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
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.
