Celestial Psychology® techniques may include role-play, controlled movement, observation of your facial expressions and physical reactions to various subjects, and interactive visualization. One traditional technique that comes from Gestalt is the “empty-chair” exercise. When you have anxieties concerning past conflicts with another individual, especially a loved one, Celeste may ask you to focus on an empty chair in the room, visualize the person sitting in the chair and engage in dialogue with the individual. Celeste may also direct you to assume both roles in the verbal exchange. The key to Gestalt techniques is emphasis on the present, just as with Celestial Psychology®.
The therapy offered at Psychotherapy Healing Services, LLC focuses not on how you felt about an event in the past, but how you feel today. Celeste does not attempt to second-guess or interpret your emotions and reactions; rather, you are encouraged to express and assume responsibility for your own thoughts, feelings and actions. Self-defeating patterns can be released so that you become free to live in the moment. If you are seeking to break free of old patterns, assume control of your life, and develop you core self you can benefit greatly from Celestial Psychology® techniques.
