Due to the nature of what I do, many clients have different questions related to the therapies I use. Please take a look at some of the most frequently asked questions.
FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions
I am a therapist that uses a holistic approach by using different therapies. Meanwhile, I use the different therapies I could delve more deeply into the problem in order to solve it more effectively. By doing that I can understand the root of the problem, as many times you need to tackle the problem in different ways. Subsequently, I follow through with you in detail what is going on.
If the person has a problem they want to deal with, I can take a look at the root of the problem. With hypnotherapy, I can help you to overcome to it. With astrology, I can understand the patterns and influences in your life. Coaching provides a plan of action on how to deal with it ht problems and achieve results. Shamanic practices can provide relaxation and healing on an energetic level. I can mix according to your needs.
Simply contact me, briefly explain to me your problem. I will let you know what I can do, or what I advise how the session will go. Book a session and we can have an astrology session to understand better what are your patterns if advised. Also, we can go through an assessment to understand what is going on with you. After that, we can have a session of hypnotherapy, coaching or shamanic practice. Each case and each session are unique.
As I am a multidimensional therapist and coach, I can see, understand and explain the big picture. In many cases, someone who only does one therapy is limited to the restrictions of the same therapy. In case they can recommend you to another specialist, the other specialist will not be able to know the full details of each individual. Of course, if there are therapies or areas that I am not aware of, I’ll recommend you to another professional. Can be a GP, personal trainer, physiotherapist, nutritionist etc.
It is a process where you will try and overcome your weaknesses and magnify your strengths. Then this will allow you to be the best version of yourself possible. The importance of self-development is huge. It will allow you to overcome blocks that stop your life and enhance the strengths you already have. You will notice it by being happier, content and fulfilled. People around you will also note the difference as it will bring more meaning relationships to your life.
There is an initial assessment where I will ask you some questions. According to the answers, we will then start the session. All you need to do is relax and follow my voice. You will be in a profoundly relaxed state yet aware of everything. In that state, you are more susceptible to POSITIVE affirmations. Hypnotherapy can be provide a quicker resolution of some situations that with other therapies could take longer. Be aware that each case is individual.
Many clients and friends before their first session ask me how does it feel like. You will feel very relaxed like you are in deep meditation but with therapeutic purposes. The most simple way to explain it is: you will feel like the first 5 seconds after you wake up, or the last 5 seconds before you go to sleep. It is a very relaxed state. The difference is that instead of lasting 5 seconds it will last for much longer, normally the almost the length of the session.
Hypnosis is used for entertainment whilst hypnotherapy is used for therapeutic practices. Hypnotherapy is used by a qualified, licensed and insure professional like me to help to treat different conditions. The similarities are the relaxation state that both provide but with completely different goals.
90% of our mind is in the subconscious and unconscious (learned behaviours, habits, memories that we have forgotten etc). Hypnotherapy takes you to a deep relaxation state normally called Alpha or Theta (brain waves), where we work on those learned behaviours and access memories that cause us damage today. By releasing what harms us in this state we can then unblock what stops us.
Yes, hypnotherapy is safe and should only be done by qualified, certified and insured professionals like me. It is important to understand that hypnotherapy can act quicker than other therapies. Nonetheless, it is important to notice that hypnotherapy, just like many other therapies, might take its time. This happens especially when there are deeply rooted habits, and that is why combining with other therapies that I offer can be important.
Yes, you are. With a qualified, certified and insured hypnotherapist like me, you are always in control. Imagine me as a tour guide and security guard, where I help you to uncover parts of you that need to be uncovered. Your mind when in a relaxed state is more prepared to accept positive suggestion and guidance than negative. My role is to make sure that I bring the positive out of you.
My sessions last one hour if, in person, that normally includes some time to discuss the matter at hand. I have been doing online sessions for over a year in the UK and overseas. With COVID when I do online sessions they can last up to 75 minutes.
A coach is someone that provides you with tools for you to reach your goals. Someone that hears you, helps you prioritize what is important in your life. Helps you to find out your own path. The path that your soul wants for your life. It is there to motivate you, but most importantly to teach you how to motivate yourself. A coach will help you analyse your current situation and do a SWOT analysis. Then helps you to set up a plan for you to improve your life.
The main difference is that coaching focus on the present and the future. Counseling tends to focus on the past. Coaching helps you to achieve your goals whilst counseling focus on their problems and talking about them.
Coaching focus on the here and now, it has a teaching element. Teaching has an aspect of acquiring new knowledge but focuses on the teacher. Coaching focus on develop existing knowledge and refining it. Asking questions is key in coaching so the coach will know what do you need in your life. A coach helps you to help yourself. Helps you to define priorities and action plans according to what you need.
Everyone in life has times that they feel lost. We all have different priorities and different experiences. If you want someone to be able to help you to help yourself, coaching is for you. The choices are always yours, but a coach will understand where you are and will help you to take control of your life.
