Personal Therapeutic Retreat

A personal therapeutic retreat (PTR) is an opportunity to set aside larger blocks of time to focus more intensively on issues that persistently interrupt one’s growth towards a happier and more fulfilled life. It can also be a time for retreat from the busyness we all experience and a chance to return to our deeper values and core Self. Usually a combination of both, the focus here, of course, is determined by a collaboration of therapist and client. Read more information here...

Complimentary Approaches - Links and Information

Complementary Therapies are healing techniques that have existed in Western as well as other cultures for centuries. They often complement and enhance traditional Western
medicine and psychotherapy. At ClearPath we have always collaborated with
practitioners of various complementary approaches in order to enhance our
psycho-therapeutic services.
