Integrative Counsellor

Looking for an Integrative Counsellor?

My name is Sue Brown and I am an Integrative Counsellor practicing in Canterbury & London.

Integrative Counsellor Services offer active listening, empathy, congruence and a non-judgemental experience.

Whilst working with clients, it is important to use specific models and interventions from different counselling modalities. The use of this service enables the client to address issues.

Experience of working with clients with depression, stress, anxiety, pre/post-natal anxieties, anger issues, loss, alcohol dependency, etc.

It is possible to offer clients the opportunity to have counselling sessions via the phone or Skype. In exceptional cases, a limited number of home visits may be possible, but this is to be discussed pre-sessions. The number of sessions are dependent on the needs of the client.

Integrative therapy is a progressive form of psychotherapy that combines different therapeutic tools and approaches to fit the needs of the individual client. With an understanding of normal human development, an integrative therapist modifies standard treatments to fill in development gaps that affect each client in different ways. By combining elements drawn from different schools of psychological theory and research, integrative therapy becomes a more flexible and inclusive approach to treatment than more traditional, singular forms of psychotherapy.

When It’s Used
Integrative counselling techniques can be incorporated into almost any type of therapeutic work with children, adolescents, and adults, in individual practice or group settings. An integrative approach can be used to treat any number of psychological problems and disorders, including depression, anxiety, and personality disorders. The therapist matches evidence-based treatments to each client and each disorder.

What to Expect
Integrative therapy is more inclusive of the client than traditional forms of therapy, where the client plays a less active role in treatment. Integrative counsellors consider the individual characteristics, preferences, needs, physical abilities, spiritual beliefs, and motivation level of their clients and use their professional judgment to decide the best approach to therapy for each client. Different approaches may be used consecutively throughout different stages of the therapeutic process or they may be used as a single combined form of therapy throughout.
