I have been trained to use Petruska Clarkson’s 5 stage model which incorporates Person-Centred, CBT and Psychodynamic Theory into a working model.
Integrative therapists take the view that there is no single approach that can treat each client in all situations. Each person needs to be considered as a whole and counselling techniques must be tailored to their individual needs and personal circumstances.
A key advantage of integrative counselling is its flexibility and focus on the whole of an individual. The integration of different approaches means therapy can be tailored to meet a variety of needs and concerns.
