Personal

Personal coaching (otherwise referred to as life coaching) can assist with identifying and promoting change in a range of personal domains of life. Examples of life domains in which we may want to create change include:

  • Career
  • Social
  • Romantic
  • Health and weight
  • Financia
  • Humanitarian.
Coaching can assist with feeling that life in general or a specific part of one’s life has become stagnant, somewhat meaningless. Coaching can help when we feel we need a change but do not know what that change should be or when we have a specific goal or set of goals already in mind but require assistance in achieving their desired outcome.

Overview of coaching:

Coaching can include the following steps towards change:

  • Identify and refine personal goals
  • Promote and enhance motivation
  • Identify actual and potential resources available for achieving identified goals
  • Identify self-sabotaging thoughts and behaviours that act as barriers to achieving goals
  • Develop action plans for achieving goals, including short-term and long term milestones
  • Strategies for maintenance of positive changes.
Personal coaching helps the individual to identify and maximise their own unique resources, including personality attributes, past experiences of success and failure, and external supports. Using a positive psychology approach that draws on existing strengths an individual can feel they are achieving their goals in a sustainable and personally fulfilling manner.At Integrative Psychology we work collaboratively and creativity with the individual to support their personal development.

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.
