Psychotherapy involves what is known and what may not be known in personal functioning, usually referred to as “conscious and unconscious factors”.

Through a holistic perspective, psychotherapy encompasses the mental, emotional, behavioural, relational, existential and spiritual health of a human being.

A psychotherapist engages with a person or group in a co-created process of deep listening and empathic exploration of experience.  Together they may explore social factors that shape an individual’s life experience, behaviours, and values that shape their understanding of who they are in relation to others, and how they create meaning.

Aspects of problem solving are integrated into an affective approach that involves deep structural adjustment of the psyche and encompasses the context of the whole person.

As well as talking, the client can choose from many approaches, including group interaction, art, music, dance, body work, drama, sand play, movement and energy work, and soul work.

Psychotherapy may be short or long term depending on many factors including the modality of psychotherapy, education and experience of the practitioner, level of the clients physiological and psychological disturbance, client choice and the willingness of the client to engage in the process of change.

 

PROGRAMS

We have programs that focus on pain relief, injury recovery, stress relief, enhancing fitness, addressing anxiety and anti-aging.

At our Health Chat you can discuss which of our programs best fits your need.

We recommend you complete the whole of one of our programs to achieve the optimal outcome. These therapies work best and elicit greater change on the body’s physiology when done in a consistent and methodical way.

To really achieve a difference in your health, you will need to commit to 2-3 sessions per week.

We realise that each of our programs involves a significant financial commitment. While we encourage people to book all of their sessions and pay for the program up front, we do accept sessional payments. For details of the cost of our programs click here.

While insurance companies all support the concept of wellness and wellbeing, they have a limited number of therapies that they will cover to achieve this: acupuncture and remedial massage are the only aspects of the programs that are covered.

If you decide to do one of our programs you will, subject to availability, have unlimited access to the infrared sauna and PEMF that relate to your program.

These therapies include one or more of the following: PEMF (pulsed electromagnetic field therapy), far infra-red saunas and intermittent hypoxic therapy. Ring and ask to speak to our wellness consultant and she will guide you to the therapy or therapies of most benefit to you.

While we recommend people attend three sessions per week, we recognise this may not be possible for everyone. We encourage you to think seriously about what your priorities are and how you can manage your commitments prior to beginning the program. We have had some clients who have derived benefit from doing two sessions per week as this is all they are able to commit to. The gains may be slower to perceive and are different for every individual.

The best time to start the program is when you are able to make the personal commitment to yourself to complete the program and you are ready to attend to the aspects of your wellbeing that are important to you. The wellness consultants are here to support you through wellness coaching and facilitation of the therapies. Your role is to be present, aware and committed to the process.

Yes. All therapies available at WoW can be accessed individually and plans are available for the Infrared Saunas, Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy and Intermittent Hypoxic Therapy.
