Soul Guidance

This methodology helps individuals (also couples or families) to transform habitual, negative, and disruptive behavioral patterns.  The transformation is achieved through a combination of techniques rooted in traditional hypnotherapy, Buddhist psychology, integrated energy medicine, applied shamanism, and transpersonal psychology. With deep re-patterning work, clients can identify and live fully with their true, authentic natures at the spiritual, emotional, mental, and physical levels.

Typically, initial visits involve discovering a client’s emotional history, followed by a guided meditation in which the client taps into his or her inner wisdom, which will be used for support during subsequent sessions. For the next session(s), in an altered state, and by use of dream work, inner child work, or regression work, the client is guided to release or to heal any unhealthy energy that’s associated with current life problems.  This process can be very transformative, and clients can often discover their inner truths, particularly when applied over time.

Today though, many people are experiencing heightened anxiety levels, so visits might entail more soothing and less investigating. Spiritual counseling can be helpful, as can Suggestion Hypnosis, with a focus on staying present and being flexible with all the changes we're facing.
