Key concepts in psychosynthesis
Psychosynthesis is based on several key assumptions: All people have incredible potential, most of which are never realized.
1) Humans have an innate tendency to synthesize or integrate all aspects of who they are, in order to reach their full potential.
2) Psychosynthesis strives to work in harmony with this natural tendency in order to help individuals attain a high level of self-actualization and self-realization – i.e. move towards their highest potential.
3) The challenges we face in life are opportunities for increased self-awareness, personal growth, and transformation. We always have a choice in terms of how we respond to life‘s challenges.
4) The role of the therapist isn‘t to give advice or offer interpretation; rather, it‘s to support and guide clients as they explore and discover their own solutions to whatever problems they‘re facing.
