What is Holistic Counselling?

What is Holistic Counselling?

A popular question I get asked is “what is holistic counselling and how does it differ from traditional counselling?”

Holistic Counselling is an approach that incorporates mind, body and soul…

I believe seeing you as a whole being is so important to your overall healing…

My approach allows me to support you on all levels, not just your surface level symptoms but the deeper core reasons for your experiences.

My holistic approach incorporates counselling, EFT Tapping and spiritual guidance.

Mind = Counselling

Body = EFT Tapping

Soul = Spiritual Guidance

If we think about traditional counselling it is focused more on the mind and not so much on the role of the body and the soul, and whilst it absolutely has it’s merits, I feel it is leaving opportunities on the table for deep healing.

Holistic Counselling is focusing on all of you...

It reminds me of that song we were taught as kids about our skeleton… “Dem Bones”…

“The foot bone’s connected to the leg bone.  The leg bone’s connected to the knee bone.  The knee bone’s connected to the thigh bone.”  You get the idea…

Just like our bones are connected within our skeleton, our mind, body and soul are also connected…

What happens in one affects the other, for example:

A thought in the mind, sends a signal to the body, that invokes a physical response that causes a feeling, that sends a response back to the mind…

As you can see working on just the one area, can have an affect, but working on all of you will have such a bigger impact on you and your healing.

That is why Holistic Counselling is so powerful, it is founded on the understanding of the power of talk therapy (mind) combined with somatic (body) healing and spiritual healing (soul).

Why I chose Holistic Counselling...

Another question I get asked is why I chose to be a Holistic Counsellor instead of a traditional Counsellor…

When I felt called to train as a Counsellor and yes it is a calling as opposed to a job, it coincided with guidance to also train as an EFT Practitioner…

These two paths were running parallel alongside each other at the time, I was studying both vocations at the same time.  At the time I had no idea how they would come together as a beautiful powerhouse couple.

I’ll be honest I tried the traditional counselling role for a while, but it felt very much like I was trying to fit a square peg (me) into a round hole, I just didn’t fit.

I knew deep inside me there was something more profound building even if I couldn’t see it yet…

As I finished my years of study in both Counselling and EFT Tapping I started to see a new path forming and that included Counselling, EFT Tapping and my all time love of working in the Angelic Realm.

I soon saw how this unique combination allowed me to work with all of you, in mind, body and soul.  It then was revealed to me that this was my very own version of Holistic Counselling.

How Holistic Counselling Can Help You...

Holistic Counselling in my opinion is an empowering therapy, it puts you in the drivers seat of your life…

The way in which I do it is called ‘person centred therapy’ and what that means is I follow your lead, your healing is done at your pace and in your way…

This in itself empowers you to know you are in control of your life, you get to make the changes you choose to make…

You learn empowering ways to support yourself in mind, body and soul…

Holistic Counselling is a safe way to delve deeper inside of you to uncover core reasons to your experiences…

As we uncover these core reasons, together we can work on healing and releasing events that you have been carrying around for many years.

As you experience this deep healing a beautiful side effect is understanding yourself on such a deep level it will feel transformative.

What can the aftermath of Holistic Counselling look like?

As human beings we are naturally curious, so you may be wondering what experiences others have had with Holistic Counselling…

I have put together some case studies from past clients for you to read through and decide for yourself if Holistic Counselling here at Nicole Ivens Holistic Counselling feels right for you…

How you can work with me privately:

“I am a Holistic Counsellor and Accredited & Certified Clinical EFT Practitioner based in Pimpama, Gold Coast, Australia.

My approach is to bridge traditional and alternative therapies, my experience has shown me that being a bridge between the two worlds and combining talk therapy with EFT Tapping is very effective.

You don’t have to wait till all the wheels fall off to ask for help, I have noticed with some of my clients that this is where they have to get to before they will reach out.

My role is to provide a safe space for you to express how you are feeling, knowing I will hear you; I will understand you and I will validate how you are feeling.

I help you to find what is causing you to feel the way you do and using EFT to help heal the underlying cause.”

Sessions available in person on the Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia and online worldwide.
