Holistic Counseling at Whole Wellness

At Whole Wellness Counseling, we believe that brain and body are integrally connected. Mental wellness and physical wellness intertwine, allowing you to become your favorite self. Holistic counseling helps you identify and modify aspects of your life that may be affecting your well-being.

At Whole Wellness Counseling, we understand the vital role that nutrition plays in your physical and mental health. Your body needs a regular supply of nutrients to produce energy, heal, and keep your immune system, heart, brain, and organs working. Your mind also needs certain nutrients to produce the neurotransmitters that support your mental health. The Whole Wellness Counseling team includes nutrition experts who can help you design a meal plan that supports your physical and mental health. When you visit Whole Wellness Counseling for nutritional coaching, the team integrates clinical and practical approaches to meet your nutritional needs and improve your sense of well-being.

In addition to nutrition and mental health services, Whole Wellness Counseling also offers parent coaching and positive music coaching. If you find yourself frequently arguing with your child's other caregivers and struggling to find common ground, our collaborative co-parenting coaching can help improve communication and relationships. For musicians and parents of musicians, our positive music coaching program is designed to reignite your passion for music and improve your relationship with your instrument. At Whole Wellness Counseling, we are committed to providing comprehensive care that enhances your holistic health. Schedule an appointment today to discover the importance of holistic wellness.

 

Holistic Counseling Q&A

What is Holistic Care? 

Holistic care is often called whole-person or mind-body care. Your overall health is determined by your physical, mental, emotional, behavioral, social, and spiritual well-being. Each area has a direct impact on the others. It can be difficult to maintain your physical or mental health if your provider merely treats your symptoms without addressing the root cause. Holistic counselors focus on diagnosing and treating mental health disorders, while also targeting other areas of your life affecting your thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. In addition to addressing the mind-body connection, holistic coaching can also help improve interpersonal skills, helping you to work through work-related problems, compassion fatigue, and other social and relational conflicts.

Holistic counselors offer support that complements clinical mental health therapy. For example, your holistic coach may recommend: 

  • Nutrition Coaching: The foods you eat have a profound impact on your physical and mental health. Your body needs a regular supply of nutrients to produce energy, heal, and keep your immune system, heart, brain, and organs working. Your mind also needs certain nutrients to produce the neurotransmitters that support your mental health. The Whole Wellness Counseling team includes nutrition experts who can help you design a meal plan that supports your physical and mental health. When you visit Whole Wellness Counseling for nutritional coaching, the team integrates clinical and practical approaches to meet your nutritional needs and improve your sense of well-being.  
  • Parent Coaching: You might benefit from collaborative co-parenting coaching if you and your child’s other caregivers frequently argue about parenting styles and never seem to be on the same page. Learn how to identify and reduce resist and refuse dynamics to reduce the harm of parent alienation and improve both parent-child relationships and your child’s resilience. Co-parenting is a journey whether caregivers live together or apart. The team can help improve communication, acceptance, and negotiations between caregivers to break negative and ineffective cycles.
  • Positive Music Coaching: Positive Music Coaching is a unique addition to services at Whole Wellness Counseling. Are you or your children struggling with their instrument? Has your passion for music dimmed? Positive Music Coaching is for musicians and parents of musicians who want to improve their relationship with their instrument and practice routines.  

In addition to licensed mental health professionals, the staff at Whole Wellness Counseling in Ithaca, New York and Orchard Park, New York includes certified health, wellness, athletic, and music coaches who are excited to share their passions and skills in providing comprehensive care that enhances your holistic health.
