Tools & Techniques

Within the framework of a Feminist, Relational-Cultural orientation, I draw evidence based therapeutic approaches to offer an integrative and fluid approach in my work with clients.

My reasoning for developing an integrative approach rests on the following:

  • Human beings are not static but rather, dynamic and always changing.
  • I believe that no single approach or method is able to fully address the diversity and complexity of human nature.
  • Using a single approach or method does not honour the unique characteristics of the individual nor does it take into account individual needs and preferences.
  • Using a single approach may not fully address a client’s therapeutic goals for counselling.
  • Relying on a single approach or method may not support the many factors that contribute, influence and, support the therapeutic alliance
  • Recent research suggests that an integrative approach to counselling is cost effective and helps clients achieve their therapeutic goals quicker.
  • There is a growing consensus that many psychotherapeutic approaches share common factors associated with positive client outcomes.
