How is Holistic Counselling different from Conventional Counselling?
Holistic counselling is a unique form of counselling, focused on the whole person. Using the principals of humanistic (or positive) psychology it is solution focused, rather than problem focused and considers physiological and psychological disorders to be parts of a greater whole.
Holistic Counsellors regard the mind, body and spirit as fundamentally interconnected.
Holistic counselling is aimed at empowering you to discover and access your own inner wisdom and healing capacity by providing support, guidance and resources like positive life skills, meditation, stress management skills, self acceptance and communication, which are developed through a range of activities and exercises.
The Holistic Counsellor does not seek to analyse, categorise, judge or label, but endeavours to provide information that facilitates your personal journey toward self-discovery and ultimately having the confidence, clarity, wisdom and resources to solve problems, overcome issues and achieve goals for yourselves.
This is a human centred therapy, where the counsellor become a support partner and resource provider rather than an authority on what is and what is not healthy, with the intention of assisting the you to reach your own life and health goals, which can be extremely diverse.
Holistic Counsellors do not strive to solve their clients problem for them, they endeavour to educate their clients in how to solve their own issues.

Thank you, I feel amazing, I can’t begin to let you know what you have done for me. Your kindness and gentle approach has helped me immensely. You, as a holistic therapist is greatly appreciated and certainly put me on the right path. There is a future and purpose in my life again. I feel alive and will strive to complete my life’s journey.

I was stressed, anxious, depressed and immensely unhappy with life. You showed me how to live again, for that I will never forget. You gave me the skills to cope with any situation and help me overcome my insecurities. I hope I will some day be able to help people like you. I admire your strength and your softness, something that is very special in a person. Amy T. XX
Our lives are changing daily, and with the environment, emotional, physical and social stress placed on us today is making our society angry, sad, depressed, unhappy and fearful just to mention a few. I decided I could go down this road or get help before I started to fall. I believe I was happy but my time with Stacey has taught me that I can be happier, more confident, less stressed, more relaxed, able to say no and have 'me time’, because I am important, I matter! Just by walking into Stacey's little place of peace, she immediately helps you relax and feel important and worthwhile. She makes you realise there are steps you can take to over come any insecurities, fears or anxieties you may have. Listening to Stacey’s recorded visualisations is so relaxing and empowering. Her voice is soft and soothing. Stacey helps you to see its up to us to decide how you want to feel each day and how to go about achieving that. I highly recommend Stacey to anyone looking for a better and happier life. That's probably most of us to be honest. Thanks Stacey for caring and for taking this journey in your life, to help us all.

My experience I’m a 59 year old male and knew I needed to change my life style. After researching the many different options & therapies to a healthier life I decided to go down the Holistic path and made an appointment with Stacey at Primal Mind and Body not having a clue how it would work. Now after 4 x 1.5hr sessions I believe I did myself a favour. Hypnotherapy works really well for me enforcing the will power to achieve what I wanted. Apart from the power of the mind it is about what I was putting into my body, often thinking I was doing the right thing but so far from it. Stacey has changed my diet, given me exercise options as well as introducing me to meditation from which I have taken what works for me. I’m now eating a totally different range of foods in smaller portions; regularly do stretches & exercise, as well as controlled breathing & relaxation. I have lost weight and already almost at where I want to be. I move much freer have more energy and sleep better. Stacey has given me the knowledge or tools to change what I was doing and I have modified these to suit me and with the reinforcement of hypnotherapy I’m a much healthier person. Thank you Stacey Greg
My son was getting very anxious before his footy games and with less than 2 weeks to go until running at Regional Athletics and playing his footy Grand Final, we thought we needed to source some help. Primal Mind and Body was definitely that! With Staceys calming instructions and guidelines, my son breezed through both events with fantastic results on both days. He got to enjoy the days other than letting his anxiety take over. Can't thank you enough Stacey. GRATEFUL XX
Thank you Primal Mind and Body for giving me a new lease on life. I was down in the dumps with my weight and I felt terrible. My life was at a stand still until I took Stacey's Health and Wellness classes. I loved the combination of Holistic Therapy and Hypnosis along with a Healthy Eating Program. I have lost weight and feel fantastic. I have a new lease on life and and I am looking forward to the future. I could not have done it alone. Thank you for my new direction. Bev xx
