Executive

Coaching within organisations can be directed to various levels of organisational interaction and effectiveness. Organisational coaching is more frequently referred to as executive coaching. Coaching can be implemented at the group level or with an individual. The emphasis of coaching may differ significantly depending on which aspect of the organisation and who within the organisation is taking part.

At Integrative Psychology we use reliable and validated assessment measures to evaluate a variety of staff and organisational characteristics. Survey results can inform group level coaching or individual coaching.

The first step is to assess the functioning of the organisation overall and/or the sector within it that is being addressed. Organisational structures when functioning efficiently can promote high staff performance and staff satisfaction, a sense of commitment to the organisation and stability of working teams. Alternatively, frequent, poorly explained and non-negotiated change, limited staff development opportunities and poor management styles can result in staff anxiety, high absenteeism, high staff turnover, and bullying.

Specific areas that can be addressed by coaching include:

  • Change processes
  • Clarity of change process
  • Personality and experience matching for job roles and working partnerships
  • Support and feedback structures
  • Dispute resolution
Performance management:

  • Self-esteem
  • Goal setting and evaluation processes
  • Building competency
  • Anxiety management
Role of professional mentoring:

  • Training to be a mentor
  • Processes for suitable matching of staff to mentor
  • Development of learning objectives for mentoring experience
  • Effective and supportive feedback processes.

Counselling

We prioritise the use of effective psychological therapies in the context of a quality therapeutic relationship.

The relationship between you and the therapist involves being supported in an alliance focused on your healing and growth. The therapeutic relationship allows for the direct experience of a healthy relationship that promotes self-inquiry and exploration in a non-judgmental manner. The therapeutic relationship promotes self-understanding and relationship skills such as healthy boundary setting, assertion, self-esteem, and the capacity to give and receive care, while addressing the specific issues you wish to resolve.

At Integrative Psychology we provide counseling services for a wide range of issues including but not limited to:


Feel free to contact us if you have a particular request or issue you would like help with and we will do our best to match you with the right psychologist.

Family counselling (otherwise known as Family Therapy) involves a number of family members together attending counselling to address a range of issues, which can often be long standing. Family therapy can be directed at assisting a family to clarify and better manage relationships amongst family members as well as assisting families in dealing with major changes or distressing circumstances or events, such as grief and loss or mental or physical illness. Dealing with past family based trauma can also be a focus.

As with all therapies a counsellor is there to assist the individual, couple or family to gain their own clarity about a situation and develop better ways of managing that situation. The counsellor is not there to guide the individual or family members toward values or beliefs personally held by the counsellor. Counselling is non-judgemental and respectful at all times.

At Integrative Psychology our therapists are trained in a variety of approaches to assist with a range of relationships.

Group therapy can be a very effective way of overcoming feelings of isolation and hopelessness while facilitating change in a relatively short duration of time. Group therapy can differ according to length, size of group and criteria for inclusion. Groups may also differ in the degree of group participation required; generally therapeutic groups require greater group participation than psycho-education seminars and workshops. If you have any concerns about group participation please discuss these with the nominated contact person for the group you are considering, prior to registering for that group program.
