Integrative Therapy

Giving you the Power to Heal and Change

Welcome

You may have come to this web-page already knowing what brings you here and what you are looking for. You may have a particular issue in your life that you want to focus on, explore and resolve.

Perhaps you have become aware of a pattern in your life - in your relationships, work, social, family life - that you'd like to address.

Maybe you do not yet know what is "wrong" but you have a sense that something doesn't feel "right"; you know something needs to change but you're not sure what it is.  Maybe you can't yet find the right words to express your thoughts and feelings.

Or perhaps you work for an institution or are a parent, carer or guardian and are looking to employ a counsellor/psychotherapist for group and/or individual psychotherapy.

If any of the above rings true for you, then perhaps I can be of help.

Online Video Therapy

If you cannot travel, you are still able to access effective therapy via online video calls.

I have extensive experience of offering this service and would be happy to help. For more information on this service please get in touch either via the contact form or by email / phone.

What is Integrative Therapy?

Integrative Therapy is a form of counselling or psychotherapy.

As an Integrative Therapist I draw upon various evidence based therapuetic techniques that are proven to help people recover from traumatic experiences, challenging relationships and mental health conditions.

I am a qualified psychotherapist (dramatherapist) and have experience and training in Internal Family Systems therapy, psycho-drama and trauma informed approaches; all taught by international experts and pioneers in their field. When working together I will draw upon my experience and varied approaches to best suit your unique needs. We will also have access to action methods that can deepen and enhance the therapy.

Action methods can include: focusing on bodily sensations, movements and breath; the use of metaphor and the imagination; working with objects or images to externalize your internal world in order to obtain new perspectives and insights. Integrative Therapy also uses Role work: there are clear and simple role techniques which can aid greater self-understanding and harmony. Role work can also promote better understanding of your social, family or intimate relationships too. When it's hard to find the right words or when words alone are not enough, action methods can be very helpful.

How do I begin?

The first step will be to get in touch.

You can call me on 07736 830 322 or email info@louiseplatt.co.uk.

Once you've got in touch we can briefly discuss the reasons why you are seeking therapy.

Following this we can arrange a time to meet for a consultation session.

What's a consultation session?

It is important that you feel comfortable with the therapist you choose to work with. A consultation session is a time in which we can meet each other in person. You will have time tell me a little more about why you are seeking therapy and ask any questions you may have.  I can also share with you my experience, how I work and whether I believe I have the right experience and skills to help you.  In this time, you can get a feel of what it may be like working with me without any obligation to sign up to therapy there and then.

What happens next?

If you would like us to work together then we'll create a therapeutic agreement that will define time, frequency, payment, cancellation policy, confidentiality & the ending process.

About Louise Platt

BA MA PGDip HPCP BADth

As an Integrative Therapist, I will be very present with you, actively listening and responding to what you bring to therapy. I will share my thoughts and feelings with you whenever appropriate, rather than sitting in silence.  I will be curious about how past relationships and experience may have impact your life now.  I believe in the healing power of the relationship between therapist and client whilst working with deep compassion, curiosity and acceptance. 

 

At times I may offer you action methods that are designed to support and enhance your therapeutic experience. These techniques are always introduced when and if needed and at a pace that feels right for you.

I have been working as a therapist since 2006 and have worked with a wide variety of people in various settings:  older adults, adult mental health, adolescent mental health, children and infants in schools. I have worked in hospital settings, care-homes, schools, colleges and in private practice.

I am also a Clinical Supervisor and Artist Wellbeing Practitioner.

My goal is to help you to understand yourself more deeply with a deep sense of care and compassion and I pride myself on being an authentic, dedicated and professional therapist.

I am registered with the Health Care Professions Council (reg. no. AS08365) and a full member of the British Association of Dramatherapists (BADth).

I have full professional liability insurance with Holistic Insurance.

What people have said...

I've really enjoyed working with you and I feel privileged to have got to experience dramatherapy. You are honestly the most crazy insightful person I've ever met and your ability to lead us as a group to our own personal revolutions is incredible. Thank you for creating a safe space for us."

I have found dramatherapy to be very beneficial - I have learnt a great deal about myself and others and will certainly never forget the experience, or the stories! You are a true inspiration."
