Discovering your past lives
You only live once….. or do you?

Within each of us reside the events and memories of many former lifetimes. Just as a child’s early experiences exert a profound influence on the later adult, so too the stored knowledge contributes to and effects our present choices and decisions: our present in inextricably bound to the past…
At the Visage Therapy Centre, through carefully guided regression, I can help you to live past life incarnations and re-experience these formative primal events.

By recalling and exploring the dramas of past lives you can help to:

  • Stimulate increased self knowledge
  • Reveal the karmic causes of physical illness
  • Control or eliminate pain, guilt and anxiety
  • Dissolve the negative aspects of the past which hinder spiritual growth and contentment
  • Discover a greater meaning and purpose in your daily life

Belief in re-incarnation is not necessary to achieve positive results – the only requirements are an open mind and a willingness to try.

Over 80% success rate after only one session.

Our guarantee, if at any time within 3 months you become irritable, angry or grouchy or return back to smoking, then you an come back for a 30 min top-up session at no extra cost, as long as you have complied with all the guidelines given.

Becom e a non-smoker If your smoking is causing you some concern and you wish to dispense with it, then Visage can help you. By the use of hypnotherapy, nine out of every ten people who seek our help in this way do n fact overcome the habit. They also
of course benefit by improving their health and financial position.

The main effect of the treatment is to minimize, and in some cases completely remove the craving for a cigarette. This, as anyone who have tried to give up alone will appreciate, is the main problem associated with giving up. Another effect is to
minimise, and again in some cases completely remove the need to substitute something in the place of nicotine. Finally the treatment allows one to relax completely, which in turn means it becomes much easier to maintain an even temper in the first few days after giving up.

Also included in the cost of the course is a CD, which can be played in the comfort of your own home as often as you wish. This CD will also help you to stay calm and relaxed. When you book your appointment, then that will represent the time and the day upon which you become a non-smoker. It is therefore vital that you prepare yourself for this occasion in the following way. Your appointment should free you from the craving that has caused your to fail in the past, and will help to make you determined never to smoke again. In short you will not want to smoke.

It is therefore necessary to make sure this does not happen by accident. So before coming for treatment make sure you do not have any cigarettes in the car, work, home or anywhere else. You may in fact be asked to leave any unsmoked cigarettes in the room before you leave.

These actions serve 2 purposes; firstly they will prevent you from beginning to smoke again by accident, and more importantly these actions give you the chance to think positively about giving up, and this in turn increases your chance of success.

  • Adjust positively to the changes on yourbody
  • Bond with your baby in the womb
  • No fear of the birthing process
  • Use of hypnosis for your labour, taking theexcessive pain out of the birthing process
  • Connect to your body’s cellular memory of how to give birth

Hypnotherapy healing can do all this for you.

Hypnotherapy Healing

Imagine giving birth peacefully, without excessive pain, or no pain.... unbelievable?

Impossible even, that’s what I used to think too, but I was wrong... the techniques of hypnosis for labour and birth are based on the work of English physician Dr Grantly Dick Read. He was a pioneer in the field of natural childbirth and his principles are the foundation of The National childbirth Trust (N.C.T.).

Firstly I would like to clear up any myths regarding hypnotherapy so that you can read the rest of this article in a positive light. The misconception and impression that many people hold is hypnosis is something mythical and dangerous. Hypnosis has even been portrayed by some as a scary form of mind control where people are made to give up control of themselves, hypnosis is in fact the opposite. People visit a hypno-therapist because they want to help gain more control over their lives, not less.

What does hypnosis feel like?

By closing your eyes you can change your brain wave naturally from beta to alpha, the relaxing brain wave. I Rezwana, the hypnotherapist, will take you into a deeply relaxed state using guided imagery of peace and relaxation to flow through you. If we take
this relaxed state into the birthing process we can detach ourselves from potential pain, taking our minds off into a dream world. This allowing the amazing cellular memory of our foremothers to take over, keeping faith in our body’s ability to give birth. The only
thing that stops this process is fear and the tensing of the body whilst the contractions are happening.

What is covered in Hypnosis for Pregnancy and Birth Classes?

Birth is sometimes seen as painful, traumatic, and an undignified rite of passage in the West. In a recent survey over 80% of women said they were frightened during labour and 53% found giving birth more shocking. I want to help women and their birthing partners have a peaceful relaxed pregnancy, and take the fear out of the birthing process.

YOU WILL FEEL CONFIDENT AND POSITIVE ABOUT LABOUR; with the tools given, birth will be gentle.

Topics Covered:

I love to start the process of hypnosis and visualisation as early as 3 months, but can be started at any tie. I will teach you and you will have a CD to take home.

A DEEP RELAXATION SESSION teaches you to truly relax your body, understand the birth process and how the body adjusts to pregnancy. By visualising this 25 whilst in hypnosis, we start the process of communication of your mind and body. As your body responds to your visualisation, you are actually starting to program your body for a peaceful pregnancy and confident, gentle birth. Learning to bond with your baby by sending endorphins - happy hormones - which will keep your baby calm during the birth process. From 4 months your baby feels all the emotions that you do.

TEACHING YOUR BIRTHING PARTNER A GENTLE CLEANSING MASSAGE TO keep the birthing and abdominal areas free from toxins and fluid retention, thus oxygenates the baby and stop oedema in the legs, back ache and pain, keeping flexibility to the spine and
hip areas. Vaginal and perinal stretch massage reducing the risk of tearing and making the transition stage minimal. Teaching you how to go to into self-hypnosis for labour and birth, giving your partner positive mantras to keep you in a positive, confident place, relaxing
your body and letting it open up.

Creating a birth rehearsal, allowing you to use guided breathing techniques:

A) Visualising the body opening up for birth
B) Visualisations for speeding up labour
C) Being so relaxed you often fell surges rather than pain, you even have the serenity to smile.
I will give you a CD to take home as repetition is the key to success. The sooner you start, the more it will become second nature to you.

I am available for creative healing, a form of massage advocated by the London Obstetrician Dr Gowri Motha, author of the Gentle Birth Method, which allows me to eliminate most pregnancy problems physically, mentally and emotionally, working on the heart, lungs, digestive system and kidneys.

Hypnosis for Pregnancy and Birth teaches you to truly relax yourbody, understand the birth process and how the body adjusts to pregnancy. If we take this relaxed state into the birthing process we can detach ourselves from potential pain, taking ourselves off into a dream world. I so want to help women and their birthing partners to have a peaceful, relaxed pregnancy. You will feel confident and positive about labour with the tools given. The empowerment of a birthing partner who knows how to support you through your birth.

FREE Pregnancy and Birth rehearsal CD with your individual session.

Individual Session 1 ½ hour £50.00 - friends can share the cost, come together.
Classes also available charged at £25.00 - £30.00 depending on numbers

Everyone who attends my classes feels empowered and feel that they can calm address the birth in a positive way. They all feel one of the most valuable things to come out of attending the class is that their partners have learnt how to truly support them physically, mentally and emotionally. The birthing partners have their list of things to do, all the labouring mother has to do is focus on herself, a very important point, as a labour can be prolonged if the mother’s mind and body is otherwise occupied.

CD’s available:
Relaxation to help you conceive
For a relaxed pregnancy
Step by step support for your labour and birth
Adapting confidently to motherhood and banishing the baby blues.
