Feeling challenged working in the health care system for over 30 years as a Registered Nurse, I ventured into the field of Health Coaching. I felt confident this was the way forward in promoting the benefits of a healthy lifestyle and helping those wanting to improve their health and make changes for the better.
It wasn’t long working in the space that I became aware of what’s known as the ‘dark hole’. The chasm between where a client is and where they want to be having reached their goals. One of the many skills of health coaching is to walk alongside the client and help them navigate crossing the chasm. However, the most concerning challenge was the realisation many clients did not know who they truly are other than being merely physical.
Whilst I was trying to figure out the best approach to meet this challenge, I encountered my own that totally shock both my professional and personal worlds like an earthquake. Little did I know that the aftershock was about to dramatically change the course of direction of my life. Questions I regularly asked clients, I was now confronted with asking myself. “How do you feel about what’s happened?” “Why is it upsetting you the way it is?” “Everyone else is ok but why aren’t I?” I asked myself these questions repeatedly.
Finally, I heard myself speak. What happened affected me the way it did was because I ignored my feelings. How I truly felt and fearful of retribution should I speak my truth. It would have been so much easier to remain in my thoughts (mind) disconnected from my feeling and attempting to rationalise the events as being ‘normal’. From the moment I gave myself permission to listen with love to my inner voice and speak my truth, my search began to find meaning in connecting with body, mind, and spirit.
To this day I am in awe how the universe operates and delivers exactly what it is you are seeking once you connect and simply ask for divine help. My search lead me instantly to Psychosomatic Therapy (PT) and the PT College (PTC) based in Tweed Heads QLD. PT was established in 1988 embodying the brilliant work of Herman Muller (dec) and carried on by his devoted wife, Marie Muller, and cofounder of the PTC as a Registered Training Organisation (RTO) since 2003.
I would liken studying the Certificate 111 Psychosomatic Therapy as an awakening of the soul and the most wonderful journey of self-discovery. Our bodies are a moving, functional history of every physical, emotional, and spiritual encounter we have ever experienced in our lives. Experiences stored and not processed, such as trauma or grief can remain trapped creating dysfunction in the body’s structure manifesting as postural misalignment, physical or mental illness, and/or disease. We are not solely physical beings. Where there is a physical ailment, there is a root cause emotional ailment and vice versa.
The future as a Psychosomatic Therapist is a glowing light in the ever-increasing demand on health care services. This exciting field of health is growing rapidly at a time when health professionals, or those wishing to explore their own health, are seeking an alternate approach. I highly recommend studying with the PTC and thank Marie, and brilliant team of teachers and mentors, for sharing their expertise in broadening my knowledge and understanding in the way we care for ourselves in body, mind, and spirit.

Self-awareness is crucial in everyone’s life in order to know what we do and how we do. We, as human beings are more complex in nature. Therefore, we must become aware of ourselves. What is self-awareness? In simple words, being self-aware is to know who we are and where we belong.
Self-awareness is beneficial in many ways. This can be done by opting for Psychomatic Therapy Courses. Psychosomatic therapy is a process between the mind and body in which we exist. There is an on-going communication between our body and mind that continues to be within us all through our life. It is mainly related to the analysis of mind (psyche) and body (soma).
By building self-awareness for yourself, you can create the most positive atmosphere for yourself. Once you understand your own needs and desires, you will be able to know the needs of those around you. This will foster a better interaction between you and other people and you can be more tolerant of everyone, thereby creating harmonious relationships.
Self-awareness helps will help you to understand your strength and cope up with your weaknesses. It will reduce stress by making you aware for what you need to work hard. When you are aware of whom you are, you are able to configure in which field you need to improve, therefore, it will develop your skills. Besides, self-awareness also motivates you as well as develops leadership skills.
There are a number of psychosomatic therapy courses which can help you to develop your personality. Psychosomatic Therapy College offers courses, such as The Art of Meditation, Secrets of Body Language, Learning to Let Go, Towards the Light, Living Soul, Energy Dynamics in Relationship, The Way of the Spiritual Warrior, and The Rites of Passage.
There are medical treatments for any ailment or disease in our body. Psychosomatic therapy analyses the relationship between the body and the mind, how the body is communicating with the soul and the body language. The body reacts with the message the mind sends it and the body-mind communication provides us a better understanding of ourselves. The body not only consists of a physical structure but is responsive to the signals and stimuli interpreted by the mind. Psychosomatic therapy exposes the language of the body and the soul. Psyché is the consciousness of the soul and soma is the body.
Internal memory stored in the body-mind effects the emotional, mental and physical condition of the body as cellular memory and outwardly through the actions and reactions. The task of the soul is to awaken the emotions of love, compassion, stimulate feelings of happiness and flow within the body to guide to a better life. The therapy is a pathway leading to a healthy and good life by focusing, understanding and structuring the body and the mind. Through this process, the mind is focused and the emotions are aroused within by bringing awareness to the areas of the body from where stress, tension and frustration is eradicated before it becomes an ailment.
The body language through the interaction of the mind and soul imparts the feelings of love, compassion, happiness and understanding that will lead to a great life. This results in self-awareness and self-improvement that directs the way we behave and communicate with other people. When we learn to be happy with the little things in life, then we will behave in a better way with the outside world too. Living your life from the inside out, assists you to be attentive and caring towards yourself, the benefits from which flow on to those around you.
Body-mind interaction is present within us but the process through which we stimulate the awareness of positive emotions and the feelings of gratitude makes us a better individual. This therapy creates big changes towards happier and more fulfilling living.
