Priority is given to being listened to, feeling safe and understood (ie a relational approach.) Accessing feelings and
sources of discomfort and soothing/stimulation are also important as well as experimenting with
new ways of thinking, feeling and behaving. A mindful approach is taken to positively change the ways we may
connect and disconnect from our own feelings, thoughts and body as well as how we communicate in our
relationships. An Integrative approach focuses on the integration of mind, body and feelings. It works with:
Emotional feelings (eg anger, fear, sadness, joy or lack of)
Body sensations (eg numbness, pain, tension, breathing, relaxation and assertive responses)
Behaviour (eg how we communicate or not, ask for what we want or not, say no or not, and lifestyle issues)
Interpersonal relationships and communication (friends, family, workmates etc)
Thoughts and ideas about ourself and others as well as meaning, values and life directions.
Developmental history (ie what it was like for you growing up)
