IPNB PSYCHOTHERAPY OF AUSTIN | AUSTIN, TX
What is Intensive Therapy?
Intensives are long form sessions, usually 3-4 hours in length, in which you can dive deeply into a complex issue. These sessions are absolutely ideal for people who like more time for their systems to unwind, want to work on a specific issue with more depth or are looking for deep exploration. These sessions are not meant to be ongoing therapy, they are merely a different way of diving into integration. If you are looking for a clinician who can see you on an ongoing weekly basis or if you are in crisis, this might not be the best fit for you. If you have identified a specific difficulty, if you enjoy self-exploration, if you travel frequently or are looking to explore how therapy might benefit you, then this may be something you want to explore. The costs vary by therapist, as do the times available. Please contact the therapist you'd like to work with directly with any questions about fees and logistics.
What does an Individual Intensive session look like?
In these sessions, your therapist will work with you to help identify an area(s) to work on, and explore that issue in depth with you. We do a lot of experiential work here. The reason for that is, the brain in its wisdom has a pretty big separation between your cognitive parts and your feeling parts. Because of this, there are often issues that you can't think and talk your way out of, the "whoosh" comes up from your gut and you just can't seem to shift it, no matter how hard you try to talk it out. We want to create a space in which all of your brain can process a neural network in an integrated way. That means we use embodied techniques like Somatic Experiencing and yoga. We use image based work such as Sand Tray and Internal Family Systems, and trauma work such as Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing, and Emotional Transformation Therapy, along with deep connection and talking about the issue to help your mind have a different experience that can translate to the rest of your life as soon as is right for you. Please contact the therapist you'd like to work with directly with any questions you may have about what their Intensive sessions look like.
What does a Couple's Intensive session look like?
In these sessions, your therapist will help identify the painful pattern, help you learn to identify it, and help you explore the idea of big change and if it is something you are ready to commit to. These sessions often look like a weaving back and forth of personal work with your partner present, and turning back to each other to practice the tools you are learning in real time. We believe that good relationship with yourself is so important to good relational health with a partner, and we want to help you be with both kinds of relationship in a healthy way. Our therapists focus on 5 planes of intimacy: physical, emotional, sexual, intellectual and spiritual. Please contact the therapist you'd like to work with directly with any questions you may have about what their Couple's Intensive sessions look like.
