What is Experiential Therapy?
The key word in Experiential Therapy is “experience”. This method has proven effective in helping people overcome unresolved issues. It helps to bring what is in the unconscious mind into the conscious mind through the use of music, art, objects, nature, experience, drama and creative expression.
Experiential Therapy is a state-or-the-art approach that is profoundly effective in helping people quickly progress beyond the limitations of traditional talk therapies. It draws on the reality that most people already know within themselves what is needed to overcome their relationship or behavioral issues. Even when rooted emotional defenses hinder access to one’s unique inner blueprint for personal growth, Experiential Therapy can unlock the internal doors for epiphanies and allow breakthrough experiences to surface. The process is not limited by a person’s ability to talk about their situation.

However, if you have studied a pilot’s manual, and clocked thousands of hours of training in an aircraft simulator, does your perspective change? Although your initial flight will be challenging, hands-on experience in the flight simulator reduces much of the unknown to adequately prepare you for the journey. Experiential Therapy serves as a simulator for you life journey by creating an experience you can draw on the move forward.
