Transpersonal Psychology is a field of psychology that promotes the realization of human potential through the exploration and discovery of different states of consciousness and asserts that each has multiple layers that hold their own realities and systems. It proposes that people can move back and forth through the different stages of consciousness. TP does not subscribe to a specific unified model of psychotherapy nor is it religious. TP integrates the spiritual, social, emotional, intellectual, physical and creative being into one complete element.
Energy psychology focuses on the relationship between thoughts, emotions, sensations, and behaviors, and known bioenergy systems (such as meridians and the biofield). Within an EP framework, emotional and physical issues are seen, and treated, as bio-energetic patterns within a mind-body-energy system. The mind and body are thought to be interwoven and interactive within this mind-body-energy system, which involves complex communication involving neurobiological processes, innate electrophysiology, psychoneuroimmunology (PNI), consciousness, and cognitive-behavioral-emotional patterns.
Depth psychological approaches help individuals become aware of what has been cast out of consciousness or is not yet able to be known. Healing is associated with allowing what has been repressed, rejected, denied or ignored to come forward so that the person can understand, explore its significance and integrate it, allowing for a transformation in consciousness. Depth Psychology also attends to the way unconscious processes express themselves in society and culture, and how culture affects the psyche.
