What is Psychosynthesis Counselling?


Psychosynthesis counselling will explore and support you to harmonise various aspects of your personal self in order to grow and develop. It is a therapeutic approach that stems from psychoanalysis; however, it involves a more inclusive concept of humanity – one that integrates spiritual, as well psychological elements.

Similar to person-centred therapy, a key assumption in psychosynthesis is that we all have vast potential for personal growth. That is, an innate inclination to synthesise (blend) all aspects of our being to become our fullest self.  Psychosynthesis is a conscious attempt to cooperate with this natural process of personal development in order to foster awareness, self-healing, and a greater connection to the ever-changing nature of human life.

The framework of psychosynthesis can help a wide range of individuals to overcome life challenges. A psychosynthesis counsellor will strive to establish a specific relationship with you and will draw on a range of diverse techniques to guide them through the process of self-actualisation and self-realisation. This forms an important part of therapy as it will help you to discover a higher, spiritual level of consciousness that will facilitate positive changes and personal growth.


The Stages of Psychosynthesis Therapy


There are four primary stages to psychosynthesis. During these stages, the therapist will explore past challenges and look to the future.

Stage 1: Thorough knowledge of one’s personality

Stage 2: Control of the personalities various elements

Stage 3: Realisation of one’s true Self – the discovery or creation of a unifying centre

Stage 4: Psychosynthesis: the formation or reconstruction of the personality around the new centre

Psychosynthesis has been used to treat a range of different disorders including anxiety, depression, low self-esteem and trauma. Here at Counselling Psychology Online, we are trained counsellors in Psychosynthesis with many years experience.
