Counseling Psychotherapy

The treatment of mental and emotional disorders through the use of psychological techniques designed to encourage communication of conflicts and insight into problems, with the goal being relief of symptoms, changes in behavior leading to improved social and vocational functioning, and personality growth. – The American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language.

Most forms of psychotherapy use only spoken conversation, though some also use various other forms of communication such as the written word, artwork, drama, narrative story, or therapeutic touch. Psychotherapy occurs within a structured encounter between a trained therapist and client(s). Purposeful, theoretically based psychotherapy began in the 19th century with psychoanalysis; since then, scores of other approaches have been developed and continue to be created.

Benefits of psychotherapy:

The generally accepted aims of psychotherapy are:

• Increased insight or improved understanding of one’s own mental state. This can range from simply knowing one’s strengths and weaknesses to understanding that symptoms are signs of a mental illness and to deep awareness and acceptance of inner feelings.

• The resolution of disabling conflicts, or working to create a peaceful and positive settlement of emotional struggles that stop a person from living a reasonably happy and productive life.

• Increasing acceptance of self by developing a more realistic and positive appraisal of the person’s strengths and abilities.

• Development of improved and more efficient and successful means of dealing with problems so that the patient can find solutions or means of coping with them.

• An overall strengthening of ego structure, or sense of self, so that normal, healthy means of coping with life situations can be called upon and used as needed.

Counseling psychology

Counseling psychology as a psychological specialty facilitates personal and interpersonal functioning across the life span with a focus on emotional, social, vocational, educational, health-related, developmental, and organizational concerns. Through the integration of theory, research, and practice, and with a sensitivity to multicultural issues, this specialty encompasses a broad range of practices that help people improve their well-being, alleviate distress and maladjustment, resolve crises, and increase their ability to live more highly functioning lives.

Group Therapy

Group therapy is a form of psychosocial treatment where a small group of patients meet regularly to talk, interact, and discuss problems with each other and the group leader (therapist).

Body Psychotherapy

(also known as Body-Oriented Psychotherapy, Somatic Psychology) is a branch of Psychotherapy with roots in the pre-Freudian work of Pierre Janet. It addresses itself to both body and mind, and emphasizes the relationship between the two.

Child psychotherapy

There are several different techniques to approach the psychoanalytic treatment of children. If children are at a very young age an adapted psychoanalytic technique maybe necessary. In some cases parent-infant psychotherapy is a possibility. Two techniques will be discussed: Parent-Infant Psychotherapy and Mentaliseren Bevorderende Kinder Therapie (MBKT). Parent-Infant Psychotherapy addresses problems with normal bonding between parent and child. MBKT addresses problems with an infant’s ability to distinguish reality and fantasy.

Positive psychotherapy is a psychodynamic method of psychotherapy founded by Dr. Nossrat Peseschkian in the early 1970s in Germany. It is based on a humanistic conception of man, and has an integral and holistic approach.

Though there are no definitive studies proving that all five of these goals are consistently realized, psychotherapy in one form or other is a component of nearly all of both in-patient and community based psychiatric treatment programs.

feng shui

Feng Shui is the Chinese art or practice of positioning (arranging) objects, especially graves, buildings, and furniture, based on a belief in patterns of yin and yang and the flow of chi that have positive and negative effects. It creates harmony and balance within an environment.

This ancient practice Feng shui is based on the Chinese concept of yin and yang. According to Daoism, everything that exists contains qi (chi), the energy or life force. This qi possesses two properties, yin (receptive) and yang (active) they are opposites and cannot exist without the other. Within the qi, eight constituents compose the universe (the Lake, the Mountain, Fire, Water, Heaven, Thunder, Wind, and Earth). Each trigram, or combination of three yin/yang elements, represents a particular quality and pattern of energy. In turn, the proper arrangement of these energetic qualities would affect not only the qi of the environment, but that of the individual within the environment as well. With feng shui, the goal is to bring both into harmony so as to foster prosperity, health, and well-being with the Wind (feng) dispersing the qi throughout the universe and Water (shui).

