Empowerment Process

The empowerment process in psychotherapy most often works in four phases. The length of each phase is truly determined by each individual person and the issues that brought him or her to seek therapy.

The Journey

The therapeutic journey is not a complete cycle moving from phase one through four. Many times, cycling back to phase two from phase three or four may occur as together we examine and initiate changes. Incorporation may lead to further discoveries, which necessitates more examination and change. With each cycle, you go deeper and further in your ability to handle and develop a greater awareness of self while developing new patterns and beliefs. Every series gets you closer to your goals of change, growth, empowerment, and a healthier balance within yourself and in your life.

Keep in mind that the sequences do not follow a true pattern or circle. The therapeutic process moves in twists and turns. It may seem as though you have faced an issue/thought/feeling previously in the past, yet in reality coming back to it is on another very distinct level. Recognizing and understanding this process assists in the development of a different perspective of past issues etc. when we revisit them on your psychotherapeutic journey towards wellness, growth, change, and empowerment.
