Some issues that can be helped with Integrative Counselling/Psychotherapy
“There are many ways of getting strong, sometimes talking is the best way”
In Integrative Counselling various different types of models of counselling are used. Usually the therapist will be trained in one method of counselling, although some therapists will have gained their qualification in the Integrative Model. The therapist will then go on and train in other techniques and will combine these techniques depending on the need of their client, so the therapy is tailored to the client’s needs and not vice versa. In short, an integrative approach draws on different schools of thought and different therapeutic tools to best serve the client’s needs.
This type of therapy is usually open ended, i.e. it is not for a pre-determined time, however it can also be used in a time limited way, for example, a twelve week period. Sessions are held once a week for 50 minutes although the initial assessment may take up to one and half hours.
