Holistic psychology is an approach to healing that involves treating the client as a whole person--mind, body, and "generator" (or, soul). All three need to be addressed for optimal health. Emotional health impacts physical health and physical health impacts emotional health. For example, when we feel stress, our bodies releases cortisol, which accelerates the aging process. Or if someone is dealing with cancer, that person may feel depressed. Unfortunately, not enough attention gets paid to these truths in regular medicine. Moreover, many people are frustrated to find their physician only allowing them a few minutes of his/her time. In such a situation, they often feel like a "number" or a mere collection of body parts. But, we are really whole, connected beings and deserve to be treated as such!
Through time-tested techniques such as feelings management and mindfulness, holistic psychology enables persons to take responsibility for making new choices that can help them to grow and improve the quality of their lives, thereby finding meaning and the potential to live their life's purpose!
