Spiritual Psychotherapy is a non-religious honouring of the mystery and depth of the psyche/soul. Certainly not all problems are spiritual in nature, nevertheless crises, trauma, loss, illness and the accumulation of hurt and disappointment have a spiritual as well as psychological and physical impact. Current research continues to find that many, if not most people draw upon their spirituality when encountering significant problems.
By recognizing that spirituality may also serve as a source of solutions or a source of problems equips the spiritually-oriented Psychotherapist with the knowledge required to address the range, richness and complexity of healing. Spirituality cannot be separated from psychotherapy as some of our life crises wound us so deeply that they carry a special power and spiritual meaning. Spirituality can address the unfathomable and uncontrollable in our lives, speaking the language of suffering, compassion, transformation, acceptance, surrender, hope, sacredness, transcendence, forgiveness, faith, joy, wisdom, guidance, synchronicity......
