What Is Holistic Counseling?

Holistic counseling considers our physical, emotional, and spiritual selves. It is a form of therapy that helps people heal by taking each of these states of being as well as an individual’s experiences into consideration to design treatment. This is different from traditional counseling and therapy methods, which focus on the psychological effects of issues and behaviors.

The holistic counselors at Thriveworks in West Hartford, CT have the proper licensure and accreditation to conduct therapy using this holistic approach. As we just touched on, these professionals will consider physical as well as spiritual components, which are not typically brought into the traditional therapy approaches:

  1. Physical components: Your Thriveworks West Hartford holistic counselor will look at your symptoms and issues that you bring to therapy and consider how your physical self is involved. The goal here is to create a sense of physical wellbeing. This might involve energy healing, yoga, massage techniques, or acupuncture.
  2. Spiritual components: Holistic counselors work from the basis that the human spirit is involved in mind, body, and soul healing. They might also have varying religious beliefs. In any case, they will often choose to incorporate a generalized spiritual involvement.

If you’re interested in exploring holistic counseling and its many benefits, reach out to Thriveworks. We can set you up with a counselor who can guide you on this physical, emotional, and spiritual journey as soon as today or tomorrow.
