WHAT IS HOLISTIC COUNSELLING?
Holistic Counselling is a little different from other more mainstream counselling styles, though it uses much of the methodology of a variety of other styles of counselling and psychotherapy at times. Holistic Counselling is based in Humanistic Psychology. It is similar to life coaching as it seeks to inspire the person to become more empowered in making decisions and choices by developing life skills that will enable them to do so.
As a qualified and registered therapist, I assist the individual with developing new living skills and new ways of thinking. This allows them to make confident choices about their future and not continue to let the events of the past have any power on the present or in their future.
Holistic Counselling is based on the theory that one element of a person cannot be healthy without all of the other aspects of the person being in balance and harmony. It is similar to life coaching as holistic counselling seeks to inspire the person to become more empowered in making decisions and choices by developing life skills that will enable them to do so.
WHAT IS THE AIM OF HOLISTIC COUNSELLING?
Holistic Counselling provides practical tools that are used for self empowerment, confidence, stress management and coping. The person is then equipped with specific skills and techniques that will assist them in achieving goals they have set for themselves, manage their life in ways that are more fulfilling and lead the life they want to live.

WHAT IS SELF-IMAGE AND SELF ESTEEM?
SELF-IMAGE is the idea, or mental image one has of oneself. SELF-ESTEEM is respect or favorable image of oneself.
So, Self-image is how you perceive yourself. It is a number of self-impressions that have built up over time.
Undeniably your self-image has a strong impact on your happiness and your outlook on life.
Clinical studies has shown that the most important factor to happiness and well-being is self-esteem. Improving your self-image and self-esteem will improve other aspects of your life such as academic or financial success, relationships and your health!
HOW DOES YOUR SELF IMAGE AFFECT YOU?
Our self-image affects the way we think, the choices we make and the way we approach life.
Developing a positive self-image builds confidence and allows us to feel comfortable with who we are and what we are doing with our lives.
This positive sense of health assists in reducing reactive behavior and negative patterns stored in our subconscious minds.
HOW DOES THE WAY I THINK AND MY BELIEFS AFFECT MY LIFE?
The subconscious mind is over a million times more powerful at processing information than the subconscious mind.
For most people 95% of the time we run our lives from the subconscious mind.
Beliefs filter the way we are able to receive and assimilate information. Our beliefs direct us how to embody. perceive and respond to what is happening in and around us.
Beliefs are formed by being attached to our past memories, experiences, emotional events and programming from significant sources in our lives. They are also formed through traumatic experiences or events in our life as they become attached to the emotions associated with the experience.
Therefore they can have a negative impact on our thoughts, feelings and the way we view the world.You can change the character of your life by changing your beliefs!
We spend more time with ourselves each day than we do with anyone else. We spend hours each day communicating with ourselves, either consciously or subconsciously.
Your thoughts create your state of mind. What you think affects the way you feel and the way you experience life.
HOW DOES MY ATTITUDE TOWARDS LIFE AFFECT ME?
A consistently positive attitude helps create a positive reality. What we believe creates our reality - so believe in a positive attitude.
If you are depressed - you are living in the past.
If you are anxious - you are living in the future
If you are at peace - you are living in the present.
To design the future effectively, you must first be prepared to let go of the past. Let go of control and embrace what happens.
HOW DO I BUILD SELF-ESTEEM?
To develop the power of self-esteem and make it work for you, begin by acknowledging that you have the will and choice to take responsibility of who you are, how you see yourself and what direction you want to go in.
You are responsible for yourself.
Your happiness depends a great deal upon what you tell yourself, the way you think about things, how you treat yourself and how you interpret your world. Start with positive self-talk.
HOW DO I BUILD EMOTIONAL RESILIENCE?
Emotional resilience is ones ability to cope and adapt to stressful situations and crises.
You can improve your capacity for resilience at any time of life.
A positive self-image and self-esteem is the foundation of happiness and building emotional resilience.
Mindfulness is an established, effective tool for stress management. Developing coping techniques and stress management skills assists with a happier, healthier life.
"Only you can make yourself happy"
THE HARDEST JOURNEY IS THE ONE YOU NEVER BEGIN.
If this resonates with you, reassert control and start to make positive choices. Live the life you want to live.
Change can act as a voyage of discovery from which great benefits come. Change brings new possibilities and opportunities.
Don't be confined by fear of the unknown and fear of failing.
