Psychosynthesis is known as the psychology with a soul. Roberto Assagioli, psychoanalyst, neurologist and the founder of psychosynthesis was way ahead of his time by incorporating mindfulness and spirituality into western psychiatry and psychology. He was a major influence in the fields of humanistic and transpersonal psychology.
Piero Ferrucci, psychosynthesis psychotherapist, philosopher, student and collaborator of Assagioli writes,
‘…the principles that Roberto Assagioli and his pupils have enunciated in the last hundred years now find a precise correspondence in the data and models of neuroscience.’
Today, the theory and practice continue to evolve and grow as rigorously trained practitioners integrate new philosophies, ideas and evidence-based practice – such as neuroscience – into their theory and practice.
Psychosynthesis is a process of Self-development which draws on more traditional models of psychotherapy such as attachment theory and psychodynamics as well as knowledge learned from neuroscience combined with methods tried and tested throughout the ages, such as meditation and creative work. There are no religious or spiritual teachings involved but it does encompass themes such as life purpose, values and meaning which are classified as being aspects of the higher Self.
This short video talks about the higher consciousness in terms consistent with Psychosynthesis:
I trained and gained my qualifications from the Institute of psychosynthesis in London.
If you feel that you could benefit from the kind of holistic approach to counselling and psychotherapy that psychosynthesis offers then contact me to book an initial meeting to discuss working together.
“… the spiritual is as basic as the material part in man.”
