My original idea was to give, on this page, a neat and clear explanation of the various techniques and therapies we offer, together with some information about their nature, how they work, what their historical background is. But we are on holistic ground and to do so would be like trying to square the circle. Already the dividing line between ‘therapy’ and ‘technique’ is blurred: where does one start and the other end?
So, giving up a systematic, analytical approach, I shall try to describe some of the ways these various techniques come together, interact and collaborate to heal body, mind and spirit.
If hypnosis is extremely powerful and therapeutic in the most varied healing scenarios it is because it allows us to get into direct contact with our subconscious mind. The idea we have of the Subconscious has evolved greatly since Freud “discovered” it in the second half of the 19th century. Probably the most famous literary example that illustrates the early idea we had of it is The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, published by Robert Louis Stevenson in 1886. In this story the Subconscious, personified by the murderous Mr Hyde, is portrayed as a sort of aggressive, criminal, brutish ape (if you remember, the first sign of Dr Jekyll changing into Mr Hyde was always the growth of monkey-like hair/fur). Now, nearly 150 years later, we have come a long way from that image and we have learnt that: apes are not brutish at all, but instead have very sophisticated minds, experience complex feelings like us and are capable of great kindness and tenderness towards their little ones. This is true for gorillas too, the apes who have more commonly been used to represent the brutish, primeval instincts of the human species, identified with the Subconscious. The reality is very different: gorillas are – unlike their human cousins – very peaceful creatures who avoid conflict whenever they can. The image of the Subconscious has also changed greatly and it is now shifting at an increased speed from a brutish, elementary form of intelligence to a very sophisticated one, with an infinitely wider breadth of knowledge, wisdom and understanding much higher than our highly limited, detail-centred conscious mind has. More and more experts in the field have started to think that our mind is probably not composed of three elements (Subconscious, Conscious and Super-Conscious or Higher Self), but of two: Conscious and “Non-Conscious”, where the Non-Conscious includes both the Subconscious and the Higher-Self, which have now started to be recognised as one and the same. This idea is not recent anyway, since it germinated from the concept of the Collective Subconscious formulated a century ago by Carl Gustav Jung, who laid the first stepping stone in this direction. Since its first formulation a lot of work has been carried out in this field, and today those of us who are familiar with working with the subconscious mind know very well how intelligent, sensitive and wise the Subconscious is. Its sense of humour in particular never ceases to amaze me, together with its wisdom and gentle care in its continuous attempt to protect us from discomfort and suffering. Unlike the case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, our Subconscious is our best friend and protector, only too eager to please us and grant us what we ask. This is why we have to be very careful about what we actually ask for, and we need to make sure that our demands are formulated properly so as not to risk ending up with something very different from our expectations. It is now clear that, during our incarnation, while our spirit is trapped in a material body, the Subconscious is our portal to the Spiritual World and to a wisdom and power that we cannot even fathom, let alone dream of mastering in our conscious state. Hypnosis is the fastest, surest way to bring the Subconscious to the forefront so that we can work with it to solve our problems and have answers to our questions.
There are two fundamental types of regression: Age Regression and Past Life Regression. However, the distinction is only in our minds because the techniques used to heal traumas and other problems are the same, since the Subconscious doesn't see the passage between this life and the previous ones as a barrier. It sees all our past experiences as a continuum, all on the same level. When I work with a client who needs to find the root of a problem/illness/behaviour, I always give an open instruction: “Go to the root of the problem”. I don't give dates and times because although my client might be sure of the origin of their problem, we know that we can be wrong. An open instruction/question gives the Subconscious the freedom to use its wisdom and its knowledge to go to the right place, wherever it is located. In the 80s Dr Weiss stumbled into past lives' memories by chance, while regressing a client with a lot of problems. Instead of asking her to go back to a certain age of her childhood, on one occasion he asked her to go back to the root of her problems: and there she was, in another time, another place, another life, thousands of years earlier. It happens quite regularly that when I regress a client to the root of their problem(s), they recall memories both from past lives and from the early years of their present life, without any distinction. For simplicity I shall therefore use the expressions “Past Life Journey” and “Past Life Therapy” even when a regression to previous years of the current life is or can be included.
