The story of the blind men and the elephant is a fitting metaphor for the sheer number of psychotherapy approaches that have been developed over the years. In the popular story, the six blind men described a different part of the elephant, and came up with various explanations of what it is – a wall, a rope, a leaf, a snake and a spear. While each of them is correct in their own perspective, none of them can fully comprehend the elephant as a whole.
In psychotherapy, there are many models explaining the source of our problems and paths to resolution. So, we have psychoanalysis, behaviorism, cognitive model, humanistic approach, and many more. Each approach focuses on generally one aspect of the proverbial elephant. Each approach makes some sense, and all are effective in their own ways. That said, they also have their own limitations.
This is why we have worked towards and refined a comprehensive, truly eclectic approach to therapy that seamlessly integrates all major approaches to therapy and is able to create sustainable, observable, measurable change, with minimal risk of relapse – Cognitive Hypnotic Psychotherapy.
