What is Transpersonal Psychotherapy?
Transpersonal/Psychospiritual psychotherapy is similar to regular psychotherapy except that it includes a spiritual dimension as part of the therapeutic process. It views the human psyche as having a central core Self or Soul as the centre of identity, as well as a personal ego. Transpersonal psychotherapists use a variety of therapeutic modalities, to uncover past psychological material that may be affecting the client’s current situation and/or mindset. They do so while maintaining an awareness and inclusion of spiritual insight and experience (both from the client and the therapist) and incorporate this into therapy to help the client heal on a more holistic level – mind, body and spirit.
