Transpersonal Therapy For The Body and The Mind
What is Transpersonal Therapy
As a Transpersonal Psychologist and NYS Licensed Mental Health Counselor, my practice is holistic in nature and address a spectrum of human consciousness, development and functioning. Along this spectrum, exceptional human experiences and non-ordinary states of consciousness may be occurring, therefore, a more integral or psychospiritual therapy is my treatment approach.
The “personal” aspect of transpersonal therapy concerns the fact that on the path to healing there needs to be a working through of potential psychological and/or traumatic issues which can cause splits and limitations to clients optimal functioning. At Transpersonal Counseling of NYC, utilizing an integrated spiritual and clinical approach, I assist clients work through the internal/ external, societal and contextual aspects of their presenting concerns on a personal level.
Once the “personal” aspect of my client’s issue has been initially identified and is being worked through with transpersonal therapy, the “trans” concerns a more non-dual integrated state of consciousness my clients develop towards managing personal limitations and gaining vital potential to live with deeper purpose and greater meaning.
The transpersonal approach utilizes an integration of both Western psychology and Eastern contemplative spiritual practices (i.e. mindfulness meditation, breathwork, bodywork, expressive arts, meditative dance, yoga etc.), as a means of accessing deeper and higher modes of awareness.
While Transpersonal Counseling of NYC incorporates spiritual therapies, it does not use these therapies to merely make clients feel good and avoid dealing with their unresolved emotional and psychological issues. Therefore, both clinical and spiritual assessments of clients overall functioning are conducted in order to assist them identify, explore and understand the full context of their concerns.
