We are integrative therapists. We have studied, and continue to study a wide range of psychology methods and models. We believe that each client or couple is unique and therefore we seek to have a wide range of therapy tools and models to draw on, in order to better help the individual.
Analytical and listening skills from psychotherapy and counselling are often used in coaching, personal training, NLP, hypnotherapy and generally in holistic and complementary therapies.

Integrative psychotherapy is results and outcome based, but is often guided by theory and thinking from subjects including Eastern Medicine, Philosophy, Theology, Social Policy, Health Education and Psychology. Eastern models include Taoist healing methods and eastern Zen & Buddhist models including Morita, Naikan and Buddhist Object Relation Theory and Mindfulness. Meditation, Qi Gong and Reiki are also employed. Stuart and Denise have completed a range of training courses and qualification courses in these topics and are committed to further University study of these topics in order to inform and develop professional practice.Stuart is trained in cognitive behavioural analysis (including the CBASP method) allowing for deeper analysis of patterns and history than in general CBT. Analytic methods like situational analysis, significant other analysis, thought stream analysis, perceptual position analysis, desired outcome analysis, applied behavioural analysis and other related methods enable a far more specific analysis of the individual history and presentation, as well as effective new behaviour and interpretation generation allowing for more adaptive and positive feelings and behaviours.
