*everything discussed in session is confidential and may not be revealed to anyone without your written permission, except where disclosure is required by law.
At first, we provide you with a 1 ½ to 2-hour session, towards the end of this session we ask your 'system' (consciousness, day-to-day, and subconscious in other dimensions) how many sessions they will need to accomplish their goals. The spontaneous answer is often accurate and ranges from 2-6 or 8 sessions. However, if you feel that you need or want more sessions, we will respect your decision and provide them.
This is a process; it is like peeling the layers of an onion but more freeform. We will use a subjective number score (1 to 10) to measure how you feel as we move towards the desired outcome.We also use the analogy of starving birdies in a nest which is; when you feed one or two hungry birds in a nest the others sensing food would chirp louder. So each session can bring up the next item to explore and resolve until all are dealt with. Some clients get to their 10 quickly and after 2 months, report that they still feel at peace. Some others take a study, still swift path, by conventional standards but each has the potential to reach the end.
Yes, if you are willing to stick with the program. We have been described as relentless in our helping clients journey to find their missing energy and by psychotherapy definition, this should be the norm. There is however ‘The Negative Dependency Syndrome’ which we named, where a client may seem to hold onto negative feelings and behaviors, because they may experience some small benefit from doing so, or because it is familiar.The Unconscious Equation which Eileen identified shows the illogical bottom line. E.G. “I hold onto fear in order to feel safe” “I hold onto anger in order to find peace”. Resolving these patterns helps the majority of clients achieve their goals.
Except for issues that are yet to present themselves it is usually best to resolve them immediately as they surface, although some clients choose to do their work with gaps in between. One client came for help with finding a partner, all went well and she got married. She came back because as a late-in-life parent, IVF was not working for her. She was at age 54 then, at age 56 her twins were born and they are now of High School age. She was the one who taught Eileen ‘Hug Therapy!’Sometimes, we have clients who have physical symptoms like MS (Multiple Sclerosis) or Cancer and they may need to undo their holding pattern even though their illness is already established. A while ago we had an MS patient who already in a wheelchair found the point where as a child after many moves due to being kidnapped imprinted the words ‘I want to Stop Moving’ and her body obliged. After undergoing therapy the MS was halted and she is currently a Therapist.We have seen so many recoveries that we believe working at the deep energy level can complement treatment such as healing emotional wounds from childhood, recovery from any emotional, mental, physical or spiritual disease. And we have a 12-month study 2018/2019 that is designed for continuous work on that belief.
Yes, if you feel some sort of first-time anxiety when venturing into a new journey this is by psychotherapy definition completely normal. And if it is in excess we will note it down and work on it.
Yes. Our Privacy terms are covered on the questionnaire that you will complete. We are required to keep information for a number of years, after which it is safely destroyed.
