Psychotherapy has developed from an array of therapeutic models.
Research has not found any one of these to work any better than the others.
As an integrative therapist I draw on a wide range of approaches and techniques in my therapy work with clients.
In my experience, the relationship that developed between us, has proven more influential on the outcome than any theoretical intervention.
In my opinion, real therapy is about connection.
I am looking to connect, in order to create a calm and safe therapeutic space.
A colleague once remarked in conversation that “clients may not always remember, what therapists say or do, but they will always remember how they made them feel.
― Carl R. Rogers
Some of the theoretical models that I draw from are listed below.
Cognitive behavioral therapy.
I also draw upon practicing Mindfulness, meditation, breath work and visualization.
“Let go of your mind and then be mindful.
Close your ears and listen!”
