Why "Holistic" Psychotherapy Matters

There's no widely accepted definition of what is meant by "holistic" psychotherapy. In health care, most folks recognize the term "holistic" in reference to alternative treatments as opposed to more mainstream medical interventions.

A similar distinction holds for the field of psychotherapy.

Any therapy that is holistic always considers the "big picture" in a client's life, rather than focusing exclusively on the psychological factors involved, as conventional therapies do.

Holistic therapies aim not just to provide symptom relief, but to give clients the ability and means for attaining a veritable transformation in their emotional lives.

With this holistic approach, we can now appreciate that genuine, lasting health is an ongoing process to be nurtured.

Therapy offers a practical way of finding an inner emotional balance which leads naturally to spiritual awareness. Therapy can be the key to a heartfelt transformation in your life, an invaluable "gift" for all who choose a spiritual path. More...

"Oftentimes it is in the search for relief from illness or emotional pain that people awaken to their true spiritual path."
