About Us

What is Transpersonal and Experiential Psychotherapy (TEP)?

TEP is a unique blend of transformative personal growth and therapeutic methods. TEP is client centred engaging emotions, mind, body and spirit.

Principal Modalities & Practices:

Sandplay and Symbol Work:  provide a powerful doorway into our inner world and the transpersonal level of the psyche.  These processes allow us work with both conscious and unconscious material.

Voice Dialogue: works with the many voices in the Psyche.

Dreamwork: allows you to discover your own meaning to your dreams.

Emotional Processing: a safe, structured, energetic and powerful process used to work with unresolved issues and their accompanying emotions. 

Body Focus:  re-establishes connection to the body and feelings.

Meditation: used as a practice of being fully present in the moment to both inner and outer experience.

Transpersonal Breathwork: a powerful technique for accessing the vast territory of our inner landscape.
