What is Integral Core Therapy?

What would you like to do?

Integral Core Therapy is a synthesis of psychotherapeuitic and spiritual therapeutic disciplines that bring about deep psychological healing and self-realisation.

What ICT has to offer is:

  • One-to-one integral psychotherapy sessions
  • Working therapeutically in groups in evening groups, workshops and courses
  • The four-year Integral Core Therapy Practitioner Training Course

INTENTION OF INTEGRAL CORE THERAPY
There are several reasons to have ICT:
Access the love and awareness of your core self
Find meaning and purpose in your life
Deal with your struggle and strife
Experience deep psychological healing of your pain
Address unresolved childhood wounds
Connect to yourself and others from your heart
Support community and spirituality in the social sphere
Live a more authentic and fullfiling life
Forge an intimate and enduring alliance with your spiritual core

The reason we aim to include your core self in your psychological process is because it is your core that is your source of healing, wisdom and strength. As your therapist I will psychologically hold, activate and support you as you go within to access your core self. Once you enlist its guidance, love, empowerment and strength then you can resolve any childhood wounding. By accessing your inner resources of your core self, you are in good hands. For, it is your integral-spiritual core that is your true healer, minister and guide.

THE THERAPEUTIC RELATIONSHIP

This way of working is a collaboration between you as client and me as facilitator, rather than the interaction between an expert and a patient. The so-called ‘contract’ for individual sessions, groups and workshops is a mutual agreement and aim to:

– Explore your vision and purpose in your life
– Commit to your psychological process of healing
– Trust your personal-spiritual unfoldment
– Be open to listen to and accept your inner child
– Validate your journey whatever it looks like
– Work with sincerity and integrity
– Allow your naturalness to emerge
– Honour your own and others’ boundaries
– Take care of your inner and outer true needs
– Learn to love yourself for who you are
– Surrender to your spiritual nature
– Integrate with your core self

These aims are made possible by a mutual commitment to:

– Work with the principles of Integral Core Therapy
– Agree to its frame and practices.
– Accept its ethos in individual and group boundaries, such as
non-violence, respectfulness, confidentiality and self-responsibility.
– Acknowledge what we all bring to the therapeutic relationship/s,
one-to-one or groups, make the whole greater than the sum of its parts.
– Set clear agreements for attendance and payment.

CORE VALUES OF ICT

These are both engendered and relied upon in the sessions to facilitate genuine change:
Direct experience
Naturalness
Acceptance
Trust
Empathy
Enquiry
Sincerity
Transparency
Good will
