The Institute of Psychosynthesis was founded In 1973 to develop the principles and practice of Psychosynthesis in the UK. Psychosynthesis has been described as a psychology of the Self, in that the realms of human experience also include matters of soul and spirit, alongside physical and emotional experiences and thoughts and mental processes.
The Institute went on to create the first professional psychosynthesis training programme in Europe in 1975 and since then has developed in-depth programmes in psychosynthesis counselling, psychotherapy, coaching as well as the application of psychosynthesis to other fields of service. It also has an active Research and Publishing section.
Over the years the Institute has developed a method of facilitated learning that integrates the excitement and stimulation of direct experience with the focus depth and direction that comes from a thorough understanding of ideas. The training environment is not only for the training of the professional, but also, and of utmost importance, for the training of the individual.
These validated programmes were developed and are delivered and assessed by The Institute of Psychosynthesis, awarded by and quality assured by Middlesex University.
