MY APPROACH - PSYCHOSYNTHESIS
What is Psychosynthesis?
This approach values the different insights and embraces some of the tools of various psychological models such as Gestalt, Psychodynamic, CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy) & Humanistic psychologies or philosophies like Person-Centred Therapy.
Holistic & Humanistic, Psychosynthesis allows a deep and conscious exploration and re-appropriation of who you truly are, - your core self beyond your Ego and the various facets of your identity. Psychosynthesis helps you reconcile with your personality and your genetic, genealogical & personal history, while teaching you that you are more than them. You are a unique self, capable of awareness, love & will, an individual Being yearning for meaning & purpose.
Also Transpersonal by nature, Psychosynthesis sees you as a Self – most commonly called a Soul -, connected to your true self and holding your creative potential.
“At the transpersonal level we find many important aspects of being human; acts of altruism, creative and artistic inspiration, the perception of beauty, intuition, curiosity about the universe and our place in it, and a sense of the universality of life.”; - Diana Whitmore