Some people come for past life regression out of curiosity or some intellectual interest and in this case the process is straightforward, but in many cases the client has a specific reason to come to me and ask for a past life journey (or for me to suggest such a therapy). These reasons are many and varied, as well as the techniques/therapies used to deal with them. Some of these situations can also be dealt with using conventional hypnosis (or even NLP techniques without hypnosis), but I have seen that when these same techniques are applied in this context, the results are quicker and more fulfilling because they really go to the core of our being.
Balancing Karma helps us to meet karmic partners with whom we have interacted in a negative way in the past, creating negative karma that hampers our evolution. Soul Mates Investigation helps us to discover the history we share with some very special people we know today, investigating our interactions in previous existences. Sometimes the feeling of this “ancient familiarity” surviving in the present context can create confusion, interfering with our present type of relationship (for example mother and son or two brothers in a previous life, who have now reincarnated as husband and wife).
Spiritual Grief Therapy (which can also include or be included in Grief and Bereavement Counselling) can be of great comfort to those who have difficulty parting from a deceased loved one. It helps them to say good-bye and also gives them an opportunity to say all the things they regret not to have said before the death occurred, so that both the living person and the dead one can be set free and move on, continuing their spiritual journey. Often, in these situations, we also experience an Emotional Release of the stuck energy which was trapped by sadness and bereavement (and which can occur in many different situations). Once this happens, the energy starts flowing again and healing unfolds.
Reframing (of the Past) (also known as Rewriting the History) is a very effective technique that allows us to create a new pattern in our minds (a new mental path) in order to replace a past trauma or shock with a much more positive outcome: you don’t forget what happened, but your mind learns to respond to a different, positive “history” and to bypass the traumatic event, avoiding the negative consequences caused by the trauma actually suffered. It is normally used in past life regression, but sometimes also in age regression.
Pathway Meditation is also connected with feelings of regret and guilt that can affect us badly in our everyday life by obstructing and sabotaging our attempts to proceed on the spiritual path. If the client feels that either in this life or in a previous one they took a wrong decision, a decision that caused them and other people suffering and unhappiness, then they can be guided in the exploration of the alternative way, the way they didn’t take and which they now perceive as “the right one”, “the great missed opportunity”. Sometimes, through this guided meditation, the client might discover that perhaps that “wonderful opportunity” was not that wonderful in the end and – even if it was – it's always better to know what one has missed rather than brooding on what might have been, because knowledge is always better than guessing. In such situations Time Line Work is also very successfully employed to heal the entire series of our lives and to undo the chain of negative effects which ensued from that wrong decision like ripples on water. In our human interactions we exchange energy all the time. Some people – especially in some situations – can steal energy from us (or we from them). There are souls who are (often unknowingly) energy-predators, and they can steal our energy, whereas there are other people who can be particularly vulnerable to such attacks because they have a low protection system (a weak or damaged aura) or they are energetically too open. The final result is always an energy imbalance that can develop – for the person who has been depleted – into chronic fatigue, depression, low self-esteem and feelings of helplessness, unworthiness and incompleteness (and sometimes even physical diseases). With a technique called Energy Recovery Technique we can rebalance our aura (our shell of energy which encloses our life-force) and by Cutting the Cords of Attachment we can set ourselves free from old connections which we have out-grown and – again – which are preventing us from spiritually evolving.
There are many cases in which – either in this life or in a previous one – we have felt brutally torn away from a person or a place. The Energy Recovery Technique can help us only to a certain degree; sometimes the shock has been so strong (or we have suffered for so long in a certain situation) that a piece of our soul is literally ripped off from us and remains attached to the place where this past event occurred. Soul Retrieval is one of the advanced PLR techniques we offer. It is commonly known as a Shamanic technique, but our method differs greatly from the Shamanic one: in Shamanism it's the Shaman who takes the journey in search of the soul and brings it back and reintegrates it inside the client's energetic field. The client doesn't directly take part in the process and therefore has a passive role. What we do instead is to guide the client to the place where the fragment of their soul is, so that they can experience the cathartic beauty of its recognition, and then we help them to reintegrate the lost fragment within themselves. They can then return whole and fulfilled again.
