“Where your holistic health is our priority.”

Rachem Wellness Services

‘Holistic’ has a twofold meaning pertaining to it here at Rachem Wellness.

Firstly, our beings are made up of body, mind and soul. To only focus on the condition of one of these elements, we neglect the others.
Because these three entities are supposed to be in synergy for optimal wellbeing, it has to be assessed and addressed that way.

Secondly, ‘holistic’ also refers to the type of approach and outlook we have on the management of sickness and disease. We take an in-depth look and consider many options to be part of the management plan. This is where a collaborative approach between different healthcare providers can be valuable.

Lifestyle factors (movement, nutrition, sleep, stress management, environmental toxins and exposures, spiritual wellbeing), medication, vitamins, other supplements and hormones are all very useful considerations.

Individual psychotherapy

Individual psychotherapy is a joint process through which patients work one-on-one with a therapist to explore their feelings, conflicts, everyday difficulties, beliefs and behaviours.  This is done in a safe, caring, non-judgemental and confidential environment.  The therapeutic relationship forms the basis for exploration and transformation.

Issues that may be addressed in therapy include, but are not limited to: adjustment to life changes and challenges, stress, depression, anxiety, trauma, anger, addiction, abuse, sexuality, relationship or marriage challenges and family issues.

Therapy can also be helpful those who simply feel overwhelmed, lost, struggling to find their way, who desire a better understanding of themselves and strive to make positive lifestyle changes.

Adolescent therapy

Adolescence is a unique and challenging developmental phase and adolescents face many transitions. This can be both challenging and exciting.  Issues of self-identity, independence and decision-making play a major role in healthy development. Many teenagers may need help dealing with school stress, relationships, anxiety, depression, trauma and family problems.  In therapy, an opportunity is given to work through these issues, explore different possibilities and make better choices in their lives.

Couples therapy

Couples therapy helps couples of all types to gain insight into their relationship, to better understand each other’s needs, recognize and resolve conflicts and enhance their relationship and connection with each other.

Counselling can also help couples who plan to get married achieve a deeper understanding of each other and iron out differences before marriage.
