Psychotherapy
 

About

Hello, my name is Claudia, I am a Transpersonal Psychotherapeutic Counselor based in Bounds Green, London.

 

My approach is warm, authentic and relationship-led. I am most interested in the connections we make with one another and how good connections can lead to a healthier, happier life.

 

I am currently under supervision at the Institute of Psychosynthesis in London, where I have completed my Counselling Diploma, my PGDip in Psychosynethesis (Psych) and have been awarded an MA in Psychosynthesis Psychology. The course is validated by Middlesex University and accredited by UKCP (UK Council of Psychotherapy) where, as a member, I abide by their ethical framework.

 

You could say I've been training for this role all my adult life, learning about myself and other people. I previously worked in the Fashion Industry and as a University lecturer.

Psychosynthesis

Psychosynthesis was founded by Roberto Assagioli (1888 – 1974). Being a colleague of both Freud and Jung, Assagioli explained: “In one of his letters Freud said, I am interested only in the basement of the human being”. Psychosynthesis is interested in the whole building. We try to build an elevator, which will allow a person access to every level of his personality. After all, a building with only a basement is very limited. We want to open up the terrace where you can sunbathe or look at the stars.”

Psychosynthesis incorporates and expands on traditional therapies such as psychoanalysis and psychodynamics. Inspired by spiritual traditions and philosophies from the east and west, it is an approach that is able to sink to the depths to heal deep trauma, whilst being equally capable of reaching our, too often ignored, higher capacities that inspire and guide. It is this breadth of spectrum that sets psychosynthesis apart and supports whole being health.

Psychosynthesis shows us who and what we truly are. As light falling upon a bud can cause it to unfurl, the work done in a psychosynthetic context is capable of bringing remarkable and transformative change.
