This is a brief therapy and practiced by around 150 therapists in the UK. It is an evidenced based approach that enables people to deal with and move forward from challenging, conflicting or traumatic life events or experiences.
Below is the copy of an email from Emma following her experience of CPI:
“I would like to thank you for being so kind, thoughtful, supportive and understanding. From the day I walked into your office I felt so comfortable and safe talking to you, like I had known you for years.
I remember the first session that I had with you, I was anxious and wondered if you were going to be able to help me.
After many years I had finally realised and accepted that there were some areas in my life that I needed to change.I really enjoyed the sessions, although at times they were personally challenging I felt enlightened by the release of very deep-rooted feelings, some of which I didn’t know I had! The results are definitely worth a few tears!
When I first came to see you I never imagined learning so much about myself and how past experiences had shaped my life and caused the issues that have been holding me back for years. My views and feelings are now much clearer and I look forward to a happy future.
I would recommend this approach and of course you to anyone who needs a little help getting their life back on track.
Thank you Philip for everything.”
‘A bit about CPI’
This approach allows you to explore any difficult past issues you may have in a safe, non-judgemental environment. You will be able to talk through at a pace that is comfortable to you about your experiences, explore your feelings about them and then reintegrate them into your consciousness and think about them in a more helpful and positive way that will allow you to get on with your life.
‘What does Cognitive Processing and Integration involve?’
The process involves using a technique know as ‘Free Association’. You’ll be asked to close your eyes, relax and let your mind drift back to the issues that are causing you difficulty. You will be able to explore whatever comes up in your thoughts in a number of different ways and then you will be encouraged to reintegrate these issues back into your consciousness in a positive and empowering way, that will allow you to move on with your life.
When could CPI help me?
CPI can assist people to helpfully process and ‘get over’ a wide range of conflicting, distressing or traumatic events and experiences. These experiences may have occurred in childhood or they may be recent challenging or traumatic experiences. Some such experiences include: the death of a loved one, accidents or severe illnesses, experiences of war or conflict, mugging, physical assault, sexual assault, childhood trauma or abuse, and natural disasters. A discussion with Philip will help you both to decide whether CPI would be the most suitable way forward for you.
