The therapeutic toolbox I have been developing for several years contains numerous techniques. One of them is individual advising or holistic accompaniment.
During my accompaniment sessions as a holistic therapist, I work with a comprehensive and integrative approach, taking into account all aspects of a person's life: physical, intellectual, emotional, and spiritual. I always approach the sessions with openness, benevolence, non-judgment, and a sincere desire to promote well-being and help the person achieve lasting improvement.
I strive to help my clients better understand their bodies, emotions, thoughts, and environment. My approaches are diverse, and I may utilize methods such as meditation, visualization, healthy eating, stress and emotion management, and more.
In essence, the goal of holistic accompaniment is to assist individuals in finding overall balance in their lives, gaining perspective on their experiences, and moving towards a better quality of life every day. The work is done on different levels of the individual, emphasizing harmony and coherence as a whole.
Here is the presentation of the main field during my individualized sessions:
Naturopathy, defined by the WHO (World Health Organization) as "[...] a set of healthcare methods aimed at strengthening the body's natural defenses using natural and biological means", is a traditional medicine, similar to Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and Ayurveda. It aims to restore individuals to stable and sustainable health using exclusively natural means such as nutrition, physical activity, and psycho-emotional balance. These three elements are known as "The 3 Techniques" and are part of a total of ten techniques that naturopathy emphasizes. The other seven techniques that a naturopathic practitioner can implement include hydrotherapy (hot and cold water, contrast showers, derivational baths, thalassotherapy, etc.), phytotherapy and its various branches (knowledge of medicinal plants and their effects, gemmotherapy, aromatherapy, Bach Flower Remedies, etc.), manual techniques (massages, osteopathy, etc.), reflex techniques (acupressure, foot/facial/palm reflexology, etc.), vibrational techniques (chromotherapy, light therapy, heliotherapy, etc.), respiratory techniques (heart coherence, 4-7-8 breathing etc.), and energy techniques (magnetism, vital energy harmonization, Sound Healing, magnets, lithotherapy, etc.).
During an individualized naturopathic consultation, we briefly summarize your overall condition (a questionnaire will be filled out by you in advance) considering any past and/or current health issues, so that I can provide you with the best advice using techniques from the list above.
As naturopathy primarily focuses on prevention, any urgent cases should be treated by a medical doctor. Furthermore, I cannot replace the opinion of a medical doctor in any way.
What I DO NOT do during my accompaniments:
Provide medical diagnoses or replace a healthcare professional.
Promise the person results or miracle solutions.
Enforce certain practices upon the individual.
I am an active listener and do not decide what the person should or should not do.
Interfere in personal or professional relationships of an individual.
Judge or criticize a person's lifestyle choices or beliefs.
Fail to adhere to the professional code of ethics.
Violate the confidentiality of the information exchanged with the client.
