Complementary Psychotherapy

Depending on your situation, you might experience a combination of psychotherapeutic techniques, such as Counselling, Spiritual Counselling (including Numerology to understand yourself and your relationships), the Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), Counselling, Neuro-linguistic Programming (NLP), Visualisation, guided meditation and some others.

Numerology

What Is Numerology?

Numerology considers each number within your date of birth, and their harmony, as the vibrational code of your being. This code is similar to a computer program (set numbers) mixed with the potential for growth (missing numbers and zeroes). It expresses the Soul’s ‘manifestation’ through physical expression. It defines who we are in our entirety, with all our strengths and weaknesses, talents and lessons, aspirations and drives, and even how we look in this particular incarnation.

Similar to the DNA of our body, this code is set, yet, at the same time, it always remains flexible. We know that various environmental and internal influences can switch our genes on and off. The same is true for the Soul’s code e.g. societal programming and conscious self-development can equally change it for better or worse. It is pre-set at birth (way before, actually), yet it contains the vast potential for change. Indeed, we incarnate here to explore this potential and to grow.

What is the Therapeutic and Transformational Numerology

The Therapeutic and Transformational Numerology (TTN) is a powerful tool for self-discovery. It helps reveal our essential true nature and allows us to see that which is hidden behind the many masks of our ‘personality’. Our ‘personality’ serves us as a means of presenting ourselves to the world.

We are so used to suppressing our unique individuality by constantly adjusting and moulding ourselves to the expectations of others, slaves to our programming, that we no longer know who we really are.

By re-discovering our Inner Selves, we make the first step towards a more fulfilled life with a sense of peace, direction and accomplishment.

What Makes TTN Therapeutic and Transformational?

TTN is therapeutic and transformational in its nature. When you see your chart and it is explained to you, suddenly, so many things become obvious. You will now be able to answer many important questions:

  • Why do I do things the way I do them?
  • Why do some events keep repeating in my life?
  • Why am I struggling in my job or profession?
  • Why am I constantly unhappy in my relationships?
  • Why do I feel uncomfortable within myself?
  • And many, many other questions will simply disappear, as answers to them become clear and obvious to you.

You suddenly become aware of your uniqueness, and it becomes your first step towards self-acceptance. We all know too well that love starts with the acceptance of the Self. As your inner conflict disappears, giving way to your inner strength, you will start feeling love towards yourself and others.

From this place of self-awareness, it is much easier to start the journey of growth and self-improvement towards inner harmony and outer balance, making your journey on this planet more exciting, pleasant, and meaningful.

Nero-Linguistic Programming

What is Neuro-Linguistic Programming or NLP?

NLP is a practical approach based on the deep understanding of our thought processes and their impact on our behaviours. Simply put, it is about why and how we do the things we do and how to change our thinking in order to do things better.

It is one of the most successfully used systems to facilitate powerful, quick and long-lasting change in people. NLP is a constantly developing, fascinating, flexible and expanding field of study. It is often said that NLP knows no boundaries because it deals with people’s mind, the most complex, brilliant and, yet, most malleable system humans possess.

So, what is NLP about? In technical terms, NLP is about how our nervous system (‘Neuro’) processes information we receive through our five physical senses: seeing, hearing, smelling, tasting, touching.

It is about communication systems (‘Linguistic’): pictures, sounds, smell, taste, feelings and self-talk, which we use to make sense of our experiences. And it is about the way we program ourselves to respond to them.

In its heart, NLP is a study of excellence based on the methodology of modelling. The basic idea of modelling is that if you can do it, then everyone can do it; one just has to figure out how you do it, make it more effective, and copy it. And so, it is about identifying concepts (excellence and desired behaviours) and turning them into effective processes which can then be replicated by others in order to achieve the desired outcome faster and each time the process is applied.

That requires both, the NLP researcher and practitioner, to possess a specific attitude, i.e., be inquisitive, objective and ask the right questions. We don’t ask why a particular behaviour is being exhibited, but we want to know how this behaviour is sustained. It’s about what is going on in this particular person’s mind and at this particular moment that makes them display this particular behaviour. The practitioner is then able to tap into the extensive range of proven NLP techniques or design a solution that would utilise the vast body of knowledge available to them through the research and applications in the field of NLP, other mind-related disciplines, and their own Knowing.

