Have a nagging sense you are more than you are managing to be? And long to feel connected to something bigger and more meaningful than your daily life? Or explore your spiritual side? Transpersonal therapy is for you. 

What is transpersonal therapy?

Transpersonal therapy fuses psychotherapeutic thought with spiritual traditions and tools to help you fully understand yourself and reach your potential. 

It looks beyond just your mental wellbeing to also embrace your social, physical, creative, and spiritual sides, and the you that is 'transpersonal', meaning beyond just your own frame of reference. 

How does transpersonal psychotherapy work? 

Like other therapies rising from the humanistic school of thought, transpersonal psychotherapy has a positive perspective. It doesn’t seek what is ‘wrong’ with you, but helps you recognise the inner resources and qualities that you can harness to face challenges and feel balanced.  

What is a transpersonal session at Harley TherapyTM like? 

Transpersonal sessions can be varied, depending on what issue you want to work on and on what tools you and your therapist decide to try.

So as well as talking through things, sessions can include non traditional tools that are increasingly supported by research, such as  mindfulness meditation, visualisation, hypnosis and yoga. Other tools can include working with dreams and creativity, breathing exercises and movement, or doing dream or inner child work. 

What issues can transpersonal therapy help me with?

  • addictions 
  • anxiety 
  • depression
  • feeling lost and hopeless
  • lack of identity and identity crisis
  • life balance
  • loneliness and disconnection
  • low self-esteem 
  • phobias
  • stress 
  • relationship problems.

Is transpersonal therapy legitimate?

Absolutely. A transpersonal accreditation is in line with all other accreditations, involving at least four years of schooling and time spent as a trainee. It is a proper form of psychotherapy that means a therapist is also eligible to belong to any of the main registrars in the UK like the BACP. Of course here in the UK anyone can say they are a therapist, so it is important to check your therapists credentials. Here at Harley Therapy we take the guesswork out of the process by only choosing highly qualified, accredited, and experienced therapists to be on our team. 

What are the techniques used in transpersonal therapy?

Like all forms of psychotherapy, talking through your thoughts, feelings, and experiences forms part of the process. The transpersonal approach can be different in that it is holistic, so it also looks at your social life, your self-care, your physical wellbeing, and your sense of spirituality. Techniques used can include things like mindfulness meditation, visualisation, dreamwork, creativity, breathwork, and inner child exercises. 

What is the role of a transpersonal therapist?

The role of a transpersonal therapist is to help you discover who you are, what you have to offer, and what steps you can now take to create a life that you feel good being in. A life that feels authentic to you, and that leaves you feeling balanced both mentally, emotionally, physically, and spiritually.
