The article is focused on education in counselling and psychotherapy with an accent to scenic symbolic work. The focus of this work with a client can be found in Pesso Boyden System Psychomotor. Pesso Boyden System Psychomotor (henceforth PBSP) is one of the therapeutic systems which address the “I” of an individual in a distinctive way. Also, it could be classified as a holistic approach. PBSP defines five basic needs – place, nurturance, support, protection and limits. One of its basic principles is the principle of the shape and the counter shape. Every emotion/action of the client is a “shape” and it requires an adequate response from outside – an adequate “counter shape”. The satisfaction of a need happens in five steps – energy, action, interaction and meaning. According to PBSP, every individual carries an inborn image of what s/he needs. In the real world, our needs are not satisfied in the ideal way, the degree of frustration and the personality of the individual are important.
