Geographical remit: 


The Psychosynthesis Trust helps people become more of who they are. More access to love and will, more empathy, connection and power to act. 

The Trust trains people to be counsellors and psychotherapists and offers personal development courses. 

Accredited by BACP and UKCP, we offer short courses, a Foundation Certificate, Postgraduate Diploma and an MA.

The longest established psychosynthesis centre in the UK, the Trust was founded in 1965 by ‘the father of psychosynthesis’, Roberto Assagioli, together with Sir George Trevelyan, Dr Martin Israel and Geoffrey Leytham. Lady Diana Whitmore led the Trust from 1980 and is now the President. 

The Trust supports people to be their fullest selves, and to take responsibility for who they are and what they do. By building self-awareness and connection to love and will, we believe people can create a kinder, more compassionate and connected world. This way we can collectively work with the challenges of our evolving future, putting love into action for the good of the whole.


The Psychosynthesis Trust trains counsellors and psychotherapists and offers personal development courses to people exploring their psychospiritual development.

At the Psychosynthesis Trust we offer a counselling and psychotherapy service, as well as a low cost clinic for those on lower incomes. The counselling and psychotherapy service consists of professional and experienced therapists who have all qualified through our training programme.

The low cost clinic offers sessions with a trainee counsellor in their 2nd or 3rd year of training at the Trust.
