Transpersonal Therapy

Transpersonal therapy is a therapeutic treatment orientation that takes a holistic approach. Instead of focusing only on the mind, transpersonal therapy takes the physical, emotional, intellectual, creative and social needs of the individual into account. In transpersonal therapy, the emphasis is on the health of the spirit. The theory behind transpersonal therapy is that all people consist of parts that are intangible and beyond our known existence (or spiritual). Working to heal these spiritual aspects is necessary in order to achieve whole wellbeing. Think this approach might be right for you?

Let's explore that which you perceive beyond your 5 senses. What do you believe is greater than you? How is that a resource for you in your life? What is your relationship to your intuition? I am here to provide support around your exploration of the transpersonal, through conversation and, if you would find it helpful, through what I call "intuitive arts" modalities such as ritual, altar making, divination cards, guided visualization, movement meditation, automatic drawing, and more.

I studied at the Institute of Transpersonal Psychology with some of the leading figures in the field. Everyone is capable of and has a deep yearning for experiences of greater wholeness. I work with people who want to integrate these experiences into their daily lives and keep that wisdom close to their heart. I love helping people connect to the deep core of themselves.

Transpersonal Therapy embraces the totality of the human experience by honoring and working with the wisdom of the mind, body and spirit. Using my highly developed senses of empathy, telepathy and wisdom gathering, therapeutic goals are clarified and achieved in a much shorter period of time than transitional therapies can offer.

Transpersonal therapy emphasizes one's spiritual path and, in essence, focuses on the transcendent aspect of the soul's journey. Working toward self-actualization and enlightenment to expand human growth and potential, the result is greater integration of our disowned/unconscious parts, emphasizing intimacy with the deep core of our essential self. Archetypal astrology helps illuminate thematic potential and objectifies the inherent motivational drives prominent in one's life.

Heart-Centered Breath Therapy, which is highly effective in healing "birth issues", releasing energy blocks, gaining personal clarity, and deepening the spiritual connection. Energy work and developing client skills to establish their own 'safe container' in their body.

— Michelle Kelley, Counselor in ,
 

Transpersonal psychology incorporates the spiritual and mystical element into the therapeutic process. This may include dream work, meditative practices, and spiritual exploration. Sometimes you can only get so far with traditional talk therapy, and positive change requires a broader perspective, which honors the unseen realms that affect our experience. All manner of healing begins with the energy behind it, and transpersonal therapy helps tap into those causative layers.

— Eve Arbel, Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist in Oceanside, CA

The type of counseling I offer is spiritual counseling. Spiritual counseling is based on spirituality, and I define spirituality as the state of being connected to one's own spirit. We have our physical bodies and physical reality but also nonphysical bodies and nonphysical reality, which is beyond our personal identities. Transpersonal therapy is a kind of holistic therapy but focuses more on the transpersonal spiritual side of our physical-spiritual spectrum.

I received my degree in integral counseling psychology, focusing on a wider perspective of humans than just our psychology. After graduation, I have explored and studied various methods and maps of understand human nature and integration of psychology with spirituality.

— Ruchika Mehta, Marriage & Family Therapist in Oakland, CA
 

I employ alternative ways of knowing and healing to help clients deepen their self-understanding. I have studied yoga, and enhanced mindfulness techniques, as well as nutrition, astrology, body-typing, shamanism, psychosynthesis, theosophy, hypnotherapy, the Fourth Way, and Traditional Chinese Medicine diagnostic techniques. All of these help inform my understanding of my clients' challenges and evolutionary journey..

If your primary caretakers are not addressing the whole of you, body, mind and soul, you are not going to be well. Unless each person is working on all aspects of the human constitution we will always fall short and may fall by the wayside. Spiritual counseling is not necessarily based on religion, but can be if that is what you need and prefer. It's about helping you heal from the inside out.

— Rev Dr Sandy Range, Counselor in Stoughton, MA
 

I have an extended history with christianity and often work with clients that are recovering from religious abuse. I consider mind, body and soul to be integral to healing and help clients connect with the spiritual aspect of themself. I had a psychosynthesis focus in my grad school program and am continuing that with focused spiritual trainings that align with my other therapy modalities, especially IFS.
