Psychosynthesis was one of the first western psychologies to include both the psychological and spiritual dimensions of the person. Psychosynthesis attempts to bring together our search for wholeness and our need to work on past or current issues. It acknowledges that deep within us is an innate drive to become fully who we are meant to be. The experience of the will as a source of all choices and decisions that we make is central to psychosynthesis.
Psychosynthesis, as a psycho-spiritual psychology, considers difficulties in life not purely as problems that need to be solved. These are stirrings at the level of our soul calling us to be the person who we are meant to be. Psychosynthesis works with clients to enable them to live their lives to the fullest. This includes understanding both how our past can limit us and how to connect to and fulfil our potential.
Recognising that each individual is unique, psychosynthesis offers a creative way of working that includes reflection and meditation.
