Integration Counselling

counselling & psychotherapy service

"Therapists practise in all walks of life and all parts of society, from NHS clinics to workplaces and education. They are trained to deal with a range of situations, helping people to cope with such issues as anxiety and bereavement, relationship difficulties, sexual and racial issues, child abuse and trauma, or personal problem solving.

Therapy offers a safe, confidential place to talk to a trained professional about your feelings and concerns. You might talk about difficult events in your life or your relationships and emotions. Or you might have negative thoughts and behaviours that you want to change. Therapists will not give you advice or solve your problems for you. They will listen to your story, helping you to understand yourself better and make positive changes in your life."

- British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy

Therapists

Integration counselling was set up by Imogen Nevard. She is an integratively trained therapist and registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy, with experience counselling in NHS, workplace and charity settings.

Making the decision to begin therapy can be difficult. As such, I offer an initial telephone consultation session so that you can find out more, and get an idea of how we would work together in a therapy context. I always endeavour to create a non-judgemental and welcoming space, where you can talk confidentiality in a supportive environment. Together we can explore any issues or difficulties you are facing, to enable you to create change in your life, and improve your mental and emotional wellbeing. If you have any questions or concerns, I am happy to discuss these over the phone to help you decide if therapy is right for you.

What is Integrative Counselling?

Integrative therapy, or integrative counselling is a combined approach to psychotherapy that brings together different elements of specific therapies. 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. My style of integrative counselling incorporates person-centered counselling, cognitive behavioural therapy, psychodynamic approaches and solution focussed models.

These tools and techniques are tailored to your style of learning and personal development, integrating affective, behavioural, cognitive, and physiological aspects of your psyche.