Why should you choose NLP?

If you want to get rid unwanted habits, freed yourself from strong addictive, compulsive behaviours and rise above fear, phobias, panic and other uncontrollable reactions, then NLP should be an effective treatment for you. Others have benefitted who were reliving past traumatic events that aroused overpowering thoughts and feelings of anger, feeling depressed, shame and frustration.

What can be treated with Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP)?

NLP as a treatment for depression

Because NLP is an effective tool for changing habits and behaviours, once we have identified which of these are causing, or contributing to, your depression, we can focus on reducing, removing and replacing those thoughts with more convivial ones. You will no longer perceive yourself as a depressed person because you will no longer think like one! What does that mean? More happiness, satisfaction and joy in your life.

NLP is effective in treating phobias

A phobia exists because of an unreasonable fear response, which may or may not have a specific trigger memory. Working through the phobia to identify the source memory, or trigger event will identify the thought processes and responses that have built your phobia over time. Again, because we can change how you view those thoughts, and how you react to them now, we can reprogram the fear and eliminate the phobia. How would it feel, do you think, if your fears were removed?

Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT)

What is the Emotional Freedom Technique?

The Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) is a form of emotional acupressure, based on the Chinese meridian system used in acupuncture. It is a blend of acupuncture and Mind-Body Medicine. The focus is on treating both physical and emotional ailments by ‘tuning in’ to specific issues (e.g., traumatic events, addictions, pain, allergies, etc.) while gently tapping with fingertips on certain acupuncture points.

The technique is based on the notion that it is not negative memories that cause negative emotions to occur, but it is the disruption in the body’s energy flow that leads to the occurrence of negative emotions. This concept is based on the fact that the human body is electrical (or energy) in nature. When energy flows correctly, our bodies function properly; when it is disrupted, our abilities get impaired, and when energy flows stop…we die.

Scientific research proves that our body contains 1,000 billion neurons. These transmit information within the body via electrical impulses. We feel pain instantly because it is electrically passed on along the nerves to our brain. There, the electrical activity of neurons can be easily recorded by Electroencephalography (EEG). Similarly, we can check for problems with the electrical activity of our heart with an electrocardiogram (EKG or ECG). So, there is no doubt that the state of our electrical systems is vital to our physical health.

This concept is also reflected in the 5,000-year-old Chinese system of energy circuits called meridians. These are ‘channels’ running through the whole body, distributing energy (qi or chi) around it. This concept has become the basis for modern day acupuncture, acupressure and many other healing techniques, including EFT, whose main purpose is to restore health by ‘repairing’ the energy flow within the body.

What does this ‘Technique’ involve?

In simple terms, EFT works through repeated, rhythmical tapping of key meridian points. This ‘tapping’ creates a resonant vibration along the energy meridian which, literally, shakes loose any energy blockages. It is these blockages that are stopping the flow of energy and causing the pain you are experiencing.

It is important to explain that the physical tapping of these key points can be, and often is, uncomfortable. This is most commonly noticed when tapping the ‘underarm’ point. I would ask that you tell me immediately should you experience any discomfort during our session.

What can be treated with EFT?

The Emotional Freedom Technique is simple, easily learnt and effective. Almost anyone can use EFT successfully. There is a huge collection of scientific studies validating EFT’s effectiveness. Their findings have been so profound that prestigious institutions such as Harvard, Stanford, and many other universities, hospitals and clinics have chosen to use and/or study them. Therapists worldwide report 80%-95% success rates for many conditions:

EFT is an effective treatment for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

2009 study of 16 institutionalized adolescent boys with histories of physical or psychological abuse showed the substantially reduced intensity of traumatic memories after just a single session of EFT.

Research by the Iraq Veterans Stress Project also proves the effectiveness of EFT. In a study of approximately 100 veterans with severe PTSD, 90 per cent of the participants had such major reduction in symptoms that they no longer met the clinical criteria for PTSD after six one-hour EFT sessions! Sixty per cent no longer met PTSD criteria after merely three EFT sessions!!! At the three-month follow-up, these improvements remained consistent, suggesting long-lasting, potentially permanent, resolution of PTSD. Amazing, isn’t it?!

EFT has proven to be an effective treatment for Depression, Stress and Anxiety

An EFT study involving 30 moderately to severely depressed students was conducted. These students were given four 90-minute EFT sessions. Students who received EFT showed significantly less depression three weeks later after evaluation.

