Vedic Counselling , is a dynamic therapy that 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.
A Whole Person Perspective
The counselling world is usually based on the physical and material, they tend to specialise on one element trying to bring the client into a functioning state by dealing with their materialistic needs and not the spiritual or inner person. Modern counselling usually reflect specific aspects of life like relationship counselling , career counselling is of or family counselling from the standpoint of a modern largely western view of the world, as linked with modern disciplines of psychology, sociology and career guidance. While Vedic counselling looks at the whole person.
The counselling looks for why the issue occurs and not just deal with what the issue is.
They look to use positive emotions to change neurological pathways instead of drugs. Creating a permanent change. It does this by sometimes changing behaviour or environment. The counsellor would be creating a rapport with the client and working together to find solutions, its a process of mutual learning and understanding. It is a journey of self discovery.
Modern Psychology and Vedic Counselling
Vedic counselling has similarities with modern Psychology especially through Jungs’ development of transpersonal psychology . It looks to understand the inner and spiritual psyche of the person which recognises the importance of the spiritual person.
