As an inclusive approach to human growth, Psychosynthesis dates from 1911 and the early work of Roberto Assagioli, an Italian Psychiatrist. Though one of the pioneers of psychoanalysis in Italy, Assagioli gave importance to the depths of personal past and childhood traumas as well as the “higher” aspects of the human personality, and recognised a need for a more inclusive concept of humanity.
Psychosynthesis holds the view that every difficulty we face or crises we experience is an opportunity for positive change and growth. It deals with the whole person: body, mind, feelings and spirit, and takes into consideration all human needs, from the basic psychological needs for security, love, relationships, respect and recognition, to the needs for meaning, higher values and self-actualisation.
In my work, along with dialogue, I use many simple and effective psychosynthesis techniques such as guided imagery, visualisation, inner dialogue, drawing and journal keeping.
