UNDERSTANDING

Integrated Psychotherapy

An integrated approach to psychological therapy avoids dogma, recognising that there is no one overriding truth or ‘best’ psychotherapy. Rather, what exists are many truths, which have have greater or lesser relevance to each client, depending on their particular problems and what they are seeking to achieve in the therapeutic process.

House Psychotherapists are trained in a range of therapeutic approaches, allowing them to adapt the psychotherapy experience to meet your particular issues. Rather than trying to match the client to a therapy, we’d much rather match psychotherapy to the client.
