WHAT IS HOLISTIC COUNSELLING?

Holistic counseling is an approach which recognises the whole client in the counseling experience -   body, mind, emotions, spirit. We are complex beings and our healing will be much more thorough, deep and lasting when all aspects of us are acknowledged.

 


 Most of the time we have the necessary skills and internal resources to be able to deal with the issues and challenges life presents. However, there can be times when life throws us curve balls in the shape of unexpected, traumatic or particularly challenging events or there can just be stressful phases in our journey. This is when we may need some extra support to manage how we’re feeling and find our way through the situation. Talking to a holistic counsellor in a safe and non judgmental environment can provide this. Professional counselling can be preferable to talking to friends or family as a good counselor will provide you with a confidential, impartial, supportive space which will allow you to see your situation from another perspective, unravel how you feel and find clarity in how to respond, all without feeling influenced by or responsible for what’s going on for the other person, as can be the case when turning to friends or family.
