Phyllis Bennett, LMSW, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in Nashville
*Mind*Body*Soul. In our culture, we say we believe we are made up of equally important parts of mind, body, soul, but do we truly believe this? While we may make some effort towards physical exercise and nutrition, what do we do to care for our souls? When we neglect our souls, or worse, when we have sustained a "soul injury," it can manifest itself in our minds and bodies (inability to concentrate, intrusive thoughts, low energy, overeating, etc). As a wellness and psychospiritual coach, allow me to walk beside you in caring for your soul first, so healing can flow from there.
In partnership with my clients, we will pay attention to and address that which is blocking joy and a full life. Oftentimes, we are unable to achieve balance and experience joy because we have neglected to care for an emotional or soul injury.
Holistic care, focusing on all the parts we are made of, including our minds, bodies, and souls, is the priority. We will not achieve balance if we neglect any part. Groups are followed by exercise hour to care for ourselves physically after focusing on our minds and souls during the group process.
