Sheela, what kind of trainings have you completed?
My training in hypnosis, regression therapy and spiritual regression were completed with Past Life Regression Academy UK between 2011 to 2013. I have also attended a certification course with NeuroLeadership Institute US to learn about brain-based coaching techniques to cater for clients who prefer the left-brain approach. In addition, I am at level II in Reiki following the Usui tradition. My initial professional training was in law and I practiced for a couple of years before switching to the recruiting field, and eventually into complementary therapy work. In 2016, I completed a training course in Akashic Record Consultation with Ernesto Ortiz.
Why did you take up regression therapy?
Some years back, I used hypnosis as a healing tool to cope with some health challenges. That experience opened me up to the world of complementary therapy, including regression therapy and spiritual regression. I became curious about the techniques involved and decided to learn them. Now, I use various mind-body-spirit based therapies to help others understand their mental, emotional and spiritual landscape.
Is hypnosis or regression therapy safe?
Yes. I have used all the techniques I offer on myself, my family members, friends and many clients safely and effectively. If you are worried about something specific with regards to the process, please write in to me and I will be happy to explain further.
Will I lose control during the hypnosis session?
No, I have not seen any client lose control, and neither have I lost control whenever I was in trance. In fact, sometimes clients are reluctant to come out of a session because they want to enjoy the deep relaxation a little bit longer:)
What will happen if I cannot be hypnotised?
Honestly, we wouldn't know until you have tried it out. If one way doesn't work, I will try a different way. And, if that doesn't work either, I will use other methods to find out what approach can be of help to you.
Will I see immediate results after the sessions?
That depends. Some clients do feel an immediate difference when they come out of a session, and some feel on-going transformation for a few days, weeks or even months. I have had a few clients who told me of positive changes still taking place a year after their session. So, just be aware that you will be working with your mind, and your mind is never set or locked in one position. It's always evolving and the idea is—in the long run—to evolve in the best possible direction for you. How and when it will happen truly depends on how ready and open you are for self-transformation in the first place. Please read my clients’ testimonials here, they know the session impact best.
How many sessions would I need? This varies with the methods used and your objectives. For regression therapy, I have had clients who did one session and benefitted greatly to clients who do a few in quick succession to those do once a year. I generally do not prescribe the number of sessions as I believe the client should be the one deciding that based on their needs. However, as a general guideline, dealing with one specific issue may take between 2-3 sessions. The first session is somewhat like an orientation session where the client learns to decipher and build on his/her inner landscape. Follow-up session often go quicker and deeper as the client gets more comfortable navigating his/her subconscious mind. Perhaps, I should state here that I do not offer quick fixes and self-accountability on the part of the client will be encouraged.
Have you ever been unsuccessful in getting clients into trance? I have stopped one session midway when the client's response was outside the usual parameters. In another session, a client got up from trance to answer the doorbell. He had forgotten about a package delivery. But then again, I have dealt with clients needing urgent help—using hypnosis—in a bar, at a gym, after an accident, etc. All these goes to show only you can allow yourself to go into hypnosis. The therapist's job is to facilitate that inner journey. All the modalities I practice are merely tools but what makes these tools become remarkable are the secret ingredients you put into the session—an open mind, a curious heart and the desire to connect with your inner wisdom. After that, anything is pretty much possible.
Can I mix and match the sessions?
Yes. All the methods I practice complement one another. In fact, I have had clients who have used a combination of coaching, hypnosis and/or regression therapy to reach their objectives.
Do I have to believe in past lives to do regression therapy? Do I need to believe in angels and all those esoteric stuff?
No and no. But don't be surprised if your Loved Ones, Guides and Angels do turn up:)
I'm a skeptic. What if I don't go anywhere during the regression? I used to be a skeptic myself. What helped? The willingness to try something new, and an open mind to receive and process information. It definitely gets easier with practice.
What can I do to prepare myself before a session?
Ideally, I would like to work with you when you are feeling energised. As such, it is helpful to refrain from recreational drugs and alcohol at least 36 hours before the session start. Also, try to keep the after-session hours free for self-contemplation and some nourishing activity.
Can I bring my child for hypnosis or regression?
I do work with children but this is dependent on the matter at hand, and only with both parents’ express permission. Kindly write in with your circumstances and we will take it from there.
Are there individuals you do not take on as clients?
Yes. If a person is under heavy medication or has been diagnosed with mental illness, or has serious physical medical issues, I would have to decline. With depression, it is sometimes difficult to draw the line. If you are going through a down phase and feeling unsure, contact me for an obligation-free consultation and we will figure out a way to get you some form of assistance, be it from me or someone else I recommend.
