Integral Psychotherapy

Integral Psychotherapy is an approach to psychotherapy (both medical and psychological) that encompasses the full spectrum of human consciousness and its potential pathologies (as well as treatment) as well as its embodiment in the organism and neurophysiology and embeddedness in the networks of sociocultural, environmental, and economic relationships. 

This multidimensional integrated condition of human beingness-in-the-world is called “the AQAL matrix” (as famously conceptualized by Ken Wilber). Integral Psychotherapy fully implements this AQAL perspective in its understanding of a human being (for further information on the AQAL approach see the entries: Integral Psychology, AQAL; see also, e.g., Elliott Ingersoll and David Zeitler’s book Integral Psychotherapy: Inside Out/Outside In and Andre Marquis’ book Integral Psychotherapy: A Unifying Approach). 

The application of this approach is up to a particular individual or school of psychological thought. Sometimes this is accompanied by an actual synthesis of various practical methods and modalities that encompass more or less a full spectrum of levels of consciousness and practices aimed at all quadrants (as, for example, in Holoscendence). Generally, Integral Psychotherapy goes beyond mere eclecticism into an integrative meta-synthesis that is grounded in the Integral AQAL Framework.

Integral Psychotherapy is mostly developmental and based on an understanding how various dysfunctions, “addictions” and “allergies” can be created during the process of human development and unfolding both through (vertical) stages of maturity and (horizontal) states of consciousness.

There is a difference between integrally-informed psychology/therapy and a truly Integral psychology/therapy. 

An integrally-informed approach is that which takes into account and is cognitively aware of the AQAL matrix though continues to gravitate to a particular method which might be limited to a single quadrant (for instance, a phenomenological consciousness dimension) or level (for example, working only with and/or within the rational stage of consciousness), and attempts to contextualize it within an overall all-quadrant understanding (possibly referring their clients, when needed, to other experts who specialize in a different dimension of the AQAL matrix). 

A truly Integral psychology/therapy is a set of integrated practices which intentionally takes into account and enacts the full AQAL matrix while its practitioners have access at least to what is called holistic and integral stage or stages (or levels) of consciousness development. 

The integral stage of consciousness in its most mature form can embody a holistic transcultural and metahistorical vision (thus significantly transcending the limitations of any given culture-specific and time-specific era). Generally, representatives of this later stage of maturity are engaged in an ongoing inquiry into most profound existential and spiritual questions of what it means to be a human being. In this search, they have been looking for a whole experience of humanity, transcending but including shared knowledge, sanctioned in a given society, while gaining a profound insight into how our human experiences are constructed. Such people also tend to practically work on integrating virtually dozens of different paradigms (approaches and perspectives), being interested in diversifying their methods to life rather than sticking only to a limited set of aspects of modalities. 

This level and scope of awareness (i.e., the Integral stage) are necessary if one aims at comprehensively co-enacting and co-constructing a better and more wholeness-based reality which transcends more narrow views which are limited merely to one quadrant or level or line or state or type, etc. Only genuinely transpersonal stages of consciousness development surpass the Integral stage (or stages) in the depth of wholeness that they are capable of handling, enacting, and embodying.

A striking feature of any genuinely Integral psychology or psychotherapy is its acceptance and profound understanding of the spiritual (or transpersonal) dimensions of human consciousness and reality, while being very serious about understanding more common, material and economic aspects of life.

In my work, I integrate various methods of creative expression with children and families, including arts-based approaches, mindfulness, play therapy techniques, and developmentally appropriate psycho-education. With expertise in childhood growth and development, thanatology (the study of death and grief), attachment, trauma-informed practices, and transpersonal psychology, I emphasize a whole-person approach, which is strongly influenced by present moment, emphatic, and spiritual dimensions of supporting families in crisis.

Are you struggling with energy, motivation, having trouble losing weight. Your probably killing yourself working at the gym and starving yourself and nothing changes? Are you stressing about life not sleeping well. Trust me I know exactly what that is like and how you feel. Just 6 years ago I was feeling all of that and worse. I was 14kgs/30lbs heavier than I am now, I was starving all the time, I was running 70kms a week killing myself training and I was exhausted from a busy work and family life all the time constantly stressing about eating and food. It got to a point where I hit rock bottom and went looking for better answers. I will help you make long term sustainable changes to your life. I do this by Coaching and helping you understand what is going on in your body and your life. Then importantly what to do about it.

Unlike other coaching programs, the coaching methods that I employ extend beyond basic actions and mentoring approaches. The program package that I design for you knows that gimmicks don’t create long-term results – the mind is the key to your continued success. Even a perfect system won’t prosper without the right mindset. When you transform your mindset, you are suddenly keen to revolutionize your story. Most societies are imprisoned by their own set expectations – they become ambushed in a cycle of negative self-talk and come satisfied they’re unsuitable or powerless to achieve their goals. I have extensive training and education to encourage you to establish those beliefs and break patterns that are holding you back.

As someone who struggles with focus-challenges and ADHD or just feels like they have ADHD in these busy times we live in -- it's important to work with someone who understands the nuances of this experience. As a mindfulness and life coach, my clients appreciate that I actually have lived experience with ADHD, not just a theoretical understanding. I believe in becoming an optimal version of ourselves now, not in some distant future and that change can often happen quickly if we are willing to look at the stories that are running behind the scenes in our lives. You'll get the best results if you are open-minded and willing to experiment with counter-intuitive ideas and practices to find solutions that work uniquely for you.

When was the last time you woke up feeling refreshed? I always tell my patients "My goal is for you to put your head down to go to sleep and the next thing you know, your alarm clock is going off." I've treated 1000's of patients for sleep problems and although I can never guarantee results, I can tell you that I know a thing or two about communicating with people. I have experienced bedside manner that can only come with 20 years of clinical patient care dealing with fearful, angry, depressed and sleep deprived patients and clinical experience of being a doctor in the field as well as a fanatical sleep enthusiast I'd love to help you get better sleep. I do it everyday.
