The Beekeeper is an independent mental health clinic and wellbeing centre in Phnom Penh that practices, and promotes, the bringing together of contemporary Western evidence based theory with Eastern philosophical approaches in order to achieve powerful and positive outcomes for our clients.
We offer interdisciplinary therapy services for a wide range of issues, whether they be for change of life concerns, complex mental health issues or specialist areas of work. Our qualified practitioners tailor their support to your needs and are trained across a continuum of care and support.
Integrative practices is a healing-oriented approach that takes account of the whole person. It emphasises the therapeutic relationship between practitioner and the client, it is informed by evidence, and makes use of all appropriate therapies. This includes sound healing, yoga, meditation and other practices.
We believe in taking a more complete approach working with both the mind and body. This is sometimes referred to as a mind-body approach. We use ancient Eastern approaches and combine them with modern Western theoretical perspectives and draw them together to enable and create more positive outcomes for clients.
At the spiritual heart of The Beekeeper is our Little Bees Programme, designed in honour of Laura Knight, who had a profound belief that all children deserve love, happiness, care, and expert support if exposed to trauma. Qualified, professional counselling for children is not widely available in Cambodia, and greatly needed.
Evidence to support the power of Eastern healing practices ranges from anecdotal, to expert opinion, and hard science provided to us via countless peer reviewed studies
