INTEGRATION PSYCHOTHERAPY SERVICES

 

 

Pilamaya Centre for Integration Psychotherapy (PCIP)

What We Do

 

Welcome to Integration Psychotherapy Services. We are a community interest company within the Pilamaya Centre working to expand access to private psychotherapy. We serve members of our community who have been unable to get the mental health support they need through the NHS or the private sector.

We are committed to providing immediate relief to those in our local communities who need it most, by matching them with trainee and graduate integration psychotherapists able to provide reduced-cost psychotherapy to those facing mental health distress and financial hardship. By supplying trainees on the Integration Psychotherapy course with high-quality clinical supervision throughout their therapy placements, we ensure that clients get the quality support they deserve, while raising the level of clinical expertise in the private therapy sector and the quality of care available in subsidised therapy.

 

Our approach is intended to not only offer hope to those suffering in our own community, but to inspire other organisations to re-think the role the private therapy sector can play in helping to address the UK’s mental health crisis in these unprecedented times. We believe that all human beings have a right to quality mental health support they can access in a matter of weeks and months rather than years.

Further Information

Our Costs

We aim to make our services available to all at an accessible cost. Our sliding scale runs from £20-£50 per session, and we ask you to pay what you can. Your contributions go towards helping us to maintain our high standards of supervision and further training for our therapists.

Steps in the Process

Once you have registered your interest, we will contact you by email to arrange a 20-minute phone conversation. We will match you to one of our therapists and put you in touch with them shortly after. Your therapist will dedicate the first one or two sessions to give you space to discuss your medical, psychological, and personal history and your current difficulties or reasons for seeking therapy. You mustn’t be experiencing extreme psychological distress during your assessment. 

We ask that you commit to at least eight weeks of therapy with us, and you can stay as long as the therapeutic alliance is working for you. 

More about Integration Psychotherapy

Integration Psychotherapy brings something new into this field. It combines approaches from talking therapy, somatic practices and multifaith paths with a science-based understanding of the human system and the individuation process.

An Integration Psychotherapist knows how the body responds to pressure and can share methods to help people bring balance to the system. They have undergone profound processes that enable them to understand how the system responds to crisis and know how to help people integrate their experiences and better understand the self. They all work uniquely, yet all have the breadth to facilitate talking, mindfulness, meditation, breathing practices and movement. The whole process is held by somatic enquiry, which supports the client to come into the here and now.

All trainee psychotherapists working with IPS are in their final year of training and have been cleared to offer therapy under the guidance of clinical supervision. Our therapist are supported by supervisors specifically trained by us in Somatic Supervision.

Cost should never be a hindrance to healing, but in communities where public mental health services are increasingly out of reach, financial hardship means prolonged suffering for thousands of adults... It is more critical now than ever that creative solutions are brought forth to address the mental health crisis in the United Kingdom.
