HOLISTIC COUNSELLING

Take care of yourself Holistically with S.T.E.P.S

Grow in Self-Acceptance

Holistic counselling takes into account the whole person. It sees all areas of your life as equally important. It helps you grow in self-awareness and self-acceptance by creating strategies to grow emotionally and deal with any issues holding you back.

Holistic Counselling for grief

Who I provide Holistic Counselling for

I help people just like you, who are struggling to keep it all together; struggling with the mental load. The modern life has so many demands, that you can end up feeling overwhelmed, isolated and alone.

But, you are not alone..

As a holistic counsellor, I can help you overcome that stuck feeling by helping you work through issues such as:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Stress
  • Grief and loss
  • Relationship breakdowns
  • Establishing Healthy boundaries
  • Co parenting
  • Work Life balance

My holistic therapy and counselling can be held in-person in my Boonah practice and can also be held online through video conference. Counselling of this nature is equally effective when held online in the comfort of your own surroundings, allowing me to help clients Australia wide.

What happens in Holistic Counselling sessions?

Utilising different approaches, such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Narrative Therapy, Solution Focused approach and EMDR (Eye Movement, Desensitisation and Reprocessing), I assist clients to live their best life.

Practicing holistic self-care in five key areas of their lives is also important. I created a holistic counselling framework called “STEPS”, where each aspect of self-care is clearly represented.

STEPS stands for

  • Social
  • Thinking
  • Emotional
  • Physical and
  • Spiritual Self-care
Self Care Cards in Counselling

Social self-care

is about the quality of your relationships, connection with others, family, friends, boss, co-workers etc.

Thinking self-care

is about awareness of your thoughts and how they contribute to your psychological wellbeing.

Emotional self-care

is about exploring your feelings and asking whether they indicate lack of balance in your life / what they show you about your life.

Physical self-care

is about nurturing your body with appropriate food, sleep and exercise.

Spiritual self-care

is about connecting to something bigger than yourself as you search for meaning in your life.

Supported by the STEPS self-care framework, my clients experience a level of emotional wellbeing and self-awareness that naturally paves the way for positive personal growth.

Julie’s Story

 

Julie felt her world was spiralling out of control. Running a successful catering business in Brisbane, Julie was able to put on a happy face at work, but was going home feeling exhausted and defeated. She went through a painful divorce three years ago and while her ex-husband seems to have moved on with a new young wife and family, Julie was feeling stuck.

Co-parenting their three teenage children with her ex was also becoming an issue. The kids were playing the parents off against each other and the older ones were choosing to stay with their father even on Julie’s scheduled weekends, which was very painful for her.

For some time, Julie had been drinking more and more each night to numb her overwhelmingly negative feelings. She was also questioning her current relationship, wondering whether she was only in it to stop feeling lonely. No longer trusting herself, she was now questioning all her decisions to the point of feeling paralysed.
