Welcome to Cinematherapy.com
Have you ever left a movie theater full of
emotions, insights and inspiration? Did you want to share
your impressions and feelings right away? Did the movie make
you reflect on your own life experiences – struggles
as well as gifts?
Then you might be interested in taking this
a step further by making use of the transformational power
certain films could have for you when you take advantage of
their impact. Cinema therapy offers some tools for this process.
Cinema therapy can be a powerful catalyst for
healing and growth for anybody who is open to learning how
movies affect us and to watching certain films with conscious
awareness. Cinema therapy allows us to use the effect of imagery,
plot, music, etc. in films on our psyche for insight, inspiration,
emotional release or relief and natural change.
Used as part of psychotherapy, cinema therapy
is an innovative method based on traditional therapeutic principles.
Even outside a therapist’s office, following certain
guidelines for choosing films and watching them consciously
can support personal and spiritual growth. In the case of
long-standing psychological problems this is only recommended
in the context of psychotherapy.