EFT is also an effective treatment for

Well, you name it! So far, everything it has been tried for has worked well.

Dr. Dawson Church, Ph.D., founder of the National Institute for Integrative Healthcare, published a review of more than 40 different EFT studies evaluating the effectiveness of the method. In his paper, he cites studies that demonstrate the method’s effectiveness for a broad variety of issues, including:

  • Phobias
  • Physical Pain
  • Emotional Pain
  • Weight Loss and Food Cravings
  • Athletic Performance Enhancement
  • Academic Performance Enhancement
  • Fatigue
  • Overcoming Limiting Beliefs
  • Anger Management

Is it any surprise that even mainstream medicine is accepting EFT? In the PTSD study, for example, the allopathic medicine solution (drugs) was considered no better than placebo. If you really want to find out more about how EFT can help overcome PTSD in particular, then the documentary entitled Operation: Emotional Freedom, directed by Eric Huurre, tracks veterans and their families who have gone through intensive therapy using EFT.

Matrix Re-imprinting

What Is Matrix Re-imprinting?

Matrix Re-imprinting is a technique developed and taught by Karl Dawson that takes the Emotional Freedom Technique (E.F.T.) one step further, making the combination even more effective. It is a method used to clear adverse feelings, negative learnings and painful past events, using EFT combined with other techniques.

How Does the Matrix Re-imprinting Work?

Using guided meditation approach, you are led back to a past traumatic memory. Using visualisation, you are led to clear the negative learnings by assisting the younger self through the negative event in a new positive way. As a result, you change the foundations of your reactions to the world. This leads to more positive present.

The “re-imprinting” or rewriting process changes the mind’s, body’s, and spirit’s reference pictures to create a more positive perception of the past traumatic event, resulting in less burdened and draining memories and a happier, more relaxed, and healthier YOU!

Spiritual Counselling

What Is Spiritual Counselling?

Spiritual Counselling is a form of therapy that looks at life through a spiritual lens. It is a powerful and holistic therapy that combines many approaches and tools that give access to a deeper understanding of your nature and path on this planet.

During our session, you will discover your strengths, weaknesses, and potential. We will discuss your Soul’s plan and qualities you possess to follow it. We will analyse your energy systems to reveal weaknesses in your organs, mind, and emotions and look for solutions with the help of the system of metaphysical anatomy that links health issues and emotions.

Your health, relationships, self-expression, connection to the Divine and your own Higher Self are all important for your spiritual growth and transformation. They can either block you from or propel towards a more loving, joyous, empowered and fulfilled you, enjoying a life journey that has a purpose and direction.

Is Spiritual Counselling for Right You?

If you answer Yes to one or more question, this therapy may be for you:

Do you think that there is more to life than meet the eye?

Do you feel stuck or unfulfilled and don’t know why?

Are you suffering from depression?

Would you like to experience deeper love for yourself and others?

Do you want to know how to create better relationships?

I have a very specific issue that I want help with

Have you lost someone close and dear to you?

Have you tried conventional treatments without success?

Do you feel a calling to transform yourself and your life?

Do you suffer from social anxiety?

Have you been abused, abandoned or betrayed?

Are you seeking help with your fears, emotions or traumatic memories?

Are you an empath and want to know how to live and work with that?

Do you feel blocked in relationships?

Do you seek to understand who you are and your Soul purpose?

Are you dealing with change or need to make a life-changing decision and need support with that?

Have you been reading self-development or new age literature, but don’t know how to use the knowledge?

Are you experiencing a state of consciousness expansion and look for help with understanding and working with this?

Have you undergone a spiritual awakening and want to explore what it means for you and what’s next?

Are you drawn to the idea of awakening and want to connect deeper with that?

Have you experienced a difficult experience of spirituality, spiritual awakening or crisis, or negative energies and need urgent help?

What to Expect from Your session?

We will work on healing your current life issues through simple techniques and processes aligned with and guided by your Higher Self and higher realms of consciousness. In this process of healing the past, you will feel more grounded and connected to the present, gaining a fuller picture of that what is. We will dissolve negative patterns, limiting beliefs, emotional traumas, outstanding conflicts, sabotaging programming, fears, damaging emotions, toxic relationships.