The eight trigrams in Feng Shui :
• Heaven – The Creative principle which contains the potential for all of manifestation.
• Earth – The Receptive principle which contains the potential for physical manifestation.
• Fire – The Clinging principle which contains the potential for achievement, clarity, and vitality.
• Water – The Abysmal principle which contains the potential for adaptability, mystery, and danger.
• Thunder – The Arousing principle which contains the initial impulse for all new things.
• Lake – The Joyous principle which embodies rewards and endings.
• Mountain – The Stillness principle which contains the potential for serenity and internal power.
• Wind – The Penetrating principle which contains the power to achieve without effort.
The practical use of the five elements is based on the fact that it can be employed within the household in order to stabilize, increase or decrease the Qi energies of the different elements.

The 5 Elements are:
• Water – This is the quiet, cool, condensed energy of winter. It represents pure potential, such as the life force in a seed.
• Wood – This is the awakening, active energy of spring. It represents growth, such as a sapling.
• Fire – This is the hot, vibrant energy of summer. It represents achievement and clarity, such as a fruit.
• Earth – This is the settled, mature energy of harvest time. It represents the community partaking of the bounty of nature.
• Metal – This is the condensing, hardening energy of fall. It represents a return to beginnings and an ordering of nature’s components.

Guidelines in Feng Shui

• When you are sitting at a desk, the entrance door should be in a clear line of sight, and you should have a view of as much of the room as possible.
• When lying in bed, the entrance door should not be directly facing the soles of one’s feet.
• Straight lines and sharp corners are to be avoided, and especially should not point where people tend to sit, stand, or sleep.
• Avoid clutter.
• Keep tops of tables simple. Avoid overdecorating tables with objects and clutter. Those objects represent piles of stress and bad luck you could/will be carrying. You should be able to sit at a table and have an open view in front of you.
• Your stairs should never face the front door.
• Some objects are believed to have the power of redirecting, reflecting, or shifting energy in a space. These include mirrors, crystals, windchimes, and pools of flowing or standing water.

• Roads to and from ancient towns were often curved and windy, an attempt to disorient and keep away evil spirits, who were believed to travel in straight lines.
• Avoid building houses in front of cemeteries, hospitals, and mortuaries.
• The most auspicious spaces for homes are lots located in streets shaped like a horseshoe.
• In choosing homes in rural areas, with hills and mountains, pick the one that is on a sloping hill.
• In choosing homes in urban area, its best to go for the ones that are on a flat terrain.
• Square-shaped lots are optimal for chi flow.

Ear candling : thermal auricular therapy

Ear Candling/ Ear Coning/ Thermal-Auricular Therapy is a kind of folk medicine practice intended to assist the natural clearing of earwax (cerumen) and “toxins” from a person’s ear by means of a hollow candle placed in the ear. In this one end of the hollow candle is lit and placed the other end of candle in the ear canal.

It is believed that Ear candling stimulates the peripheral lymph system, and work on the acupressure points as well as energy system around the ear. The radiation from the flame heats the air around the client directing “ki energy” to the ear from the fire.

Legal status

In Europe, some ear candles are regulated as medical devices, tested for safety and bear the CE mark (93/42/EEC). The CE mark is mostly self-issued by the manufacturer, supposedly assuring conformance to a standard.

Holistic Dentistry

Holistic dentistry (biologic dentistry), is an alternative holistic approach that uses non-toxic restorative materials for dental work.

Traditional dentistry considers only the areas above the neck where as, holistic dentistry looks at the patient as a whole system and how the mouth relates to the rest of the body. mercury (amalgam) fillings have the harmful effects when placed as an implant in the body.

Dentist Weston A. Price, a former director of research for the American Dental Association, conducted research that involved implanting teeth from the root canals of individuals with symptoms of severe heart problems and kidney disease under the skin of healthy rabbits One of the article published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, Price claimed that, the degenerative diseases as heart troubles, kidney and bladder disorders, arthritis, rheumatism, mental illness, lung problems, and several kinds of bacterial infections arise from root canal therapy, or endodontics.

In Holistic dentistry Most holistic dentists emphasize wellness and preventive care while avoiding silver-mercury fillings. A holistic dentist uses physiologic and electronic methods to locate areas of chronic disease that are difficult to locate by current standard methods. The benefits of holistic dentistry are said to be the result of its incorporation of hypnosis, homeopathy, aromatherapy, nutrition, and herbology.
