A holistic counselor is conscious of clients in their totality; they take an integrative approach to healing the mind. Their work takes them into the multiple dimensions of human experience; the physical, the spiritual and the psychological. Where traditional counseling methods consider the psychological ramifications of issues and behaviours; holistic counseling assesses and treats from physical and spiritual contexts, as well as psychological or mental ones.
The level of emotional depth reached with counseling is very different from teaching or life coaching, it requires special skills to manage sensitivity in yourself as well as transference and projections, with an ability to discern the difference between supportive counseling, therapy or medical intervention. For this reason, students are incubated in a three-year student skills support program that meets Continuing Professional Development (CPD) requirements (CPD is a term used to describe the learning activities professionals engage in to develop and enhance their abilities.
