This whole-person approach creates deeper connections with yourself and others, allowing you to become a more integrated person. This therapy process is particularly collaborative. Instead of being led by the therapist it's actually you, the client, who is seen as the expert.
This works well for people who already know what must change, but need to be understood and supported in order to do so. Instead of telling you what to do, the role of the therapist is to help guide you into a better understanding of yourself within your larger world. This helps you reach self-actualization, which is a state of life when your potential is fully realized.
A humanistic therapy experience may involve getting a lot of big picture ideas about the direction of your life, and can teach you to trust discussing these high level things with another person. This relationship between client and therapist can become a model for healthy social interaction, at which point the focus of therapy may shift towards recreating similar relationships with others in your life.
The practice of Humanistic Therapy is more of an approach than a formal procedure, and is typically used alongside other forms of therapy. A good humanistic therapist will be able to determine if this is a right approach for you.
