Diploma in Psychosynthesis Psychotherapeutic Counselling
Diploma in Psychosynthesis Psychotherapy
The advanced clinical training consists of Modules 3 and 4 and is where students continue with their training in Psychotherapeutic Counselling and Psychotherapy.
This course delivers the foundations of psychosynthesis psychotherapeutic counselling and psychotherapy beginning with its central model – the Triphasic Model – which describes the dynamics between the prepersonal, the personal and the transpersonal. It teaches through experience the processes of object relations, transference and countertransference as clinical skills vital for those in the profession. Alongside this there is the exploration of energy systems using the Chakra model as an embodied and energetic diagnostic tool as well as the creative process and meditation skills.
The study of psychosynthesis psychotherapy involves plumbing the depths of the psyche as well as the heights, ranging from the prepersonal to the transpersonal – hence a psychospiritual psychotherapy. The suffering of the soul from the impact of traumatic wounding is not considered as pathological but a wounding potentially leading to the numinous. Similarly students are trained in depth in how to work with their clients through spiritual emergence and spiritual emergency as they seek to lead more spiritual and meaningful lives. In this context students will consider the differences between the need for psychiatric intervention and the deepest journey of the soul in extremis as it ‘suffers meaning’.
