Holistic Life Coaching & Therapy

The word holistic is defined as:

  • Emphasizing the importance of the whole and the interdependence of its parts
  • Dealing with or treating the whole of something or someone and not just a part.

In holistic medicine it means “treating the whole person rather than just the symptoms (the effects) of a disease”.

Put another way, holistic is about looking at the trees without losing sight of the forest. It’s about seeing the forest and the trees and how they relate to each other.

My approach is to see and understand the whole person – Spirit Soul Heart Mind and Body – and to apply whichever process and tools are most appropriate and suitable for the individual, be they coaching or therapeutic tools (have a look at Is QEC Really Coaching?). Where I feel that I do not have the tools for a particular client’s needs, I refer the client to someone who does.

As a general rule, and regardless of the processes and tools I use, I always strive to assist my clients to raise their vibrational frequency.

Levels of Consciousness (and Vibrational Frequency of Emotions)

Dr. David R. Hawkins, a renowned psychiatrist and spiritual teacher, has developed the Map of Consciousness, a range of values, attitudes, and emotions that correspond to levels of consciousness.

He conducted over 250,000 calibrations during 20 years of research to define this range, along with a logarithmic scale of 1 to 1000. According to Dr. Hawkins, low levels of consciousness (below 200) are harmful to oneself and the world, while high levels (200 and above) lead to happiness for oneself and those around them.

The Map of Consciousness is based on a numerical system that assigns a value to various levels of consciousness, ranging from the lowest level of shame to the highest level of enlightenment. The higher one’s level, the better off one is, and more able to positively impact one’s own life and the world.

The majority of people on the planet are traumatised to a greater or lesser degree. In terms of Dr. Hawkins’ levels, this means that most of us are vibrating at a low frequency (the red and orange bands above). Unhealed trauma results in us experiencing emotions such as fear, anxiety, guilt and shame as the ‘norm’ in our daily experience of life. Clearing and healing the trauma – using a process such as QEC – results in us experiencing ourselves and life at a higher vibrational frequency, and we become happier, more contented, and more at peace with ourselves and life.

What I Do

When I started drafting the text for my website, I grappled with the question “exactly what is it that I do?”

Many labels could be used to describe what I do – coach, mentor, facilitator, consultant, thinking partner, therapist, analyst – all of which accurately describe aspects of what I do, yet none of which describe all of what I do.

So I decided to ask my clients for their perspectives, seen through the lenses of their individual experiences of working with me. There were similarities and differences in their feedback, yet there is a golden thread running through their experiences:

I assist people to transform their lives

and support them on their journeys

 
 
 

The questions which my clients ask are the same questions I’ve asked myself during the course of my life. For myself some of them have been answered, others are still works in progress…

What’s this life all about? What’s my purpose? What makes my heart sing? What’s blocking me from doing what I want to do, from achieving what I want to achieve, from having loving harmonious relationships, from being a good parent, from becoming unstuck? What does being authentic and true to myself look like? What do I really believe about myself and about life, and how are those beliefs manifesting in my life? Why do I keep on having the same kinds of problems – what do I need to learn from them, what gifts do they bear? What do I need to do? How do I do it?

All of these questions are aimed towards Self-discovery. Personal development. Healing. Transformation. Manifestation. Self-actualisation. Facilitating others’ journeys in the search for answers and change is my passion and what I was born to do.

What makes me able to do what I do? Although my educational qualifications [M.Prof (Coaching) from Middlesex University, U.K., QEC® Certified Practitioner] and my 20 years’ coaching experience are key factors, I believe that above all else it is my presence and intention that enables me to assist my clients and to facilitate the desired changes in their lives:

  • I see you
  • I hear you
  • I feel you
  • I understand you.

When I’m with you, I am really with you, in the here and now. I am fully present listening to you with all my senses, giving you 100% of my focus and attention, with your desired outcomes and highest good as my intention.
