HEART-CENTERED CLINICAL HYPNOTHERAPY
is a much deeper process than regular hypnotherapy or talk therapy. Heart-Centered Clinical Hypnotherapy is psychotherapy in a relaxed state of consciousness to get underneath self-sabotaging patterns of behavior and agreements made in childhood that are now showing up in the life of the adult person as unwanted behaviors, patterns or situations. Core issues are addressed in a deeper and more profound way. The client in the hypnotic state used for clinical hypnotherapy is fully aware of his or her surroundings and interacts with the therapist. The goal is to open the door between the subconscious and the conscious mind and effect life-long transformation.
DEPTH PSYCHOTHERAPY/TRANSPERSONAL PSYCHOLOGY
Identify, heal and resolve what Carl Jung called “the shadow” parts of self that remain unconscious yet manifest in sabotage, undesirable behaviors and negative thought patterns which cause problems in one’s life.
You will be involved in a thought provoking and creative process where goals are identified and accountability is agreed upon in order to move you forward. Homework assignments and follow through are a part of this process. If goals are not met or agreements not followed through with, we will work together to identify limiting beliefs and patterns of sabotage that may be getting in your way. Coaching clients are asked to make a commitment of at least three months of consistency to achieve their goals. If the issues seem to be rooted in unresolved issues or trauma related you will be consulted about considering therapy to resolve them in order to move forward.
SPIRITUAL COACHING AND COUNSELING
Some have abandoned all things spiritual due to trauma, growing up with a religion that was forced upon them, being lost in the throes of addiction, or simply questioning what works for them. Most at this stage feel a sense of disconnection and emptiness. You will be guided to develop a spiritual practice that works for your current belief system to bring you a sense of connection and fulfillment.
