Although a vast amount of different therapies exist, sometimes it can be limiting for both the patient and the therapist to stick to one type. Integrative Therapy accounts for the fact that disorders and other issues look different in every patient. It allows for a therapist to adjust the treatment to best fit their patient by using a variety of techniques.
What is Integrative Therapy?
Integrative Therapy is a movement within psychotherapy that promotes the idea that treating a disorder is not always so black and white. It combines different therapeutic techniques in order to best suit the patient. Therapists fill in the gaps with other approaches where the original treatment might be lacking. For example, a therapist may use both Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Psychodynamic Therapy to adjust behavioural issues.
What issues might Integrative Therapy be used for?
Due to its flexibility, Integrative Therapy can be used to treat many different psychological issues, such as personality disorders, anxiety, depression, addiction, etc.
What are the benefits of Integrative Therapy?
The patient and the therapist are given the freedom to work together to find the different techniques and strategies that work best. Here at The Blue Tree Clinic, we are open to integrating different types of therapy into your treatment, as our therapists are well-versed in many therapy types.
