With the transpersonal approach, we will look at the sessions holistically, viewing life and life experiences as part of the larger process of your spiritual path. From the transpersonal view whatever is happening to us now is viewed as a positive opportunity for growth. Through the sessions the counselor facilitates your processes through a variety of means, depending on your needs. Some of the techniques used by me include the following:
Send an email message or I’m also happy to chat with you on the phone to see what you may need and then you can decide if you are feeling at ease with me and continue from there.
When you make the decision to see a Transpersonal Art Therapist, it is an opportunity for you to experience counseling a little differently than the way counseling normally operates. In addition to talking, you can create, use different art materials or sand. Your imagination is an abundant well of knowledge, a window to who you really are. Using these processes allows self-growth and healing.
Sometimes some of my clients are not ready to talk or find it hard to talk and it’s OK. We can use different methods to make a transition into healing. Images can do the talking for us. Here are some ways we can use Art Therapy:
It is an effective approach to mental health. It is non-threatening and non-verbal, you can control the process and you can safely take risks with materials and imagery whilst being supported. As a Trained Transpersonal Art Therapy Practitioner, I assist people in building relationships with themselves and others.
“I found myself smiling at my own world that appeared in the images or stories I wrote and they didn’t seem as scary anymore when appearing on paper or in the sand.” E.M.
We are all so different and have unique personalities and stories. There is no one-size-fits-all in counseling. This is the beauty of the transpersonal approach and you. Let’s celebrate who you are and where you are at.
