OVERVIEW

By providing you with a safe confidential space, you can begin to gently explore your experiences and emotions without fear of judgment. You will be encouraged to talk about your emotions and experiences, and also to bring them ‘into’ the room so they can be processed in real-time with me. 

The goal is for you to collaborate with me to increase personal awareness and actively challenge the roadblocks that have been getting in the way of healing.

TRANSPERSONAL
PSYCHOLOGY

Transpersonal psychology looks at the whole human experience.  Focusing on enhancing the study of mind-body relations, spirituality, consciousness, and human transformation.  It is a humanistic, person-centred, holistic form of psychotherapy that stresses the importance of understanding the context of a persons life and taking responsibility rather than placing blame.  Its interests lie in exploring new methods and insights into the human potential along with acknowledging and incorporating the spiritual psychologies of the Ancient Great Traditions (Hinduism, Buddhism, Taoism, mystic Christianity, Judaism and Muslim Sufism).  Transpersonal psychology works to integrate timeless wisdom with modern Western psychology.

A broad array of ideas, disciplines, and theories like philosophy, literature, health theories, art, social theory, science, and different spiritual traditions are combined and considered in this broad mode of therapy.

ORIGINS

Psychologist Abraham Maslow (1908-1970), was interested and focused on taking psychology beyond its first ‘two forces’, Freudian theory and Behaviourism. He developed developed two more ‘forces’, Humanistic and later, Transpersonal.

Transpersonal therapy examines what is really right with people rather than what is wrong
with them by focusing more on psychological health and well-being rather than simply
mental-emotional-behavioural disorders. A progression which moved away from the
traditional model of the therapist being the expert and moved towards a more nondirective,
empathic approach, which proved to empower and motivate clients during the
therapeutic process.

Good psychology should include all the methodological techniques, without having loyalty to one method, one idea, or one person.
