What is Psychosynthesis counselling?
Psychosynthesis is a holistic therapeutic model that is designed to include all aspects of the individual combining psychological and spiritual concerns in a creative approach to personal growth.
It relates to the human potential hidden within trauma and so acknowledges and works with pain and suffering while supporting the individual's inherent call for growth, health and well-being.
Psychosynthesis therefore stresses that each person's inherent positive qualities can be strenghtened and used to help cope with life's challenges.
My counselling approach:
In my work, I use both my psychological and spiritual understanding and experience to perceive the individual in an intuitive way rather than make definitive interpretations.
I see my work as a counsellor to provide a listening space for you to explore your inner and/or outer world concerns whereby I will respond empathically or offer suggestions based on my intuition (see above) and sometimes I might respectfully challenge your perceptions of your given situation as a way of opening up new horizons.
Such space also offers an opportunity to explore:
To assist your self-exploration, I might at times invite particular techniques
which will aim to help you have an overview of your current conflict and what may be asked of you.
Such techniques can help you harness your potential for healing and self-transformation as well as help access your inner wisdom.
Note, however, that they are chosen to suit the client's personality or immediate needs and it would be irresponsible to assume that they alone could heal the client. Indeed, the process and success of therapeutic counselling is greatly influenced by the relationship between the client and the counsellor, which remains the most healing contingent. This relationship is there to provide a safe container for the client to unload powerful feelings and share/explore thoughts and insights.
