The practice on the Van Eycklei
What is psychotherapy?
Psychotherapy is a treatment that is applied by a psychologist or psychotherapist. The therapist does not provide ready solutions, but helps sorting through everything and gaining insight(s). This is done professionally and confidentially, in a safe environment.
in a safe environment.
What do you have to do in order to get therapy?
At Integra we operate as follows: after you reach out to us for the first time, we invite you to an intake session. We will try to assess your complaints and expectations through the same consultation as well, so as to make a recommendation for the continuation of your trajectory. Depending on the situation we will recommend continuing the therapy or
rather suggest a referral. It is equally possible for you to not really feel in tune with your therapist. This may give way to a referral as well and it is important for you to feel comfortable enough to raise the subject if needed.
How long will your therapy take?
It is not easy to adequately assess the possible duration of a therapy in advance. Various factors will influence its course. Globally speaking easy solutions are rarely found and psychotherapy often equals a rather lengthy engagement. In some cases just a few sessions will suffice, but more often a trajectory will span over a few months and in some cases even over a year.
What is Integra’s specific vision on therapy?
At Integra we provide therapy tailored to your needs. Our vision is threefold and symbolized by the three ends of the Greek letter ‘psy’ (Ψ) in our logo:
Integrality: we try to approach every complaint as broad mindedly as possible, all the while avoiding to jumping to conclusions.
Integrity we commit to providing therapy with respect for the individuality of each person.
Integration: every human being has strengths and weaknesses. Together, we depart on a journey to find your strengths and ways to integrate them with your weaknesses to become more resilient.

We specifically apply a clinical point of view in our work, focusing on the wellbeing of your staff (and/or students). The advice to your organization is built around your particular demands and may include training in the use of tools such as surveys, mediation or team building if desired.
