As you know it is my passion to help women to feel happier and healthier. I believe the key to a happier and healthier life is Self-Care and Self-Love.

If you are like me, your family is very, very important to you. Women are caregivers and we often care and give more to others than we care for ourselves.  I know you can relate to this. Most women can. 

Many of us actually lose ourselves in caring for others with our lives being so busy and there is so much to do. I hear this every day. 

Women often experience overwhelm before they realize it is crucial to their health and their happiness that they care for themselves. Overwhelm can show up as despair, anxiety, depression, or it can manifest as aches and pains, discomfort, imbalances, and dis-ease in our physical bodies and our emotional beings. 

Some women experience mood swings, weight loss or gain, irritable bowel syndrome, while others simply feel unwell or worry about their own health.  

I want to let you know all of these feeling and symptoms are common, but not normal.  

If you are experiencing any of these things or if your gut is telling you to find a new way to deal with your busy life, then please accept this invitation to join me and other like-minded women to a full-day workshop I’m holding on March 5th.  

In a hurry? Click here

My friend Susan Krautter and I have created a wonderful day just for you. It will be filled with us sharing invaluable information you can take home so you can begin to care for yourself like you may not have ever done before.

Susan is an RN who has been helping women for decades, all over the globe, to feel happier and healthier by balancing hormones naturally. Susan’s energy and positive approach to wellness is like a breath of fresh air. 

With the practical and easy steps Susan shares at this workshop you will have the tools to begin to take charge of your own health. She will help you determine if you have a hormone imbalance and what is the next step for you. Either way, you will understand what is necessary for good hormone health and why it is important to your future health and happiness.

So, with a cup of tea or coffee you will enjoy a morning of self-discover with Susan. 

At noon we will take a break and enjoy a light lunch of soup and salad. This will be a perfect time to chat and get to know each other.

After lunch I will take you on a journey to discover how stress can affect your health and happiness. I am a therapist who helps women to let go of old emotional hurts and limiting beliefs so they can live the life they dream of. 

Did you know that stress can cause imbalances in your physical self?  Emotional hurts effect our cells.  By letting go of old emotional pain you can change your cellular memories and heal from the inside out. 

I will teach you specific breathing techniques you can practice at home to help you in stressful moments and when you are taking quality time for yourself. We will discuss the importance of self-love, chakra balancing and relaxation. 

After our discussion, I will invite you to enjoy a group guided relaxation and chakra hormone balancing session.

This full-day workshop promises to deliver a ton of valuable information you can use to help reclaim your health from a body, mind and spiritual perspective.

You will also take home with you:

  • A Writing Journal
  • A relaxation audio recording CD
  • Blissful Bath Salts & Joy Body Spritz

I hope you will join us for this special day of self-discovery.

I look forward to seeing you soon.

P.S. I hear women of all ages tell me they don’t have to be concerned about hormone health. I find this an interesting statement.  Women at all ages and stages need hormones. 

Balanced hormones are crucial for fertility, pregnancy, and menopause as well as for healthy breasts, healthy bones, and strong vascular health.  Balanced hormones are even important for emotion health, happy relationships and sexual satisfaction. 

These are just a few things that pop into my head.  We all know women who have experienced the above health challenges.  I was surprised when I was finding out all about ‘The Change’ as my older sister was beginning to experience hot flashes and night sweats.  As I researched, I found out that I also had symptoms that indicated I was experiencing some hormone imbalances.  I’m so happy that I was able to resolve those imbalances before I began hot flashing.  

Did you know imbalances may take a long time to manifest into a symptom that needs to be urgently addressed?  What you are doing today is setting the stage for your health 10 years from now.

So come join us for this important workshop to find out what you need to know about your hormones and dealing with stress.

How to Release Past Trauma and Emotional Hurts

You know what?  As a clinical hypnotherapist I am totally blown away by the common denominator in many of my clients.

Feelings of not living fully, not living authentically and feeling as though they do not have a voice.

I hear these statements every day.

Last week a 65 year old client came to me seeking to let go of childhood trauma.

This woman has been afraid her whole life. 

It is her greatest desire to finally have the courage to travel, have FUN and enjoy her life!

Another woman I’m working with is seeking peace so she can sleep.  She has never been able to sleep comfortably or soundly.

When she was just 2 years old someone rolled over onto her while she slept.  She woke up terrified and this has stayed with her all these years.

She made a decision way back then  – it is not safe to sleep!

This is powerful!

We were able to resolve this traumatic event for her through hypnotherapy and today she is thrilled, she is able to drift into a deep and restful sleep without taking drugs to knock her out!

Many of these women have experienced childhood abuse, leaving them with untreated PTSD,  Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.

PTSD has many origins and degrees. Untreated and unrecognized these emotional traumas often have significant effects years later.

What I notice in my office is that many of these women are experiencing symptoms of hormone imbalances.  They may have hot flashes, sore breasts, incontinence, anxiety, fibromyalgia, arthritis, even cancer.

I see this pattern over and over; I should not be surprised.

Actually, I’m not so much surprised, I’m shocked at how many adults suffer silently in the memories of trauma.  They didn’t have a voice when these events occurred and they have long ago stored those memories, yet the emotional attachment to these events are affecting them to this day or until they are able to let them go.

