Frequently asked questions
What conditions can be treated by holistic psychotherapy?
In our Clinic, holistic psychotherapy clinicians specialize in the treatment of physical illness and disease, emotional issues, family dynamics, stage of life issues, work-related issues, sexual abuse, trauma, addiction (substances, food and unwanted behaviors), and stress and anxiety. Holistic psychotherapy does not take the place of traditional medicine, but rather works in concert with other treatment methods to help the healing process. Holistic psychotherapy primarily looks at specific areas of the body from an emotional, spiritual and energetic perspective and is designed to help heal the origin of the disease..
What are the non-traditional therapies involved in holistic psychotherapy?
Non-traditional therapies tap into various levels of mind-body- spirit healing. They have a strong spiritual component, incorporating elements of transpersonal psychology, energy medicine and other traditions of healing.
• Nutritional Therapy is a natural healing method that incorporates nutrition in the treatment program. We help our clients identify nutritionally based issues such as protein intake, blood sugar balance & hypoglycemia, food intolerances, and genetic issues in order to reduce depression, anxiety, insomnia, relapse, and even some psychotic symptoms. The treatment modalities include variety of the nutrition plans that are carefully selected based on the individual needs of the client.
• Creative art therapy uses drawing, painting, sculpture, photography and other forms of visual art expression. The patient does not need to be artistically gifted to benefit from creative art therapy, as it generally focuses on the symbolic meaning of the images, colors and the creative process.
• Breath therapy is a natural healing method that uses high vibrational energy activated by the breath to reduce stored emotions and past trauma that may contribute to disease. This type of therapy allows the patient to utilize breathing as a way to heal and restore the body, mind and spirit at a very deep level.
• Guided imagery is widely used to change a patient’s overall health by actively creating images of well-being. It can help the patient reduce the effects of certain medical and emotional conditions.
- Life Coaching may not be a therapeutic approach, but it is a great addition to the well know practices allowing the client to identify their needs and wonts when it comes to their life choices
How does the clinician decide which type of therapy to use?
During the first session, which lasts from 45 to 90 minutes, the patient and healthcare provider will establish goals for treatment. Subsequent sessions are usually 45 to 50 minutes. During each session, the clinician will focus on addressing the patient’s specific needs, allowing for greater flexibility between the different therapies as treatment progresses.
