Spiritual psychotherapy is an approach to psychotherapy that recognizes that we are more than meets the eye. A spiritual psychotherapist sees someone as existing on many planes of awareness at once. We see our clients as the physical person before us and also as multi-dimensional beings. What does this mean for sufferers of depression? Spiritual psychotherapy can help in the crisis of faith in life and oneself that often accompanies depression. Being guided to greater self-awareness, self-appreciate and self- understanding can truly help to shift some of the causes of depression. One of my main tools is hypnotherapy. For those who want to explore with this tool, it can open up awareness of one’s multi-dimensionality and therefore increase hope and motivation for creating a more enjoyable and meaningful life. For instance, in hypnosis, clients often receive messages from their guides, communicate with loved ones that have passed and even get glimpses into past life times. If any o...
When a couple comes in for counseling together, it usually means that they would like to find out if they can repair the relationship. For one thing, that means learning better communication. How do you learn to communicate well with your significant other? Each person will discover in the therapy sessions what “triggers” each other’s anger response. That is, we explore how much of it is ‘projection’ (e.g., he/she reminds you of someone in the past (perhaps a parent) and how much of it is real. It is usually a combination of both.
If one or both of you feel the relationship cannot work anymore, then the therapy will bring out why, and the validity of this will either be confirmed or transformed into a better relationship. Thus, the decision will become evident.
Each of the partners will explore who his/her partner reminds him of, and each will assess one’s own reactions to his/her partner. To optimize this process, role playing will be used in the mod...
For 25+ years we have been helping people to use techniques from our Transformation System for quick and lasting relief from anxiety, fear, worry, feeling stuck or blocked, migraines and IBS. Our system clears out or re-programs the unconscious programming that is a the root of many of these symptoms.

For 2014 we have added the newest mem...
On a recent path of self-discovery on both a personal and professional level, I have encountered a treatment modality that fascinates and amazes me. I recently attended an intensive training related to hypnotherapy practices. I entered the training expecting to strengthen my skills and broaden my understanding of this modality, however I learned so much more. Here are just a few of the surprising facts I learned!
1. Hypnotherapy actually does not involve falling asleep or losing consciousness. Participants are always conscious and remember everything that occurs. While the client never sleeps, they are able to communicate with the subconscious, the mind’s immense and very literal search engine, library, and filing system. This communication can be very profound, therapeutic and helpful to clients.
2. Hypnotherapy and similar techniques have been practiced throughout known history. The word hypnosis was derived from the Greek term ‘hypnos’ meaning ‘sleep.&rsquo...
Hypnosis is a useful technique that takes advantage of the strong power of your subconscious. Choosing the focus of your thoughts empowers you. Choosing the focus of your thoughts is an important step in improving whatever it is you want to be improved. You get to take greater control, choosing what you notice, discovering new ways to behave and feel, allowing the very best you have to offer to be the focus ..eventually allowing your desired state to replace any negative, outdated, unhelpful, ways of being. Hypnosis is a simple technique that can set you up for the best possible outcome every day.
Part of a hypnosis session includes asking you a series of simple and important questions that we will use later when you are in a more relaxed stated. These questions allow your subconscious mind to reveal what it is you need for lasting change. My job is to ask the right questions so that the correct solutions are revealed. My job is to access and interpret your specific and unique wisdom ...
Co-dependency is a term that is used quite commonly, but often misconstrued.
Back in the day it was believed that co-dependency was a good thing that meant that both parties brought something to the table, and depended on each other equally for their assets and qualities, while still respecting each other and keeping their independence. This is actually called interdependence and is the key to having a happy and healthy relationship.
Co-dependency on the other hand, is an unhealthy addiction or obsession, that results in one person relying on the other for their own happiness and self-worth, often in an abusive fashion or from the other side, putting everyone else’s needs and happiness above their own.
Co-dependency has become so prevalent that it cannot only be hard to recognize, it can also be difficult to end it in a healthy way.
Is Your Relationship Co-dependent?
To really determine if your relationship is co-dependent you need to do three things.
1. Define Co-dependenc...
Many people think hypnosis is a passive process whereby a person exclaims “I have this problem” and the therapist “takes control” of their mind to solve it. They think it is as simple as a person sitting back in a chair and getting “commanded” to stop overeating, feel comfortable with the opposite sex, or sparkle when public speaking. Nothing could be further from the truth. Commander-and-chief of your brain, the professional therapist is not.
You have been influencing your mind for how many years already… 30, 40, 50? Paradoxically, rather than taking control away from an individual, Hypnosis is a transformative tool that teaches a person how-to develop greater self-control. In fact, in those contexts where our mind just seems to “take over,” like feeling hopeless after a break-up, freezing up at a job interview or bingeing on cookies, hypnosis leads a person to “resourceful” states of mind. A sense of Inner Secur...
Are you a person who believes that you always do what you intend to do? Most people would probably answer yes. However, despite what you may believe, research shows that the majority of people, do not. In fact, most individuals have far less control then they believe they do. As frustrating as this may be, there are ways of establishing good habits and overcoming those existing ones that seem to get in our way. But first let’s look at how habits are formed, as well as the obstacles we face in overcoming the existing ones that prevent us from achieving our goals.
It has often been said that it takes 3 weeks of repeating a behavior for it to become a habit. However, when looking into this further, I discovered that this is actually not true. In most cases, it takes much longer. (WEW! That sure let’s me off the hook for all those times I thought I would have it down in a month’s time, only to discover that I had not.) In fact, it was discovered in a recent study that fo...
An Empath is typically more sensitive than most people and more than anyone would guess. Empaths tend to put others first to the point of often ignoring their own needs. They will avoid tense, harsh or confrontational situations.
Empaths are highly expressive emotionally and pick up on nuances easily. Thus, loud voices, sudden noises or large groups can become overwhelming. Empaths also have hightened sensitivity to hearing, taste, smell and touch. Thus, Empaths might have food sensitivity (a.k.a. allergic) and sensitivity to strong oders (pollen, chemical products, fabric dye, mold, etc.)
Empaths feel what they see in the world, such as when a child falls down and skins their knee, the Rmpath has a visceral reaction in their own body. When someone bumps into an Empath, she/he says, “Excuse me. I’m sorry.”
Distance has little bearing on what an Rmpath picks up energetically and emotionally. Yet, they are even more affected by being in the same room with a negative e...
Most of us take for granted the fact that we can walk into a roomful of people in a party and proceed to have a good time, while enjoying what the night has to offer. However, there are some of us of who have to deal with a debilitating form of anxiety that manifests itself in an intense fear of social situations and interacting with other people. Let's take a look at social anxiety disorder, its symptoms and treatment.
Social anxiety disorder can be defined as an irrational fear of social interaction and situations. Individuals with this condition feel left out, shy and uncomfortable around large groups of people. Ironically, people want to be included in these situations, and want to belong and feel like they're part of a group. However, what stops them from comfortably enjoying social functions or relaxing around people is the irrational fear that is brought on by by their condition.
Social anxiety disorder is more common than you think, and it is estimated that up to 13.3 percent...
