Joannes Berkery RGN RM MIAHIP
My Psychotherapy training focused on the Humanistic and Integrative approach. Humanistic is a term that is used to describe an approach that respects, values and treats the individual as a whole person physically, spiritually, mentally and emotionally. This method also holds the belief that people have choice, freedom, responsibility and the capacity to change, heal and grow towards reaching their true potential.
My original training as a registered Nurse and Midwife gives me a grounding in the human conditions of illness and dis-ease which supports my Humanistic and Integrative approach.
Integrative means that I draw creatively from a broad range of therapeutic strategies to help you on that journey. There is no definite prescribed method for any dilemma. The ranges of therapies I draw from are Gestalt, Person Centred, Mindfulness, Existential and Hakomi. In addition, my training as a nurse/midwife/acupressure shiatsu therapist enables me to view the whole human being, body, mind and spirit.
