What is Psychosynthesis Coaching?

What is Psychosynthesis Coaching?

Psychosynthesis is an integrative and holistic psychology founded by the Italian psychiatrist Doctor Roberto Assagioli, a contemporary of Sigmund Freud and Carl Gustav Jung which builds upon the foundations of humanistic and developmental psychologies and is highly relevant to coaching today.

Psychosynthesis is a psychology of human development, illuminating the different phases of how the self develops, and guiding the synthesis of our disparate parts, with the goal of becoming more whole as human beings. This is very important for coaching, which is about helping healthy and functional people actualise their potential and achieve their goals. 

Psychosynthesis is also a living and evolving psychology for today. Psychosynthesis Coaching is engaged in an ongoing process that (i) responds to the emerging needs of leaders, organisation and society, and (ii) integrates and absorbs the latest learning in psychology and related fields, especially neuroscience and neuropsychology, but also developmental psychology and integral philosophy. 


Psychosynthesis coaching provides a framework for dialogue with the client’s inner (psychological) dimension of purpose, values, sense of self and to relate these to the outer realm of behaviour. In doing so, the capacity to see the whole system, be present and more relational, to create and make choices in the moment and to strengthen resolve is developed in a way that is more authentic and aligned with the ‘self’.
