Health & Life Coaching - Counseling

A-Z PHYSIO HEALTH offers this innovative programme in order to holistically approach the problems that our clients present with in our clinic. 

Health coaching is becoming recognized as a new way to help individuals "manage" their illnesses and conditions, especially those of a chronic nature. The coach will use special techniques, personal experience, expertise and encouragement to assist the coachee in bringing his/her behavioural changes about.

In chronic conditions and illnesses and especially when it comes to pain, it is also very important to understand the inter-connection between the physical pain and the psychological pain. If for simplistic purposes, we are able to visualize three different planes (see below) that make up who we are, then we come one step closer to empowering ourselves to never be afraid of pain again - whether it be physical or psychological.

      


  • The physical plane (this involves all the physiological mechanisms that happen both inside and outside the body – central nervous system, sympathetic nervous system, musculoskeletal system, respiratory and circulatory system, digestive system).
  • The mental plane (this involves how one processes, analyzes, handles and deals with what is happening to oneself. It mostly adheres to logic and reason).
  • The spiritual plane (this focuses on the aspects of the psyche and the importance of balance and harmony of the soul).
In order to understand pain, it is of primary importance that one can understand the relationship of body, mind and spirit and how often recurring injuries or even ‘new’ injuries (which sometimes are just very good hidden ones) are only a projection or an extension of another underlying problem may it be chronic stress, poor health, bad life style and long term depression. The Cognitive therapy approach enables a person to strengthen oneself and become empowered by allowing the person to understand all the mechanisms that have been going within the self and take action using logic, reason and free will.  It is a pioneering thought in so far as it sets to break free from the standard doctor and patient barrier, using only a counsellor to guide the person towards the path of self-healing and self-contentment.  
Life coaching is a practice that helps people identify and achieve personal goals. Life coaches assist clients by using a variety of tools and techniques drawing inspiration from disciplines such as sociology, psychology, positive adult development and career counselling.

This programme will be facilitated by Ileana Nicholson B.A. Philosophy & M.A. Performance Design and Practice.

 *Ileana Nicholson  has also given various lectures on philosophy, critical thinking and creative writing.
