The Centre for Holistic Living is a specialist therapy practice on the Sunshine Coast providing counselling, energy therapy, meditation and more. We create a peaceful, safe and nurturing space to focus on healing and growth.
Holistic Living is the dynamic balance of all that nourishes, embedded in nature and humanity. We support people to live this dynamic balance in a practical way, drawing on connection with the natural environment and community, to move to health and greater potential.
We support our community from our Sunshine Coast location in beautiful Queensland Australia, as well as working internationally through phone and video sessions.
Coolum location on the Sunshine Coast
The Centre for Holistic Living is located in Yaroomba in the Coolum area on the Sunshine Coast, a couple of minutes drive from the beach. We suggest a therapeutic beach walk before or after your appointments.
Appointments by phone or video call
Appointments for Counselling, Meditation and Energy Therapy are available via phone or video call (Zoom or Skype platforms).
We have excellent results and feedback from clients using these appointment styles. They allow great flexibility to access services from anywhere nationally or internationally, and for many people actually allow a greater sense of comfort and reassurance from being able to connect from home. The research shows that benefits and outcomes from working in this way are similar to face-to-face appointments.

Our focus at the Centre for Holistic Living is to support our community to live in a way that draws on the bigger holistic picture. To live holistically means a dynamic balance of the experiences that nourish us, in connection with the natural environment and community.
Daily life is complex, with many demands on our focus and psyche. Living holistically means a dynamic balance managing those demands and their impacts on our system, and drawing on the many strengths and sources of nourishment in our lives. It accesses the deeper inherent wisdom in the psyche and supports against the overwhelm of modern life. And it draws on the inherent health surrounding us in the natural environment, and in our sense of community.
Our work at the Centre integrates these strengths, and supports our community to increasingly build towards them. Imagine if all humanity was living holistically! Explore our ways of working.