Your healing will come from the place of its origin, where issues were first established. Bringing up and dissolving multiple layers of trauma and suffering, we will be revealing more and more of your beautiful inner light. As you begin to release and access more of this light, through freeing the light of your Higher Self, you align with your innate nature – the True, Free, Unlimited You. You will discover your inherent freedom, power, and wisdom, and deep and intimate love for yourself and others.

I will be honoured to assist you in this transformational journey with love, compassion, and joy. My highest goal is to help you restore your connection to your Divine nature and unlock your natural abilities to deeply love, be happy, fearless, expansive, and free.

Life Purpose Discovery

Your life purpose consists of the central motivating aims of your life – the reasons you get up in the morning.

Purpose can guide life decisions, influence behaviour, shape goals, offer a sense of direction, and create meaning. For some people, the purpose is connected to vocation—meaningful, satisfying work. For others, their purpose lies in their responsibilities to their family or friends. Others seek meaning through spirituality or religious beliefs. Some people may find their purpose clearly expressed in all these aspects of life.

The purpose will be unique for everyone; what you identify as your path may be different from others. What’s moreyour purpose can actually shift and change throughout life in response to the evolving priorities and fluctuations of your own experiences.

Questions that may come up when you reflect upon your life purpose are:

  • Who am I?
  • Where do I belong?
  • When do I feel fulfilled?
  • What inspires me?

Your calling is as simple as gifts passions values = purpose

How Will I Find my Purpose?

Through various exercises and techniques, including life analysis, body-mind feedback, guided meditation, and some other complementary modalities.

Why Is Life Purpose Important?

Purpose offers emotional and psychological benefits.

Perhaps you have experienced moments when you felt truly connected like you were performing a task you were made for—maybe when you were organizing a grassroots campaign, comforting a sick grandchild, or creating a piece of art or music. It is likely that this was a moment of being in harmony with your purpose.

Living on purpose feels alive, clear, and authentic. You may also experience “flow,” which is a state of total absorption in which time seems to disappear and you feel content and fulfilled.

Purpose can influence physical health

In addition to the emotional and psychological benefits, having a strong sense of purpose can also help you:

  1. Live longerA 2009 study of over 73,000 Japanese men and women found that those who had a strong connection to their sense of purpose (which they call ikigai) tended to live longer than those who didn’t. Additionally, in his study of “Blue Zones” (communities in the world in which people are more likely to live past 100), Dan Buettner identified the factors that most centenarians share, one of them being a strong sense of purpose. In 2014, researchers used data that tracked adults over 14 years and found that “having a purpose in life appears to widely buffer against mortality risk across the adult years.”
  2. Protect against heart disease. Another study in 2008 found that a lower level of purpose in Japanese men was associated with earlier death and cardiovascular disease. More research in this area showed that “purpose is a possible protective factor against near-future myocardial infarction among those with coronary heart disease.”
  3. Prevent Alzheimer’s disease. In studies of thousands of elderly subjects, Dr. Patricia Boyle, a neuropsychologist at the Rush Alzheimer’s Disease Center in Chicago, found that people with a low sense of life purpose were 2.4 times more likely to get Alzheimer’s disease than those with a strong purpose. Further, people with purpose were less likely to develop impairments in daily living and mobility disabilities.
  4. Handle pain better. Purpose can also positively affect pain management—a study in The Journal of Pain found that women with a stronger sense of purpose were better able to withstand heat and cold stimuli applied to their skin.

Living with purpose promotes resilience

One of the common features among people who live with purpose is that they are able to find meaning in the things that happen to them. Andrew Zolli, author of Resilience, describes these people as being able to “cog­ni­tively reap­praise sit­u­a­tions and reg­u­late emo­tions, turning life’s prover­bial lemons into lemon­ade.”

Ed Diener’s extensive research on the science of wellbeing has found that people with a strong sense of purpose are better able to handle the ups and downs of life. Purpose can offer a psychological buffer against obstacles—thus, a person with a strong sense of purpose remains satisfied with life even while experiencing a difficult day. According to Barbara Fredrickson, this kind of long-term resilience can lead to better cardiovascular health, less worry, and greater happiness over time.

What is a calling?

