Sue Jayasuriya BSc (Hons). UKCP
My Integrative Psychotherapeutic Approach provides a chance to explore whatever worries or difficulties your life brings.
The Integrative Psychotherapeutic approach utilises the combined approaches of specific approaches to therapy, enabling everyone to be considered for their own personal circumstances and individual needs as well as encompassing social, spiritual, physical, cognitive, and behavioural aspects of the individual effectively.
I will be working in partnership with you to create a safe and non-judgemental environment where you will feel able to talk about your worries. I will utilise my experience of integration to ensure that you achieve the best outcome by using specific approaches including cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) to tailor the therapy to your individual needs. My integrative approach also incorporates Theraplay and play therapy techniques which when working with both parents and children can assist in the re-building of difficult relationships.
