Clinical aromatherapy and psychotherapy work together by combining the therapeutic benefits of essential oils with talk therapy techniques to address emotional, psychological, and physical issues. The use of essential oils in clinical aromatherapy can help to support mental and emotional health by reducing anxiety, depression, and stress. The therapist may use different methods such as inhalation, massage or diffusion to deliver the essential oils, and may also provide education on how to safely use and blend essential oils at home.
Psychotherapy, on the other hand, helps clients to identify and work through emotional and psychological issues that may be causing distress or interfering with their overall well-being. By addressing the root causes of these issues, clients can develop coping skills and create positive changes in their lives.
Together, clinical aromatherapy and psychotherapy can help to create a holistic approach to mental health and wellness, focusing on the whole person rather than just their symptoms.