A calling:

  1. Utilizes your natural gifts. We each possess hundreds of skills, and nearly all of us also have some natural gifts, which often emerge early in our lives. Gifts are more than just talents; they are what make you feel fulfilled and happy. Having a sense of humour or an ability to bring joy to others, an ability to quickly compute numbers or an aptitude for leading others are examples of natural gifts that can express your purpose.
  2. Serves others.  Your calling can be thought of as the urge to share your gifts with the world. When you express your gifts for the sake of others, you often experience the joy of being fully alive.
  3. Creates “flow.”  What were you doing the last time you experienced such absorption that you lost all sense of time? You were probably doing something that relates to your calling.

What Is Your Calling?

Do you wake up each morning with the knowledge that you are about to use the day to do something you love? In the evening, do you go to bed feeling fulfilled and satisfied that you spent the day doing work that was meaningful to you and utilized your own gifts and passions?

If not, you’re not alone—according to an international Gallup poll, less than 20% of respondents strongly agreed that they enjoyed what they did each day. To investigate the impact of this phenomenon, Gallup researchers Tom Rath and Jim Harter studied the health and well-being of a group of 168 people through the course of a normal workday. As you might have expected, those who reported feeling engaged with their work had higher levels of happiness and less stress than those who reported feeling disengaged.

 

Guided Meditation

What Is Guided Meditation?

Guided meditation is simply “meditation with the help of a guide.” It is one of the easiest ways to enter into a state of deep relaxation, inner stillness, and mindfulness. And it is one of the most powerful ways to eliminate stress and bring about positive personal changes. Gently easing you into a state of blissfully deep relaxation, guided meditation leads you to the better clarity of the mind, while regulating your heartbeat, blood pressure, metabolism and many other bodily functions.

How Does Guided Meditation Work?

You will sit comfortably or lie down while listening to deeply relaxing music and my voice leading you through a series of relaxing visualizations. As you gradually relax and become more and more still, stress fades away, and your mind becomes calmer and clearer.

While you are in this deeply relaxed state of mind, your subconscious is open to positive suggestions, and I will use this time to take you on an inner journey that is designed to improve one or more aspects of your life. For example, a guided meditation might be tailored towards personal empowerment and positive thinking. Another might focus on emotional healing or spiritual development. You might be taken on a guided journey to unleash your full potential, or you may choose to go on a guided meditation journey simply for the sheer pleasure of experiencing profoundly deep relaxation.

As you can now see, a guided meditation can be an experience that is not only relaxing, but one that enhances your sense of self, that transforms your perspective in positive ways, and that inspires you to live your life to the fullest.

It’s an effortless and very enjoyable experience that results in deep relaxation, elimination of stress and a heightened appreciation of life.

At the conclusion of your guided meditation, I will gradually bring you back to a state of normal awareness, leaving you feeling refreshed, rejuvenated and relaxed.

How long Does a Guided Meditation Take?

Your session will be split into three parts. First part lasts about 15 minutes and is used to discuss and understand the issues you would like to address during your meditation. The second part is 20-30 minute meditation. We conclude our session with a short discussion of your experience.

Generally, a guided meditation might be as short as 5 minutes, or as long as an hour, depending on your personal preference. In most cases, a guided meditation of 15 minutes or longer is recommended if you wish to experience a truly deep state of relaxation and maximize the positive benefits of meditation.

What Are the Benefits of Guided Meditation?

Guided meditations utilize the power of your imagination and the power of visualisation to affect positive personal changes. In this regard, guided meditations are even more powerful than traditional, passive meditation techniques.

Guided Meditation also helps to achieve:

  • Improved clarity in life
    • Spiritual development
    • The sense of elation, freedom and expanded awareness
    • Emotional and physical healing
    • Enhanced creativity
    • Profoundly deep relaxation
    • Increased confidence and personal empowerment
    • The opening of the heart and healing of relationships
    • Reduced negativity or self-defeating behaviours such as angerand low self-esteem
    • Improved performance in work or sports
    • Resolving of psychological issues

A well designed guided meditation that includes positive suggestions and positive visualizations will cause you to have an inner experience of the changes you are seeking to realize in your outer life. It will also make use symbolic imagery, so as to connect with the deeper, more abstract levels of your mind in an effort to encourage profound healing and personal development breakthroughs.

Why is this so important? As The Buddha expressed it:

“The mind is everything.
What you think you become.”
