Holistic Counselling focuses on the whole person rather than just the symptoms of an issue. It regards the mind, the body and the spirit as fundamentally interconnected.
When confronted with cancer you may experience a myriad of feelings and emotions. At a time where calm and balance is beneficial you can find yourself overwhelmed and consumed by fear.
Faith Hope & Healing uses therapies that deal with the physical, mental, spiritual and emotional aspects of yourself as you learn how to cope.
India also offers Counselling to non cancer clients, once again using a holistic approach to promoting wellbeing and personal growth.
The Counselling Process
Faith Hope & Healing offer the following information to provide some idea of what to expect in the sessions. It’s sometimes difficult to take that first step in talking to a Counseller, however most people tell us that they receive great benefit in doing so.
The Initial session – Time: 1 / ½ hours in duration
The first session at Faith Hope & Healing allows us to get to know each other. We will do a short meditation together to help you feel relaxed in the space, giving maximum benefit to the time we share.
You will have the opportunity to tell me your personal story in detail and together we will set some practical goals to help you in daily life. We can also discuss terms of payment, length of session times and how many sessions you may require.
You may notice me taking notes in the session. This helps me remember key points as I am listening. You are welcome to read them any time on request.
(24 hours prior notice must be given)
Additional sessions – 1 hour in duration
Once again the sessions will begin with a short relaxation Meditation. Within these follow on sessions we will be working through any issues and concerns in more depth and will work together on some strategies. We may also bring in other members of your family or friends if you feel it is appropriate. There will also be time for feedback.
Meditation & Support Groups
Meditation and Support Groups are key healing strategies at Faith Hope & Healing. Teaching is available either one on one or in groups and we can discuss this in more detail during your initial session.
