Katatim Imaginative Psychotherapy (KIP)

How It Works?

Catatime Imaginative Therapy is a therapeutic approach that emphasizes creativity, emotional expression, and the use of mental imagery to explore and understand psychological processes. The basis of this therapy is the combination of elements of psychoanalysis and Jungian analytical psychology, with special emphasis on creative and imaginative thinking.
During therapy, clients have the opportunity to freely and creatively express their inner emotions, thoughts and memories. The so-called through the process of "catatime imagination", clients immerse themselves in mental images and, under the guidance of the therapist, gradually uncover and interpret these images.

Catatime imaginative therapy is not only based on verbal conversation, but also offers clients the opportunity to visualize and process deeper emotions and subconscious content. This process can help to surface emotions that may be suppressed or difficult to access, thereby promoting healing.

The role of the therapist is to lead and support the process, observing the client's reactions and helping them to understand their emotions more deeply. Imaginal narratives and symbolic elements that unfold during therapy can help clients better understand themselves and their psychological conflicts.

Catatime imaginative therapy is used to treat a variety of psychological problems, including post-traumatic stress disorder, emotional difficulties, depression, and low self-esteem. In addition, the therapeutic method provides an opportunity for personal development, self-reflection and improving the quality of life.

Therapy is flexible and customizable to the client's needs, and by supporting opportunities for creative expression, clients are given unique and powerful tools for emotional healing and psychological development.
