I’ve been in practice since 2007 and am a full member of the British Society of Clinical Hypnosis, having studied hypnotherapy with the prestigious London College of Clinical Hypnosis and have trained with the Sedona Training Associates in Sedona, Arizona, under the guidance of Hale Dwoskin.
I’m also a qualified Hypnobirthing educator since 2008 holding regular classes for couples.
Other than one-to-one sessions, I regularly hold talks, workshops and have been a guest speaker at special events in Brighton and London.
A little bit about my story…
I first came across self-hypnosis more than fourteen years ago. I had just been released from the Israeli compulsory National Service after nearly two years, during which all I thought about and wished for was to be free to do what I wanted.
And so the time came, and I expected life to be ecstatic; I thought I’d be running around all day smiling, full of energy, creativity, passion for life – which would in turn embrace me and offer me adventures and exciting experiences… I thought I’d be finally free to express myself; my thoughts, my feelings, my ideas… finally, I was going to live my life to the full, on my own, just me and the big wide world…everything was just waiting for me…I was going to dance and sing in the streets, and the whole world was going to smile at me and welcome me into my new future…nothing was going to stop me!
Well…things didn’t turn out exactly like that.
And so, it became very clear to me it wasn’t actually the army service that was holding me back or stopping me from being who I wanted to be, I started to become more aware of what was really stopping me; which was really nothing but myself; my own negative thoughts, anger and other feelings, beliefs, past experiences and fear – lots of fear!
After understanding things of the past and the way they affected my ‘personality‘, I decided that they may have influenced me until now, but they need not determine my future.
Who or what is really stopping me from behaving completely differently the next day? Why couldn’t I just wake up and behave exactly as I would like myself to be?
I then came across a book about self hypnosis.
Having always had an interest in the mind, reality and the unlimited nature of it and the universe, I started reading the book and practicing its exercises.
It took a lot of practice, but I was very determined and motivated to see results; you could even say I was somewhat obsessed with this idea of freedom – there was nothing I wanted more or considered to be more important!
I was also very much convinced of this incredible power we have within us; after all, we do only use about 10 percent of our brain, don’t we? Well what does the other 90 percent do? I did not believe for a moment it’s there for no reason. Nature is always perfectly designed, purposeful and striving to evolve.
Additionally, I enjoyed these exercises, as they were relaxing and uplifting. They became a habit.
Gradually I was becoming aware of the fact that this person I wanted to be, I was subtly turning into.
In fact, I was surpassing any ideas of what I thought I’d be able to achieve… I was also discovering abilities and accessing information that have been unavailable to me before.
Perhaps, I was this person all along? Otherwise, why would I feel I wanted to be that ‘other’ person anyway? Perhaps that ‘person’ was the more developed ‘me’ just wanting to come out and be expressed…?
After some travelling, I ended up in London, and being very passionate about the subject, I went on to study and complete the Clinical Hypnotherapy Practitioner Dilploma at the London College of Clinical Hypnosis.
Discovering the Sedona Method® has taken things yet to a new level, helping me to finally break through and free myself of stubborn blocks that by then still seemed to reach only so far.
My personal freedom, self-awareness, development, happiness and contentment were now reaching new depths and heights, and it was an obvious step for me taking further Sedona Method training in order to share this incredible tool with others.
There is no argument about our mind being such an integral and powerful part of ourselves.
It always seemed strange to me that while learning many other subjects and gaining information about the world outside of us, we are not being taught how to properly use this most precious tool from a young age.
It’s through my own experience that I’m passionate about this work and empowering individuals; or rather helping them regain the power they’ve always had.
This journey of mine has not ended. It’s never-ending and I’m constantly learning. But I know the unlimited nature of us and the abilities we posses inside.
I realize that dreams of ours, feelings of wanting to be ‘more’ than we are; “better”, more powerful, more talented, or more of anything – are there so that we make the move to realise or become that, or even more accurately – to reveal it!
They are a sign for us – telling us about our true potential.
Our happiness is not dependent on anything. Our happiness is here for us to experience, right here and now.
