Symbolic Space is a client-driven experiential approach to exploring and developing the self. This approach allows a client to inquire into deep personal symbols, metaphors, and their unique embodied knowledge. Symbolic Space work is guided by the experienced and knowledgeable facilitator within a safe and contained space. This work helps the client to take clarity, sense of direction, and their personal power to the next level. Through experiences within Symbolic Space a client builds deeper, more meaningful connections with the self and the world.
Symbolic Space approach is rooted in cognitive science and animistic techniques. These techniques allow a Symbolic Space facilitator to help a client become aware of sensations from non-linguistic parts of the mind and body. The client has an opportunity to experience them within a safe space and to integrate this experience into the conscious knowledge. Thus, a client experiences the shift in the Symbolic Space. In contrast to simply imagining the desired change and/or talking about what needs to happen, the client lives through the change during a session. This allows the conscious mind to incorporate this lived-through experience as part of personal knowledge into memory and use it to guide future behaviors and choices in life. As a result, the client develops a sense of psychological integration, gains access to their personal wisdom and power, as well as cultivates sense of wholeness and connectedness to the self and the world.
