Counselling services at Integral Health
Counselling provides you with the opportunity to talk through any problems or concerns, gives you the chance to explore what might be causing you difficulties and to consider ways that you might be able to make changes for the better. Counselling gives you the space for the exploration of your feelings and thoughts about yourself, and about how you are in relationships with others.
You may find that one or two sessions are sufficient or you might need support over a longer period. You are always in charge and your counsellor will enable you to work at your own pace, respecting your right to confidentiality throughout your work together. This offers you the opportunity for change in a supportive manner.
Counselling is not about telling you what to do or offering advice; instead, it is about helping you to gain insight into your feelings and behaviours and to make changes if you so decide. Counselling is about supporting you with your emotional needs whatever they may be, so that you can find a happier and healthier way of living.
Each person offering counselling and psychotherapy has their own unique approach and finding a person who's approach fits with what you are aiming to work with is a significant key to the benefits you gain.

What is Psychosynthesis?
Psychosynthesis has its roots in psychoanalysis. Before founding psychosynthesis, Dr Roberto Assagioli (1888-1974) was a member of the Freud Society in Zurich in 1910 and together with various other pioneers of the psychoanalytic movement was among the first to bring psychoanalysis to Italy. A contemporary and student of Freud, Assagioli was more aligned with Jung's approach to psychology. Psychosynthesis is part of a wider movement of psychospiritual development, exploration and enquiry. It's sometimes called a transpersonal approach because it integrates the spiritual aspect of human experience. Working in a psychospiritual way means meeting and including our challenges, pain and shadow, as well as our light and joy. It means including the full range of human experience and working with the present moment. Psychosynthesis is a liberating discipline, a map to help navigate human experience, and a toolbox for life. The Psychosynthesis approach affirms the reality of spiritual experience as an integral part of human experience. Psychosynthesis acknowledges our individual uniqueness and our connection to the whole. Where suffering can be caused by a loss of contact with who we really are, the psychosynthesis approach seeks to restore and renew this contact.
