The Origins of Psychosynthesis

Psychosynthesis is a humanistic and integrative psychological approach. It is based on the work of Roberto Assagioli, an Italian Psychoanalyst who had studied with Freud and been a colleague of Jung. He brought a new perspective to the field of psychology believing that, whilst our childhood experience affects our present living, we also have within us the vast human potential for healing and change. In psychosynthesis counselling we work in the context of self discovery ; we may explore the past in order to heal it and live more fully in the present . Psychosynthesis holds that our painful symptoms such as anxiety and depression or feelings of grief and loss, may be a doorway through to a more authentic sense of who we are and who we may be. Psychosynthesis honours the pain and confusion we experience in times of psychological difficulty and crisis, while drawing on our spiritual nature and holding the potential for wholeness and transformation.
