Until not long ago Past Life Regression was treated as a sort of Cinderella by the Hypnotherapy community, with very few professionals offering this specialised service. Nowadays – after having noticed that an ever-growing public is interested in it – therapists have turned to PLR as a new field that can bring more business to their practice. Hence the appearance of many PLR courses for therapists and many therapists now offering this service. Unfortunately these courses only last a few days (sometimes just one or two days). Some therapists even offer PLR without having undergone any specific study in this field at all, thinking that they can offer a good service just because they are hypnotherapists.
A good past life therapist needs much more than that, because this technique (much more than Age Regression) requires in-depth knowledge of very varied and complex fields, besides the basic knowledge of conventional hypnotherapy shared by all hypnotherapists. The past life regressionist must be conversant in philosophy, history of religions, modern (quantum) science and spirituality in order to offer a good service to their clients. Without this background the service will be lacking in depth, understanding, resources and sometimes even appropriate techniques, and such training requires years of serious study and practice.
Quite often PL regressionists – who have undergone only brief training – simply facilitate the revision of previous lives and nothing else, leaving the client with a large amount of emotional information but without any clue as to how to process and integrate it into their consciousness.
I have studied reincarnation, past life regression, near-death experiences and similar phenomena all my life (since my teens) from many different angles, some of these approaches even being part of my doctoral research, and – besides having studied under the guidance of Dr Brian Weiss – I qualified in Advanced Hypnotherapy and Advanced Techniques of Hypnotic Regression, which I also use to help people to overcome traumas, phobias (even physical diseases in some cases) and other problems in this life through Age Regression (in which I have also specialised).
For these reasons I will not simply lead you through a tourist excursion into your distant past, but I will be able to safely guide you through removing old blockages and emotional wounds that can still interfere with your present life, cutting the ties with the negative emotions and limiting beliefs generated in those past lives, and letting go of painful experiences. If necessary, I shall also be able to put you in contact with your various past Selves so that you can rebalance your whole being. I shall guide you through assessing your past lives from a spiritual point of view while you are in the non-incarnated spiritual dimension (the interlife or ‘life between lives’ state), and understanding the lessons learnt in those lives in order to enhance and heal your present life. This new awareness will allow deep and powerful healing to occur so that your body, mind and spirit can be harmoniously realigned and an even and smooth flow of energy can be restored throughout all the planes. I shall also help you to trace back relationships with important people in your current lifetime, giving you a deeper understanding of the spiritual values of your present experiences. My PLR sessions normally consist of three parts:
1. the time some people need to discuss their problems before being regressed (some people come due to a general interest, but many come with a specific problem they want to solve, or a specific question). This part is essential to make the regression as successful as possible and to tackle all the problems existing in this life;
2. the regression itself, which normally includes a revision of one or two past lives and is recorded onto CD, and
3. the time – after the regression – spent discussing the findings, and giving you instructions about what to do at home so that you can get the best from the session.
A PLR is in fact a complex process in which the memories stored in the subconscious mind start being activated from the moment we decide to undergo a regression, and they continue in the days (sometimes even the weeks) afterwards and this is why I offer – besides the free CD recording of the regression itself – free follow-up support, because my commitment to you doesn't end when you leave my practice. In order to provide the best possible care for our clients, we accept only a limited number of bookings. As a practice we endeavour to provide support and guidance (via email and telephone) after a client has left our premises for as long as it benefits them, and this is offered for all the therapies available at The Apple Tree and Footprints from the Past.
If you are considering having a Past Life Regression you have several choices about how to approach this profound experience; they complement each other rather than replace each other. Remember, there is not a right or wrong choice: there are only different approaches. Read below and decide which you feel more comfortable with: that's the best approach for you.
One-to-One sessions: this is the "real thing", the complete personalised session, the most complete approach, although it might not necessarily be your first approach: it is indispensable though for therapeutic purposes and specific issues.
