about us

Spiritually Integrated Psychotherapy (SIP)

Spiritually Integrated Psychotherapy or SIP is a therapy technique that looks at the client’s spirituality in counseling and the process of change.

Benefits of Addressing Spirituality in Therapy

People often find meaning in life through their spirituality. At times, concerns can be tied back to limitations because belief systems. In addition, those same belief systems may cause people to feel like they are not living up to the expectations placed on them by their spiritual beliefs.

Providing spiritual therapy as one of many types of psychotherapy is a way to address those concerns. However, that is not the only benefit.

Growing and Achieving

Spiritual therapy addresses belief in a higher power, no matter who that higher power may be for you. Often when you can acknowledge a connection with a higher power, you can achieve things you were not able to achieve before.

Getting Rid of Negative Thoughts

Spiritual therapy has the benefit of being able to focus on mindfulness and work on getting rid of negative thoughts. Thoughts are powerful, and having the ability to address them utilizing a spiritual pathway can help to address harmful negative thoughts head-on.

Finding Peace

Often when you are seeking spiritual counseling, you are struggling to find peace. By addressing the spiritual aspect of your life and leaning on a higher power, you can often find comfort there and, ultimately, peace.

Recommitting to Your Values

When you are struggling, it can be easy to move away from your values and lose who you are. In SIP, you will look at those aspects of yourself.

This can help you identify behaviors that are against what you believe and ultimately recommit to the values that you want to maintain.

Psychotherapy Techniques in Spiritually Integrated Counseling

Has your psychotherapist asked you about your spirituality? This is an important step in identifying whether or not SIP is right for you.

Unfortunately, only about 30 percent of psychotherapists report talking to their clients about spirituality. The first step to integrating spirituality into your psychotherapy is talking to your therapist about it.
