Psychosynthesis deals with the psychological elements and spiritual aspect of an individual, and how these two affect their positive development and growth. This theory is based on psychoanalysis which gave importance to the unconscious, however, Roberto Assagioli, an Italian Psychologist who developed psychosynthesis, wanted to emphasize that the rational and conscious mind of an individual is just as important as the unconscious – thus maintaining the balance between the two aspects.

Therapists who utilize psychosynthesis aim to guide individuals realize their full potential, thus achieving self-actualization. They also aim to promote self-awareness, self-healing and improve adaptation skills of individuals to the ever-changing world. This would then help individuals successfully overcome challenges life would throw at them.

Self-awareness is also a fundamental element in the behavioral modalities of therapy including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Schema Therapy.