Let’s say you have a problem that needs to be solved or a situation that affects your life. With the therapies that I do, you can get to the root of the problem or and I help you to solve it. Coaching provides the planning, motivation and action plan that will allow you to follow through the changes you want to implement in your life.
It provides you with a clear picture being the bridge between where you are and where you want to be. It motivates you, creating self-esteem and confidence by creating a structure for you to work on aspects of your life that need to be worked on. Life coaching helps you to create strategies and techniques so you have better usage of your time.
Astrology is the study of planets of our solar system, around the different constellations which will have an influence on you. It might be a concept hard to understand but I’ll give you a scientific example. The moon is a “satellite” around Earth, therefore it’s size is quite small. Nonetheless, it influences water on the planet like tides and even the crime rate. The crime rate is higher on the full moon according to studies. So imagine what a planet like Jupiter (28 times bigger than Earth) can do.
Imagine at the time of your birth that a photo is taken from the skies and gives an exact position of the planets. It is a tool, a chart, that allows you to understand what are your strengths and weaknesses, patterns in your life that you have to work on. It gives you an understanding of yourself from a different, yet very effective point of view. There are hundreds of millions of combinations for a Natal Chart
Stars signs, in a technical way, are the position of Earth around the sun in regards to 12 constellations. The Earth takes one year to go around the sun, Ie. If you are born on the 7th of September, the position of Earth in relation to the Sun will be on the Virgo conversation, therefore you are a Virgo. Please note that there are more than 10 planets and asteroids that revolve around the sun. Your star sign is just a very small part.
Many people see astrology as horoscopes. That couldn’t be further from the truth. Mainstream media has “demonized” astrology for years. For example, if you are a Capricorn and you see the weekly horoscope something will happen for all Capricorns in the world. That is the same concept that if you are oriental you must know kung fu… it’s ridiculous. Astrology is over 2,500 years old and there has been proof that by correlating events and individual natal charts that it is very accurate. It is an art and a science. Just because science can’t explain it doesn’t mean it is not accurate. Ie: a mobile phone 150 years ago would be considered witchcraft.
As mentioned previously astrology is very accurate understanding your strengths, weaknesses and patterns. If you have a deeper knowledge of yourself you then bring to light areas that need improvement and areas you’re strong at. By analysing that setup, I can help you to devise strategies and find answers for your questions. The more you know yourself and the more you understand your patterns, the easier it is for you to create a happier and more fulfilling life.
A natal chart is an in-depth print of who you are and what are your strengths and it is individual. A horoscope is a very generalized view of each star sign at a certain moment.
If you feel lost, if you need guidance or if you want to know more about your past, present and future situation, astrology can certainly help. Astrology can help discover parts of you that you might not be aware of. It can give you in-depth knowledge from areas of your life like: work, career, relationships with parents, love relationships, belief system, inner perceptions, money, childhood, health etc
Yes, it can. We are very complex in our nature and each chart is unique to the person. In life, we have genetics, experience, and free that alongside the chart affect our decisions in life. With astrology, I can provide an understanding of past and present situations only with your chart and provide future trends. I don’t use the word forecast as it is too restricted as we have our experiences, genetics and free will.
Shamanic practices are ancient spiritual practices that use a shaman to help the patient. From my perspective, a shaman is someone who holds a space for the person to reach the inner potential of their spirit. I like to work with the patient’s energies in order to balance them. Shamanism varies depending on the different schools.
As a shaman, I hold a space where myself and the patient are 100% comfortable. The patient lies in a massage table and with my concentration and ability to manage my energy, I examine the patient’s body by simply hoovering the hands across his body. I can sense areas of the body that need balance and focus the energy in those areas. Please note that the energy does not come from me. It comes from a higher source that has different names according to your belief. Doctors like Joe Dispenza have researched this concept in depth through scientific research. This is 100% non-intrusive.
A shamanic journey so-called soul retrieval is when part of your soul leaves the body. Normally when you have traumas you feel that sometimes a part of you dies. S shaman will help you to reach that part of you lost in the path. I identify this technique in being similar to regression therapy. In both of them, you are in an altered state of consciousness but a shamanic journey has different aspects like working with power animals. To be honest, from experience both options are equally effective, it depends on what the patient resonates more with.
No, it doesn’t. It is all done through the connection between the patient and the Shaman. There are places in South America where you do that to reach different realms of consciousness with the use of ayahuasca where space is held by a Shaman. I do not use in my practice any of that. I don’t judge the use of Ayahuasca either but it is not legal in the majority of countries in the world.
It is not a religion but a spiritual practice. Shamanism is related to the connection between man and nature so it explores that aspect. It is open to all creeds and faiths.
There are some similarities between certain aspects of Shamanism and Reiki. This is similar to Reiki as it balances and harmonizes energy centres in your body often called chakras. There is much research about the chakras as all living creatures have them. Humans have 7 main chakras that regulate different parts of our life and being. With Shamanic Healing I can harmonize and balance them. As a Reiki practitioner as well, I found that Shamanic Healing can be more effective. The techniques in certain ways overlap.