In the case of Soul Retrieval and all those situations in which – for some reason – it’s important to see how a far-away place appears today, we can use the Remote Viewing Technique. This technique was first used (in modern times at least) by the CIA during the Cold War for espionage purposes. Psychics were employed for the experiments, which proved to be very successful. The same types of experiments were then duplicated by scientists in laboratories, using ‘ordinary’ people with no particular psychic ability, and their success proved that – under the right conditions – anyone can do the same. In hypnosis – once more – we are in the best position to succeed.
Discarding Limiting, Outdated Beliefs is another NLP technique which yields great results when it is applied during a past life journey because it can span the entire cycle of rebirths. In this way we can free ourselves from any limiting beliefs we created and engraved in our genetic mind in a series of previous incarnations, not only in this one. This newly acquired freedom has proved to be very beneficial in expanding the horizon of our expectations so that we can allow greater good into our lives.
Much healing can be done through advanced techniques of past life regression: some of these techniques, commonly used in age regression, acquire a new, much larger breadth when applied to the entire cycle of lives we have experienced. Inner Child Healing is probably the best known technique to heal old emotional wounds, and Affect Bridge Technique helps us to go straight to the real root-cause of a problem. Spiritual Parts Therapy helps us to harmonise our various Selves, within this life as well as within the Selves of our previous lives, in order to eliminate any form of resistance and friction that may have been stored (sometimes buried) in our Subconscious and which might be sabotaging our present intentions. Along the same line we find other techniques such as: Meeting Your Past Life Self, Past Life Healer Technique and Past Life Healing. They all aim to fix and smooth out old imbalances, heal old wounds and increase our energy level. The Spiritual Beings Meditation is particularly appropriate in the latter case and it leads us now to explore Interlife (or Life Between Lives) work.
More and more often I see clients who ask me to help them to access the interlife state. This is the state where we exist when we are not incarnated: we analyse and assess our previous life and at the same time we design our next step on the ladder of our spiritual evolution, drafting the blueprint of our next incarnated existence. This, in itself, can give us great insights into our spiritual path and our life-plan in this present life. We can learn from our past mistakes: we can see the ‘wrong’ choices we have made in the past, and how they affected the subsequent events. Much Spiritual Healing can ensue from it. In this state we can also be guided into a Spiritual Beings Meditation and access a type of wisdom which is beyond our reach in the rational state of our everyday life. The exploration is highly symbolic and everyone can see their spiritual helpers in the guise suggested by their own religious beliefs.
There are two very distinct types of future life progressions: one that stretches into the far future, into our next existences, and one that explores the more limited (and closer) future in this life.
A word of warning here: the future is only an endless number of possibilities. Every day and every minute we take decisions and make choices, the large part of which are unconscious. For example we choose to breathe in a certain way rather than another and this affects both our physiology and our psychological mood. We might decide to have a cup of tea or we might not. We can decide to call an old friend we haven’t heard from for ages, or we might just carry on with our routine. We might decide to change job and relocate to another town, or another country, or we might decide to remain in our present position and change nothing. We might decide to get married or we might decide to leave our partner or remain single. We know that some of our choices will bear long-lasting consequences and we are aware that the rest of our lives will depend on that specific choice. But others are quite trivial and some even bypass our conscious mind. The fact is that there is no such thing as a trivial choice. Potentially at least they are all life-changing. We might opt for the cup of tea in the end, go into the kitchen, slip or stumble and break our back, remaining paralysed for the rest of our life. Or we can decide to stay where we are, the ceiling falls on our head and we are killed on the spot: we simply cannot know. Even leaving aside such catastrophic endings, the truth is that we meet forks on our path all the time.
Future Life Progression in this life is something that can provide invaluable, tangible help. A technique that I particularly value is the Alternative Choice Investigation. In the end we take our chances and we don’t bother about the implications of having or not having a cup of tea, but there are situations that amaze us with their enormous significance and gravity, and the more we feel their importance, the more difficult it becomes to take a decision, to look at the situation with a clear and calm mind: we feel paralysed. The subject of these choices can be anything in life that is important to us. It can be deciding to get married with a certain man/woman or deciding to take a new job that requires relocation. An example of a typical question might be: do I continue with a job which is not so fulfilling while living in a house/area/town/city I love very much and which is convenient in many ways, or do I accept an attractive position, moving to a place where I am not so keen to live? The Alternative Choice Investigation is extremely useful when we are faced with such difficult and important choices in our lives, but don’t know which one we want. It is there to assist us in these compelling and sometimes difficult choices.
