INTEGRATIVE MULTI-DIMENSIONAL GROUP PSYCHOTHERAPY – West Hartford

Celeste Emelia Mattingly, LCSW has developed an innovative and enlightening ongoing Integrative Multi-Dimensional Group Psychotherapy. It is especially suited for those experiencing a Spiritual Emergence. It is designed to raise consciousness and develop multi-dimensional awareness of the emotional, physical, spiritual, and social matters which may be interfering with your quality-of-life (QOL) and your spiritual progress.

Group psychotherapy is a process in which a number of people (usually no more than fifteen) gather with a trained psychotherapist to reduce their suffering and thereby improve their QOL. It has the potential to achieve goals much quicker than individual psychotherapy. The following list includes some of the positive benefits of this group psychotherapy.

  • Emotional and spiritual growth through the processes of catharsis and modeling,
    – Assertive and Mindfulness Training.
    – and the reduction of the negative Egoic-Mind Paradigm (EMP).
  • Instill hope, a sense of belonging, approval, and acceptance (especially for being an empath).
  • Discover commonality and universality throughout myriads of spiritual paths and traditions.
  • Problem solve for self and others.
  • Create bonds and learn to develop boundaries.
  • Build trust, natural empathy, and altruism.
  • Increase coping, communication, and stress & anger management skills.
  • Explore and accept the spiritual and multi-dimensional realities of self and others.
  • Practice enlightening exercises and journey to other dimensions where compassion, cooperation, and illumination reign!

Held on Thursdays from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Cost: $50 per group

Participants will be screened for appropriateness and required to make a minimum commitment of 8 weeks. Insurance coverage may be arranged. Call (860) 586-8700 or visit www.celestialempowerment.com/integrativegrouppsychotherapy
