Hi, my name is Jeremy Young and I’m a UKCP registered psychosynthesis psychotherapist.
As a psychosynthesis psychotherapist, I offer a space where you can explore aspects of yourself that may feel out of alignment with a deeper sense of who you are and how you imagine you would like to be within the world.
You may be suffering distress of current times, anxiety, depression, low self-esteem. Within this space we can explore these symptoms at depth, but within psychosynthesis these symptoms alert us to something deeper: an inner conflict and the emergence of our authentic sense of self that wishes to be expressed and come to the forefront.
My approach allows for the body, feelings, mind and spirit to be included, meaning the whole being is considered. Each person I work with is an individual and their experience and dilemmas are valued as such.
You may have a feeling of a loss of direction or purpose; my approach also allows for self-discovery. It provides a doorway to a truer sense of who we are, where values, meaning and purpose may be explored. I encourage clients to develop a sense of curiosity to understand themselves to a profounder level. By doing so, this allows a greater connection with oneself and supports more meaningful relationships with others.
As well as seeing clients face-to-face, I also offer online therapy.
Psychosynthesis offers a holistic approach to living and explores how we wish to express ourselves in the world. It works with the mind, feelings, body and spirit and holds the context that within each of us is the potential for our deepest sense of identity and purpose to emerge.
Roberto Assagioli, a contemporary of Freud and Jung, developed psychosynthesis psychology. Assagioli believed that while our childhood experience affects our present living, we also have within us the vast human potential for healing and change. When we repress this higher potential for wholeness, it can lead to debilitating symptoms, loss of meaning and psychological dis-ease which may add to, and be equal to, the distress arising out of childhood trauma.
Within psychosynthesis counselling and psychotherapy we may explore our past in order to heal it and live more fully in the present, and we do this through the context of self-discovery.
Painful symptoms of anxiety and depression, and feelings of loss and grief and of being stuck may be a doorway through to a more authentic sense of who we are and who we may be. We may find our self in touch with an ever-increasing capacity to express ourselves through fulfilling relationships, our creativity and connection to our purpose in life.
Psychosynthesis honours the pain and confusion we experience in times of psychological difficulty and crisis, while drawing on our spiritual nature and holding the potential for wholeness and transformation.
