How do we process our experience of sound - indeed, how do we process any experience? The pioneering Principal of The British Academy of Sound Therapy, Lyz Cooper and myself, pondered this question over many years. Our model of experiential processing is the answer.
The model is now taught on the Diploma courses at The Academy and informs my work on a daily basis. It does not just explain how the therapeutic process can evolve, it explains how all experience can evolve when one is motivated by personal growth.
Inherent in the model is the understanding that all states have the potential for positive movement toward human flourishing - something both Lyz and myself have witnessed with clients, groups, and communities over many years.
The vision and language of the model is universal, for the potential for growth is inherent in all. The process it describes is a non-linear, dynamic process. The model enables one to identify one's response to any experience and the potential inherent in it.
