Psychoanalityc and Transpersonal Psychoterapy Sessions
Jungian therapy starts by recognising the potential in each individual and working toward allowing the person to develop themselves fully. This will frequently involve looking at the way that past experiences have affected the individual and the way they continue to prevent us from living fulfilled lives; in other words, Jungian therapy is about ‘removing obstacles’. Transpersonal psychology was developed by American psychologist, Abraham Maslow in the 1960s. The term 'transpersonal' means 'beyond the personal', and this reflects the core aim of the therapy - to explore human growth and help people to discover a deep and more enduring essential self that exists beyond the conditioned ego.
The methodology behind this therapeutic process is a combination of spiritual traditions from around the world, which are integrated with elements of contemporary psychology. This framework can help a wide range of individuals - including groups of people such as families and work colleagues.
Those who undergo this combined styles therapy sessions with me, are expected to gain a complete understanding of themselves, their capacities, and their relationships, and will leave equipped with the skills to help them deal with these beyond therapy. Ultimately, in healing and growth is approached through recognition of the centrality of self.
