What does a holistic counselling session look like?
The counselling sessions I offer work similarly to other Naturopathic appointments. We begin with whatever challenges are most important to you, and systematically work our way through how these manifest as behaviours or patterns in your life. We work at addressing root causes, and underlying emotional patterns.
What these session aren’t is a slow dredging and re-living of past events. Those types of sessions seem not to work as well. Sometimes past experiences come up, and we work with them as they arise.
In general, we focus on root emotions that weren’t processed the first time around. Most importantly, we focus on how those shelved emotions colour and inform your current behaviour patterns. Using techniques of Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy (CBT), acceptance, awareness, mindfulness and loving kindness, we take the most direct route back to optimal overall health.
