Welcome to Integral Consciousness Center • ICCTM
Integral Consciousness Center (ICC) incorporates the bio/psycho/social/transpersonal aspects of the human being and provides a multi-perspective theoretical methodology to therapeutic healing. This integrative process often leads clients to a rediscovery of an authentic & deeply integrated sense of self. ICC utilizes an integrative approach to inner development and psychotherapy that incorporates techniques & methodologies from various psychotherapeutic approaches although many of its principles also focus on human consciousness. ICC’s core therapeutic focus is on integrating the various and/or disconnected parts of the psyche into a coherent whole. This results in a significant reduction in chronic self-destructive patterns and psychological symptoms that connote an imbalance in the psyche. The human psyche is vastly more complex than any single theory can accommodate and ICC caters to this complexity. ICC offers a healing approach that focuses on working with multiple states of consciousness that oscillate between the extreme edges of the psyche including the Dissociated, Fragmented, Individuated & Transpersonal. This work assists the psyche to evolve into a fuller integrated sense of self and a deeper connection with one own’s inner guidance.
The Therapeutic Process
I have been trained in various approaches that speed up the process of healing & integration in my clients compared to traditional psychotherapy approaches. I address self-destructive patterns by helping my clients get to the core of their issues. I help clients empower themselves in a way where they rely on their own internal guidance system that gives the space for their true self to emerge. The therapeutic process also presupposes a Humanistic, existential & transpersonal stance in which there is a fundamental drive in people towards maturity, freedom, wholeness and expressing the self creatively. The goal of this approach to therapy is the ‘synthesising’ and integrating of the various parts of the self into a unified whole around a central core. ICC’s theoretical underpinnings have evolved over the years to reflect in techniques that focus on creating a therapeutic shared space & process necessary for the inner guidance & resources of the client to emerge & unfold. Examples of some of these techniques include the positive use of the will through creative visualisation, dis-identification exercises, creativity, higher consciousness and the development of interpersonal healing and integration through the client-therapist dynamics.
It is our greatest pain that may contain a deeper purpose. The therapist/healer and client enter into those places most feared, rejected and avoided for the purpose of healing through suffering, ultimately experiencing wholeness in a sacred therapeutic space. Every client’s experiential and theoretical therapeutic process differs as a reflection of their own unique journey of healing. My therapeutic approach with clients is helping them reconnect with their internal reference point that has the ability to actualize, integrate, heal and transcend the full spectrum of their human conditioning. The result is a reduction in and transformation of the initial presented symptoms and conditions that originally felt debilitating, dysfunctional and imprisoning.

Healing from Complex Trauma (CPTSD) & Rediscovering Our Lost Parts
ICC views the full spectrum of trauma & chaos as interwoven into the fabric of life and the genetic blueprint of the individuation & growth process potentially serving as catalysts towards life altering shifts in consciousness which lead to sustainable transformation and wholeness. The lost & shattered pieces of the psyche begin to integrate into the core of the personality during the therapeutic process resulting in a deeper connection with one’s essence. The sacred shared space throughout our sessions allows clients a sense of safety & healing in a way that doesn’t retraumatize them when difficult material resurfaces. As you create a foundation of a fuller embodied actualization of the disconnected parts of your psyche & deep transcendence of the core wounds and shadows of your personality, you will discover a long term transformation, sustained emotional balance, expanded insight, greater buoyancy in the face of life’s challenges, and access to your creative potentials and manifestations.
What Dr. Michelle Miller’s Clients are saying…
“An effective cure does not come through alleviation of the emotional and psychosomatic symptoms involved, but through their temporary intensification, full experience, and conscious integration.”
