PSYCHOSYNTHESIS COUNSELLING - A New Vision for your life
What is Psychosynthesis counselling?
Psychosynthesis is a psychospiritual therapeutic psychology developed by Dr. Roberto Assagioli last century. This often coined, “Psychology with a Soul”, is holistic in nature in that it includes mind, heart, body and spirit. It is therefore perfectly and adequately designed to work and unlock most psychological and spiritual concerns an individual brings to the therapy room - Counselling or Coaching.
It is especially concerned with recovering the human potential hidden within trauma. In other words, it acknowledges and works with pain and suffering while supporting the individual's inherent call for growth, health and well-being.
Psychosynthesis therefore stresses that each person's inherent positive qualities can be strenghtened and used to help cope with life's challenges.
My counselling approach:
In my work, I use both my psychological and spiritual understanding as well as my extensive experience to perceive the individual in an intuitive way rather than make definitive interpretations.
I see my work as a counsellor to provide an empathic listening space whereby my clients can safely explore their inner landscape and their life’s concerns alongside my support and guidance. This often thus leads to an opening of new horizons for my clients, a “new vision” for their life ahead.
Such space also offers an opportunity to explore:
To assist this unique self-exploration, I will also invite different exercises that are rooted in psychospiritual western psychologies and eastern philosophies. They simply greatly help my clients have a deeper aerial view of the current conflict they are experiencing.
These exercises cab be visualisations, gestalt role-play, art-therapy, reflective written work, meditations and conscious breathing exercises. They all help harness one’s potential for healing and self-transformation as well as help access one’s essential inner wisdom.
Note, however, that they are chosen to suit the client's personality or immediate needs and it would be irresponsible to assume that they alone could heal the client. Indeed, the process and success of therapeutic counselling is greatly influenced by the relationship between the client and the counsellor, which remains the most healing contingent. Henceforth, the therapeutic relationship is there to provide a safe container for the client to unload powerful feelings and share/explore thoughts and insights.
