Integral psychotherapy values core truths from every clinical orientation and embraces practices from all psychotherapeutic methods. Far from mere eclecticism, the result is a powerful and flexible system of comprehensive therapy.
Integral psychotherapy is itself an example of integral practice: it is designed to engage you physically, emotionally, cognitively and interpersonally.
Most therapies are used to concentrating on just one aspect, the personal interior; how the person feels about themselves, this approach is normally the sole area of traditional psychotherapy.
The integral approach looks at how an individual relates to the immediate outside world, to the group and culture within which they live.
Integral psychotherapy seeks to provide a sound assessment of some of the difficulties we all encounter as human beings, working from a model of human development that honours the interconnected dimensions of living in the world. These include biological, psychological, social and cultural aspects of being. Consideration is also given to the feminine and masculine aspects of life, such as those aspects which are self serving and those which relate to being of service to others
Integral supervision is based on a relational and multiple perspective model and is available to psychotherapists, counsellors, therapists and coach’s who work with clients across different modalities. This type of supervision provides an opportunity for practitioners to take new perspectives with themselves and their clients. As a therapist, integral supervision provides many opportunities where you can explore the dynamics of the therapeutic work, becoming clearer about the process you are engaged in.
Supervision also helps in developing new awareness and creativity and enhances the therapeutic effectiveness in the therapist client relationship. This work can be explored individually or within a supervisory group setting.
