Generally speaking, holistic therapy is a therapy that treats the whole person: mind, body, and spirit.
Traditional forms of therapy (and medicine) treat these parts of us separately, but holistic therapists address all of these together.
On the surface, it may seem like our problems are only related to certain aspects of ourselves. However, the issues we experience are rarely confined to just one element of our being. There is often a deeper connection, even if we cannot readily see it at first.
I support people like you in examining those deeper connections so that you can heal more fully. Helping you get the most out of therapy by viewing mind, body, and spirit as parts of a greater whole.
Holistic psychotherapy is similar to other forms of psychotherapy.
During therapy, I discuss life circumstances, triggers, memories, thought patterns, and other things that are affecting my clients’ mental health. But in holistic psychotherapy (as opposed to more traditional forms of psychotherapy), I discuss matters of the body and spirit as well.When our minds are unwell, our bodies and spirits struggle too. By pinpointing how our mental health affects our bodies and spirits, I can develop strategies to heal all of these parts. If we only address the mind, we miss out on crucial healing opportunities that lead to more lasting and comprehensive change.
To succeed in therapy, you have to believe that it works and that you will be successful.
Although I believe that holistic psychotherapy is for everyone, I also believe that you have to take the process seriously. As a society, we often neglect our bodies and spirits. Because of this, some of us struggle to embrace our physical and spiritual sides. Sometimes we are taught to behave this way, and other times we neglect these parts of ourselves due to fear or trauma.
Whatever the reason is, be ready to embrace this approach to healing and deeply connect with yourself.
I practice holistic psychotherapy to help my clients achieve lasting change. Some people regularly attend therapy as part of their self-care routines, but I want you to leave therapy confident, connected, and healed.
Many therapists understand that we hold trauma in our bodies. That’s why holistic therapy is highly effective for people struggling with trauma.
Put simply, trauma is our involuntary response to a stressful situation. However, many people believe that trauma only exists in people who struggle with PTSD or who survived extreme situations. But therapists know that trauma covers a wide range of things, from toxic relationships to losing a loved one.
Since trauma is often a “fight or flight” response, it is anatomical. While our minds can change significantly after we experience trauma, our bodies can go through physical changes as well. Our nervous system can become more sensitive, making us feel triggered more easily.
However, this physical change does not prevent us from healing. Holistic therapy can treat trauma’s effects on our body--as well as our mind and spirit. By experiencing a deeper connection with your body, you can understand and heal your trauma response.
Holistic therapy can absolutely help with anxiety and depression.
When we’re anxious, our minds reel. It feels impossible to find peaceful moments and quiet ourselves. On top of that, we can feel queasy, tense, and exhausted. Holistic psychotherapy addresses all of these things.
People who experience depression attest to its overwhelming physical and mental effects. When we’re depressed, we lose hope. Our spirits are crushed, and we hold this sadness in our sleeping and waking moments. In holistic psychotherapy, we can treat all aspects of your depression—not only your thoughts.
As with so many other issues, holistic therapy is helpful for people experiencing grief. Our entire world shatters when we experience a loss, and in order to make sense of the experience, it’s important to consider all aspects of your being.
