Some people embrace spirituality as an integral part of being human and therefore want to know that their therapist has both the willingness and ability to value and work with this aspect of our existence.

At Ashburnham Place Therapy, we believe you have the right for your spirituality to be treated with the same gentle openness and non-judgment as every other aspect of who you are. With sensitivity and respect, we will support you in integrating this into your journey.

For example, during your therapy you might want to:

  • Draw strength and comfort from your faith
  • Reflect upon questions about suffering
  • Become aware of aspects of your religious or cultural heritage that may have been damaging to you
  • Identify new ways of nurturing your faith
  • Freely express doubts or inner-conflicts
  • Take time to discern a sense of “calling”
  • Seek healing from abuse by religious individuals or institutions
  • Consider how “letting go” or “surrender” is relevant to your life
  • Explore your life’s purpose
  • Consider death and beliefs about after-life
  • Share how sacred texts, stories, dreams, visions, songs or poetry is significant for you
  • Explore forgiveness

“You are not a human being in search of a spiritual experience. You are a spiritual being immersed in a human experience.”

Teilhard de Chardin

“Self-rejection is the greatest enemy of the spiritual life because it contradicts the sacred voice that calls us the “Beloved.” Being the Beloved constitutes the core truth of our existence.”

Henri J. M. Nouwen

“It is this belief in a power larger than myself and other than myself which allows me to venture into the unknown and even the unknowable.”

Maya Angelou
