The traditional psychotherapy model has focused on healing past wounds and addressing emotional distress. While this is important, there is a growing movement in the field that believes in a more holistic approach that addresses psychological issues and helps individuals find their purpose and mission in life. This holistic approach is what we at Nexum HC call “growth-oriented psychotherapy.”
The Focuses Of Growth-Oriented Psychotherapy
Growth-oriented psychotherapy takes a strengths-based approach, focusing on what is going well in an individual’s life rather than solely on what is not. This approach recognizes that we are all capable of growth and change and that everyone has the potential to reach new heights of human emotion. This type of therapy is designed to help individuals explore their values, beliefs, and aspirations and use this newfound understanding to create a fulfilling and meaningful life.
Passions and Interests
One of the critical aspects of growth-oriented psychotherapy is to help individuals identify and tap into their passions and interests. Finding their interests is done by exploring what brings them joy, fulfillment, and excitement and then using these to shape a personal mission statement. This mission statement serves as a roadmap for the individual, guiding them toward a life filled with purpose and meaning.
In addition to finding purpose and mission in life, growth-oriented psychotherapy helps individuals develop the skills and resilience needed to overcome life’s challenges. The skills include working on emotional regulation, communication, coping strategies, and learning to manage stress and anxiety. These skills help individuals in their personal lives and can be applied to work and other areas of life, allowing individuals to thrive in all aspects of their lives.
Another essential aspect of growth-oriented psychotherapy is to help individuals form a positive and supportive network of relationships. Developing relationships includes working on relationships with family, friends, and partners and building a supportive community of like-minded individuals who share similar interests and values. This network of relationships supports and encourages individuals to pursue their goals and dreams with greater confidence and determination.
Conclusion and Next Steps
In conclusion, growth-oriented psychotherapy is a unique and innovative approach to therapy that goes beyond just healing. It helps individuals find purpose and mission in life, develop the skills and resilience needed to overcome life’s challenges and build a positive and supportive network of relationships. This therapy propels individuals to greater heights of human emotion, helping them live a fulfilling and meaningful life.
