“Healing is not the same as being cured. It is the development of new, more resilient attitude with which to face one’s life.” ~ C J Jung
I am Richard Lamb and welcome to my psychospiritual coaching and therapy practice. My mission is to support people in discovering purpose, meaning, and inner resiience through a range of spiritual and psychological services – Transpersonal Life Coaching in the tradition of Psychosynthesis, Spiritual Growth, Dream Work and, where appropriate, a combination of Psychotherapy with Hypnotherapy.
The founder of Psychosynthesis, Roberto Assagioli, recogised that “there is no certainty, only adventure.” Honoring this call to adventure, as our world has transformed so markedly over recent years, informs my goal to acknowledge and serve my clients’ need for resilience. Cultivating that spirit of adventure and playfullness in a world both full of uncertainty and potential lies at the heart of my practice.
Assagioli’s spiritually-oriented psychology Psychosynthesis, “a Psychology with Soul”, draws upon the richness of deep relaxation and centering through meditation, guided visualisation, mental imagery and symbolic art to access, identify, work with and transform the inner landscapes of our personal unconscious. Psychosynthesis, a dear friend and teacher once told me, is “Yoga for the Personality”. It is this path, this practice of Soul-Making, that I find deep inspiration from.
The quote of the great Carl Jung, who had a long-term professional and friendly relationship with Roberto Assagioli, illustrates the similarities in Jung’s approach to that of Assagioli’s, and it is that mark of respect and mutual interest in developing a relationship with the unconscious that I apply in my service to the people I work with.
It is in my experience that people have within themselves the inner resources to consciously recognise, accept, work with and through the landscapes of their unconscious, in honor of life’s joys, challenges and burdens. For this exploration, discovery and transformation to be held, I offer a safe, confidential and supportive environment in which you can express your worries and challenges, feelings and dreams for a life lived consciously, wholly and authentically.
Above all, the work I do is both gentle and effective yet firm and grounded. It is also about growing and moving into our unique, sovereign individuality, our centre. It is the hidden centre, the “inner Sun” of our authentic selves, the Divine Spark we are all born with, that I am in services to emerging, and it is this inner ligtt that rests at the centre of mystery traditions world-wide.
