Psychosynthesis

Psychosynthesis is an approach to human development. It is both a theory and a practice where the focus is to achieve a synthesis, of the various parts of an individual's personality into a more cohesive self. That person can then function in a way that is more life-affirming and authentic. Private sessions in English, by a trained counsellor in the Vaud and Geneva areas - Nyon. 

Psychosynthesis


Psychosynthesis is a comprehensive and holistic approach to psychological health and well-being. Its inclusive framework of principles and techniques lie at the cutting edge of thought and practice in the field of psychotherapy. 

A psychosynthesis approach adjusts to every person’s individual needs and situation. Rather than being passive, it is active and both parties are engaged in the process. The focus is to achieve a synthesis, a coming together, of the various parts of an individual's personality and experience into a more cohesive self. That person can then function in a way that is more life-affirming, authentic and satisfying.

 

In 1927, Robert Assagioli (a colleague and counterpart of Freud and Jung) criticised Freud and Psychoanalysis and founded Psychosynthesis. He aimed to bring something more to the healing professions than Psychoanalysis could. He proposed that the purpose of psychological healing was to contact a deeper centre of identity (the Self) to nurture its unfoldment, while removing obstacles to its actualisation. He held a wide and deeply compassionate view of the human condition and devised numerous creative ways with which to discover an individual’s unique reality and address their needs.

A Psychosynthesis Counsellor...

...Recognises

the need for meaning and purpose as being fundamental to well-being

...Acknowledges

that the mind, body, emotions and spirit are deeply interrelated

...Views

a human being as both an individual with unique qualities and as intimately interconnected with others and the environment

...Notices

that people repress not only the unacceptable aspects of themselves but also their higher impulses such as intuition, altruism, creative inspiration, love and joy

...Addresses

powerful experiences and the defence mechanisms around them which can hinder our self connection and development

...Holds

that individual will is necessary before change and transformation can take place

...Works

to integrate different and often opposing parts of our experience, in order to create more self connection and a capacity to live vibrantly

...Dares

to emphasise the Self, as the source of psychological health

...Sees

life as a journey of development and differentiation, where problems are opportunities, that assist its unfoldment

...Creates

a compassionate and an optimistic vision of human nature, despite the dominance of the pathologically orientated psychology

 

 

 

Perhaps the pain of the traumas we have lived through also emphasizes the deeper pain of having given up the freedom, order and beauty we once had – of having lost something most precious, of not being in touch with our Self.
