What is Psychosynthesis?


Psychosynthesis is a creative form of counselling as well as a tool for self-transformation. It addresses psychological healing and spiritual development.

Psychosynthesis has often been described as the psychology of hope and a psychology of will.

Psychosynthesis was founded by the Italian psychiatrist Roberto Assagioli in the early part of the twentieth century. A contemporary of both Freud and Jung, he went on to expand their analytic concepts and methods to formulate Psychosynthesis.

Psychosynthesis addresses not only issues of childhood wounding and healing but also enables the revelation of a person’s untapped potential. Assagioli believed that every person has a part that is seeking to grow towards wholeness. However, sometimes this growth can be blocked by forgotten childhood experiences where we developed unhelpful or destructive patterns of behaviour or beliefs. During the process of therapy, we aim to uncover a deeper understanding of ourselves; to allow the individual to open to a clearer sense of purpose, meaning and direction, adding more balance in their life. This process can help uncover and recognise a deeper sense of strength, creativity and will.

It can benefit an individual in various ways, including

  • supports healing from early childhood trauma and woundings
  • promots strategies for healthy coping
  • provides tools for self development
  • encourages connection to value, meaning and purpose
  • strengthens self-confidence
  • helps develop self-esteem
  • provides insight for growth and transformation
  • inspires creativity and intuition
