This work is a collaboration between you and myself. I don't have all the answers, but I trust that you do! It is my job to help you find them deep within and to learn to trust them again. It is my job to help you find the blocks that keep you from tuning in to what you already know. I will never force or push my beliefs or agendas on to you. This is your safe space to explore your truth and your inner world.
While I am trained and use a variety of commonly known techniques such as CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy), Psychodynamic Therapy, Mindfulness, and EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), my real tool is actually my own body, intuition, and abilities as an Empath. (read more about Empaths here.) Over the years of sitting with hurting people, I have become fine tuned to reading subtle energy clues, non-verbal communication, and patterns in your speech. In addition, energy techniques such as TFT (Thought Field Therapy), Pendulum/Muscle Testing, and visualization are incorporated.
EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing)
If you have not yet tried EMDR, you are in for a treat. This remains one of my all time favorite techniques and truly feels like magic each and every time! This technique stems from tapping into your body's dream tool for healing. We all move our eyes back and forth each night during REM sleep while we dream. (Yes, you dream, even if you don't remember.) Why do we dream about difficult things? It’s because our body is healing itself while we sleep. Your body is doing a form of exposure therapy on you while you rest. In addition, dreams are associated with the spiritual dimension. Information that comes through the use of EMDR often feels spiritual or inspired. EMDR works by targeting the body and the mind simultaneously and as a result is so much more powerful than regular talk therapy. I would love to show you just how powerful a technique this can be in freeing you to be the person you were made to be.
What is an "Empath"?
It is pretty common knowledge by now that our society is evolving to new levels of consciousness. As a result, people are being born with greater "sixth sense" abilities. The problem is, most parents can't relate and are either scared or clueless when their children exhibit early signs of giftedness. So now, we have a generation of more intuitive and psychic adults who have learned to hide and repress these abilities. Because these abilities are so inherent to who they are and to their purpose in this world, many problems develop as a result. People numb with addictive behaviors. Others get labeled as psychotic, autistic, or weird. Neytiri has a passion for finding and helping such people to embrace their true, amazing selves so that these gifts can shine in the world the way they were intended.
Thought Field Therapy
This technique has been around since the 1980's and is a form of acupressure (acupuncture without needles). Its' founder indicates that tapping the meridian points unblocks and balances the blocked flow of Gi or Chi. To me, this technique makes sense at a fundamental level. We all know that it is typical for one to wring their hands, clutch the chest, or cross arms when stressed or blocked. This series of tapping covers the main stress points we tend to stimulate unconsciously. Doing it on a conscious level is even more effective because we are telling the mind and body that it is ok to release on multiple levels. An example of using this technique would involve having the client identify an area of distress such as, "I'm so anxious I can't function". Focusing on this belief, while tapping the correct points on the body, usually results in the client reducing anxiety levels at least 5 points on a 10 point scale. Feel free to Google this technique for more information or come to a session for a walk through on how it might serve you best.
Muscle or pendulum testing is a way to connect with the intentions of the soul while bypassing the muddled agendas of the rational mind. It can be a fun and powerful way to save a lot of time in reaching your goals! This simple form of testing works on the concept that when you make a statement to the subconscious mind that it believes to be true, the muscles of the body become momentarily stronger while the opposite is true for a statement the subconscious believes to be untrue. These muscle changes can be tested in a variety of ways. I suggest you do an internet search if you want to find out the specifics or simply come to a session with me and I will be happy to explore this option with you. An example for good use of this in therapy is a time when a client was asked if she wanted to die. On a conscious level, the client was offended and defensive. She listed all the reasons she wanted to live. When muscle testing was used, she was confused and baffled when her body said yes; it had an unconscious death wish. Being able to bypass her conscious mind and identify this deeply shielded belief allowed her to save months of time and energy in therapy because she was then able to see how her many self-sabotaging behaviors like over consumption of alcohol, reckless sexual encounters, and overeating were indeed based off of an unconscious wish to die.
