Transpersonal Psychotherapy

What is Transpersonal Psychotherapy?: Growing out of Carl Jung’s idea of the ‘collective unconscious’, Transpersonal Psychotherapy (also referred to as ‘Transpersonal Psychology’ or ‘Transpersonal Therapy’) addresses the individual as part of a spiritual whole, and focuses on the aspirational nature of the human psyche. You are encouraged within this belief system to see your inner capabilities and view yourself as capable of reaching a transformative state.

Transpersonal Psychology is a humanistic approach to therapy and can be viewed as an umbrella term for forms of therapy which emphasise the importance of the spirituality of human beings, or refer specifically to an holistic form of therapy which addresses your whole being, focusing on the health, wellbeing – and healing – of your spirit.

How does Transpersonal Psychotherapy work?: A Transpersonal therapist might use a variety of techniques including visualisation, meditation, hypnotherapy, dreamwork, mindfulness, art and music to help you explore your spiritual self. If you are seeking meaning in your life, or feel like you are lacking a spiritual path, transpersonal therapy might be for you.

Psychotherapist, teacher and author Jeffrey Sumber was quoted as saying that “Transpersonal Psychology is an approach to understanding the way our minds operate through our relationships with others, resting in the belief that there is something bigger and deeper in the space between which operates upon us.”

Therapy Issues That Clinical Psychology Helps With

What does Transpersonal Psychotherapy focus on?: Transpersonal therapy aims to help people reach their full potential by exploring a person’s spiritual and psychological needs. The three key areas that are usually applied through this type of therapy modality are:

  1. Combined/holistic and natural psychology
  2. Transformative psychology
  3. Ego-transcended psychology

We want you to feel able to discuss any questions or worries with your therapist. This is important in order for you to progress in your therapy.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why Should I Seek Transpersonal Psychotherapy?

Many people, new to this type of help, believe that they need to be suffering from “mental illness” or serious “psychological problems”, or be in crisis in order for therapy and counselling to be appropriate for them. This is a common misconception; anyone can benefit from therapy when it comes to helping you deal with your personal feelings and problems, make positive changes in your life, and understand yourself better.

So what is therapy and counselling? If you’re new to this world then the first steps can sometimes be the most difficult. Therapy can be a very effective treatment for a whole range of personal problems covering areas from physical and emotional problems, different types of behavioural disorders, through to human sexuality issues and a host of wellbeing and complementary therapy techniques.

Any problem you have that is causing you concern, anxiety or distress is a valid and appropriate reason to reach out and find a therapist and talk to them about it. Far from something to be ashamed of, acknowledging your vulnerability and asking for help is a sign of maturity and strength.

If you feel that you have a desire and are committed to making changes in your life in order to overcome your current problems and achieve more long-term satisfaction, psychological wellbeing and personal fulfilment, then you are ready to seek therapy. We are here to help you work through a wide range of therapy issues that might be troubling you.

Will Information About Me Be Safe & Secure?

It is quite normal to be hesitant when it comes to sharing private and intimate information about yourself with a stranger. You may fear that you will receive judgment from your therapist, or that your therapist will share your details with others.

HQ Therapy Rooms takes your privacy and confidentiality very seriously. Our therapists are required to keep everything said in therapy sessions between you, just like your doctor is required to keep your records private.

For therapy to be effective, there must be unconditional trust built between you and your therapist, and this relies on a shared understanding of confidentiality. It applies to the outside world as well: it is standard practice for therapists not to acknowledge their clients if they run into them outside of the therapy rooms in order to help protect their client’s confidentiality. Read our full privacy policy for more information.
