HOLISTIC COUNSELLING
Holistic Counselling is a highly personalised approach that helps you, help yourself when you feel the need for support or assistance. The difference between Counselling and Holistic Counselling: Rather than treating just the symptoms, a holistic counsellor looks deeper and tries to uncover underlying causes.

HOW I WORK
I use the perspective that a client is a dynamic psychological-spiritual-physical-social living system. I honour the diversity of the human being and use an integrated approach within sessions. I will work with a variety of applicable modalities, coming alongside the client with compassion, non-judgment and open-mindedness. Together we work towards the client’s improved sense of well-being in work, personal or relational settings.

WHAT IS EMI?
EMI (Eye Movement Integration Therapy) is a short term therapeutic intervention. Clients may experience a shift within two to three sessions. Seen as a neuro-therapeutic modality, combined with psychotherapy, it is a therapeutic tool to help the brain change traumatic memory networks and heal itself. Research has shown that our eye movements are connected to our memory networks. Through guided eye movements, we can also access these memory networks and reprocess them. Through the eyes, we thus have a perfect entrance to the brain and old trauma memory networks.
