The goal of humanistic therapy is to help people become more self-aware and accepting of themselves. In contrast to psychoanalysis, humanistic therapists focus on conscious rather than unconscious thoughts. They also emphasise the patient’s present and future, as opposed to exploring the patient’s past.
Integrative Or Holistic Therapy
Integrative therapy, also known as mind-body therapy, is a progressive form of psychotherapy that combines a range of therapeutic tools and approaches to fit the needs of each patient. This approach to addiction treatment aims to promote inner resilience and personal balance.
Your therapist will help you look at life in a new way and change the way you perceive yourself. Person-centred theory encourages the patient to find solutions to their problems. Therapy will teach you unconditional positive regard. You will learn how to be easy on yourself in the process. Too often, we judge ourselves harshly and fail to recognise that everyone makes mistakes.
