Holistic Counselling is dynamic and looks at life as a whole. It aims to solve a clients’ problems overall, not merely relative to one field or issue. Counselling is an interactive process between the counsellor and the client in which solutions emerge as a joint venture between the two. It is a journey in self-discovery in which the optimal human potentials can arise and be developed.
There is a whole new generation of counsellors , therapists, coaches and doctors, from various backgrounds, trainings and traditions. Our current medical doctors and psychiatrists may not be enough. Other approaches are necessary, not just to treat disease but to show us how to live better lives in body, mind and consciousness.
The barrier between disease treating medicine versus life counselling , management and guidance is breaking down, with disease-preventing and wellness enhancing approaches gaining more credibility, value and relevance.

Holistic counselling is not just another form of counselling among many others, though it does share some approaches with the most dynamic and transformative counselling approaches available today. Holistic counselling rests upon a special view of the human being, life, nature and consciousness that can be very different than what we find in modern medicine and its biological and chemical approaches.
Holistic counselling is a means of empowering our greater human potential, it recognises our entire individual nature as body, mind and spirit, including the workings of energy and the senses, and how these interconnect with a whole array of transformative forces.
Holistic counselling addresses all aspects of life from physical and psychological well-being, to career, prosperity, education, and one’s spiritual path if necessary. Its concern is not only individual well-being but also with that of the family, community, society and the world of nature.
