WHAT DOES HOLISTIC COUNSELLING MEAN?
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN HOLISTIC COUNSELLING AND REGULAR COUNSELLING?
Holistic Counsellors have studied different therapeutic modalities and use different therapies and techniques. The Holistic Counsellor is trained to adjust their approach to fit the clients needs.
Psychotherapy and mindfulness are a couple of the modalities used by counsellors practising Holistically. The term which joins all Holistic Counsellors is Wellness.
WHAT IS INVOLVED IN A TYPICAL HOLISTIC COUNSELLING SESSION?
Holistic derives from the word “holos” meaning “whole”. The Holistic Counsellor enters into a partnership with a client and together they explore the interconnectedness of the individual mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually. Disease and disorders are part of a greater whole.
Looking beyond the symptom the Holistic Practitioner looks deeper and tries to find the cause found as depletions within this whole. Through the facilitating of personal connectivity, these depletions are replenished and self healing is achieved through personal discovery an inner wisdom.
HOW LONG WILL I BE IN THERAPY FOR?
This depends on the reasons for entering into therapy. It is important to remember wellness is a way of life. Clients do not need sickness to work on improved wellness. Facilitated by myself, you decide what you are wanting to focus on and when you feel shift an improved quality of life is experienced.
