Wholesome Counseling

Mindfulness based, body-centered assisted self study.

- Wholesome Counseling Vision

The way we experience life and the way we express ourselves is heavily influenced by our conscious and unconscious beliefs. Met and unmet needs, traumas, and conditioning in our lives form these beliefs through which we understand and navigate the world.

 

Changing these beliefs, and in turn changing our worlds, can require the support of a counselor with an awareness, compassion, focus, and tact to help you access, acknowledge, and course correct. Our talented counselors help empower you with the knowledge, resources, and experiences, with a loving presence and approach, to help liberate you from past conditioning, provide new options in your responses to situations, and help you live the life you desire and know is possible.

- The Hakomi Method

The Hakomi method and a Hakomi session can be described as assisted self study, where the principles of mindfulness, non violence, mind/body wholeness, unity, and organicity, help you access and change “core material.”

 

Hakomi is an experiential psychotherapy, meaning present, felt experience is used as a route to this core material. Therapists work with clients and often their strong emotions, bound energy, and their inner child, to find coherence in the client, and then help them to integrate new beliefs, modes and choices into everyday life.

 

It is in the ability to transform new possibilities discovered in the sessions into on-going actualities of daily living, where real change happens.
