OVERVIEW

Transpersonal therapy is holistic in approach focusing on the mind-body connection.  I believe that our mental health and physical wellbeing go hand in hand, therefore, practicing psychotherapy from the ‘full human experience’ perspective, mind, body, and spirit, feels the most natural and connective mode to work from.  

Anxiety, depression, addiction, all fear-based illnesses, can be manifestations of a deeper painful struggle that is crying out to be seen, healed, and nurtured.  Transforming deep negative beliefs about ourselves builds esteem, brings about internal peace, and empowers you to start living as your true authentic self, which is what we all deserve.

Having fulfilled, honest, and loving relationships, both with yourself and others, is vital in achieving fulfilment in life.  Helping individuals and couples to transform their lives through the experience of being their true selves and creating closer, deeper more meaningful connections is at the centre of what I do.

How it works

By creating a safe and supportive environment, collaboratively we will work together to explore your emotions, thoughts, and behaviours in depth. I will use a variety of techniques, such as exploring childhood experiences, examining patterns of behaviour, or discussing current relationships, to help you gain insight into your unconscious motivations and internal conflicts.

Through this exploration, I can help you uncover and work through unresolved issues, develop a greater self-awareness, and make positive changes in your life. Slowly and gently, I will support through deep and meaningful conversations and processes that allow you to explore your inner world and gain a better understanding of yourself and your relationships.

I will provide you with tools and techniques to further integrate sessions into your daily life helping you to cope with challenges and struggles that may arise. The focus is on holistic healing and self-discovery, encouraging you to explore your innermost thoughts and beliefs in order to achieve a deeper sense of purpose and fulfilment in your life.

 

ORIGINS

Transpersonal therapy originated in the 1960s and 1970s as a branch of psychology that focuses on the spiritual and transcendent aspects of human experience. One of the key figures in the development of transpersonal therapy was Abraham Maslow, a prominent psychologist who believed that traditional psychology focused too much on pathology and dysfunction, and he sought to explore the higher levels of human consciousness and potential.

Maslow’s concept of self-actualization, which is the realization of one’s full potential, was a central theme in transpersonal therapy. He believed that individuals could transcend their personal limitations and strive towards greater levels of fulfillment and self-awareness.

Maslow also emphasized the importance of peak experiences, or moments of profound insight and connection with something greater than oneself, as key components of personal growth and transformation. These ideas laid the foundation for transpersonal therapy, which seeks to integrate spiritual and transcendent experiences into the therapeutic process to help individuals achieve a greater sense of meaning, purpose, and connection in their lives.
