What is Integral Psychotherapy?

Home » Treatment Therapies » Integral Psychotherapy (IP)

Integral Psychotherapy relies on Philosopher Ken Wilburn’s Integral Theory, which says that people have different perspectives on life based on their experiences and differences. If they can unite these perspectives, they can form a more complete picture.

Integral Theory suggests that counselors must be more flexible and less rigid in their approaches to helping people. Instead of focusing on the differences each approach or theory has, Integral Psychotherapy aims to establish the helpful similarities or things that have already proven to assist individuals with mental health concerns.

Integral Psychotherapy states that instead of counseling from one of the “quadrants” — such as an individual perspective, a familial perspective, a biological perspective, or a community perspective — counselors must look at all views to best help clients.

Your therapist will help you look at all perspectives in your life to see how each views a problem. By understanding and integrating more perspectives, Integral Psychotherapy allows for greater self-awareness and, as a by-product, growth, and change.
