I combine three highly-effective complementary therapeutic techniques. The combination of EFT, Hypnosis, and Body/Mind Connection work magically. EFT or Emotional Freedom Technique (www.EmoFree.com) involves “tapping” on energy meridians to release accumulated negative energy in the body. The following emotions can result in energy blockages: fear, anger, regret, resentment, or any other kind of life challenges. Tapping is also a great tool to remove cravings, manage pain, and grief. I believe these symptoms represent trapped “emotions” inside our body. When you “tap” you are, in essence “talking” or “wording out” the negative feelings and thoughts, which in turn releases them. Another way of understanding it is the age-old Chinese philosophy that energy flows through the body like a river or stream; negative thinking, or negative energy can collect in the body like a dam stops the water from flowing. A blockage in the body is the root of disease. Tapping breaks the dam and allows energy to flow freely again. This is where healing begins. We can call it an “acupuncture of emotions” without needles.

The second technique is Hypnosis. Deep relaxation, opening the subconscious mind to what I call “our filing system,” past the “critical factor” of the conscious mind which we all are born with. All the events and memories from our lives, and the emotions tied to them can get trapped. EFT releases the negative emotions, which is then followed by hypnosis. Here we replace old files with new ones, which is a very powerful combination.

The third modality is Body/ Mind Connection through inner child. The emotions you experience are triggers of an old memory which your body reacts to. Example: Just close your eyes, and think of a lemon, juicy and sour. Feel it, smell it, bite into it, and taste it. What happens? Your body reacts with producing more saliva with the memory of the taste of a lemon. This is how our body (liver, kidney, spleen, heart, etc.) reacts to past memories and emotions. The Body/Mind Connection comes in handy here, offering a path to finding, recognizing, acknowledging, and letting go.

You will learn self hypnosis, sleep hypnosis, connecting with your inner child and EFT when you are done with me, so you can manage your upcoming challenges on your own. These are very powerful tools to keep in your tool box to discipline your mind.

How does your healing modality work?
I work with three complimentary therapeutic modalities synergistically for greater success. EFT clears away negative energy blockages, hypnosis imbeds positive messages in the subconscious while under a deeply relaxed and open state of mind, and the body/mind connection through inner child connects with past emotional triggers allowing unresolved emotional issues to be released.

Hypnosis and EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) with the conjunction of Inner Child (subconscious ) work. Mind is not the “brain”. Mind is the “soul” and brain is the switch board of the mind. Once you connect with your inner child who resides in your subconscious mind and take care of it, than you can change your old belief system and imbed a new belief system. Changing the old neuropathways in the switch board (brain) by replacing the old fuse with a new one is the way to take control over your mind. All I do is to assist you how to do it!

How do you see your services evolving over the next three years?
I am in the process of translating self-help and other training materials related to Hypnosis, EFT, and Body/Mind Connection into Turkish, my native language. I also envision creating a training school in Turkey. I will continue to lead group sessions and further my partnerships with organizations to assist them with their Corporate Wellness Programs.

As a Certified Medical Hypnotherapy Specialist I would like to connect with hospitals and medical centers to assist with pain management, pre-and post-operative surgery anxiety, to increase post-operative healing, MS, Asthma, Cancer, Diabetes, Hypertension, Depression, nail-biting, Post-Traumatic Stress Syndrome, grief, etc.
