Integrative Transformational Processing

Kelly Tobey is the founder of the Integrative Transformational Processing style of facilitation and offers courses to train others in the style. Participants will receive certification for attending courses and receive accreditation for the increasing levels of skill developed. Qualified participants can continue training towards becoming a certified Integrative Transformational Processing Facilitator. 

The following is meant to bring some awareness to the meaning of the practice of Integrative Transformational Processing as a style of facilitation. 

Integrative speaks to the idea that a full human experience of life comes from integrating a congruence between the best of our mental, physical, emotional and spiritual aspects.

Integrative also speaks to the idea that the facilitator find support tools that integrate with the client's needs.

Transformational Processing speaks to the idea that with proper support we can enter the process of transforming ourselves into a richer more authentic self.

Facilitator speaks to the idea of someone who is skilled at helping others find their own way with more ease than if they had to do it on their own.

A weakness in some healing approaches offered to the public is that a facilitator may only have one type of tool that they have skill in and they may be inclined to make the client's issue fit the tool. 

With Integrative Transformational Processing the facilitator will have a broad array of approaches because the intention is to use a tool that fits the client rather than trying to make the client fit a tool.  The facilitator will utilize whatever therapeutic, healing, or growth tool - or combination thereof - that will provide support for the client. At the same time the facilitator is trained to let go of attachments to any particular tools so to be freed up to utilize what is called for by intuition. This allows the Integrative Transformational Processing Facilitator to flow into the particular needs of the client  with a supporting modality that fits in that moment rather than getting caught up in trying to make the client fit a modality the facilitator is attached to using.

If an Integrative Transformational Processing Facilitator does not have an approach that will address the client's issue, they are trained to clearly inform the client that they cannot be of help with this challenge. If the facilitator knows of someone else that may have the tools to help they will refer the client in that direction.

An Integrative Transformational Processing Facilitator is trained to support the client in finding a path that is true to self. The facilitator is trained to offer ideas and support without attachment to how the client decides to use or not use those ideas. The client is supported in owning their own inner knowing of what is best for them. The client is supported in not giving their power away to some outside authority figure (including not giving their power away to the facilitator). 

This is based in the idea that being accountable for our own choices - being the author (authority) of our own lives; is a path that can support us in building an empowered, fulfilling life. 

Each Integrative Transformational Processing Facilitator will bring their personal uniqueness to the work. They are encouraged to study a variety of healing modalities and then to integrate what they resonate with from each modality into their own personal 'tool kit'. 

Integrative Transformational Processing Facilitators are trained in not getting attached to any particular modality form, as the attachment can block us from intuiting what is best for the client. Shifting from form to form when appropriate is basic to the Integrative Transformational Processing style. Every client's journey is unique so it follows that the best approach of support is to follow the uniqueness of the client. In a sense, the client unconsciously leads the facilitator towards the answers the client already has within. The facilitator's job is to point out and bring to the client's conscious awareness that which has previously been unconscious.

Integrative Transformational Processing Facilitators are trained to develop and utilize intuitional guidance when working with a client. 

Intuition is seen as a connection to Higher Mind / Collective Consciousness. Tapping into the benevolent aspect of Spirit for guidance leads to support for the client. 

This approach to intuitive connection is not tied to any particular religious system, philosophical system, or dogma. It is more generic in approach, honoring whatever feels true to the practitioner from any belief system, while leaving behind what does not fit for them.

Integrative Transformational Processing Facilitators are trained to work within the belief systems that the client is schooled in. The idea is that any belief system that a client has, represents a deeper reflection into the subconscious mind. Follow the reflections deep enough and they will lead to support in resolving any presenting issues.

Integrative Transformational Processing is focused on bringing awareness to what works for the individual. It is not focused on 'selling' anyone on some new belief system. People from any spiritual, religious, philosophical, or culture background can utilize this style of support without feeling their present belief systems will be threatened.

To get a further taste of the Integrative Transformational Processing approach you can read the article In The Direction Of The Ideal Healer . Following is an excerpt from the article: 

"An ideal healer will be conscious of the deeper loving intention and keep it in focus when approaching the territory of another's woundedness. The ideal healer will have let go of any attachment to having the person look at their wound or not. The ideal healer knows there is a time of ripeness and readiness for everyone and doesn't move in to dissolve the other person's layers of denial unless that person has given them an invitation of one form or another. The ideal healer works with, not against, others. The ideal healer is willing to go in and cut away the old patterns, the false roles and the destructive behaviors that don't serve the person. This is never done from a place of being against or of cutting at who that person really is in their essence. The ideal healer knows that healing comes from uniting energies, not fighting against them. The ideal healer is aware of being a vehicle for the healing to come through and be expressed. The healing is not owned by the healer. Healing comes from a place where all are joined. To think one can own healing as a separate entity is to not understand that healing comes from recognizing wholeness. Healing doesn't come from believing in separation. The ideal healer always sees past behaviors, masks and into the other's greatness and their wholeness and is willing to support the other's awareness of this as well. The ideal healer encourages the removal of all blocks that lay in the way of the other recognizing who they truly are. The ideal healer is open to using any form or tool that is called for through the intuitive guidance received from Spirit."
