Internal Cohesion psychotherapy

Internal Cohesion psychotherapy

Internal Cohesion Psychotherapy (ICP) is a new eclectic approach aiming to integrate best practices from different perspectives while remaining unique in conceptualizing the nature of psychopathology and its treatment. In a short time, this approach became popular and it is known for its practicability and effectivity. The core components of Internal Cohesion Psychotherapy are systems and time. Systems are composed of important relations that an individual has, and they are dependent on time (the past, present and the future).

A Word From The Author

Almost 13 years ago I started my journey in Psychotherapy. At the beginning, I tended to follow structured psychotherapy approaches and almost got obsessed with their golden rules, “do’s and don’ts” and their boarders. However, often I felt that clients were not benefiting and I experienced the inevitable “hopelessness”. I realized that a sole approach is not going to fit all the challenges my clients will bring into sessions. Therefore, I started to collect the best knowledges and practices from different perspectives, to combine and link therapeutic strategies and sometimes I had the courage to think innovatively and to apply new techniques. This is how the idea of Internal Cohesion Psychotherapy started. Today, ICP is a new idea, it is a book and it represents a new psychotherapy approach.
