Psychosynthesis therapy is an integrative and holistic approach to psychology and psychotherapy that emphasizes the development of the whole person — the physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual aspects.



Psychosynthesis is a psychological approach that was developed by Italian psychiatrist Roberto Assagioli in the early 20th century. He initially trained in psychoanalysis but later developed his own approach, which he called Psychosynthesis. Assagioli's vision was to create a more holistic and integrative form of psychology that included the spiritual dimension. Psychosynthesis gained popularity in the 1960s and 1970s, particularly in the United States and other parts of Europe. The approach resonated with individuals seeking a more inclusive and spiritually oriented form of psychology. During this time, the first Psychosynthesis training centers outside of Italy were established. After Assagioli's death in 1974, various practitioners continued to develop and refine Psychosynthesis. The approach has evolved, integrating insights from other psychological perspectives and adapting to the changing cultural and social contexts.
