The Heart Mind Spirit Therapies approach works on four levels:

  The first level is problem solving.  The focus is on the person’s life situation and the resources they have available.  This is what many people would call Life Coaching, or Solution-Oriented Counselling.  The tools we use are goal setting, brainstorming, creative thinking, planning and time management.  This is often all that is needed when a person has an identifiable problem to deal with.

  The second level involves Hypnotherapy and Neuro-Linguistic Therapy.  Here we begin to explore the relationship between the inner world and the outer world.  This often requires the client to delve into areas that cause discomfort, as we realise that we have to change who we are to change what we do.  This level is often effective for dealing with specific emotional or relationship issues in our lives.

  The third level is Psychotherapy, where we go beyond the immediate problem and look at the healing of deep wounds in the client’s psyche.  This requires a commitment of time as well as a deep level of honesty.  It is at this level that true transformation occurs in people’s lives.  This is often necessary for dealing with long term issues like depression.

 The fourth level is Spiritual or Transpersonal Healing, where we look beyond the individual.  This does not require any specific religious beliefs, it simply requires a willingness to acknowledge that there is more to life than meets the eye, that there may be a purpose or meaning in events that can only be understood when viewed from a larger perspective.

 There doesn't tend to be sharp distinctions between these levels.  Most people begin at level one, and we work down through the levels to the required depth, then end up back at problem solving.  Some people come straight in at level three, as their wounds have been cracked open by life events.  As each person is unique, so each person’s journey is unique.
