My approach to wellness and counselling

Years of study, research, and work have proved to me that the path to well-being and mental health is to nourish and balance our "body, mind, and soul". The balance between them is the source of our inner peace and contentment and being in harmony in life. We lose sometimes this balance, because of the wounds of past events (especially childhood), emotional & physical challenges of now, missing the sense of purpose in life, or identifying our human reality with wrong values.

 

I aim to help you bring the balance again into your emotional, behavioral, and mental state by helping you to tap into your inborn strengths and capacities and learn to navigate your life based on them, Then you can set more fulfilling goals for your life, go more gracefully through hardships and live with more contentment, joy, and inner peace. To do so, I rely upon my expertise and knowledge of learning processes, somatic healing (healing trauma by working on the body), positive psychology, CBT therapy, EMDR therapy, and trauma-coaching skills, combined with eastern philosophy and psychology.

In my counseling after screening the current and past history of the client, we set various goals and target various issues. The work is not only during the sessions though. I always give my clients some small tasks to carry on between the sessions, after all, emotional and behavioral patterns are not easy to change and require practice. Regardless of the type of challenges and goals, after the complete screening, there will be three, more or less parallel, works:

1. Finding inner resources to heal and grow: Through a survey, we map your strengths and the existing resources that can help you in the process of managing your challenge and also use to create new patterns in your life.

2. Healing the wounds of the past: we look into the unhealed and unprocessed emotions, memories, and experiences. These wounds can be the result of childhood neglect, abuse, or unmet or harshly suppressed needs. These wounds of the past impact your current emotions, behaviors and even your physical well-being. Many of our beliefs are formed based on our previous experiences and the environment we have been living in, especially during our childhood. 

3. Working on body-mind relation: We look into how these emotions and experienced are sitting on your body and how we can reset and reduce their impact on your nervous system. We need also to remove the stress that sits on our bodies and create new patterns in our ' minds, body, and soul'.

 

However, it is important to point out that there is not one prescription for all people that have one challenge for example chronic fear. To manage the fear, we need to come to balance again in our body, mind, and soul. But what brings one individual into balance is different from the other. This is because people have different histories, mental constitutions, genetics, etc. So as a well-being coach and counsellor I approach each of my clients differently as a genuine and informed supporter and companion in their challenges in inquiries about living their authentic selves.

"On the path of managing your emotional and behavioural challenges and cultivating your strengths and innate capacities, you learn more and more about who your true selves is. The 'true self' that is beyond material things like your body, education, possession, etc. It is transcendent and is like a mine filled with gems of inestimable values such as love, empathy, calm, wisdom, confidence, understanding, joy, etc.

The true self that is authentic and yet unified and is ever evolving."
