Psychological health means health
Stefano’s approach to psychology addresses the development, health, and realization of his clients. He doesn’t just look at traditional psychopathology. He is specially interested in human growth and optimal healthy states. Integral Psychology addresses the development of a wide range of bio-psycho-spiritual potentialities. Stefano strives to not only treat the symptoms of poor psychological health, but also help his clients becoming mature, creative individuals, contributing to the common good. This model regards spirituality as a fundamental human dimension, involved in psychological health.
Humanity today more than ever needs concrete, honest, not superficial people, with open minds and hearts, who aim at essential and not ephemeral values, who are not obsessed with pleasure, image and success, who are tolerant, respectful of authority and confident in life.
According to the integral vision of transpersonal psychology, established by Ken Wilber, human individuality is constituted as a set of potentialities that are expressed in the bodies: physical, emotional, mental and spiritual.
The physical body is the seat of the feelings,
the emotional body includes the emotions,
the mental body contains the thoughts and all the rational activity,
whereas the spiritual body is the seat of the highest qualities, such as love and the intuitive intellect.
Being able to integrate the dimensions of being, and understanding at what level one’s own emerging needs are located, is a major factor in one’s health and growth. Therefore it is worth paying attention and listening to the requests coming from the bio-psycho-spiritual unity, and seeking for expert help if necessary. In this way, one can achieve a state of optimal health that will facilitate the full expression of one’s potential, and help becoming more aware individuals, that can contribute to the growth and evolution of humanity.
