In May 2013, I flew from Sydney to Scottsdale, Arizona to train in a Master Facilitator program, designed by Blair Singer. The purpose of me training to be a Master Facilitator was born out of my burning desire to help individuals in a group setting, work through mental and emotional pain in their life, wherever that pain originated.
Very much inspired by the writings of Canadian storyteller, Oriah Mountain Dreamer and in the words of her very special poem, The Invitation, I felt her speak to my true spirit,
“It doesn’t interest me what you do for a living. I want to know what you ache for and if you dare to dream of meeting your heart’s longing…”
As twenty-nine of us took that week-long 16-hour a day program, I experienced the full range of human emotions as Blair tested and challenged our ability to access ALL emotions. His belief was that we could not facilitate another human being’s growth and healing without the courage and strength to test our own.
It was one of the most exhausting, exhilarating and profound weeks of my life. By the time the week was up, I knew the people I wanted to serve were individuals with family issues and that I’d help them through the healing work we’d do together.
One of the participants had asked me, “What’s your niche, what do you want to bring to people you help?” When I responded, “I want to bring back joy to people’s lives”, she commented, “You can’t sell joy, who would buy a program for joy?” I supposed I was a little wounded by her remark, but it ironically made me all-the-more determined to do whatever it took to bring precisely that to the lives of others.
I trained in modalities like coaching and hypnotherapy, communication from the stage and master facilitation that would elevate my skills to facilitate change in their lives, using my ability to connect deeply, build rapport and trust, illuminate my clients’ understanding of their brain which held conscious and subconscious patterns of thoughts, beliefs and behaviours that could be changed.
Living in pain and feeling stuck can be caused by staying in old stories from the past that no longer serve you.
Hypnotherapy and Coaching are a powerful duo that access your conscious and subconscious minds and take you out of the pain….
My mission is to assist as many people as I can to heal themselves and find their own secret to peaceful, joyful and loving relationships. I cannot heal you. I am telling you that you heal yourself. I am here to facilitate that change that will bring you back to JOY.
