Cutting-edge approaches to therapeutic interpersonal dynamics
Transpersonal Dynamics offers approaches to the therapeutic encounter from the leading edge of quantum physics field theory and integrative psychology.
This book will show you how to get to ‘the heart of the matter’ within complex processes:
• How to ‘map’ and work on the edge between conscious and unconscious processes.
• How to identify and relate to different contact styles.
• How to unfold dynamics effectively with individuals, couples and groups.
• How to work with challenge and conflict as a pathway to intimate contact.
• How to apply archetypal and mythological approaches to depth work psychology.
Transpersonal Dynamics is the culmination of over 20 years of feedback about ‘what works’, gathered through delivering integrative and transpersonal training to counsellors, coaches, psychologists and psychotherapists who work with organisations, adults, couples, families, young people and children.
Using down-to-earth language in a practical way, this book addresses some of the gritty aspects of the therapeutic relationship, with the aim to inspire and support practitioners to take more risks to bring a collaborative, relational quality to their work.

TransPersonal Press was established to publish and promote transpersonal psychology, psychotherapy, counselling and coaching texts for professional practitioners and students.
Transpersonal approaches are an exciting, innovative and dynamic therapeutic approach in the professional psychological arena, yet they are woefully under-represented in the publishing world. We aim to address that discrepancy, encouraging transpersonally-oriented practitioners, trainers and supervisors to publish their material so that they can be more effectively disseminated throughout the larger therapeutic community. There is a growing awareness that transpersonal psychotherapy offers practitioners and clients a much deeper and wider context to work from – drawing from social, political, ecological and field theory perspectives to expand upon the established psychodynamic foundations of psychotherapeutic theory.
The transpersonal purely means beyond the personal; and can be defined as the way in which experiences and perspectives extend beyond the personal sense of self to encompass wider experiences of the world and cosmos. Transpersonal approaches delve deeply into the nature of the Self, as a relational experience, with oneself, external relationships, the world around us, and the drive for making meaning in an existentially based reality, often using phenomenological approaches to explore the here and now of ‘who am I in relation to the world around me.’
TransPersonal Press’s mission is to bring transpersonal psychology, psychotherapy, and counselling fully into the publishing market place amongst the plethora of professional texts from other therapeutic schools, so that it’s dynamic application to the world can more fully serve the professional community.
