Hello, I'm Claudia, a qualified transpersonal Psychotherapist based in Bounds Green, London. Specializing in individual and couples therapy, my approach is founded on warmth, authenticity, and a keen focus on interpersonal relationships. I utilize Terry Real's Relational Life Therapy (RLT) framework in my couples therapy practice, offering structured yet empathetic guidance to help you achieve a balanced, healthier relationship. I am particularly interested in the role that interpersonal connections play in overall well-being. A good relationship can serve as a cornerstone for a fulfilling, happier life, and I specialize in addressing challenges that hinder such connections, including codependency, attachment styles, and love addiction. In addition to my broad client base, I possess specific expertise in serving individuals from creative and academic backgrounds, such as those in the fields of fashion, music, media, and academia. If you're facing relational challenges or simply seeking to enhance the quality of your interpersonal relationships, I am here to provide expert, tailored support. Let's explore how we can build a better emotional future together.

Treatment Approach

  • Transpersonal
Approach Description: Psychosynthesis, at its heart, is a psychology of hope. Psychosynthesis is also a psychology of Will, one that invites you to explore and transform whatever of gets in the way of a life more fully lived. To create a life that expresses more fully who you truly are, one that fulfills your hopes and dreams and is anchored in whatever holds meaning and value for you and. Psychosynthesis is a transpersonal psychology developed by Dr Roberto Assagioli, a contemporary and colleague of both Freud and Jung. Psychosynthesis acknowledges that as are all unique and individual souls on a journey through life, that we are more than our problems and our perceived failures and that at the deepest levels of our selves we are wise beings seeking to express our potential into the world. When you feel need for change, when things seem to be falling apart, when your inner and outer lives are out of rhythm, there may be a calling to seek deeper meaning and a new way to live. When we follow and respond to this natural inclination toward healing and growth, we are invited into our own well-being and a deeper sense of belonging, in our own lives and in the world around us. Psychosynthesis embraces all aspects of human experience, from the physical to the spiritual. My approach beings together a trust in the wisdom of the psyche and a care for the soul. It is grounded in transpersonal integrative theory and informed by Steven Levine's approach to the body as well as Robert Moss' approach to dream work and the creative imagination.

Claudia Behnke Practice Description
I am a Psychotherapist accredited with the UKCP, holding a Masters in Psychosynthesis Psychology. Having spent two decades in the UK after relocating from Germany, I bring a unique blend of cross-cultural understanding to my practice. At the core of my approach is a warm, authentic, and relationship-centered philosophy. I strongly believe that the quality of our interpersonal connections can greatly influence our overall well-being, leading us towards a healthier, more fulfilled life. In addition to individual therapy, I extend my practice to couples, applying Terry Real's Relational Life Therapy (RLT) framework. This evidence-based model allows me to offer structured guidance aimed at navigating the complexities of romantic relationships, helping couples achieve balance and mutual respect. Therapy, when properly utilized, can equip you with the self-mastery and relief you seek, no matter the personal challenges you face. Informed by Psychosynthesis—a form of Transpersonal Psychology commonly described as 'soul work'—my sessions aim to integrate all facets of your being: emotional, physical, intellectual, and spiritual. This enables you to reconcile with your past, connect with your true self, and unlock your full potential. Psychosynthesis shows us who and what we truly are. As light falling upon a bud can cause it to unfurl, the work done in a psychosynthetic context is capable of bringing remarkable and transformative change. If you're considering therapy, I offer a complimentary 15-minute consultation to discuss how I can support you and to address any initial questions you may have. This session provides an opportunity to learn more about my therapeutic approach, as well as the therapeutic process in general, helping you determine if I'm the right fit for your needs. Please contact me to arrange a time that suits both of us for this consultation. I strive to respond to all enquiries within 24 hours.
