Specialised Holistic GP Consultations

Are you experiencing a recent or long term health challenge ? Would you like to become an active participant in your own health ? Would you like to learn skills and tools to support greater wellbeing physically, mentally and emotionally ?

Dr Paula Martin is a GP with a special interest in Mind Body Medicine and Holistic Health. Paula is the Director of Beo Centre for Mindfulness & Integrated Health ( www.beomindfulhealth.ie )

Dr Paula offers Specialised Health Consultations. During your consultation Dr Paula will combine her training in Western Medicine and her experience in Mind Body Medicine, to explore your health concern.

The consultation involves looking at seven pillars of health that address the underlying factors influencing your health, rather than just treating the symptoms of disease ( Dr Craig Hassid ). This integrated approach to health invites you to take an active role in your own heath and wellbeing. Integrated Medicine believes in the body's natural ability to support it's own healing process and come back into balance.

Influenced by the work of Dr Craig Hassid (Monash University), this consultation explores your heath concern according to seven pillars of health

  • Education – learning to understand your individual health challenge and the path to living more fully
  • Stress management & Relaxation – developing skills to resource yourself and support relaxation during times of stress
  • Exercise - learning to understand the mind-body connect through exercise
  • Nutrition & Diet - exploring foods as medicine
  • Connectivity – entering a therapeutic relationship of presence, care and support
  • Environment – learning to minimise stress and maximise wellness at work and athome
  • Spirituality – exploring ways to restore meaning in your life, even in times of challenge
