She is co-chair of the Trustee Board of the Psychosynthesis and Education Trust and is one of the UK's leading trainers of counselling and psychotherapy.

Diana has been a member of the trustee board of the Findhorn Foundation for the past sixteen years. Diana is also the author of Psychosynthesis in Education: A Guide to the Joy of Learning. Each move, each effort in counselling, is directed towards that moment: As tensions and suspicions fade away, your client sees his or her personality and life from a new perspective.
There is a feeling of lightness. There is, perhaps, gratitude. Perhaps you, the counsellor, have fought a hundred battles, met countless resistances. It was hard and tiring. But all that is now past.
A fresh understanding has dawned, which is just what both counsellor and client were aiming for. What is insight, and how is it produced? Although many have formulated hypotheses, no one truly knows.
To facilitate understanding and transformation is less a matter of technical knowledge than one of instinct and experience.
As Diana Whitmore writes, " Psychosynthesis maintains that the transpersonal is evolutionary in the sense of moving us forward, being our next step in manifesting our potential", so relevant to coaching which looks to the future and emerging potential.

You could compare it with skiing: The field of counselling is just like that. Some people, improvising themselves as counsellors, try to convert their clients to their own views, or unconsciously attribute to them their own problems.
They are the Sunday skiers of the helping professions. Others are like champion skiers: They evoke the best resources in their clients, and assist them in becoming what they choose to be.
Diana Whitmore definitely belongs to this second category. For many years I have worked with her in the training of psychosynthesis professionals.
And many, many times I have seen her extend her intuition while [Page x]working with participants. And I have seen her accompany many of them into a freedom beyond their blocks. Don't expect to learn her art by reading this book. That cannot be communicated. But you may expect the next best thing: Psychosynthesis counselling is innovative.
It is an energetic, pragmatic approach aimed at producing results easily and quickly. It emphasizes the will and the human capacity to choose; it makes ample use of imagery; it acknowledges the presence of a transpersonal realm in all human beings — the realm of inspiration, awe and joy; it encourages clients to work on their own using a variety of specific techniques.
All good counselling has stringent requirements. A good counsellor has to be clear, feel at ease with the inner world, meet serenely with pain and rage, deal with the unexpected effectively and, above all, be open and receptive to others. And yet, beyond all the dilemmas and demands, one finds a great beauty in counselling — in all counselling.
Helping people to discover themselves, make decisions and change their attitude is a creative endeavour. Again and again, you deal with life's most profound questions: Why am I here?
How can I deal with pain and solitude? What course shall I give to my existence? Psychosynthesis Counselling in Action is a powerful contribution to meeting the challenges of counselling and appreciating its beauty.
Assagioli Florence Preface [Page xi] Although the remit of the Counselling in Action series is to examine counselling from a particular modality, beginning—middle—end, with a focus on how the theory unfolds in practice, I am pleased to note that many different modalities of counselling practice today are increasingly being applied in new arenas.
Counselling's approach to human suffering and its emphasis on well-being is not limited to the consulting room. How wonderful that the principles and methods of psychosynthesis can be made available to those who perhaps would never seek counselling.This item is not reservable because: There are no reservable copies for this title.
