Integrative Psychotherapy

Psychotherapy is a means of understanding and processing experiences that leave you feeling confused, alienated and disempowered.

Reality is not so much about a series of events that happen to us but more about our experiencing and living of these events. We cannot change events in the past but we can change our experiencing and understanding of them. Exploring the potential in our relationships to self and other is part of the process of opening up to the enquiry of how we can effect transformation through present moment experiencing .

Focussing through 'felt experiencing' and 'felt sense' enables the therapist and the client to access our inward bodily responses to a direct experience of a present moment. The therapeutic work begins with increasing awareness of our felt and thought processes. In becoming more aware of the present moment, we begin to experience the process of becoming more alive to what is means to be human. This includes arriving at the realisation that we have the capacity to make different choices in life.

People come to psychotherapy for different reasons. They could be going through one of the following states.

    Depression, fears and anxieties

    A personal or existential crisis or major life change

    Relationship problems, bereavement

Or more subtle issues such as:

    Feelings blocked or stuck

    Feelings of emptiness and wishing to enquire more deeply into life experiences

    Feelings of being cut-off, isolated or alienated
