What is Psychotherapy? Psychotherapy can be considered an alternative healing therapy that involves learning to increase self awareness in order to realize maximum human potential, thereby helping us to live more authentically with improved relationships, professional and financial successes, balance and grace. Psychotherapy is a general term describing many specific types of therapy such as talk therapy, narrative therapy, psycho-social therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, interpersonal therapy and counseling. Psychotherapy treatments are commonly used for psychological problems on an individual basis, with couples, families and groups. Forms of communication used in psychotherapy healing can include writing, artwork, music and dramatic theater. A psychotherapy practitioner may be a psychologist, marriage and family therapist, occupational therapist, counselor, psychiatric nurse, licensed clinical social worker or psychiatrist.   What we refer to as psychotherapy medicine has been practiced as far back as ancient Greece.  It is thought that the first recorded use of psychotherapy was performed by Dr. Josef Breuer.  Dr. Breuer would go on to be a close friend, teacher and collaborator with Sigmund Freud.  Dr. Breuer observed a woman who suffered from paralysis felt better after she ‘talked’ to him about her symptoms.  It is thought Sigmund Freud employed this ‘talking cure’ form of treatment and later created what we refer to as ‘psychoanalysis’ in Vienna, Austria in 1881.  A trained neurologist, he began working with patients who were classified as hysterical.  He continued practicing psychoanalysis into the 1930’s.   His psychotherapy treatment work was later built on by Karl Jung, Anna Freud and Otto Frank among others.  In the 1940’s, pioneer Carl Rogers brought forth a humanistic approach which rose to prominence by the 1950’s.  Psychoanalysis, humanism and Ivan Pavlov’s work in behaviorism laid the cornerstones for teaching psychology in the United States today.   Psychotherapy is an alternative healing therapy that is a constantly growing. Today there are over 450,000 licensed psychotherapists in the United States.  General research shows that the average length of psychotherapy treatment is between 6 and 10 sessions.  It has been reported that Americans spend about $55 billion on psychotherapy annually.     All Things Healing promotes psychotherapy, an alternative healing therapy, with psychotherapy information presented in articles and video form.  For more and updated information, visit us online regularly!

The least useful and yet most overused piece of advice I’ve both proffered and received is, “Follow your passion!” Hearing that as a high school student is about as helpful as a tissue paper rain jacket. Everybody loves to tell you to follow your passion but nobody seems to have any equally simple advice for how to a.) figure out what the hell your passion might be, b.) how to make money doing what you’re passionate about, or most rarely, c.) what the word “passion” even means...


Editor's Note from Debbie Allen: Sometimes simplistic statements of encouragement can fall flat on the ears of a young person who is trying to find their path in life. It's important to really listen and then tell a story of how you discovered your passion rather than offering simple platitudes. When we raise the question about what it means to experience passion in life, we need to look at what inspires both curiousity about the larger world as well as what drives us to think critically and learn in a discerning way.

I found it to be a wonderful depiction of a young woman integrating her shadow and ultimately being destroyed by it within a psychologically intense battle ground of the theatre of the ballet...

What we want most in life is love. What we're most afraid of is love. Sad but true. Millions of people are plagued by the ambivalence: You want it and push it away. Just when you find someone who does love you, can love you and wants to love you, you sabotage the relationship in some way...

In reality, of course, most people end up with lots of constraining relationships, which come with lawns to mow, coffee stains, kids struggling with dyslexia or ADHD, life-extending brain surgery, or not, for the 15-year-old family cat — all of it. Love relationships, especially, seem to unfold in messy, unplanned ways...

One of the simplest and yet most powerful things I work on with my clients is encouraging them to feel their feelings. In today’s busy world, so many of us try to avoid our feelings of discord and focus only on what feels good. At a glance, this way of thinking can seem pretty healthy...

In a field one summer’s day, a Grasshopper was hopping about, chirping and singing to its heart’s content. An Ant passed by, bearing along with great toil an ear of corn he was taking to the nest. “Why not come and chat with me.” the Grasshopper said, “instead of toiling and moiling in that way?” “I am helping to lay up food for the winter,” the Ant said, “and recommend you to do the same..."

Along the disputed frontier between religion and science, there have always been the peacemakers looking for a way to bridge the gap, or at least to minimize the collateral damage of battle. One method for achieving this is just better cartography — a more definite line of demarcation between the two domains, and more solid agreements about staying on your own side of the fence...

One of the oldest myths in psychology is that our minds are separate from our bodies. Today, however, there is an overwhelming amount of research that shows how our mental health is directly influenced by our brains and biology...


Editor´s Note from Debbie Allen: Neuropsychology research is showing that there is a correlation between how we care for our physical bodies and emotional well being. Integrative Medicine is a field that appreciates a more holistic approach to health care. Read more about the research behind this.



by Russell Collins, PsyD

To work effectively with couples, you have to have a theory. By theory, I mean a model of how people think, feel and, most importantly, interact. The point of any psychotherapy model is to illuminate the wheels and pulleys that keep the destructive interactions cycling around and around, and to identify the true levers of change...

When adversity and unpleasant experiences present themselves in our lives, there are usually lessons to be learned from them. Paying attention to them is often what is called for before we can let go and move on. Usually what is called for first is that we experience our feelings about what has happened...

The natural vs. pharmaceutical treatment argument is not a new one. Many people believe that herbal and homeopathic remedies are safer and more effective than manmade chemicals. Others believe that scientific research should be more highly valued, and there is undeniably more research on pharmaceutical remedies than natural medicine, simply due to funding dollars alone...


Editor Note from Sherri Carter: Ryan Rivera, expert and author, offers alternatives for panic attacks, which treat the underlying cause rather than symptoms alone.

When You Hear Your Partner, Are You Listening?

by David McCann, Ph.D. & Janis McCann, Ph.D.

The art of listening is the heart of communication. We believe that if we do not come together and listen to one another, we cannot have a healthy culture. But if we do sit down and listen to one another, we can remake the world—one relationship at a time.
