Counselling Near Me

Counselling is the process of talking about events and experiences to work through your personal problems, with a professional counsellor. The counsellor provides a safe, supportive, relationship to help the person develop an understanding of themselves and to make changes in their lives. A trained or professional counsellor has usually studied counselling, psychology or psychotherapy at university level for between three and six years.

And holistic counselling is just one type of counselling practices. Holistic counselling works with the entirety of the person – their body, mind, and spirit. It views physiological and psychological disorders as only parts of a greater whole, and values body symptoms as important information that guides us towards alignment and balance.

Holistic counselling also means not losing the individual in their symptoms and acknowledging their inherent worthiness and wholeness. As a result, this empowers clients to discover and access their inner wisdom, grow self-awareness and self-acceptance, and build internal resources and skills.

Energy Practices: Pranic Psychotherapy and Thought Field Therapy (TFT)

Pranic Psychotherapy is a non-touch therapy that focuses on the subtle energy field that surrounds the body and embeds the mind and emotions. The negative mental and emotional influences are removed from the field and replaced with positive energy by utilising prana or life energy. This kind of therapy is the best treatment for stress, irritability, anxiety, grief, fear, addiction, and low mood.

Meanwhile, Thought Field Therapy (TFT) involves focusing on your thoughts and feelings while you gently tap natural comfort spots that correspond to acupressure points, in a sequence customised for different challenges. This calms the mind and body and relieves stored stress and trauma. Schedule your appointment with our practitioner now.

Therapeutic Breathwork 

Therapeutic Breathwork is suitable for various healing challenges. This slow breathing practice is helpful to balance the nervous system, restore calmness and hope. When regularly practised, it can improve anxiety, depression, PTSD, insomnia, and high blood pressure. The slow breathing practice can be learned and is included within a counselling session.

A faster breathing practice can be used to move through emotional and psychological holding patterns and to gain mental clarity. This involves setting a goal and having gentle emotional support during a stand-alone breathwork session.

Our health care services in Victoria, Australia offers all these therapeutic sessions. Visit us now or give us a call at 03 4343 2844 to book your appointment.
