Integrative Therapy explained
There is not a ‘one size fits all’ approach to therapy. We are all shaped by differing experiences of the world. For this reason, some methods of therapy may be effective for some, but not so effective for others.
Integrative therapy combines a variety of therapeutic techniques and approaches. In doing so, this crafts a bespoke service which tailors around the clients specific needs and circumstances.
Integrative therapy takes into account personality, confidence as well as what is manageable and achievable. In doing so, this ensures the best possible service can be given to clients.
Integrative therapy is popular as it can help with a huge variety of mental health issues and is tailored around your circumstances.
