I believe that working holistically is paramount to one’s wellbeing. When it comes to grief and trauma, it has been empirically proven that mental health does not follow a linear diagnostic medical model. The medical model also often restricts us from appreciating the impacts of culture and faith (CALD) in mental health.
Society’s influences are implicit in our development, particularly from infancy and through our childhood. It is crucial to understand how the people we have interacted with may have left impressions on our personalities, and thus our actions.
My approach include Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT), Mindfulness, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT), The Gottman Method, Family Systems, and Meaning Making (Logotherapy). My approach is determined by what resonates with you.
However, I operate on a biopsychosocio-spiritual framework as I feel this allows me to practice as holistically as possible, regardless of my approach.
“Holistic self-realization is the realization of your heart’s desire. Why holistic?
Because it involves your entire being. ”
