The book, How to Do the Work, is a testament to a revolutionary approach to mental, physical, and spiritual wellness called Holistic Psychology. Nicole explains this movement of empowerment as one that is committed to the daily practice of creating one’s wellness by breaking negative patterns, healing from the past, and creating the conscious Self.
Holistic Psychology focuses on the mind, body, and soul in the service of rebalancing the body and nervous system and healing unresolved emotional wounds. By tapping into one’s core, Holistic Psychology can get to the root of chronic pain, stress, fatigue, anxiety, gut dysregulation, and nervous system imbalance. It offers practical tools that enable practitioners to create new habits for themselves and understand the behavior of others. Nicole assures readers if they commit to doing the work every day, they will soon be looking in the mirror and feeling awestruck by the person looking back at them.
Healing is a conscious process that can be lived daily through changes in habits and patterns. Holistic methods are effective in helping one heal since the body, mind, and soul are connected. They harness the power of the physical with breathwork and bodywork, the psychological by changing one’s relationship to their thoughts and past experiences, and the spiritual by connecting to the authentic self.
