Psychotherapy at Holistic Healing NYC
Traditionally, psychotherapy aims to increase an individual’s sense of well-being with a focus on improving mental health through a range of techniques including experiential relationship building, talk therapy and cognitive behavioral therapy. At Holistic Healing NY the holistic approach to psychotherapy involves addressing not only the individual’s mental well-being but also the individual’s physical, emotional and spiritual well-being. The goal is to help the individual heal entirely in order to achieve mental balance and clarity.
In assessing the individual’s mental health, holistic psychotherapy takes into account all contributing factors. For instance, for an individual suffering from a long-term physical illness, their physical state and symptoms must be taken into account in order to help in improving their mental state.
A holistic approach to psychotherapy may provide treatment and healing for psychological disorders including:
• anxiety disorders, such as obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), phobias or panic disorder
• mood disorders, such as depression or bipolar disorder
• eating disorders, such as anorexia or bulimia
• personality disorders, such as antisocial personality or borderline personality disorder
• psychotic disorders, such as schizophrenia or other disorders causing detachment from reality
A holistic approach to psychotherapy can also be effective in dealing with the stresses and conflicts of everyday life. The process of psychotherapy may help the individual gain insight into resolving conflicts, coping with major life changes, learning to manage negative behaviors or recovering from a trauma.
When the ego is conflicted and not in alignment with the heart center the individual feels “negative” emotions and thought forms. The individual often feels “stuck” in life. Holistic psychotherapy helps to identify and process the feelings and emotions attached to thoughts, behaviors and belief systems. This brings one back into alignment with their heart center and their true self.
Holistic modalities utilized in holistic psychotherapy may include aromatherapy, color healing, counseling, emotional chakra release, energy healing, guided imagery healing, hypnotherapy, meditation, reiki healing, relaxation training, or sound healing.
