Bec Norton Holistic Health & Professional Counsellor
Bec Norton has been practicing and helping her clients with holistic health and natural therapies since 2002 with a Masters in Professional Counselling. Her knowledge and information comes from many years of research and study into how we can all create a healthier life for ourselves just by allowing ourselves to heal naturally.
All the natural therapies that Bec provides have been a major part of her own life journey through overcoming many rollercoaster rides while raising her family as a single Mum and determined to maintain an emotionally and physically healthy lifestyle.
Natural therapies that have been around for centuries are becoming more and more accepted in Australia because we are searching for more natural ways to treat our emotional, mental and physical wellbeing. We are well on our way to becoming a nation of medication addiction and dependency with one in five Australians aged 16-85 experience a mental illness in any year and an increase in ages 12-15 years. The most common mental illnesses are depression, anxiety and substance use disorder which are often treated with anti-depressants and or other forms of medication. A good natural therapy practitioner will have the experience and knowledge to recognise clients who will benefit from the natural treatments and those who require assistance from Psychiatric care. They will have an understanding of what therapies work with specific conditions and medications to help the client achieve emotional and physical harmony. The Holistic Health Practitioner will have the ability to very quickly recognise why the patient is suffering and start to work through sometimes multiple emotional issues that have often been hidden away since childhood. Untreated childhood mental illness, grief, trauma, neglect and isolation are some of the main causes of adult emotional and mental illness that at some stage erupts. Breakdowns, addictions, divorce, domestic violence, loneliness, poverty, homelessness and suicide are some of what untreated childhood emotions can cause and often the patient won’t see the connection until they start treatments.
Many Medical Practitioners are now recognising the benefits of natural therapies and encouraging alternative natural therapies before administering medication when possible. Working with Counsellors and Holistic Health Practitioners to achieve the best care for their patients, easing the strain on the mental health system and patients not being correctly monitored.
