What is the difference between counselling and holistic counselling?

While some forms of counselling are listening to the presenting issues in your life, Holistic Counselling looks at the whole person and all of the elements that make you, you. These include emotional, social, mental, physical, financial, environmental, intellectual, cultural, spiritual, sexual and psychological. We look at you, how you fit into the world and how we can best support and strengthen you.

Together we can acknowledge what is impacting your life right now, further understand your current needs and using holistic techniques, work together on improving, accepting and surrendering to your life.
