Transpersonal Life Coaching

Transpersonal Life Coaching

What is Transpersonal Life Coaching? The focus of traditional coaching is to primarily help a person formulate and reach specific goals such as life, relationship and career goals. The transpersonal coach however approaches your goals at a far deeper level, reaching into the inner values, needs and longings of the whole person, in mind, body, and especially soul.
 
Transpersonal Coaching can help you become fulfilled both on an external and internal level to a full life that creates greater levels of personal joy, completeness, excellence and success in the world. Because success in life, your career and relationships can only truly be achieved when a new level of wellness, balance and inner peace is achieved.
 
The Transpersonal Coach is your partner who will enable you to live and work more fully and deeply, with heart and soul, with purpose and meaning. He facilitates an alignment with your authentic self and spirit in all aspects of being. This journey to self-completeness then is bound to give rise to success in all aspects of your life.
 
Pieter also offers as an added option along with transpersonal coaching, an healing technique called ‘therapeutic imagery’. Therapeutic Imagery is a powerful technique that uses images and imagination to alter behavior. The psychologist H.S. Sullivan used the term, “parataxic distortion” to describe the inclination to skew perception of others and events based on fantasy. It is attributing a causal relation between events that are in fact completely independent of each other.
To give an example: a man meets somebody he likes and falls in love with, and then starts regarding his lover as a child that he needs to protect and control. In reality he has been the victim of a very insecure childhood himself and projects this insecurity on his lover. It is a kind of transference that is common and actually hard to avoid. We learn after all through our past experiences and use that knowledge to assess new situations. Sometimes our reactions and interpretations of people and situations may be so distorted that it becomes problematic and we need help.
Therapeutic imagery can help to recreate this situation and reinterpret it, and teach the client to see it in a different light and adapt healthier responses.
