Here at Integrated Therapy, I’m dedicated to helping you improve your overall mental health and help you lead a better life. Aa a therapist I have years of experience in helping people make positive changes to their lives by using methods that are suitable for each person in order to achieve the best results possible.
One of the methods that we use is Psychotherapy which is the treatment of different mental disorders connected to things such as eating, personality, addiction, anxiety, abuse, sleep, etc. that are hindering people from having a stable and healthy mind. It is also used in things such as recovering from traumatic experiences, coping up with the loss of a loved one, building a healthier relationship, dealing with stress, and transitioning to another stage in life.
The purpose of Psychotherapy is to set people free. A quote by Rollo May. This for me embodies why psychotherapy offers so many routes to helping us take control of our minds and our lives.

What Is Psychotherapy?
Psychotherapy is a type of Psychological treatment that aims to shift a person’s thoughts, feelings, and behaviours. It teaches people different ways to help them deal with the issues in their life that they’ve been avoiding or having a hard time dealing with. Through Psychotherapy, a person can experience the feeling of discomfort slowly leaving them as they learn new methods of coping up with their life issues.

Types Of Psychotherapy
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) is a psychological treatment applied to treat numerous mental disorders. It is aimed at modifying a person’s harmful or negative thoughts, feelings, and behaviours.
The psychotherapist uses conversation as a method to create a safe and trusting environment. With this, two of the three stages of cognitive behavioural therapy are developed which is evaluation and treatment. The third phase is the follow-up.
Overall, cognitive behavioural therapy can be interpreted as a combination of a thought-process stimulating therapy with a behaviour-oriented approach that responds to those thoughts.
Integrative psychotherapy is a type of treatment that takes into account the unification of the affective, cognitive, behavioural and psychological aspects of a person so that they can be properly developed in order to help a person meet some of their needs and solve some of their problems in life.
This type of psychotherapy starts from the premise that since we are born, our mind is affected by certain difficulties as life progress which eventually ends up creating problems. These difficulties eventually make us lose contact with ourselves and is the cause of psychological issues.
Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapy (REBT)
Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapy (REBT) is the oldest and first form of cognitive behavioural therapy, founded in 1955 by Albert Ellis. REBT is characterised above all by its strong philosophical reference. REBT is a holistic, action-oriented psychotherapy approach with the goal of emotional growth: we are encouraged to consciously experience and express our feelings, emphasising the connection between thinking, feeling and acting.
The main goal of the REBT is the profound change in attitudes towards the philosophy of life through:
- overcome emotional stress and interpersonal problems,
- use the available personal energy creatively,
- to shape one’s life in daily work and in the personal sphere with more satisfaction, success and fulfilment.
We humans tend to put undue psychological stress on ourselves when
- something goes wrong or we are rejected by someone important to us,
- other people treat us unfairly (intentionally or unintentionally),
- we are faced with things that are uncomfortable or painful.
As we learn to change our self-harming attitudes, we develop greater abilities to deal with current problems and lead freer, more independent, and emotionally more satisfying lives.
Psychotherapy In Action
Psychotherapy provides an environment for a person to feel supported as they speak openly with a therapist who is in a neutral and non-objective position. You and your therapist will work together to identify and improve the behaviour patterns that are keeping you from achieving your best self.
How can Psychotherapy help?
Psychotherapy can help you manage your emotions effectively and successfully. In the same way, it can offer you tools to face problems, difficulties, and day-to-day stress. In psychotherapy sessions, you can learn problem-solving techniques that can help you overcome stress, anxiety, frustrations, and worries so that you can achieve your goals.
Our therapist will use an approach that’s unique to you. Their aim is to equip you with skills that can help you overcome your problems and promote confidence in your capability to overcome the current issues that you’re facing as well as those that are yet to come.
