What is Holistic Counselling and Psychotherapy?


To see the world through a holistic perspective means that when you go to the doctors for a health problem you don’t end your exploration there. You gather information from all areas of your life, your emotions, what you eat, how much movement you have in your life, how stressful your job is and whether you like your job or not, how healthy your relationships are and how the environment you’re in everyday influences you on a spiritual and soulful level.


We are emotional creatures. Emotions are our compass in life and when we suppress them, cover them up or distract ourselves from them, we lose ourselves. Holding tension in the body is a response to how we are feeling emotionally. This can happen on an unconscious /subconscious level and it’s at that level of awareness we want to explore and draw out the wisdom, so that you can choose what environment you want to put yourself in and what changes need to be made in life.



Through awareness we think new thoughts and experience different emotions. This is what influences the action or lack of action we take in life.


“A memory without the emotional charge is called wisdom.” – Dr. Joe Dispenza.


It’s to be curious towards the subtle pull towards something in our lives and to trust and move towards that signal. These subtle pulls become louder and louder the more we ignore them.


Here are some examples of how they can show up in our lives,



“Something doesn’t feel right”


“Is this it!”


“I have always had problems with ….”


“I want a second opinion”


“I’m curious about…”


Jealousy, guilt, shame, triggers, reactivity, habits


Wants, needs and desires


Physical and mental health symptoms


Signals our body give us such as aches and pains or physiological responses.


The psychotherapy part of the work is drawing out the wisdom and insights in our lives that will change the way we think, feel and behave giving us different results and outcomes. This can be playful exploration and it can also be emotionally challenging too.
