Created on the requests of people who want to know what Junifyh represents and what they can expect from it. That is why I sum up briefly the philosophy, which is the main root of my work. The work that I call Transformational Psychology – Junifyh.
In the first part I write briefly about the path of learning. This path forms the roots from which the theory grows, which is described below on the basis of the following questions:
What is this method based on?
How does it work?
What are the implications?
The answers to these questions reveal to a person whether this is the right thing he is looking for. There must be a philosophy behind each method. So let’s get closer to the theory or philosophy on which I am based. I intentionally write based on, because it is not only about the method, but mainly about who uses the tool and how he is able to use it.
As the classic says, “A good method in the hands of a bad person cannot bring anything good.”
The road to the Not method
My first steps led to the study of personal development in England. I studied Life Coaching at Oxford College. Here I learned the basics of working with a person as a whole entity and looking for answers within oneself.
Then I graduated the School of Coaching from the Neuroleadership Institute, which is based on knowledge of neuroscience (brain science). It is a globally recognized school, represented by David Rock as one of the most modern and most effective methods in personal development and in achieving goals.
I am very happy for these basics, however, I soon realized that they only hold me in a rational structure. As for my real everyday life, I was in conflict with the attitude of unambiguity. That did not allow me to get into the deeper layers of the human psyche.
I was looking for a master from whom I could learn further, and so my teacher became Pjér la Šé’z, a Czech “enlightened” psychotherapist, whose teaching is based on Carl Gustav Jung, a 20th century psychologist.
I assume that life is a big secret, just like the man himself.
Matter (brain, hormones and instincts) are as unknown to us as the spirit, the soul or the modern psyche. This view does not deny the close connection of the mental with the physiology of the brain, glands and body in general.
This leads to the first point, that I called: wholeness.
It follows from the above that physiology constantly communicates with the human psyche. This basic view allows for a comprehensive approach, as we are structured beings. Therefore, it allows the correct identification of the problem and the necessary work. We mainly know about the ego, but we also have very deep layers and unfortunately, or thank God, the dark sides, which we often do not want to admit.
The same is true of achieving or improving in any particular area. Reducing to one area or activity can be very beneficial and has its justification until a limit is reached that cannot be crossed. Complexity is not very visible in practice, as this view takes into account incredibly many factors with which it must be able to work.
Yet only this view of the context of everything with everything is a reflection of the true reality. In practice, this means that our areas of life are very interconnected and it is clear that our work is influenced by our spouse, health, etc., and vice versa.
If we go deeper into the human psyche, then satisfaction, fulfillment and happiness cannot be achieved in the ego. Likewise, just focusing on the spiritual life does not make us any money.
One cannot be completely whole and healthy, if he excludes something from the consciousness or closes himself off against something. Sayings like, “I would never do that!” are the surest way to be in constant conflict with those around you and therefore with yourself.
Only listening to all aspects of our lives can lead to harmony, which is the goal of all spiritual teachings.
Dynamic, lively structure
A professionally specialized doctor, coach or therapist are undoubtedly wonderful helpers in their respective specialization, but they do not dare to go beyond it. Almost always, these professionals take responsibility for us and come up with a solution for the given situation. Then it results in many negative influences. It mainly makes us beings who don’t know what to do and then we wait for someone else to guide us. And in addition, we expect to be praised for this attitude.
Methods are great tools in certain situations, however, if we stick to just one of them, we will not avoid reduction and specification. As the main starting point, I find much more interesting and effective an open dialogue between a competent person and a client. Dialogue with an individual intention, which is brought by the client himself.
An open, conscious and partnership approach, which is the key to a realistic responsibility of a person (client) to a given situation that a person is facing. This allows the client to hear himself. He learns from the greatest authority that is in each of us, and thus he learns from a given life challenge what he has and ends the process with a more conscious approach to life.
This further implies the essential point. The person is a tool in himself. He himself must decide and persevere to reach his goal. In any case, it is important to mention that this open dialogue, enriched with a certain method, as a tool at the right time, is very effective.
The above, when we multiply it by the time of work in a certain time horizon, we get the process as a result. It takes time and work to achieve any change or goal. These elements are interdependent. The length of the process depends on the complexity of the goal and requires action steps that take place throughout the length of the process.
Finally, it is important to underline what is the main point of this article. It is always about the client first, it is about his approach, attitudes, beliefs, etc. That means it is about his individual world, which is viewed through communication and work with a competent person for positive change. Together they form a bridge to the desired.
