What is Integrative Psychotherapy?
It is a form of therapy that incorporates different psychotherapeutic approaches and the various tools that each have to offer to you.
The main idea behind Integrative Psychotherapy is that you are unique and what might work perfectly for you does not necessarily mean it works for others. Therefore, the therapist works to create a personalized intergrated model of therapy using mainly psychodynamic, person-centered and existential theory, as well as various techniques and skills from other approaches that suit your personal needs and issues.
What is the goal of Integrative Psychotherapy?
All people are gifted with inner wisdom.
Each of us knows deep inside what is best for them. The role of the therapist lies in helping the patient to find the answers one is looking for, to shed light along the way.
Anxiety, sadness, fear and all the hard to face feelings are those that put people in a position to ask for help and thus get to know themselves better.
As a result, you function better in all aspects of your life – mental, emotional and physical. Integrative Psychotherapy is all about integrating yourself, and all parts of your personality and your being, into a balanced and effective whole.
At first it is necessary for the person to understand what is happening to them. In order for change to occur, it takes time and commitment.
