Holistic Psychotherapy seeks to increase an individual's sense of holistic well being. It is not a traditional therapeutic nor medical treatment for the improvement of mental illness. Nor should it take the place of traditional treatment for those disorders.There is no diagnosis nor treatment of disease for the individual in this type of treatment. The therapist is merely a facilitator or helper to the client's own self actualized, self-development.
Body, mind, and spirit are recognized as being integral to the individual's concept of self. The whole spectrum of human development is integrated in this technique. It allows the client's whole self to emerge during sessions. The client is free to examine all aspects of his or her life. Conclusions are drawn and practices are put in place based on what the client agrees to be important or germane to his or her holistic well being.
