HypnoFertility ™. Since 2006, I have used hypnotherapy and emotional freedom technique(EFT) to help couples eliminate subconscious beliefs and emotional blocks to conceiving. When there is no known medical reason for the failure to conceive, I have found these techniques are very effective in allowing the couple to conceive within a very short time.
Sometimes the stress of trying to to start a family takes a toll on the relationship and intimacy. Love making becomes a child making act governed by timing etc. When couples learn simple reframing techniques and self hypnosis, they are able to reclaim their relationship and put the love back in love making.
For couples using medical interventions to help them conceive, EFT, self-hypnosis and visualization have been statistically proven to aid in the success rate of these procedures.
Postpartum Counseling. The adjustment to having a new baby in the home is sometimes hard for the parents and other children.
My past experience as a postpartum doula and my skill as a children’s counselor provide me with the expertise and insight to ease you or a family member through this period.
I have also helped couples process the feelings about a difficult birth experience or grief over the loss of a child through miscarriage or in the first year of life.
Body-Mind Birth Preparation. I have been teaching self- hypnosis to mothers preparing for labor and birth for over 10 years. Whether you choose to birth your baby at home, or in a high tech hospital setting, I can help you to increase the chance of a relaxed and pleasant birth. Through the use of hypnotherapy and EFT you can resolve emotional issues around birthing and parenting. You will become skilled in calming your mind and body through self hypnosis and visualization. Just as athletes use these techniques to increase the chances of success in sports, so mothers are finding these techniques help in birthing. Imagine a sensual, spiritual , peak birthing experience for mother, partner and baby. Some mothers have described birth as "orgasmic". That is because during a natural, uninterrupted birth the mother's body produces the same bliss hormones that are produced during the act of love making. Just as these hormones do not kick in during every sexual encounter due to mood, ambiance, and sense of trust and safety -so it is with birth. You can have an orgasmic, sensual or spiritual birth experience when you feel safe, supported and are able to mentally go within and trust your birthing body. That is the goal of Love and Light's Body-Mind Birth Preparation.
Children’s Counseling. As an educator for more than thirty years, I have an understanding of the thinking of child and I know how a child processes experiences. Sometimes children misunderstand events or interactions with adults or other children in the home or at school. These misunderstandings can become the basis of core beliefs about himself or herself that will influence his or her emotional well being. Many adult problems were childhood problems that were never recognized or dealt with. Sadness, anger or misbehavior are a normal part of a child’s learning and development. However, if these reactions seem to be more prominent in your child, they are red flags that your child is developing a core belief about him or herself that is neither true or helpful. Often it does not take many sessions to help a child reinterpret life's experiences and learn practical coping skills.
