Unit Three – Certificate in Holistic Therapies for PTSD
Grief and Loss counselling becomes necessary when a person is so disabled by their grief; and, so overwhelmed by their loss, that their normal coping processes are disabled or shut down.
People may require Grief and Loss Counselling after the death of a loved one, after a long term relationship ends or even after losing their job. All people experience grief and loss differently. Grief counselling facilitates expression of emotion and thought about the loss, including their feeling sad, anxious, angry, lonely, guilty, relieved, isolated, confused, or numb.
It includes thinking creatively about the challenges that follow loss and coping with concurrent changes in their lives. Often people feel disorganized, tired, have trouble concentrating, sleep poorly and have vivid dreams. They may experience change in appetite or in their own health.
Grief counselling may be called upon when a person suffers anticipatory grief, for example an intrusive and frequent worry about a loved one whose death is not imminent. Anticipatory mourning also occurs when a loved one has a terminal illness. This can handicap that person’s ability to stay present whilst simultaneously holding onto, letting go of, and drawing closer to the dying person.
Holistic Grief and Loss Counsellors are able to provide clients with coping skills, emotional support and resources (and sometimes referrals) to help support them through the normal grieving process and also through what is known as ‘complicated grief’ (which occurs when the client gets stuck in, or does not progress through, the natural stages of grief on their own.

Unit Four – Certificate in Inner-Child Work
So many, if not all, emotional issues and mental health problems can be traced back to childhood trauma. Inner child work is a way of effectively identifying and resolving childhood trauma. It is focused on the experiences, emotions and unconscious beliefs still being held onto by the adult as a result of childhood experiences. It helps to develop a sense of safety as well as connecting us to the joy, innocence, playfulness, openness and confidence of childhood.

Why do I have to study Meditation to become a Holistic Therapist and Holistic Counsellor?
Holistic Therapy and 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 the greater whole.
Holistic Therapists and Holistic Counsellors regard the mind, body and spirit as fundamentally interconnected.
Holistic Therapy and Holistic counselling is aimed at empowering a client to discover and access their own inner wisdom and healing capacity by providing support, guidance and resources like positive life skills, Meditation therapy, stress management skills, self-acceptance and communication skills,
which are developed through a range of activities and exercises.
The Holistic Therapist and Holistic Counsellor does not seek to analyse, categorize, judge or label their clients but endeavor’s to provide information that facilitates a client’s personal journey toward self-discovery and ultimately having the confidence, clarity, wisdom and resources to solve problems, overcome issues and achieve goals for themselves.
This is a human-centred therapy, where the therapist or counsellor becomes a support partner and resource provider rather than an authority on what is and what is not healthy, with the intention of assisting the client to reach their own life and health goals (which can be extremely diverse), in a safe and respectful environment.
Why do I need to study Meditation to become a qualified Holistic Therapist and Holistic Counsellor with the Life Balancing College and their courses?
The brain and the body’s response to stress can be paralyzing! When our clients are suffering from stress (which they usually will be) there is little anyone can do to assist them in finding better health, peace and happiness, until the stress and the effects of the stress on their physical and mental health has been addressed.
There are many wonderful therapies available that can truly bring about miraculous healing but while the client remains unable to manage the stress in their lives any healing will quickly be undone and illness will reappear.
When people learn how to connect with that part of themselves that is peaceful, calm and in control, they can reduce the effects of stress and trauma. When the mind is calm and peaceful, the body’s own (very powerful) healing ability is activated.
Meditation is scientifically proven to be the fastest and most effective way to reduce stress and to increase an individual’s capacity to manage stress. Over the past decade, many studies have shown how the regular practice of Meditation changes the chemical environment in the body and can repair damaged cells, reduce high blood pressure and much more.
Through the Mind Body Education training course at Life Balancing College, students will learn how to select the correct Meditation styles for their client’s individual learning style. They will also develop teaching skills and come to understand Meditation for the powerful, natural healing therapy it has long been known for and has now been clinically proven to be.
