from awareness to transformation… navigating the healing journey

I believe that everyone holds the key to their own healing and optimum well-being. I join clients on intensely emotional and transformational journeys with life-changing results. No matter how skilled or experienced we may be as therapists, the role we play in our clients’ healing journeys is always secondary to their active involvement in his or her own healing experience.

As a therapist with years of experience, I do not ‘heal’ my clients. I guide clients to bring buried trauma to their awareness or share an emotional breakthrough with emotional and spiritual support. Even though I guide the client’s path towards healing, it is only ever the client who is the true healer. I provide the tools and direction, but it is the client who ultimately decides how to use my offerings.

The human healing journey can be simplified into four main experiences or stages:


The first stage of the healing journey is when awareness or identification occurs. This could be a truth about a past event or might even be an epic breakthrough. Awareness means that something very important that has been buried in our psyche or energetic body is illuminated and cast into our awareness in a new light.


Once awareness has presented itself, it requires processing. The processing stage is when the awareness is pulled apart and dug into emotionally, mentally and spiritually. Processing can be painful, difficult and emotional. Ultimately, it usually results in feelings of relief and acceptance and eventually profound wisdom is derived. Mindful and self-love activities such as meditation, music, art therapy, journaling and connecting with nature can greatly help to speed up this stage.


It is during the processing stage that integration can begin occurring. This is when we take the wisdom being derived from the processing stage and draw it deep within ourselves. Allowing it to sink into us on a soul level and permeate all our physical, emotional, psychological and spiritual layers, to begin rebuilding us from within. The integration stage helps us to create acceptance and release from the experience itself with the understanding and wisdom gained from the experience.


Finally, once we have fully integrated the wisdom, true transformation can occur. We have released ourselves from the trauma and pain and transformed it into something positive from which we are able to grow and evolve. New belief systems are formed, old patterns are reprogrammed, addictions are conquered, self-limitations are released and a new world of possibility that was once closed, becomes open. Essentially, it’s a rebirth from your own emotional ashes. This is when we hear stories of previously broken individuals achieving extraordinary things.

Healing is a journey

Healing is only ever about ‘the journey’. While our tools of choice may be different (whether reiki, kinesiology, crystals or other modality), as energy therapists we are unified in the goal of providing maximum support, enlightenment, strength, courage, understanding and acceptance on our clients’ healing paths. Only by holding this role sacred can we truly empower each and every client enabling him or her to navigate their own unique healing journey until their final, breathtaking transformation. Our role is indeed crucial, although it is the client who ultimately leads the way.
