Dr Clive Selwyn

Why Seek a Holistic Counsellor?

Sometimes life just gets us down. Some mornings we wake up on the wrong side of the bed and just feel rubbish. Sometimes there’s a perfectly understandable reason for this, like a recent break up, or being stuck in a dead-end job that we hate, but sometimes there isn’t. We feel depressed, demotivated, apathetic, unable to enjoy life – and we don’t know why. Our lives seem to lack meaning; we feel empty, stuck, without any sense at all of anything moving forward. We ask ourselves, “What’s the point?”

Ask yourself the following questions:

  • Do I keep repeating the same patterns in relationships?
  • Do I feel like i’m sometimes not enough or too much?

  • Do I cling on to some future idea of happiness?
  • Do I constantly compare myself with others?
  • Do I pretend to be okay all the time?
  • Do I show my feminine side?
  • Am I connected to my inner masculine and feminine?
  • Do I experience feelings of guilt and shame?
  • Do I distract myself with work / drugs / food / sex / porn?
  • Do I look after myself properly – body / mind / soul?
  • Do I feel isolated and alone?
  • Am I willing to admit that I need help?
  • Am I willing to work hard to make a change in my life?
  •  

    If you’ve answered, yes, to the last 2 questions, then perhaps you’re ready to challenge some of your beliefs about yourself – to take a good look at yourself with fresh eyes.

    Firstly, you’re definitely NOT alone. In fact, counselling gives us the ability to look at all these things, and realise that the ways in which many of us suffer are not unique to us at all. 

    By getting to know ourselves better, we gain an understanding about why we are the way we are, and why we do the things we do. Once we have this knowledge, we can start the process of learning to fully accept ourselves as we are – maybe even to start to love ourselves. 

    Seeking help from someone is the first step in this process – and it takes a lot of COURAGE! 

    You’ve already found yourself here – so perhaps you’ll take one more courageous step and send me a message…·

    I love crazy wisdom. I draw on the teachings of Osho, Sufi mysticism, Tantra, Zen & Taoist philosophy, as well as Jungian psychology. Jung said that integration of the shadow was the “apprentice-piece” and integration of the anima / animus was the “master-piece” of becoming whole. 

    Therefore, I offer both pieces of this work as part of my counselling, in the hope that I can help people to become more mature, integrated human beings.

    My Experience

    I have spent more than 10 years training with some of the best teachers and facilitators in the fields of personal growth, Tantra and coaching.

    I have been doing men’s work for the last three years – including running sharing circles, and counselling sessions. I have been co-facilitating mixed sharing groups and counselling women for the last year.

    "This is something Clive is gifted at doing. I've always got a lot from our sessions. His insights have been really valuable... the way he can see the root of what I'm dealing with, and hold the space that feels safe for me to share in. This has allowed me to see the truths about who I am and what I want in my life.

    I would highly recommend Clive's sessions to anyone."

    "I've known Dr Clive for around 10 years and have had several coaching sessions with him regarding relationships and intimacy. Clive is always extremely attentive and I feel heard by him at all times. 

    Our sessions together really helped me rethink my situation and gave me more confidence to solve my issues on my own."

    "Clive gave me an insight into yet another area of my life where I have overlooked compulsive behaviour, and I came away with a great exercise to reclaim myself in that area.

    I recommend getting Clive to help you to accelerate your progress on your own path of self-development."

    "Utilising his knowledge and personal experience in the sessions we had together, Clive helped me to see some of my patterns - the ways that I approach my life, my relationships, and my soul's purpose.

    I highly recommend to anyone to take a few hours out of your life and chat about things with a coach like Clive. It will improve your life."