With a guided investigation, while in deep hypnosis, with easy access to the great richness and wisdom of your Subconscious, you will be able to access all the hidden resources inside yourself, so that you can make the most informed choice. You will be guided in investigating all the possible effects that each choice will entail in the time to come, which your conscious mind alone cannot foresee. You will explore the consequences of the different options you are contemplating. In this way you will be able to see behind the immediate situation and appreciate and weigh up the long-term implications of your choice.
At first sight it may appear futile to progress to a very distant future, centuries and millennia ahead, because we are confronted with too many choices, personally and collectively as a species, and what we see is anyway only one out of billions of possibilities of universal interacting. A progression to a distant future life can appear to us like a SciFi film, with the only difference that we are the main character in it and it can be great fun in itself. But there is more than that to it: there can be great spiritual lessons to be learned. We incarnate in order to learn lessons and sometimes it can take us many lives to learn a single lesson. This is why, when we revise past lives, we find some leit-motiven stretching like bridges from one life to another up to our present one. Learning is never easy and the lesson we are learning in this life is likely to be something we are carrying on from the past and we might be struggling with it because of our stubbornness and inability to detach from the old, familiar patterns. Like the progression in this life that allows us to see the ultimate consequences of a choice, a future life progression will show us the ultimate consequences of our present narrow-mindedness and stubbornness. It will show us struggling again and again with the same problem, from different angles, and it will show us how much more suffering may await us until we let go of the old, limiting ideas. This will bring instant awareness to us now, and will lead us to drastic changes in this life, hic et nunc, here and now. These changes will then ripple into the future bringing healing with them and making any further learning and painful struggle in that direction superfluous. The result will be an incredible acceleration on our spiritual path. People who have repeated a future progression after they have become aware of their present limiting ideas and let them go, see completely different scenarios, much brighter and more positive. Linear time exists only in our physical perception: if we accept that only the present exists, healing can be done at any time and spreads in all directions.
We offer dedicated and caring life coaching and counselling support. Very often our clients come to us with problems which stem, in part or completely, from emotional blockages, negative thinking and limiting decisions and beliefs. In all these cases the counselling aspect is an integral part of the healing process, essential to reach a quick, lasting and positive outcome. It provides our clients with new perspectives and a new angle of analysis to cope with or overcome the problem that affects them. We start with a thorough discussion of the problem, assisting the clients in clarifying their situation and their feelings, and encouraging them to find their own appropriate, satisfactory answers. Once they have decided on the new, more successful behaviour they are happy to adopt, we use hypnosis to anchor it in their Subconscious so that the journey to their empowered Selves will be easy and simple. On this path we use many different tools, from the Law of Attraction to Positive Thinking Reframing and Discarding Limiting, Outdated Beliefs.
This is an integrated, very powerful new therapy that we have created with our clients needs in mind. It is exclusive to our practice and you will not find it anywhere else. It is a very effective and flexible technique, able to solve a huge array of problems and ... wishes, making their solution or actualisation easy to achieve and permanent. It is great fun too and it develops and encourages your creativity. It includes Visualisation; NLP; Time Line work; Hypnosis; Parts Therapy; Law of Attraction; Positive Thinking; Positive Thinking Reframing; Discarding Limiting, Outdated Beliefs; Spiritual Beings Interaction and much more. It's a wonderful way to turn your dreams into reality and to heal old traumas at the same time, in a playful and rewarding interactive process which will dramatically increase your expectations (and your achievements) in life. For a limited period, all those having Interactive Inner World Therapy will also receive a beautifully illustrated free book which will help them increase their motivation even more.
Come and try it and you will be amazed to discover that you can create worlds: it's magic!
"Wellness that is being allowed, or the wellness that is being denied, is all about the mindset, the mood, the attitude, the practiced thoughts. There is not one exception, in any human or beast, because you can patch them up again and again, and they will just find another way of reverting back to the natural rhythm of their mind. Treating the body really is about treating the mind. It is all psychosomatic. Every bit of it, no exceptions".
