Holistic counseling goes beyond the traditional form of psychology. Dr. Westrope, holistic counselor and PhD, says holistic counseling "does not require labeling, psychoanalyzing, or prescribing medicine." It can, however, be "used as an adjunct to clinical psychology." This form of therapy can speed up the healing process and provide deep emotional release safely and efficiently. It aims to heal patients on all levels, emotionally, mentally and spiritually.

Holistic counselors use a variety of therapies to bring their patients back to wellness. There are several different forms of counseling such as psychotherapy, art therapy, music therapy, sex therapy, life coaching and Gestalt therapy. Other methods may include nutritional counseling, massage, spiritual guidance, Reiki and hypnosis.

Many holistic counselors are certified in multiple modes of healing, which can add to tuition costs and take more time to complete. These additional certifications are not necessary for a practice, however they may attract a larger client base and provide more income. Unlike traditional forms of psychotherapy, holistic counselors usually do not need a license to practice.
