Course overview

Psychosynthesis, the system of personal and spiritual growth developed by Dr Roberto Assagioli, is often taught distinctly separate from other approaches and forms of therapy. This course explains psychosynthesis concepts and philosophy in relation to other forms of personal growth and presents a range of exercises that, as well as constituting a path of psychosynthesis development, can be drawn upon by counsellors, therapists and coaches from different orientations. Many exercises that were developed within psychosynthesis have been adopted by other disciplines, and you might well find that some of them are familiar to you even if you have never trained in psychosynthesis. Psychosynthesis practitioners have in turn made use of methods from other approaches. This course, as well as being a deep study in its own right, can provide a lasting resource and a new set of tools for all workers in the field of humanistic or transpersonal growth. For the therapist with knowledge of and training in multiple techniques, psychosynthesis can provide a framework for operating in an integrated way.

There are no particular educational entry qualifications for this course but we expect a good standard of written English and a genuine interest in personal and spiritual growth.


Successful graduates will receive the Certificate in Applied Practical Psychosynthesis awarded by UK College of Holistic Training which is a private UK qualification. The course is accredited by ACCPH
