Psychosynthesis is an integrative psychology with a psychospiritual orientation. It was founded by Dr Roberto Assagioli as a psychology that seeks to address the heights, as well as the depths of human existence. It approaches counselling not only as a way of managing challenges but also as a means of awakening to our life potential.
I work with a full range of client issues from those that occur around crisis to those that represent an awakening, particularly since these events are frequently interrelated. A personal crisis may signal that someone is “standing on the threshold” between a habitual way of being, and a new way forward.
Issues commonly faced include:
- challenges with relationships
- difficulty in changing old patterns of behaviour
- experiences of separation, loss and grief
- dissatisfaction with the experience of work
- sense of something missing
- search for self-direction and meaning
- the desire for greater creative expression and fulfilment
- crisis of identity caused by spiritual/religious experiences
- difficulty expressing one’s vision
These issues are often experienced through symptoms – such as feelings of inadequacy, being trapped, powerlessness, doubt, anger, depression, anxiety and a sense of life having no meaning.
Sessions are usually 1 hour and are held at Te Ora, 69 Aranui Road, Mapua, Nelson. The fee is $80. Appointments can be made by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
