Psychosynthesis is a widely acknowledged cohered and effective framework of transpersonal psychology that integrates the best of western psychology and eastern spiritual disciplines. Its holistic approach and perspective makes possible to effectively address the spectrum of peoples’ experience and to also explore emotional, social, psychological, sexual, biological, cultural and spiritual elements and influences on our health and well-being.
As a modality, Psychosynthesis also facilitates psychological balance and spiritual growth by means of exploring what is preventing us from moving forward as well as what may be seeking to emerge at any stage in our lives. Its unifying principles can be successfully applied therapeutically towards the organic unfolding of uniqueness in each individual and also towards self- actualisation.
How is Psychosynthesis Counselling different to other Counselling and Psychotherapy approaches?
Unlike some other methods and approaches that only focus on the narrative and story telling or only on “parts” of our human experience such as thinking processes, techniques or temporary solutions, Psychosynthesis is more inclusive and all encompassing as it integrates a sensorimotor, psychodynamic, humanistic and transpersonal perspectives in a cohered framework that facilitate transformation from the inside out.
A Sensorimotor approach blends cognitive and emotional approaches, verbal dialogues and physical interventions. We use body as an entry point in conjunction with emotions, cognition and meaning making to directly address and process information organically instead of just focusing on the story or the event in itself.
A Psychodynamic perspective addresses the long patterns that have been laid down and the behaviours and beliefs that we have been conditioned with throughout childhood. These may be the source of conflict or suffering in our adulthood as we unconsciously repeat these in our current relationships despite they being outdated and limiting and therefore no longer serving us.
A humanistic perspective focuses on the here and now, what is happening in our lives, what is influencing us at the moment, socially, psychologically, spiritually, emotionally and connecting all these aspects back to childhood patterns.
A transpersonal perspective looks at the spiritual side in all of us. Spirituality is not about belonging or having any particular religion; it is about the intrinsic need in all human beings to find purpose and meaning in their life. Some of us have wonderful families, a good job, healthy children, a good life style and yet we sometimes sense at a very deep level that something missing.
Using diverse therapeutic methods and techniques I help clients to make sense of their life and make meaning by taking a closer look and resolve that which appears to be blocking or holding them back, free themselves from limiting ways of relating and behaving, change past conditioning, awaken their creative talents and intuition, develop a sense of personal power and freedom, find meaning and deepen their enjoyment in life as well as their capacity to love and be loved.
