Check which letters you scored most often and see below to discover what form of therapy suits you best:

Mostly As: Kinesiology

Kinesiology aims to treat the ‘whole person’ rather than your symptoms, making it ideal for people who want to be more in touch with their bodies. A session will involve a process called ‘muscle testing’, where your stressed areas will be located and your body acts as a guide for your therapist to follow on your journey to getting better. Because of the holistic nature of kinesiology you can seek the help of a kinesiologist for a number of reasons, ranging from insomnia to relationship issues, fitness performance and addictions.

Mostly Bs: Hypnotherapy

Too many people steer clear of hypnotherapy because they are scared of someone taking over their brain/tricking them into thinking an onion is an apple. This is a common misunderstanding of hypnotism – your brain won’t do anything it doesn’t truly want to do. Think of it as using your powerful subconscious to ‘rewire’ your brain. Hypnotherapy is particularly good for kicking habits like smoking or overeating.

Mostly Cs: Cell Synergy

Cell Synergy seeks to treat the patient, not the disease, so your treatment will involve working your body and mind. You will be scanned by a scanner, which assess the health of all your organs. The results give a summary of where you are imbalanced and your therapist works with you to correct these imbalances. Some of the common reasons people seek out Cell Synergy is for digestive issues, hormonal imbalances and problems with low energy.

Mostly Ds: Aura Reading and Cleansing

When someone reads your aura, they are reading your current emotional state. Your therapist will be able to gain insight into your state of mind by looking at you with their trained eye and discuss their findings with you. The remedies you might be prescribed include certain crystals, a change in diet, yoga, meditation and more alternative practices.

Mostly Es: Counselling

Most people get confused between counselling and psychology and while they do overlap slightly, they are different. Think of counselling as more focused and potentially more short-term than going to a psychologist. Counselling is great for when you have a specific problem, like struggling to balance work and your love life or needing to deal with your boss in a better way. In a counselling session, you will discuss your problems directly and work towards a solution together.

Mostly Fs: Psychologist

While a counsellor will discuss your problems directly, a therapist will want to trace it back to its root. So for your first few sessions, you might feel confused as to why you’re talking so much about your parents when you came here to talk about your broken heart, for example. A therapist will help you gain a broad understanding about yourself, your problems and how everything links together. It’s a longer journey than most therapies, but will lead to you really knowing yourself.

Mostly Gs: Life Coaching

If life is a game, a life coach can give you the skills to ‘win at life’. You can share what you want to achieve in your lifetime and a life coach will help you to make a plan and actually follow through with it. This is ideal for ambitious people who know they have the potential to do great things but don’t quite know how to tap into it.
