Counselling and Psychotherapy with a Psychosynthesis Twist
Psychosynthesis Counselling and Psychotherapy are widely acknowledged, cohered and effective frameworks of transpersonal psychology integrating the best of western psychology and eastern spiritual disciplines. This holistic approach and perspective make 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 Counselling 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 towards self- actualisation.
How is Psychosynthesis different to other Counselling and Psychotherapy approaches?
Unlike some other methods and approaches that only focus on the narrative and storytelling or only on “parts” of our human experience such as thinking processes, techniques or temporary solutions, Psychosynthesis Counselling and Psychotherapy are more inclusive and all-encompassing as this approach integrates a sensorimotor, psychodynamic, humanistic and transpersonal perspectives in a cohered framework that facilitate transformation from the inside out.
Psychosynthesis Counselling and Psychotherapy as a framework addresses the often unconscious long patterns and beliefs underlying your emotional suffering, helps you understand more clearly the choices that may be hidden but available to you, allows you to explore and discover that which has deeper meaning for you right now so that you can move toward greater psychological balance and integration and bring about lasting changes. Over time you will become more self- aware, you will begin to find new answers and ways of meeting life daily challenges in a more grounded, joyful and wholesome way regardless of your circumstances and you will feel more connected and empowered to take your life in the direction you choose. I will be honoured to witness your journey.
Other Counselling and Psychotherapy approaches I use
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 lifestyle and yet we sometimes sense at a very deep level that something missing.
