The intent of a Transpersonal Psychotherapist and Coach is to help the individual come to terms with life as a meaningful and fulfilling personal growth experience, no matter what challenges there are to face.
Transpersonal / Spiritual Psychology
The term “Transpersonal” means expanding beyond your limited ego to a more aware and more empowered self, where you gain an open-ended access to your greater potential. The intent of a Transpersonal Psychotherapist and Coach is to help you come to terms with life as a meaningful and fulfilling personal growth experience, no matter what challenges you are facing. This is done by guiding and facilitating you into a self-sustaining process of healing and awakening. Transpersonal (holistic, spiritual) Psychology believes that each human being has the capacity to find a source of Universal Love and fulfillment within oneself, or to put it another way, within one’s own Higher Consciousness. This is not about ungrounded fanciful ideals that we often encounter. This is a grounded, tested and long proven science, both ancient and modern. We know what works now to create healing, harmony, awareness and empowerment. You can know this also and be free to heal and grow and gain mastery over your own life.
Through the right understanding of your mind, conscious-awareness and highest potential, you can learn how to make each life challenge an opportunity to understand, nurture, and heal your mind and awaken your consciousness. As your mind heals and your consciousness naturally expands, the benefits flow on to the body, and also all other areas of your life. Through this process, you will gain confidence and trust in yourself. You become skilled at looking after your own mind in the face of any adversity, or any goal that you want to achieve. Life becomes less of a mystery. You gain the ability to tap into the real power that is within you - an inner-source of Love and security, which appears to be inexhaustible. From this new empowered standpoint, you are increasingly able to give and receive love without the ego fear and pain that used to come with it, and can better deal with issues that do arise. This newfound sense of security and confidence naturally improves every facet of your life, including your relationships, family life and work. In addition to this, you gain the motivation and ability to tap into and utilize a personal potential that you may have never realized existed.
Origans of Transpersonal Psychology
Transpersonal Psychology emerged in the latter half of the twentieth century. It integrates the spiritual wisdom teachings from all traditions with modern psychology. The worth of this information is tested through lived experience as well a scientific study. Buddhism for instance has a highly effective and sophisticated system of psychology that has been developed over the last 2,500 years. The Jewish and Christian wisdom teachings that use the Kabala are just as highly evolved and ancient. The Hindu teachings have existed even longer and have reached the heights of experiential and scientific development. The work of Carl Jung also revealed the deep teachings of the Gnostics in the West and the alchemy of the Chinese Taoists and the Western Hermeticists (rooted in ancient Egyptian teachings). Western mainstream psychology has been in existence for little more than 100 years. It would be foolish not to fully investigate the wealth of experience of these ancient cultures that lasted far longer than ours has so far. The results of these studies have proved their worth beyond doubt.
The Transpersonal Therapist
To be an effective guide, the transpersonal psychotherapist must be a living example of one who sincerely and effectively practises the art of inner-healing, self-realization and self-empowerment in his or her own life. The practitioner leads by example and aids the one seeking help through the wisdom of his or her own lived experience.

General counselling and Therapy
Transpersonal Psychology encapsulates all the therapy approaches within its spiritual, consciousness raising framework. You may be trying to approach your challenges from a spiritual, consciousness-raising perspective and find that mainstream counsellors and psychologists just don't understand. Transpersal Psychology will offer you a validating, client centered, consciousness expanding framework and process to heal, awaken and empower yourself with.
