Welcome, I would like to introduce you to the concept of holistic wellness. I am registered. I am a licenced ASCHP holistic wellness counsellor and work in the wellness profession, focusing on frequent core areas that people struggle with. ASCHP's holistic wellness approach focuses on improving your quality of life by examining seven key areas that promote emotional and mental wellness rather than treating a condition. I employ a blend of holistic talk therapy, personal development, and life coaching to help achieve your personal goals.
Bill Hettler pioneered the notion of holistic wellbeing in the 1970s, and it is becoming increasingly important as we learn more about the science of human behaviour and social relationships. See it as a beginning point for improving your quality of life.
The seven areas of holistic wellbeing are emotional, intellectual, spiritual, social, environmental, physical, and occupational.
When aiding you with your therapy needs, I examine these factors. In most circumstances, this might lead to underlying factors that drive bad feelings and emotions. Knowing this, and identifying crucial areas, talk therapy and personal development can be valuable to you, with the potential to improve your quality of life when used properly.
Reflecting on holistic wellbeing and attending a few counselling sessions together has made a significant difference in our lives. We frequently had squabbles over minor issues, which resulted to intense arguments. Attending couples counselling is useful.
We would like to encourage you to seek holistic wellness counselling; it was not a quick fix for our relationship, but we were able to overcome our issues and our relationship has significantly improved. We discovered and corrected our faults.
See! I'm smiling once more. I was in such a deep, dark hole of hopelessness and grief that I felt like taking my own life because I could no longer bear to live this way. I noticed a post on my Facebook page suddenly, and rather than taking my own life, I reached out to Jacques.
I discovered a wealth of support along with taking up fresh perspectives. Jacques taught me how to raise my sense of self-worth and confidence. I was able to change my life and find new purpose in it with his assistance. Before giving up, I would like to urge you to ask for assistance.
We used to argue all the time, so we are relieved that things are back on track in our marriage. We sought the advice of various marriage counsellors, but to no avail. After deciding to get in touch with Life Stream, we discovered how successful Jacques' counselling style is.
We relished the more hands-on mentoring and personal growth that helped us mature at our own pace and pick up new skills. We gain improved conflict resolution and anger management skills.We highly recommend other couples to visit Jacques; he's every bit the counsellor one seeks.

Based on the holistic principle, talk therapy operates under the assumption that everything is interconnected; for example, the way we think influences how we feel, and how we conduct in response reinforces the way we think. On the contrary, our response to a circumstance is more technical in nature.
Understanding the basic practicalities of talk therapy and adding the holistic spectrum to the mix yields around 24 different sorts of thought patterns. Think of a chess board; by changing the chess pieces, we push our opponent to rethink their strategy. We do the same in talk therapy to elicit a different emotional reaction.
This can help with anxiety, sadness, and anger reduction, as well as trauma and grief management. In addition, depending on your counselling needs, we can include various learning approaches to teach new productive habits and unlearn negative ones.
To summarise, talk therapy is a beneficial global approach that can help you achieve your counselling goals, but we must never overlook the fundamentals such as active listening and positive regard.
Secondly, holistic wellness, I believe it's inadequate without following a personal development programme, and this distinguishes me from others. And combining talk therapy with personal development, we get a potent combination.
Comparing talk Therapy, it is effective in the present moment whereas personal development is intended for the long-term. Personal development contributes to the development of emotional intelligence.
To conclude this section, all this aids in the development of stronger social skills, emotional management, self-awareness, empathy, and motivation. All are important aspects of overall well-being, thus reinforcing the holistic wellness approach.
Let us look at life coaching. We should not discount it in holistic wellness. When we take talk therapy and personal development into account, how can we implement new life skills? It's simple on paper, but in practice, not so.
This is why working with a professional can be beneficial to you; not only dealing with negative feelings and emotions, but also address the source, and if you need to make some lifestyle changes, you have someone to asssit.
In conclusion , here is my holistic approach to improving your overall well-being before we go into larger difficulties. It is a strong and natural way to handle elements of your life that you are struggling with.
Every counselling session is confidential including one-on-one individual session for couples or spouses. The only exception that is required by law to breach confidentiality is life endangerment and self-harm. On the other hand, if I am subpoenaed by the court, I am required by law to cooperate.
ASCHP requires all clients to sign a consent form allowing me permission for providing my services to you. Along with ASCHP, it is customary to complete a consent form. However, I do not request personal information, such as banking information. All I need is your name, surname, and next of kin. Your next of kin is for emergences on-site or online.
