Life is a Gift! ... Live it! ... Enjoy it! ... Celebrate it! ... Fulfill it!
As you obviously noticed from the heading my name is Elmarie Swartz and I practice as a holistic facilitator, life coach/counselor, BodyTalk Access Practitioner and Master/teacher in the Holistic Energy Healing Arts.
My mission is to serve people in healing, personal development, teaching and joyful living.
I draw from a variety of healing modalities, based on the specific requirements of each and every individual client.
Healing your life begins here... a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step... healing is a journey... the destination is yourself.
Healing Sessions - Rather than calling myself a practitioner, counselor, coach or therapist I prefer the term "holistic facilitator".
I use the word "holistic" (which has the same roots as "whole" and "holy") because of the realization that mind, body and spirit cannot be separated when dealing with issues of well-being, development and potential. I also like the term "facilitator" (from the Latin "facilis" meaning easy/ ready/ good natured/ courteous) better than e.g. "therapist", because it de-emphasizes the importance and prominence of the practitioner, giving the client the deserved credit for the positive changes they make.
I am not the one doing the real work - I'm just guiding and easing clients through their own natural processes.
I use methods from many therapeutic and healing traditions (some are listed in my biography), which all have their advantages and disadvantages. I therefore don't subscribe to any one system as "the perfect" model, simply using whatever works best for each individual in their particular situation.
My respect for the uniqueness of every client alone demands that this kind of work is driven by people rather then by techniques.
While we can face most of our challenges alone, a little help can make a big difference. Through a variety of techniques and gentle interventions I can help you to release limiting beliefs about yourself or the world and transform unhelpful mental, emotional and behavioral patterns that might restrict your development. We will uncover and identify your conscious and unconscious abilities (e.g. through D.E.E.P Therapy), allowing you to become more of who you really are.
One of my strengths is the variety of my approaches. However, not all of them are necessarily relevant to you. Before we begin any work, I therefore take great care to establish what your expectations and requirements are, so that we're both clear about how to proceed.
Please note that if you suffer from any medical condition (physical or mental), you have to see a medical doctor or clinical psychologist first.
Nobody can "make you better", all anyone can do is help create a state where you can improve yourself. Equally, while I've "been around" quite a while and been exposed to many teachings, I don't have all the answers; but I can help you find your own.
Take my hand and soar! Become who you are - LOVE!
Counseling - As a method of dealing with overwhelming emotions and obsessive thoughts, counseling is not about changing the situation (which often is impossible) but your response to it. Because I am not involved in the situation, I can support you by reflecting it back to you from a different perspective, facilitating new insights and understandings without the need to fix you.
The Energy Exchange for the healing sessions are R150.00 per 30 minutes. This means that you decide - depending on your situation - how much you can give. A session can last from 30 minutes to one and a half hours, depending on the work and what you ask for. You should be prepared to come to three sessions, although a one and a half hour session will often turn out to be enough for the moment. I do not normally see clients for more than five consecutive sessions, after which you, the client, decide on your further needs.
Teaching, Workshops and Counseling - Contact me- As a "holistic master/teacher" which is a "facilitator of learning" I concentrates on:
Holistic education is based on a concept of knowledge as a process of reasoning and of continuous learning, in other words it's infinite.
The courses listed below were created by me drawing from all my experience in the lecture hall as well as my one on one sessions.
Each if these courses designed to take the learner to a new level of consciousness while teaching the fine art of energy healing. Having completed the course you will be certificated as well as be qualified in your chosen subject.
With these new found skills you will be better able to work on your own life to improve whatever it is that may be ailing you as well as to offer your services to others.
I am based in South Africa on the eastern seaboard in the province of Kwa-Zulu Natal in a little town called Hibberdene, enjoying not only the benefits of an exquisite sub-tropical climate but also the tremendous energies of the ocean, the mountains and the vast open spaces of nature unspoiled marveling at the abundance of our world.
