What is transpersonal therapy? 

Transpersonal therapy involves the whole person – emotional, physical, mental and spiritual – in the therapy. The aim is to encourage personal growth and tap into creativity;  there is much more of a spiritual focus than in most counselling or therapy. Methods such as imagery, affirmation, journal writing and body awareness exercises are commonly used. 

Who benefits from transpersonal therapy?

Transpersonal therapy focuses on the whole person, making it valuable for most people, especially those who seek a more spiritual aspect in therapy. Anything which impacts on growth and self-development, such as low self-esteem, PTSD, anxiety, depression, stress and relationship issues, can be addressed with transpersonal therapy. It shares much of its philosophy with psychosynthesis.
