The integral psychotherapy approach allows participants to set the agenda for an improvisational approach to explore what works in therapy. The workshop focuses on developing skills and interventions that enable therapists to integrate various techniques and improvise based on the needs of their clients. The workshop is highly interactive, experiential and participatory. In this intensive workshop, you will learn how to identify and deconstruct the most effective interventions from each modality and integrate them into your practice. By understanding the underlying principles and techniques of each approach, you can create a customised treatment plan that meets each client’s unique needs.

The Mindfulness Clinic teamed up with one hundred psychotherapists in Ireland to gain unique insights into what works best in their therapy practice. Over the months of April and May 2023, we have been delving into their perspective and expertise to uncover what works in their therapy practice. Through this partnership, we are gaining invaluable insights into the most effective therapeutic practices to uncover what works in therapy. Integral Psychotherapy is a one-day experiential training based on our findings from one hundred therapists.

Participants will gain knowledge and competence in:

  • Learning what works in treating anxiety, panic, depression, OCD, ADHD, Bipolar, Borderline, PTSD, and trauma
  • Developing rapport and the therapeutic alliance, relationship, goals and flexibility in your therapeutic approach
  • Embodying compassionate and appreciative inquiry through guided discovery, Buddhist foundations and interpersonal psychotherapy
  • Balancing the interpersonal dynamics and internal processes to deepen therapeutic presence, skilful interpretation and intervention
  • Exploring the importance of food and mood, inflammation, sleep, physical exercise and grounding
  • Integrating creative and mindful approaches to transform your clinical practice

Workshop includes resources, notes, and certificate (CDP 5 hours). Facilitator: Gerry Cunningham, IAHIP, IACP
