What is Holistic Counselling?
Holistic Counselling treats the client as a whole, instead of treating just the symptoms. A Holistic Counsellor will look deeper into an individual's overall physical, mental, emotional and spiritual wellbeing, including life experiences to uncover underlying causes. A number of techniques and tools are used to bring client awareness and acceptance to the surface using Talk therapy, mindfulness, energy medicine, soul & dream work, nutrition & exercise review.
Incorporating an integrative approach to counselling, we journey alongside our clients to explore and discover aspects of their multidimensional self and human experience. We do not see clients as damaged or needing to be 'rescued'. Instead, the focus is on uncovering, acknowledging, healing and aligning to their true soul aspects - to live a balanced and meaningful life.
Holistic Counselling is effective in treating and supporting the following
life challenges. This is done in a safe and supportive environment.
Soulworks also offer individual and group support for the following:
women with Endometriosis
individuals who care for a loved one or friend with mental illness

Counselling Method to Heal, Grow and Thrive
The Soulworks method offers a number of checkpoints to ensure:
1. Counsellor and client are the right fit.
2. Information about the client's history, personal stories and medical history is captured.
3. Client goals and expectations are documented.
4. Different tools and practices are discussed to ensure the client is comfortable with the approach.
5. Treatment plans are developed to understand an approximate number of sessions required.
Personalised treatment will generally include a number of modalities to ensure an integrative approach is implemented and we keep to therapy goals.
The Soulworks provides a safe space to share and release feelings and personal experiences. Any information shared in the sessions will be confidential. Any information passed on, including information to your doctor or a health practitioner, will only be shared with your permission.
'The depth that you arrive at in a Holistic Counselling session is truly remarkable. I could see and feel how my belief system affected my choices and physical body.'
