Integrative cognitive therapy involves the use of a variety of therapeutic elements from different forms of treatments. The ‘integrative’ element of the treatment also refers to the client being treated in a way that integrates the personality, bringing together all systems within the person such as cognitive, behavioural and physiological areas.

A bespoke plan of treatment

What therapies are used within the realms of Integrative cognitive therapy will depend upon your personal case and how your therapist assesses you. No two clients are the same and the use of Integrative cognitive therapy means that you will be treated in accordance with a carefully tailored plan of action, bespoke to suit you. Some of the therapies that may be incorporated into Integrative cognitive therapy are as follows:

  • Body psychotherapy
  • Cognitive behavioural therapy
  • Existential therapy
  • Family therapy
  • Gestalt therapy
  • Person-centred psychotherapy
  • Psychodynamic psychotherapy
  • Transactional analysis

Mixing together different therapies

Depending upon the way in which your Integrative cognitive therapist works, they may mix a few areas of theory from different schools of therapy, focusing upon what works best for you. Other therapists may focus more on how the therapy will work, choosing a different blend of treatments; no one way is better than the other and much depends on your circumstances and the therapist that you work with.
