools of psychotherapy may be used. It involves selecting models and methods from across orientations to best suit a particular client and context.
Integrative Therapies offers a multidisciplinary approach to patient care in a friendly and comfortable environment. Integrative therapy is not seeking to change the person. It seeks to recall all the wholesome and healthy parts of the self and re-integrate them into the functional self. This is a uniquely individual process and, rather than changing you, it seeks to make you more you.
Benefits of Integrative Therapy
- It helps identify the causes of current concerns
- It helps to identify factors that perpetuate problems, and also help patients become aware of fears or hurts that limit their psychological freedom.
Practitioners in this field embrace an attitude towards the practice of psychotherapy that affirms the inherent value of each individual. It is a unifying psychotherapy that responds appropriately and effectively to the person at the emotional, behavioural, cognitive and physiological levels of functioning. The aim of integrative psychotherapy is to facilitate wholeness so that the quality of the person’s being and functioning in life is maximized with due regard for each individual’s own personal limited and external constraints.
