Coherence Therapy is a form of Psychotherapy, which aims to provide realisations and reveal deep meanings, which are the cause of persistent symptoms or problems.
Coherence Therapy helps to retrieve and transform emotional schemas and structures of reality, which have been adaptively embedded earlier in life. It forms a basis in neurobiology and constructivism.
Many symptoms can be alleviated alongside the negative behavioural patterns that they are linked to. It is an experiential form of therapy. The methodology which facilitates the Coherence Therapy process is normally much shorter than traditional methods of Psychotherapy. Individuals find this course beneficial as it can potentially provide insights from the first session. This type of therapy recognises that unconscious and conscious are inextricably linked to our psychological well being and emotional health.
Some clients may reach deep into their own belief systems and discover the reasons behind their symptoms.
Symptoms that can benefit from Coherence Therapy are:
A Coherence Therapist will use methods and techniques to aid people in altering root beliefs causing specific symptoms or issues. These techniques can create transformations and realisation at the core, which can last a long time.
It can be used with families, couples and individuals. Some therapists have found it to be very helpful for work with adolescents since the methods give way for individuals to reach changes when they feel ready.
Coherence Therapy aims to reach into an individual’s unconscious to find the hidden meaning behind emotional meanings (causing symptoms) that was embedded there at an earlier stage of life.
You could compare it to diving into the ocean, searching for a long lost ship hidden there.
Depth is viewed as a highly successful method of achieving results in Psychotherapy. By revealing the individual’s core beliefs, therapists can help change the core belief which ultimately results in the individual realising that their symptoms are merely affirmations or defence mechanisms, used to protect that old world-view and structure of reality.
Coherence Therapy can benefit individuals suffering agoraphobia, alcoholism, attention deficit, complex issues in bereavement, compulsive behaviours, low self-esteem, procrastination, intimacy avoidance, rage responses, underachieving and many more.
These are usually described as symptoms, rather than disorders, as the basis underpinning Coherence Therapy is that symptoms are expressions of an underlying, unconscious root cause.
When an individual attends therapy, the therapist will start by encouraging the person to search for ‘emotional truths’, usually developed in childhood which now form current symptoms. They help the individual to establish the symptoms which are in fact necessary as well as those unhelpful symptoms, which don’t serve them.
Some symptoms could be linked to a different coherent reaction, as therapists believe that many symptoms are created to preserve or promote self-realisation. Each symptom type is related to the overall structure of the individual’s psychology.
The idea is that all symptoms will eventually disappear once emotional truths are revealed.
A therapist must attune to the person in a highly empathic way to ensure the therapy is successful. With supportive therapists, individuals can reach transformations in a small number of sessions.
