Humanistic and Integrative Psychotherapy College (HIPC)

Members of our Humanistic and Integrative Psychotherapy College (HIPC) believe in seeing each individual as a whole person including body, feelings, mind and spirit. They aim to work with a full range of influences to encourage clients to develop themselves, their relationship to others and to society.

Humanistic integrative psychotherapy relies upon the importance of the relationship between the therapist and client to enable mind, body, feeling, soul and spirit to come together as a whole.

Both the client and the psychotherapist are actively engaged in shaping the processes of assessing the client’s problems or issues, working out what will happen in therapy and evaluating the outcomes.

Humanistic and integrative psychotherapists believe in their client’s ability to take responsibility for themselves and their choices, and their capacity to fulfil their talents. The psychotherapist works with the client to realise these potentials.

Humanistic and integrative psychotherapists take into consideration how the external world affects the client, and will explore the significance of social, cultural and political experience.

Humanistic and integrative psychotherapy is available in a range of settings in the public, private and voluntary sectors and benefits individuals, couples, children, families, groups and organisations.
