Orthodox psychotherapy

Orthodox psychotherapy is a form of psychotherapy that integrates Orthodox Christian spirituality and theology into the therapeutic process. It aims to help individuals achieve spiritual, emotional, and psychological healing through a combination of spiritual practices, such as prayer, confession, and communion, as well as psychological techniques.

This approach views the human person as a unity of body, mind, and spirit and believes that emotional and psychological problems can have spiritual roots. Therefore, the therapist in this approach works with the individual to help them identify and address spiritual obstacles that may be contributing to their emotional or psychological distress.

Orthodox psychotherapy is based on the teachings of the Orthodox Church and draws on the works of early Christian writers, such as St. John Chrysostom, St. Basil the Great, and St. Gregory the Theologian. The therapy is conducted by trained Orthodox Christian therapists who have a deep understanding of the Orthodox faith and its practices.

The ultimate goal of Orthodox psychotherapy is to help individuals achieve a deeper relationship with God and live a more fulfilling and meaningful life in accordance with Orthodox Christian teachings.