Direct feedback: I ask you a question and you reply, if you don't, I try in another way. Once you have replied I ask you another question based on your previous answer. I also give you the time you personally need to answer, and I encourage you in different ways if you encounter a difficulty. I take you to the end of the life recalled, just after death, and I ask you to revise that life. I suggest appropriate actions to make you either let go of and forgive the "mistakes" you made (deeds that you perceive as mistakes) or pick up the positive things and put them into your heart to help your present life. There are of course many other things that can be done in a one-to-one session – depending on the results of the investigation – which pertain to the field of advanced techniques (let go, meet the perpetrator of some negative action and cut the ties with them, investigate the spiritual world, investigate specific issues that bother or hamper your present life, interconnect your past Selves, recover a lost part of your spirit after some old trauma …).
It takes between two and two and a half hours (sometimes – rarely – three hours) for a successful one-to-one session, which means it's more expensive than the other choices. In a few cases some people do not succeed in revising a past life at their first attempt. If it doesn't work it takes approximately one and a half hours to try alternative methods before giving up. However, even in these cases, we normally manage to get some very useful information about the nature of the blockage, and I can advise you on exercises you can do at home on your own, in order to resolve the problem.
Although the experience of one-to-one sessions is always powerful in itself and the most complete, it might not always be what you expected: so please keep an open mind. The best approach is: expect nothing and be open to anything! In individual sessions you might also feel more pressured to "perform", and therefore less relaxed and less able to enter the right mood.
Workshops – Group sessions: there is a choice of workshops of different lengths up to three days. Workshops are ideal for meeting other like-minded people and discussing topics connected to Reincarnation, Karma and spiritual issues as well as Developing Psychic Abilities and learning Spiritual Healing. They are informative and very motivating, and they help you to become more aware of the background to regression, reincarnation, and psychic phenomena, understanding your experiences in greater depth. Please check our dedicated page to see all the options and the workshops available by clicking here or contact us if you have any other query. Attending a workshop is also an excellent way to test your abilities without engaging yourself too much (financially speaking) or if a part of you feels some tension or anxiety at the idea of in-depth regression. On the basis of the experience you build up during the workshop you might consider attending a one-to-one session later on: the group sessions will allow you to make a more informed decision about it and you will spare yourself some of the preliminaries when attending a one-to-one.
They are cheaper than one-to-one sessions. You have the opportunity to explore more technical aspects and the philosophy behind past life regressions, future life progressions, interlife explorations, soulmates, soul-group, twin flames, ghosts, spiritual healing, the nature of time … You also have the opportunity to ask questions and compare your knowledge on the subject with that of others. Because of the nature of group regressions you will feel less pressure to "perform". This relaxes the mind and makes it easier to succeed. Workshops are wonderful as motivators to pursue a spiritual path. You will also have the advantage of experiencing the powerful synergetic effect created by a group regression.
The main disadvantage is that they are group regressions. I ask questions and lead the group to places and situations but I cannot tailor the questions to your personal pace and issues and I cannot follow the events that you are personally experiencing. All the instructions are more generalised and the investigation is therefore – obviously – more limited.
CD Recording: a recorded regression on CD is more a tool to support regression work than a method in itself. A CD is excellent to use after a session (either group or one-to-one sessions) to help you to go deeper into the experience and discover more details of some single event or aspect of your regression. Even in the event that you haven't succeeded in recalling a past life, the recording is ideal to train yourself and familiarise yourself with the process, until you finally manage to gently overcome your blockages and have hints of past events, at your own individual pace (I shall teach how to achieve this through the CD and I can follow your progress by email). At that point you will be more confident to book a one-to-one session to investigate them and heal traumas. Finally, I would like to remind the small minority of people who don't succeed in recalling a previous life at the first attempt that Dr Brian Weiss, the number one world specialist in this field, in spite of successfully regressing clients, spent three months of daily meditation before managing to recall one of his own previous lives: this proves, once more, that we are all different and that there are no general rules.
