Starting Holistic counseling

What is holistic counseling?

Holistic counseling with our therapists in Milford, CT is an inclusive therapeutic method that embraces the interconnected nature of an individual’s mental, physical, and spiritual well-being. It regards each person as a complete entity, recognizing the significance of their emotional, mental, and physical aspects along with their spiritual dimension. Holistic counselors are dedicated to pinpointing and addressing the underlying sources of mental and emotional difficulties, taking into consideration various factors like lifestyle, nutrition, stress triggers, and belief systems.

How does holistic counseling work?

Our holistic counseling therapists integrate a diverse range of supplementary therapies, mindfulness practices, and self-awareness strategies to facilitate healing, personal development, and harmony in your life, fostering an overall sense of completeness and robust health. Holistic counselors are dedicated to pinpointing and addressing the underlying sources of mental and emotional difficulties, taking into consideration various factors like lifestyle, nutrition, stress triggers, and belief systems.

Is holistic counseling conducted in person or online?

How long does holistic counseling last?

Need more help deciding?

Nowadays, people aren’t just interested in the traditional approaches to therapy. People aren’t just scheduling cognitive behavioral therapy or searching for a psychologist. Instead, they’re looking for holistic counselors who can provide treatment that considers one’s physical, emotional, and spiritual beings. Holistic counseling is a research-backed approach to therapy that uses various techniques to help clients heal psychologically and physically.

“The mind is not a vessel to be filled but a fire to be kindled.” –Plutarch

As with many other types of therapy and counseling, holistic counseling often varies greatly from one client to the next, as it is designed with the individual’s specific needs, goals, and interests in mind. For example, one might engage in yoga therapy and mindful meditation, while another individual might engage in walking therapy or hypnosis to achieve their desired results. Whatever the case, a holistic counselor at Thriveworks in Milford, CT can help you heal your entire being.

What Is Holistic Counseling? Can It Benefit Me?

As we touched on above, holistic counseling is a form of therapy that takes one’s physical, emotional, and spiritual self into consideration. It also considers one’s specific experiences, and in turn, helps the individual find healing. This differs from traditional approaches to therapy and counseling, which focus on psychological and mental effects.

The Thriveworks holistic counselors possess the proper licensure and accreditation to conduct holistic counseling. In addition, they have an impressive skillset, tools, and experience that will further enable them to help you in holistic counseling. As we mentioned earlier, these professionals will consider many components, including physical and spiritual components:

  1. Your physical self: Your holistic counselors at Thriveworks Milford in New Haven will assess any symptoms you are exhibiting as well as the specific issue(s) at hand and consider how your physical self has been impacted. The ultimate goal here with your physical self is to create a renewed sense of physical wellbeing. Your holistic counselor might use energy healing or massage techniques to do this.
  2. Your spiritual self: Your spiritual self is also important in holistic counseling. Your holistic counselor will work from the belief that your spirit is involved in mind, body, and soul suffering as well as healing. If you have specific religious inclinations, you can tell your holistic counselor who might incorporate these into treatment.

If you’re even the slightest bit interested in holistic counseling, consider working with a holistic counselor at Thriveworks in Milford, CT. These professionals are ready to get to work.

Gina is an incredibly skilled and talented clinician. She has the unique gift of making clients immediately feel safe and understood even upon first meeting. Her passion for the work is palpable. Her knowledge is vast and her approach is sensitive, gentle, supportive and compassionate, yet direct. Gina helped me navigate a tremendously challenging time in my life and afforded me the confidence to pursue personal goals that had initially felt unattainable. She taught me tangible skills to navigate anxiety and feelings of overwhelm during our work together and our sessions were always insightful and productive. Gina will lead you on a path to self discovery without all of the therapy lingo and jargon and will always help you to feel as though you’re the expert on your own life- because you are. I couldn’t recommend Gina more. A true diamond in the rough!
