Frequently Asked Questions
I am an Intuitive Healer and I practice holistically. Holistic therapy consists of unlimited avenues to healing. As an intuitive healer, I allow my intuition to guide when to use hypnosis, EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques)/Tapping, Neuro-Linguistic Programming, reiki and many other tools and techniques that allow for gentle intuitive healing.
The reason that I have learned, practiced and mastered so many different techniques is that I believe we all deserve to be happy and there is not just one avenue to happiness that will work for everyone. I want to make sure that I can assist you in whatever changes you want to make and if I only know 1 or 2 techniques, and they don’t work for you, then I have failed you.
WHAT IS HYPNOSIS?
The swinging pocketwatch is what a lot of people think of when they think of hypnosis. Nothing could be further from the truth! Hypnosis is simply a relaxed, naturally occurring state of mind. Have you ever been driving, deep in thought, and found that you missed your exit? Have you ever been so engrossed in a book or movie that you didn’t hear someone calling your name? These are both common hypnotic experiences where you experience a light state of hypnosis. I can teach you how to go much, much deeper…where your mind has control over your body. When in hypnosis, you are in a heightened state of awareness, allowing us to contact the subconscious mind directly where we are able to accept change much more readily. Hypnosis and hypnotherapy are the same thing – just different ways of saying it. Some guided meditations are also similar to hypnosis (again, just interchanging words). I was blessed to train with an incredibly gifted hypnosis instructor years ago. She taught me that most “hypnotists” read scripts. That is a one size fits all approach. And one size does NOT fit all! My gift is in learning what is going to work best for YOU!
WHAT DOES HYPNOSIS FEEL LIKE?
The concept of being like a zombie, like in the movies, couldn’t be farther from the truth. You are in complete control at all times. You will be in a heightened state of awareness and focused attention where we can speak directly to your subconscious mind. We use guided imagery with suggestions for positive change. Many of my clients report the most wonderful feeling of relaxation, saying it’s better than a massage!
WHAT IS “E.F.T./ TAPPING”?
Tapping, aka Emotional Freedom Techniques, is like acupuncture without needles. Working on the same Chinese medicine model (which has been around for 5,000 years!), I teach clients how to use this easy to learn, easy to apply self-help technique. Like hypnosis, many EFT practitioners are reading scripts; and that may help, but when I combine my intuition along with EFT and other techniques, it is like jet fuel for making changes From a 12 year old who used to be afraid of being home alone, to an 82 year old grandmother who wanted to get rid of anxiety, I have been so blessed to witness miracles and my clients are able to take this technique and use it for the rest of their lives. I especially love teaching children EFT-what an honor to teach someone young how to manage their emotions with this simple, self-applied technique!
I was incredibly Blessed to be on a teleclass with Cheryl Richardson back in 1995, when she introduced Gary Craig, Founder of EFT/Emotional Freedom Techniques. I had horrible sleep issues at the time and with EFT, I learned how to sleep again!
Emotional Freedom Techniques has been endorsed by spiritual leaders & personal development experts like Louise Hay, Wayne Dyer, Kris Carr, Cheryl Richardson, Jack Canfield, Bob Proctor, Arielle Ford, Dr. Joseph Mercola, and more!
WHAT IS REIKI?
Reiki is a Japanese technique that helps with stress reduction and relaxation and also promotes healing. Many reiki masters practice hands-on healing. I do not – I use reiki as a remote healing energy. Reiki healing is energy; and energy can travel through time and space. Remote healing energy work allows reconnection and healing at very deep levels. Reiki is but one of the many energy techniques I use and draw upon to assist in the power of healing.
