What is Holistic Therapy?

 

 

Holistic Therapy or Psycho-Spiritual Therapy treats the whole person. "Holistic" comes from the Greek word Holos, meaning "whole". Rather than just addressing an immediate symptom, a Holistic Therapist will look for the underlying cause by considering current physical, mental, emotional, social and spiritual states of health and wellbeing. 

 

Holistic Therapy or Psycho-Spiritual Therapy both focus on the interconnectedness of mind, body, and spirit, recognizing that true healing involves addressing all aspects of a person's well-being.

A Psycho-Spiritual Therapist can help you navigate life's challenges by addressing the deep-rooted connections between your psychological and spiritual well-being. They assist in uncovering and healing past traumas, fostering self-awareness, and facilitating spiritual growth.

 

The goal of a holistic approach is to balance all the different aspects of the person, so the entire person is addressed in treatment and not just one aspect. For instance, in the traditional Western medical approach, someone with arthritis would be treated by a specialist who would address their arthritis with medicines and other interventions. Using holistic therapy, instead of just treating someone’s arthritis, the person’s emotional aspects, attitudes and beliefs (mental), relationships and how they are affected by their illness, and spiritual aspects (deeper rooted meanings about one’s existence and future) would all be addressed in the treatment process.

 

Holistic Healing enables the client to get to the root of the problem, meaning why did the “dis-ease” occur in the first place, as every ailment is an outcome of a deeper lying issue. Once the root cause is established, the therapist tackles the underlying blockage at the source, thus eradicating the manifested ailment.
