Transpersonal Therapy & Counselling

Updated: July 23, 2022

Transpersonal Psychotherapy, also known as Transpersonal Psychology, is a spiritual form of psychotherapy which emerged in the 60s via Abraham Maslow and Victor Frankl.  It was also influenced by the work of Carl Jung.  The fundamental principle of this approach relates to the name, ‘transpersonal’ which means ‘beyond the personal’, valuing the spiritual and transcendent aspect of humans.

What Is Transpersonal Therapy?

Transpersonal psychotherapy comes from the humanistic tradition of psychology.  It aims to delve into the depth of individuals by exploring human growth and facilitating contact with the part of us that lives beyond the ego.  It is underpinned by an integration of world spiritual teachings and contemporary psychology.


This approach attempts to free our true essence, facilitating and encouraging human growth toward transcendence of obstructions that limit human potential, for example due to a mental health condition.  Transpersonal therapy pays attention to the whole person, that is, our spiritual, social, emotional, intellectual, physical, and creative parts.


This means we can heal and grow and feel more complete, with a more comprehensive understanding of ourselves, our abilities, and relationships.  And learn useful skills to navigate these areas more optimally, strengthening our internal abilities for powerful and long-lasting change.  This approach values personal development, healing, and growth as parts of the actualising process, because as Maslow himself believed:


Our experiences, actions, creativity, and altruism are not found in our personality, they must be excavated from our essence.

About Transpersonal Counselling At Phinity Birmingham

Our Transpersonal therapists will help you learn about your internal resources and see yourself as a part of your process toward growth and improved living.


The therapeutic relationship is regarded a means for change so is especially important to transpersonal therapists, and will therefore be a point of focus for the work.  So your therapist will attempt to foster a relationship of equality, so it won’t feel like there is an imbalance of power.


They will utilise their empathic skills to connect with you, guide and encourage insight, and remain present, authentic, open-minded, respectful, curious, and view what you bring as new, and unique to you, whilst remaining aware of themselves.  This is the climate in which they will facilitate healing and growth.  Transpersonal therapy sessions are 50 minutes and normally take place at the same time and day each week.
