“The goal of individuation is wholeness, as much as we can accomplish, not the triumph of the ego.” ― James Hollis, The Middle Passage: From Misery to Meaning in Midlife

Practices on How to Live and Work Holistically:
A Psychosynthesis Approach
(Of interest to individuals and professionals wanting to enhance their holistic framework and practices)

Those who live, think and work holistically, whether it be personally or as a psychotherapist, counselor, coach, mental health worker etc., are oriented towards balance, integration and freedom in our own lives as well as in the lives of our clients. We seek expansion in service of actualizing potential, authenticity, and alignment in daily life. Without an integrated understanding and approach that integrates this understanding into practices, we may be inadvertently supporting a schism in our clients and a move away from the process of integration and strength that working holistically offers. How can we live and work so that we are moving towards healing, balance, and harmony in our practices and building an essential foundation for change. In this online certification program on holistic and integrated approaches, you will learn:

  • how to consider the dimensions of body, mind and spirit in our clients
  • how to view a client’s attached roles, identifications, habits, patterns as roadblocks to change
  • how to loosen the rigidity of a client’s patterns
  • the different dimensions of the will
  • how to understand the difference between using will power vs drawing on an integrated will
  • how to expand a client’s awareness and to develop more stamina, steadfastness, etc. for the change process
  • how to cultivate practices and homework exercises which support the capacity for changing between coaching sessions
  • how to keep awareness and the excitement of changing alive
  • how to build the strength, the energy and capacity of the will to propel the movement of change

This program will take your practice to a more informed and sophisticated level.

My Philosophy

I believe there is a thread that is particular to each of our lives. This thread informs our life direction and purpose. To me, personal freedom comes from a radical acceptance of who we are and is supported by a steadfast pursuit of our truth as it unfolds and presents itself.  We can become more at ease with aligning with our essence and to relaxing into thriving rather than surviving, enduring or efforting: “To become a person does not necessarily mean to be well adjusted, adapted, approved of by others….. We are meant to become more eccentric, more peculiar, more odd .. not meant just to fit in. We are here to be the individual” (James Hollis, Jungian analyst.)
