What is Relational Psychotherapy?

Depth Psychology refers to therapy approaches that facilitate exploration of the subtle, unconscious, and transpersonal aspects of human experience.  A depth approach may include techniques that explore the unconscious, dreams, complexes, and archetypes.  Depth psychology is non-pathologizing and strength affirming. Generally these psychologies view the human being as often divided within self, with some thoughts, feelings, wishes, and memories accessible to awareness, and others hidden beneath the surface. Healing is associated with allowing what has been repressed, rejected, denied or ignored to come into awareness so that the person can understand, explore its significance and integrate it, allowing for a transformation.
