Lifespan Integration is a therapeutic way of working that works quickly and gently to effect healing for individuals who have gone through painful experiences, abuse, neglect or abandonment.
Lifespan Integration UK Ltd is a not-for-profit organisation created to promote Lifespan Integration (LI) therapy, train psychological counsellors and therapists in LI and support the development of trained LI therapists in the UK and Ireland.
I have taken part in LI counselling and LI is now a part of me. It has helped me immensely. It has helped me deal with the loss of my mother at a very early age
Now I can feel joy and am peaceful, and wake up without a sense of dread. My thoughts are quiet and I can engage with life, people and events here and now instead of enduring a constant re-run of the past and its pain.
‘I am seeing many positive outcomes with generalised anxiety and panic attacks and with post traumatic reactions. The clients not only experience a reduction, and often a cessation, of their symptoms, they build an inner strength and confidence and start living differently and their unhelpful beliefs that were so strong are gently transformed into helpful ones that reflect their ‘here and now’ life.’
‘This training has transformed my practice – it has brought positive healing results and works at a far quicker pace getting to the core of some problems without the need for prolonged work – particularly with functional neurological symptoms. It changes lives – try it!’
‘Lifespan Integration Therapy has been the most valuable training that I have done in my 22 years of working as a psychologist and psychotherapist. I now use it with the majority of my clients. It is so effective because it works on deep sub-cortical structures in the brain and therefore promotes more rapid and permanent healing than talking therapy alone. It also heals without re-traumatising and can treat pre-verbal traumas, such as birth or early attachment trauma. I have found it especially helpful in my work with adopted and Looked After children, as well as adults and adolescents with PTSD, Borderline Personality Disorder, depression, self-harm and anxiety disorders. I would highly advise any therapist to add LI to their toolkit!’
"In 2008 I first used Pace's Lifespan Integration method to treat a chronically unwell patient who had undergone three previous courses of therapy with different therapists without improvement. After a year and a half of treatment she was fully recovered. I have continued using LI for the last 7 years with good outcomes. In severe dissociative cases, LI offers a safe pathway to integration. Lifespan Integration reaches through to core problems speedily and powerfully with a deep understanding of the issues."
