Q. Can I book a session or tarot reading if I live in another country? 

Yes absolutely! I’ve worked with clients based in China, Philippines, Cambodia, United Kingdom and USA. I'm from Australia but I'm currently living in Scotland and simply factor in the time zone difference when scheduling client sessions.  

Q. You don't look like a traditional therapist, what are your qualifications?

When you compare my free-spirited tattooed appearance to traditional psychoanalysts and psychologists, no doubt there will be a difference! But my tattoos are a reflection of my life journey, spiritual and cultural beliefs. 

I am have a Bachelor's degree in Integrative Psychotherapy and Counselling with a Distinction-grade average. In addition, I have several years of experience in spiritual and emotional counselling coaching, and hold various qualifications in hypnotherapy, shamanic energy healing and past life regression therapy.

Q. Is everyone the right candidate for hypnosis and regression therapy? 

If you have Bipolar Disorder, Dissociative Identity Disorder, Manic Disorder, Schizophrenia Disorder, Psychosis or try to attend your session under the influence of drugs or alcohol, you are not the right candidate for hypnosis and past life regression due to the impairment of psychological functioning. If you have following the psychological conditions outlined and wish to receive these services, please reach out to your  psychiatrist and ask for written confirmation that past life regression / hypnosis is appropriate and safe for you to undertake. If I am provided with written consent from your leading mental health practitioner, I will happily discuss the options available to you. 

Q. What if I do something embarrassing? Is hypnosis like mind control? Will you make me cluck like a chicken?

No, no, and no! Hypnosis will not force you to reveal any deep dark secrets you may be keeping nor make you embarrass yourself in anyway shape or form. Most importantly, hypnosis cannot make you believe, say, or do anything that goes beyond your moral compass, personal boundaries, and belief systems.

For example: I cannot hypnotise you to change your religious beliefs or commit a crime.

Hollywood and talent shows are often to blame for the misconstrued comical and sinister light that is cast on hypnosis. Hypnosis is not mind-control instead it is a purposeful set of suggestions and instructions that are designed to bypass the logical ‘conscious’ mind and speak directly the ‘subconscious’ mind where memories, universal archetypes, and patterns of thoughts and behaviours are stored.

Q. Can everyone be hypnotised? What happens if I cannot be hypnotised?

Research conducted over the years has concluded 90-95% of people can be hypnotised to varying degrees. The degree of hypnosis an individual can experience depends on various factors e.g., psychological, psychosocial, emotional, and physical conditions.

The estimated 5-10% of people that cannot be hypnotised is a result of certain psychological conditions including Bipolar Disorder, Dissociative Identity Disorder, Manic Disorder, Schizophrenia Disorder etc., and subconscious defences mechanisms (internal blocks) that stem from trauma, trust issues, cultural and religious beliefs, and so on.

While highly successful, proven, cutting-edge techniques are utilized during your hypnosis session and past life regression session, no guarantee of any kind whatsoever is implied, promised, or bestowed, and no refund will be given in the case of an unsuccessful hypnotherapy or past life regression session. It is important to understand that hypnosis and past life regression outcomes will differ in outcomes for each individual, and for some 2-3 sessions may be required to induce a deep state of hypnosis as therapeutic relationship develops, your feelings of safety increase, and your subconscious blocks (defences) begin to lower. Yet for others, one session will invoke a powerful hypnosis experience!

Q. How do I know if I’m making it up during my past life regression? Will you influence what I see, or use leading verbal ques?

When you enter into a deep hypnotic state, it is almost impossible to conjure an entire ‘past life story’ in your mind with specific details including who, what, when, why, and how. Think of it like this, you cannot force yourself to dream of something and control what happens in the dream narrative (unless of course you can lucid dream), and past life regression works very similar to this process. The main difference being that as your therapist, I am asking open-ended questions and guide you through the process using purposeful instruction from the beginning to end of your past life regression or hypnotherapy session.

In past life regression sessions, I cannot influence what you see or experience when recalling a past life nor do I make suggestions or use leading verbal ques. However, during a guided hypnosis session a specific intent and therapeutic purpose is agreed upon between us e.g., reduce anxiety, easing pain, connecting with your spiritual energy, increasing self-esteem etc., and a tailored hypnotic script is used to improve your daily functioning and to address your primary concern.

Essentially, my role as your therapist is to create an authentic therapeutic experience using highly effective hypnotic techniques so you have a successful hypnosis or past life regression session!

Q. I don’t think I can be hypnotised and what if I fall asleep?

Hypnosis is not meditation therefore, you will not fall asleep because you remain consciously and instinctively alert and aware of your surrounds. In a hypnotic state you are being guided with specific instructions whether it is for a past life regression session or hypnotherapy session, and will often be asked to answer questions, describe what you are seeing, what is holding you back in life etc.,

If you convince yourself (plant the seed in your mind) that you cannot be hypnotised, doubt the entire process of hypnosis, and continually question whether what you are seeing is real or accurate during a past life regression session, then I almost guarantee you will have a disappointing and unsuccessful hypnotic or regression experience. Remember, your mind is extremely powerful and has the potential to block you completely from trusting the process and immersing yourself fully in the experience if you allow it to.

Q. Will my past life regression or hypnotherapy session be recorded and if so, do you own the footage? 

On your “Client Consent Form” for Past Life Regression and Hypnotherapy, I clearly outline the client consent waiver, legal release, medical release, and electronic and case study permission, so please read this before booking a session. 

During a past life regression 1:1 in-person session and past life regression group in-person and online sessions, I may record snippets of the session for commercial use e.g., uploading the audio or video recording on my website, social media platforms, etc., I will also forward these snippets from your session to you, if requested and if technology allows (sometimes Zoom recordings will not upload properly due to technical difficulties).

In regard to sharing the details from your past life regression, as stated in the client consent form, I own the audio, written, and video recordings from your session and hold the right to its distribution. I will always uphold a strict level of client confidentiality and will never share your real name or any other identifying information (if you are visible in the video recording, I will blur your identity completely) that is my duty of care and promise to you.

Q. Do you offer psychological assessments and formal psychological diagnosis? 

If you are seeking a psychological assessment or support for complex trauma or severe psychological disorders, I cannot provide these services to you at this time. As a psychotherapist I am solely trained to make “informal” diagnoses in accordance to the DSM5 criteria and recommend reaching out to your local healthcare provider for a psychiatric referral and ongoing psychological support team services.