Hypnosis is a powerful tool which allows my clients to release the emotional attachment to the tragedy so they can live happier and freer lives.

I have noticed often these unprocessed feeling are put aside and minimized.  I have heard clients try to smooth over their emotional hurts by saying things like, “They didn’t mean to hurt me, they didn’t know I was scared, other people have experienced so much more…”

I explain to my clients that when they arrived here as beautiful, perfect infants they began to learn about life and their world.  Who were their teachers?  Mom and Dad, grandparents, aunts, uncles, and siblings and all the other people in their small world were their teachers.

From infancy to the age of six, I explain, they were in a waking trance.   They were like little sponges, taking it all in.  The analytic, logical conscious mind was not even developed, so what they heard and saw they took as truth.

They were perceiving life through innocent eyes. 

If they heard, “You are bad!”, or “You are stupid!”, they believe exactly that.

As a little person, all this information was stored to be used later in life.  This is how and when we begin to develop our belief system.

Imagine what happens when abuse or trauma plays a part in our young lives.

It would easily break my heart to hear such travesties, but I know if they are sitting in my office I have a great opportunity to help them let go of these emotional hurts for the first time in their lives.

Many of my clients are 40, 50, and even 60 years old and they deeply desire freedom.

Emotional freedom! 

I can’t tell you how rewarding it is for me to see my clients’ blossom and to finally take charge of the direction of their lives.  There is no greater joy than to guide another person to find their own personal freedom and happiness.

Call me today if you are looking for your gateway to freedom!

The Hidden Ramifications of Stress And What To Do About It

Stress has become an issue for billions of people.

Our lives have become very fast paced.  We are connected 24/7.

Internet, media, Facebook and other social media platforms, and cellphones have a tight grip on us and some might even feel that grip tightening around our necks!

We have pressures from all directions.

It is no longer just important to have food, shelter and love.  We believe we must have more, do more and be more.  There seems to be little balance between work and play.

Most families depend on two incomes to financially meet their needs.  Adults become burdened with life’s pressures and often experience overwhelm and stress.  Our busy lifestyle has even affected the children; education, sports, and extra-curricular activities allow little time to wind down.

It is difficult to find the person who is not stressed!

He or she would stand out and might even be criticized for being selfish because they prioritize ‘down time’.  The relaxed person knows it is important to step back and let go.

I’m sure there are many people like this, but there are far more who can relate to dreaming of getting off their ‘roller coaster life’ or escaping completely-if even just for a day or a few hours.

Sound familiar?  Maybe you completely understand what I’m talking about.

No downtime, no time to relax, no time to regroup or catch your breath!

I’ve been there, and maybe you also have experienced the desire of needing to find a way to create ‘you’ time.

Many of us spend our days juggling our many ‘hats’.  We have jobs, careers, homes, significant others, older parents, children and grandchildren.  We tend to be dog walkers, house keepers, cooks and chauffeurs.

Often we can look at our week and realize we have not even stopped once to tend to our own needs.

Many women experience frustration, guilt and anger, which can lead to depression and anxiety due to continuous stress.

I hear women tell me every day of how their stress is affecting them:  fatigue, sleepless nights, panic attacks, addictions of food or drugs, as well as imbalances in their physical bodies that may lead to pain, illness and dis-ease.

Unfortunately, we don’t always recognize this mind-body connection when dealing with weight issues, hormone imbalances, arthritis, lupis, IBS, diabetes, or even cancer, just to name a few.

Stress can affect all of the above issues.

Learning techniques to manage your stress is a huge step to creating balance in your life.  Learning ways to be mindful and to let go of old emotional hurts or limiting beliefs is a positive approach to living a happier and healthier life.

What can you do to begin to de-stress?

Here is a quick and easy exercise I teach all my clients.

Next time you find yourself needing to relax, try focusing on your breath.  Bring your attention to your breath and as you focus on your inhale and exhale, say the words “in” and “out” to yourself.

By simply noticing the rise and fall of your chest or abdomen, as you breathe, you allow your mind and body to begin to let go.

Practice this breathing technique for 3-5 minutes.

This exercise can be used practically anywhere. You can use it while you are driving, walking or even as you are standing in line at the store.

This is a perfect exercise to use before you go into a meeting, make an important phone call, or any situation that you want to be calm and collected.

You will probably notice that as you practice it will become easier and easier.  You are developing a relaxation technique and the more you practice the easier and quicker it will be to bring yourself into a calm and peaceful state of being.

Just as it takes patience and practice to learn to play tennis or anything new, this also improves when you practice often. I give my clients homework of practicing this simply breathing technique at least 3 times a day, more is better.

The goal is that this becomes an important part of your day to day personal care. When something comes up that requires you to have a calm, clear mind you will know exactly how to get there.

It’s important to be mindful of the hidden ramifications of stress – you may not even be aware that you’re under stress but if you relate to any of the conditions I mentioned in this article, the chances are good that it’s stress related.

For further stress-relieving techniques, hypnotherapy has been proven to be extremely effective. Call me for details!
