HOLISTIC PSYCHOTHERAPY

Psychotherapy is a treatment in which a trained person establishes a relationship with an individual for the purpose of modifying or removing existing symptoms and promoting personality growth.

Holistic Psychotherapy works on the premise that we are all body, emotions, mind and soul, interconnected.

That our environment, family, history and beliefs come together to inform how we experience life.

We don't consider what is 'wrong' with us, but rather work towards a greater understanding and acceptance of how we operate in the world, and using this understanding as a foundation to discover the best tools and approaches that can guide us to create more inner ease and peace. 

Holistic Psychotherapy teaches us that we are each individuals, greater than the sum of our parts, and consideration of the connections between these parts helps us towards our own healing.

OUT IN NATURE

Bringing traditional Holistic Psychotherapy out into Nature allows as more space to explore our inner worlds through different mediums, including movement and metaphor.

It gets us out of the familiar environment which itself could be causing some of our distress.

It allows us fresh air, sunshine, and the alleviation of the discomfort some of us feel when being asked to sit still. Especially difficult when we are also working through uncomfortable emotions or thoughts.

It helps create more transference of the epiphanies and lessons we have during therapy, as nature flows through all of life.

Studies show the positive impact Nature has on our nervous system.

So.....
