What is Transpersonal Transitional Counseling?

Transition is change. In a broader sense however, transitions are life’s way of asking us to reexamine our present way of being. Transitions can be predictable and expected such as a graduation, or they can be unpredictable, such as the sudden death of a loved one or a traumatic accident. Whatever the degree or intensity of the event, every transition forces us to make changes to our existing life. And with change can come a refusal of acceptance. A major life transition is a rites-of-passage and takes us through specific stages of closing one chapter of our life, and starting a new one. It is often a very difficult adjustment as we encounter intense new feelings. Hannah works with adults and couples, children, adolescents and families to help them find acceptance as well as work through the resistance, anxieties, depression, grief, fear, sadness, and excitement that these transitions can evoke.

Transpersonal Therapy refers to the combination of the highest levels of theoretical and clinical perception and skill. It works with immediate awareness of feeling and experience in an individual’s present living. It promotes freedom, self-realization, and acceptance for all experiences without judgment. This modality sees the meaning and value of all things and the sacredness of these experiences in life’s journey. Transpersonal  Psychotherapy does not discount any part of life, it includes psychological, spiritual, mental, emotional, physical, social, environmental, sexual, and political experiences, etc. Trying to establish a “felt sense” in concrete terms helps individuals to have a more holistic view of an unresolved situation.