"Any malady in your physical body was a lot longer in coming than it takes to release it".
The most recent studies in quantum physics are proving more and more that the subconscious mind can alter those physical functions of the body that in the past were considered totally beyond our control and due exclusively to physical reactions unconnected with the mind. It is becoming clearer and clearer that the source of all diseases is actually the mind. Through this newly acquired knowledge, physicians, scientists and practitioners are working together on a totally new approach to help people cope with, reduce (and often heal) diseases, even those which – until a short time ago – had been considered incurable. Hypnosis is an invaluable tool in this new, very promising field of research because it is the most efficient and the quickest way to reach the subconscious mind, and to obtain benefits in the treatment of even the most serious diseases.
I have developed a combined therapy of Guided Visualisation, Positive Thinking, Holistic and Traditional Hypnosis, Counselling and NLP to help people suffering from various physical ailments. The first step back to health is stopping them feeling like helpless victims, and empowering them again, so that they can actively work on the process of recovering their physical health together with their psychological and emotional well-being. A disease we suffer from in this life might have already afflicted us in previous lifetimes. With the Somatic Bridge Technique and Affect Bridge Technique we can trace it back to its original cause through the physical sensations and feelings connected to it. If the original imbalance that generated it has never been healed and resolved, it is likely to have re-surfaced over and over again in interlinked subsequent existences up to our present life. Through this technique and Time Line Work, we travel backwards to heal the karmic imbalance, life after life, back to its first appearance.
The origins of Reiki are controversial and shrouded in mystery. Many claim paternity but it’s more likely that polygenesis played an important role in confusing its origins. In fact, like many other ancient beliefs and healing techniques, we can find traces of pseudo-Reiki techniques all over the word from very early times.
The recent, documented phase of Reiki, which marks its modern history, starts with its rediscovery by the Japanese Buddhist monk Mikao Usui, at the end of the 19th century. Reiki was then introduced to the West during the 70s through Usui’s lineage of Chujiro Hayashi, Hawayo Takata, Phillis Lei Furumoto.
Reiki is based on the transmission of the life-force which permeates the entire universe (Ki in Japanese, Chi in Chinese, Prana in Sanskrit, Mana in Hawaiian) through the use of sacred symbols and the laying-on of hands. However it can also be sent or passed through a proxy, because it works at a higher level where everything is connected, and therefore the physical distance between the healer and the ‘healee’ is irrelevant: it is non-local.
Everyone can receive Reiki with great benefit, but if we want to pass it to and heal others, we need to receive the appropriate attunements from a Reiki Master first. There are basically three levels of Reiki attunements, the third one often split into two further levels (third degree practitioner and third degree Master). The function of the attunements is to clear the channels (or meridians – the same used in acupuncture) of our etheric body and thereby make us a clear channel to pass the healing energy flow.
Reiki quickly became very popular in America and soon reached Europe, becoming first established in Germany, where it has been used in many hospitals for decades. Its popularity and effectiveness has encouraged the creation of many different branches and more symbols have now been added to the original, traditional ones.
Although initially Reiki was used essentially to heal physical illnesses, restoring a free flow of energy in the energetic body or aura, and removing the blockages responsible for disease, it has gradually begun to be used in more spiritual ways on subtle planes. In fact Reiki, being the positive healing force of the universe, can help us to restore harmony and wellness everywhere because it dispels negativity. Therefore Reiki is very successfully used to “heal” situations, to unblock stagnant, stuck conditions (both mental and physical) and also to destroy impurities caused by chemicals and pollution: it can be used on food for instance, to boost its nutritive values and reduce or destroy its impurities. Everyone and everything benefits from the Reiki flow. We can heal a person or an animal, but also a plant. We can clear a room from negativity or reduce the side-effects of chemical drugs. We can charge and clean healing crystals and we can send much needed healing to Mother Earth. Animals, being much more open to the universal flow of energy than we are, are particularly good subjects.
When used in regression work Reiki becomes especially effective because – being itself pure energy – it flows directly into the energy field of the person without having to pass through the much denser material body. Its strong positive force greatly helps to heal all wounds of the soul and raise our energy, facilitating ascension.
