the therapy i had before is the integral counseling model, which incorporates eastern spiritual approaches to wellbeing with western approaches to psychotherapy. one of the teachers of this practice is ken wilbur. as a client of this practice i actually have a difficult time describing it, but i think one thing is that it helped me heal from my major depression episode by paying attention to mind, body, and spirit - so, one big thing i learned was to pay close attention to where feelings come up in my body and how to tolerate them instead of self-destructing because of them, how to let them move through my body and my spirit/mind. this was huge for me because i had always used dissociation to deal with difficult feelings, which was very painful for me. i also did a lot of energy work with my T that incorporated some approaches that verged on the psychic realm and were very meaningful and powerful...i mean, even if you're skeptical about that stuff, which i am to a certain extent, it was still very helpful to explore the feelings that came up in those sessions.

CBT is interesting to me bcs it seems so rational and mind-centered in comparison. i like noticing how it complements the other things i learned - i don't think i would get as much out of CBT if i hadn't done all this other work with my body and my feelings.

that's great about your breakthrough! i have a hard time being assertive with people on the phone too. i tend to just blame myself for problems.

take care,
