The holistic psychologist

What distinguishes the holistic psychologist or spiritual psychologist from the regular psychologist? With what questions can I contact them? I will tell you more about it in this blog.

I would like to start by putting a little disclaimer when it comes to putting labels on things. I do not like to pigeonhole or label things or people. If this article does express that in any way, it is intended to clarify the concept of a holistic psychologist.

Holistic, spiritual or regular psychologist?

Although I myself graduated as a regular psychologist, I now use the terms holistic and spiritual psychologist to indicate my way of working. In fact, there are some differences between the two.

The first is that a regular psychologist graduates as a psychologist and this provides a protected title (drs). Holistic and spiritual psychologist, on the other hand, are not protected titles, but there are studies where you can get a certificate upon completion.

Despite my regular psychology training, I consider myself more of a holistic psychologist.

In my view, this goes a step further and as the word holistic says, it looks at the human being more as a whole. It looks at the mental, physical, emotional and spiritual body and the relationships between them.

While I certainly learned useful things during regular psychology training as well, there were some things I missed there. There was no discussion of the soul, energetic work or the effect of ancestral trauma on our current lives. This is seen within mainstream psychology as inexplicable and there is no "scientific" basis for it.

Science has no scientific basis (yet) for people's many spiritual experiences

During one of the philosophy courses I was taking at the time, a point of discussion was introduced. This one was about there being a "problem" within psychology.

Psychologists indicated that more and more people were coming to them with questions or fears surrounding their "intense spiritual experiences," to which then the psychologist has no answer.

That was also the point of discussion I brought up in college at the time: if apparently there are more and more people having spiritual experiences, then surely that can be seen as something that is "real"? Because apparently people are experiencing it. Isn't it time for us to delve into it and open up to this world? How else is it possible for these people to get help and guidance?

What does my work as a holistic psychologist look like?

My way of working involves going to the core of problems, fears, pain or beliefs. In doing so, I go beyond just this current life and definitely include the ancestral trauma's .

Having worked with various people for a number of years now, it has become clear to me time and again that most "problems", fears or certain themes stem from the family lineage.

By acknowledging this and releasing yourself from it (and thus the family line), openness and clarity take its place and the energy starts to flow again.

Besides that, my work is also energetic. I work directly from my own soul-essence and I help others to come into contact with their own soul-essence as well. Because of the collaboration that arises between my client and myself, wonderful things happen.

I often work with a combination of conversation, guided meditation and energetic work. Clear insights come through to the other person (those 'aha' moments), blockages are released and a breakthrough is made on pieces that they sometimes struggled with for years. This because we go in depth, to the core of things.

I also focus on the potential of my client. I don't see the other person as someone who "knows less", and I don't see myself as the one who has all the answers.

My mission is to empower the other. That is why I guide someone intuitively during the sessions, so that they get their own insights. I help them get back in touch with their power, wisdom and intuition themselves, so that after a few sessions they no longer 'need' me.

Often there is a wall between how a person is currently experiencing life and a person's true potential. Together we look at what is blocking that potential and transform these blockages.

Is a holistic psychologist suitable for me?

What does your gut tell you? Often you feel what you need at this moment, even though you still might feel a bit fear about it. If you are willing to take responsibility for everything you encounter in yourself and to apply change (sometimes these are just small things), then it is suitable for you.

You are expected to actively contribute to the process and to be willing to confront yourself (in a loving way). You will also be asked to make contact with your feelings and emotions (of course you will be guided in this).

If you dare to take that on, you will find that you can make a major breakthrough and begin to experience life more from your soul essence, inner peace and inspiration.

A holistic psychologist can be helpful for those seeking a deeper, more integrative approach to psychological care.

Whether you struggle with emotional problems, fears, relationship problems, unexplained physical complaints, stress, or you want to further develop yourself internally and spiritually, a holistic psychologist can help you with this inner process so that you can experience lasting change.

How can I help you?

You can book online sessions with me or visit me on location in Sweden (for example in combination with a private retreat). Online sessions are very nice because you can relax at home on the couch or in bed and don't have to drive a car after the time.

Especially since so much is happening energetically, this can be nice. We do the session via video call, and the energetic part works just as powerfully as a live session.

For those who live in Sweden, they can of course just come by for an on-site session. For those who are interested in coming by in Sweden: you are welcome!

If you come to do a private retreat with me, you can spend a few days relaxing in the magical Swedish nature, while we do various in-depth and creative sessions here on location. Feel free to contact me for more information!
