Psychology is currently making a big revolutionary step. It moves from focussing on language, motivation, cognition, emotion and the brain, to the spatial structure of experience. “Where in the imaginary space in and around us do we feel, see and hear the things that occupy us?” Researchers in Spatial cognition concluded that navigation in the 3-D environment necessary for moving, is the foundation of all other mental activities too, The brain is a navigation device.
In the world of psychotherapy and coaching therapists found that knowing the location of concepts, like values, beliefs, images of people, the past and the future, made a great difference in understanding psychological issues. And directly how to treat them. Issues with overweight, trauma, depression, intimate relationships, grief, motivation and many others, are understood swiftly. The progress in psychotherapy is immediately clear for client and therapist, when checked in the same 3-D space in and around the person.
