ADVANCED HOLISTIC
COUNSELING™ & COACHING CERTIFICATION:
Combining the Best of
Traditional Psychotherapy with
the Most Effective Holistic Modalities


WHAT IS ADVANCED HOLISTIC COUNSELING?

Advanced Holistic Counseling is a trademarked psychotherapy model that was created by Beth Miller, LCSW-R, CEC, CAHC. This modern, cutting-edge model provides an organized system for therapists to combine the best skills of Traditional Psychotherapy with the most effective Holistic Modalities from Life Coaching, Energy Healing, Science, Spiritual Counseling, Meditation and Manifestation.

Advanced Holistic Counselors do way more in therapy than just listen compassionately. They actively teach clients the skills they need for a lifetime of happiness and success. Advanced Holistic Counseling is fresh, contemporary therapy that is more efficient and effective at helping clients achieve their goals. AHC creates breakthroughs and transformations in both the therapist and the client.

Beth Miller and her team of dedicated therapists and support staff at Positive Energy Holistic Counseling & Institute are all trained in Advanced Holistic Counseling
and use this model as the basis for all of their clinical work with their clients.


Our Trademarked Advanced Holistic Counseling model has curated the absolute Best Tools From Both Traditional Psychotherapy And Holistic Healing Modalities and fused them together for our students. Our AHC Certification qualifies you as a Specialist with expertise.

DOES ADVANCED HOLISTIC COUNSELING™
ACTUALLY CREATE BETTER RESULTS?

We have hundreds of testimonials, from real clients that reinforce what we know to be true: the AHC model is fresh, modern, and helps clients transform faster and deeper than typical traditional psychotherapy.

And therapists have repeatedly told us that this model makes huge improvements in the therapy they provide and makes them feel inspired and confident in their work. Because AHC combines the best tools from multiple Evidence-Based modalities, it stands to reason that the results are empirical. We are currently conducting research to provide empirical data that demonstrates how Advanced Holistic Counseling™ is more efficient and effective than traditional psychotherapy methods alone.

WHERE AND HOW WILL I BE TRAINED IN
ADVANCED HOLISTIC COUNSELING & COACHING
?
Our hybrid learning format says a lot about how important it is to us that students in our Certification program are getting a thorough and inspiring education. It’s essential that candidates know this is not a flimsy course just to get a “certificate.” We are dedicated to teaching you the AHC material in all of the ways that will make it professionally, personally, and therapeutically transformational.

Our students learn the Advanced Holistic Counseling model in a hybrid of learning platforms that create an in-depth learning experience:

In-Person Immersion Trainings:
There are 4 Immersive Weekends that provide hands-on, in-depth instruction and clinical practice. Students will be able to experience inspiring self-growth exercises together that will expand their personal and professional breakthroughs and transformations.
Online Live trainings:
These bi-weekly Google Meet trainings provide ongoing support and training enable students to deepen their understanding of the self-study material, connect, and ask questions.
Self study:
Students will be provided with the AHC written materials, audios, videos, assignments, and required reading.
Peer Counseling Practicum:
Students will be paired with their peers to provide bi-weekly Peer-Counseling sessions. This will enable them to practice the AHC tools on one another.
Direct-Client Experience:
Some Students will be given the opportunity to provide therapy to several clients that they will hold regular therapy sessions with. These students will provide treatment, diagnosis, and practice the AHC model during these sessions.

Non-NYS students or students who do not have a graduate degree in a counseling-based program will practice the AHC skills with volunteer participants in their home state.

Clinical Supervision, Clinical Support, and Coaching Support:
New York State (NYS) Students will receive quality Clinical Supervision or Clinical Support to help them understand their own process, their countertransference, best practices and their own transformations. They will be given individual guidance and group support to make the most effective clinical interventions with their clients.

Non-NYS students or students who do not have a graduate degree in a counseling-based program will instead receive quality Coaching Support sessions. Formal Clinical Supervision can only be provided to NYS counselors/therapists.

Advanced Holistic Counseling & Coaching Certification Exam & Certificate:

Students who have completed all of their assignments, held the standards of an Advanced Holistic Counselor & Coach, and passed the final exam,

Students with a Graduate Degree in the Counseling or Therapy-Based education will receive a Certification in Advanced Holistic Counseling & Coaching, or “CAHCC” as a Certified Advanced Holistic Counselor.

Students who do not have a Graduate Degree in a Counseling or Therapy-based education will receive a Certification in Advanced Holistic Coaching or “CAHC” as a Certified Advanced Holistic Coach.

WHY DOES THE AHC CERTIFICATION™ CREATE SUCH BIG BREAKTHROUGHS IN THE STUDENTS WHO TAKE IT?
We teach Advanced Holistic Counseling™ & Coaching in a unique way that creates significant and inspiring change in the therapists and coaches who take the course. As students, the therapists and coaches must practice ALL of the tools and skills on themselves, which creates two significant impacts:
1) the students personally change deeply and typically begin manifesting more happiness, peace, love, money, and success at a rapid rate and
2) the students personally understand what makes the AHC tools work best and how to transcend barriers, which enables them to teach the skills to their clients effectively .

It is our experience that therapists and coaches who take the full AHC course not only undergo their own rapid transformations, but also find the level of counseling they have given or received in the past to pale in comparison.

HOW DOES THE AHC CERTIFICATION HELP PSYCHOTHERAPISTS AND COACHES BECOME MORE SUCCESSFUL IN THEIR CAREERS?
-When therapists and coaches use the AHC model and tools with their clients, they both feel excited by the results they get
-AHC therapists and coaches teach clients how to transform,
and do way more in session than just listen.
-Therapists and coaches feel satisfied and inspired their their work,

instead of burned-out or frustrated.
-Therapists and coaches start enjoying a “self-referring machine” where their current clients refer new clients,
which eliminates draining and expensive marketing efforts.
-Therapists and coaches can charge more for their sessions because they’re confident in the value

-Therapist and coaches get to decide if they want to accept insurance or only work with self-pay clients.
-Therapists and coaches get to choose to work with the self-motivated clients that they specialize in.
-Therapists and coaches can achieve the work-life balance they always hoped for as an entrepreneur.