You can play the CD as often as you want with a minimum financial investment. You can relax in the comfort of your home and try it when you really feel inspired to do so. In this way you completely free yourself from the pressure of having to "perform". You will also be able to investigate in greater depth specific episodes you have seen in a one-to-one session (I shall teach you how to do that).
It's like a group session minus the discussion and the analysis of the findings. The recorded version is also shorter than the group regressions experienced in the workshops, and it is obviously less motivating than attending a workshop. Although you can try the CD when you feel inspired to do so, it's a solitary path, and you cannot rely on external motivators nor can you receive help in overcoming problems.

POINTS TO CONSIDER BEFORE …
- Choosing a therapist
- Comparing the fees of different practitioners
~ You need to find the right approach for you in order to have the results you want. Hypnotherapy is a very large field with many different approaches: look for the right one for you.
~ Choose the practitioner you feel most comfortable with. Trust your gut feelings, because the rapport that is created between you and the practitioner is very important for the success of your therapy.
~ Choose wisely! Look for someone with a solid background, training and expertise! Hypnotherapy is an unregulated field and even among qualified practitioners some specialisations may come from having attended a training course lasting a few days or a couple of weeks, while others may come from years and decades of specialised study and research in that particular subject.
~ Follow-up support is extremely important. Make sure it is included in the price you pay because you may wish to discuss experiences or ask advice afterwards. In fact you are likely to be given exercises to do at home to continue the work started at the practice.
~ Avoid “conveyor-belt” type sessions. They may be cheaper (although this is not always the case) but there is a reason for this! You don’t want a therapist who goes from one client to another, non-stop, because they won’t be able to give you their full attention. You are a unique human being with your own, unique story, not just one name among many in a diary.
~ Fixed-length sessions are very convenient, yes … for therapists, not for clients! With fixed-length sessions therapists can schedule many clients one after the other and make more money, but the truth is that no-one can know in advance how long a session should last. Its length largely depends on what surfaces during the session itself, and on what the client has to discuss. As you don’t want to stay longer (and pay more) in order to reach the pre-determined length of the session, you don’t want to break the flow of the therapy that has developed because another client is waiting to come in.
The bottom line is:
There are no two hypnotherapists who are the same, and your final results will depend greatly on the competence and skills of the therapist, the rapport you have with them, and your motivation, and role in the healing process.
For a limited period of time we are offering a £10 reduction PER HOUR
while still providing the same caring and professional service.
Standard sessions of Past Life Regression, Future Life Progression and Life Between Lives Investigation normally last between two and two and a half hours. In some rare cases they can even reach 3 hours. You can ask for shorter sessions if you prefer, but it is not advisable to have less than two hours (it wouldn’t be good value since a thorough preparation prior to the regression itself is needed at the first session, in order to assure the best results). Obviously sessions for general spiritual interest tend to be shorter than sessions aimed at solving problems and traumas. Our promotional fees are £70 per hour (£80 full price when there is no promotion) . A limited number of weekend and bank holiday appointments are available (which are subject to an extra hourly charge of £10). Please contact us for details.
Please note that you will need to pay in cash: we are unable to accept payments by credit card.
Every Past Life Regression, Future Life Progression and Life Between Life Investigation session also includes a FREE CD recording of the session. All therapies are offered with FREE follow-up support by email.
Due to the scheduling of appointments, it is suggested that you keep your appointment time and date, although rescheduling is often possible. If you must cancel the appointment, a 48 hours notice must be given, in which case you will not be charged. If a 48 hours notice is not given, the full session fee will be charged. It is the responsibility of the client to arrive for the appointment on time. Please remember that the standard fees are applied from the time the session was scheduled to begin.
Telephone Counselling, Regressions and several other therapies are now available worldwide via Skype or conventional telephone connection and can be paid for via Paypal. Please give us a call or email us for details.
