Mind-Body Counseling Services

Mind-body counselling looks the connections between emotional, mental and physical wellbeing. The mind and body are connected in both directions - each affects the other:

  • The body can affect the mind - for example the horrible experience of sea-sickness
  • The mind can affect the body - for example the physical impacts of grief or stress

How therapy can help

Therapy helps with mind-body problems by working with clients to understand and untangle the two-way connection between mind and body. It is a safe space to talk about and explore what is happening so it can be made sense of. The long term goal is to reintegrate mind and body through compassionate insight and understanding.
