The brain and the mind (why we act and think the way we do) have fascinated me for as long as I can remember. I wanted to be a neurosurgeon, to help people who had mental illnesses (lobotomies were in vogue), or had become quadriplegic.
The financial of such lengthy studies put too much pressure on my family, so I turned to psychology. I attended my first conference when I was 15, and ended up speaking with the presenter, a psychologist/psychoanalyst, who took me under his wings. He opened doors for me to study in his Institute in Nyon, Switzerland, and with the Institut Français de Culture Humaine in Paris, France.
At age 20, I was certified in grapho-morpho-psychology, with training in psycho-analysis. I was studying the Silva Mind Control and parapsychology. The mysterious, i.e. the unexplained, attracted my inquisitive mind.
In 1996, my doctoral thesis was on The Power of the Mind in Healing. Later on, InterActive Guided Imagery taught me how to dialogue with the subconscious mind.
EP-Energy Psychology, hypnosis and NLP-Neuro Linguistic Programming (sensory communication), were added to my chest of tools for rapid and lasting transformation.
Relieve Stress, Worry and Anxiety
A lot of stress comes from a runaway imagination, yet that imagination can be used to relieve stress and anxiety. The worrying mind can be put to rest to focus on matters which will truly make a positive difference in your life.
"I don't seem to worry anymore."
Calmly Face Medical/Dental Procedures
Are you anxious about an upcoming medical or dental procedures? Have you been diagnosed with a catastrophic illness? Your imagination can help you stay calm and face whatever is coming with more poise, increasing your chances at a better outcome.
"Just got home - piece of cake. I had no anxiety whatsoever."
Tap into the Power of Self-Healing and Let Go of "Old Pain"
You were born with the ability to heal. Direct your mind to fully utilize your innate healing power, and to let go of "old pain"- whether physical or emotional - which no longer serves any purpose.
"Wall of stuffed and denied grief... gone..."
Increase Resilience, Confidence, Self-Esteem, Self-Worth
Whether you have to present yourself for an exam, an interview, need to speak in public, or compete in a sport, your trained mind will help you face challenges, fears and phobias with assurance and poise.
"Collapsed my fear of flying."
Bad Habits? STOP!
Whether it's smoking, binging, or spending too much time in activities that are not conducive to health, wellness and success, direct your mind to rewire your brain and remove that habit which does not allow you to enjoy life fully.
“My energy level has returned and I have lost 15 lbs."
You Subconscious/Unconscious Mind sends you thousands of thoughts, pictures, images, ALL DAY LONG (and at night too). However YOU have the POWER TO CHOOSE which ones you will allow to nest in and shape your life. You can program your mind to do YOUR bidding. Ask me how...
When you buy a computer, programs are already installed in it. It is the same with us. We are born with a unique set of programs which may, or may not, be useful.
From birth to about age 7, we are like sponges, gathering as much data as we can, without much rational thought. We are thus further programmed by our parents, teachers, spiritual leaders, our environment and the media.
Later on, critical thinking develops, and we start to realize that our thoughts, habits and behaviors may not lead to the life we desire. Are we stuck?
NO! Just as with a computer, we can delete programs that do not serve us, and add more empowering ones.
Our mind wants the best for us. We need to lead it in the right direction.
Of course, positive thoughts are more empowering than negative thoughts... or are they?
If your mind brings negative thoughts to your attention, it might be for a reason. Just pushing them down does not solve the problem.
Gently following the thread of where they come from can bring resolution, without facing strong opposing resistance.
You would not go in your garden, saying, "There is no weed, there is no weed." You would notice the weeds, and act appropriately. Some weeds are actually very nutritious. Finding and transforming the root cause of negative thoughts, habits or behaviors can be amazingly liberating and empowering.
Oftentimes, addictions cover an uncomfortable feeling. We don't want to let it rise, so we shut it down with a behavior (alcohol, drug, food, video game, shopping...), whatever is necessary to "not feel that." Like lead into gold, it can be transmuted into an empowering behavior.
Fears and phobias usually have their origins in an event that happened before the age of 7, which evolved and transformed over time. Let's find the sensitive event, and release the energy that keeps you reacting.
We drag guilt, shame, grief and other heavy feelings like balls and chains that prevent us from living or lives fully.
How confident are you when you feel guilty? How confident are you when you feel ashamed? Is unprocessed grief keeping you in a state of depression?
If you are ready to release disempowering feelings that drag you down, I would be happy to guide and assist you with tools and techniques that have proven to work quickly and efficiently.
Isn't it time to release these balls and chains?
We experience 2 types of physical pain.
1. The pain that says, "It's time to go to the dentist," or "Get an ambulance, you need help asap," or anything to that nature. It means, "Something is wrong; do something about it NOW!"
2. The pain that lingers. You have taken care of the acute pain, yet it is still there.
There may be an emotional root that needs to be dug out, or the body-mind is simply "protecting" you (or so it thinks) from a potential recurrence. In most cases, this "old" pain can be dealt with and released.
How will you feel without it? How would your life change? What would you be doing?
There are 2 types of stress: Eustress (the good kind) and Distress (the "bad" kind).
You experience Eustress when you are getting ready for a vacation or going to an especially longed for event. You need to get ready... it's a type of stress that gets you "in gear."
Unfortunately, we also experience a lot of stress that negatively affects our health. For this type, it is necessary to learn tools and techniques to mitigate its nefarious effects. There are many easy to use and apply tips that work almost instantly. Ready to learn? Contact me!
We will all experience trauma during our lives. I was fortunate to have an array of tools at my disposal to lessen the impact of C-PTSD (Complex Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) when I was faced with it. I keep learning different ways to alleviate and dissipate the agony of traumatic experiences to better serve my clients. The memory of the trauma may be accessed, yet it will become flat, with no emotional intensity. Be FREE!
Throughout my career as a naturopath and imagery guide, I’ve discovered that no matter what the external problems people have, internal resistance is what blocks humans from playing to their full potential.
There can be many reasons for chronic resistance – negative teachings or feedback, feelings of being an “imposter”, fear of not being “good enough”… the list goes on and on. When you eliminate resistance through skills like reframing, realigning worldview, and clarity development, you do good in the world – for yourself AND for others.
If you’re overwhelmed and feel pulled in a hundred different directions...
If you’re worried about your student's low confidence, or that you will never truly be a successful parent or teacher...
If you’re ready to embrace your full, unique power to transform lives, including your own...
I am here to help you’ll find the fastest, easiest, most permanent way to eliminate these obstacles and claim your well-deserved success.
