My name is Jason and I provide short and long-term counselling & psychotherapy with a therapeutic approach recognised as Transpersonal Psychotherapy. Transpersonal psychotherapy differs from clinical mind-centred therapies and is a powerful therapeutic approach that works with what we all possess; a mind, a body and a soul (or spirit), i.e. our “Psychology”.
Transpersonal Psychotherapy is a humanistic ‘you-centred’ approach and values equally all aspects of our ‘being’. Unlike most forms of psychotherapy that concentrate on improving mental health alone; transpersonal psychotherapy takes an equally thorough, yet more holistic approach in that it considers a much wider scope of mental, physical, spiritual, social, emotional, creative and intellectual needs; in equal merit, in order to support a client to reach a place of wholeness, balance, self-empowerment and individuation. Client work is an exploration of the ego-mind-body-soul dynamics and their influence on mental, emotional, physical and relational health and functioning.
Transpersonal Psychotherapy works with both the relative and absolute, the subjective and objective, the mind and the heart, the body and the soul and with ancient & traditional, Eastern and Western approaches to healing and transformation. The spiritual work is the awakening of a higher state of consciousness; the consciousness of the heart. The psychological work involves working with the experiences, emotions, feelings and belief systems which may help or hinder growth.
All aspects of ‘self’ need to be recognised explored and worked with if we are to heal deep issues and embrace who we are; if we are to live a life of more balance, wholeness and authenticity in order to promote healthier relationships with those we connect with and also a healthier relationship with our self. Such an approach may also consider existential implications such as the meaning and purpose of one’s existence; in addition to how societal conditions and pressures such as eco-anxiety, climate distress and expectations surrounding gender imposed stereotyping of roles, duties and obligations may affect one’s overall well-being.
