Alfie Wishart, LPC
Alfie Wishart began his career in alternative health as an herbalist, working in an herb store in Austin in the seventies. After attending a lecture on Homeopathy in the fall of 1979, he attended the National Center for summer school program Homeopathy in 1980. Subsequently, he practiced on family and friends with good success. In 1995 he opened a practice in a Chiropractic office in Richardson. He continued his studies with the School of Homeopathy in Devon, England and post graduate work with the Canadian College of Homeopathic Medicine located in Toronto, Canada. Subsequently, he passed the national certification exam and received the Certified Classical Homeopath (CHC) designation. He has studied with Dr. Farokh Master, Dr. Karl Robinson, Dr. Will Taylor, Kim Elia, Janet Snowden, Misha Norland, Judyth Reichenberg-Ullman, and others and now provides Homeopathic services through Curis Functional Health.
Alfie’s practice is informed by the principles and practices of Positive Psychology, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR), Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT), and Mindful Self Compassion (MSC) to help clients address and work through shame, trauma, substance abuse, codependence, spiritual or religious issues, crises of faith, anger, anxiety, depression, and related mental health and relational issues. I work with adolescents, adults, and couples. The social environment in which we live has become exceedingly stressful and thus our ability to maintain a healthy equilibrium has never been more important.
Two of the foundational principles central to my practice are embodied in the following quotes:
The curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am,
then I can change. ~ Carl Rogers
The biggest disease today is not leprosy or tuberculosis,
but rather the feeling of being unwanted. ~ Mother Teresa
The first quote relates to how authentically each person sees and knows who they are and how they relate to themselves. The second is connecting who we are with others and the world at large.
Alfie holds current licenses in the State of Texas as a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) and a Licensed Chemical Dependency Counselor (LCDC). He also has had teacher training in MBSR and MSC.
As a modality separate from his counseling, he has had a practice in Homeopathy since 1995 and has received the designation of a Certified Classical Homeopath (CCH) by the national board, the Center for Homeopathic Certification (CHC). He is a member in good standing with the National Center for Homeopathy and the North American Society of Homeopaths.
