EQUINE FACILITATED WELLNESS
& BELIEF CHANGE (EFW-ABC)
• A horse based approach to human development
• Has helped many children and adults experience great
• Where the horse teaches the humans patience, acceptance,
tolerance, creativity, teamwork and a host of other
characteristics and skills
Activities with horses are experiential and designed to promote personal discovery and learning. Interactions with horses provide participants with insight into many aspects of their lives and can take them on a powerful journey of learning and self-discovery.
Horses live in the moment and encourage us to be present. They are non-judgemental and provide us with reflection of our own behaviour and emotions - both positive and negative. Horses respond instinctively to non-verbal communication and body language, giving us honest and instant feedback on our behaviour and feelings.
DEFINITION OF HYPNOTHERAPY
Contrary to popular belief, hypnosis is not a state of deep sleep. It does involve the induction of a trance-like condition, but when in it, the patient is actually in an enhanced state of awareness, concentrating entirely on the hypnotist's voice. In this state, the conscious mind is suppressed and the subconscious mind is revealed. The practice of promoting healing or positive development in any way is known as hypnotherapy. Hypnotherapy aims to re-programme patterns of behaviour within the mind, enabling irrational fears, phobias, negative thoughts and suppressed emotions to be overcome. As the body is released from conscious control during the relaxed trance-like state of hypnosis, breathing becomes slower and deeper, the pulse rate drops and the metabolic rate falls. Similar changes along nervous pathways and hormonal channels enable the sensation of pain to become less acute, and the awareness of unpleasant symptoms, such as nausea or indigestion, to be alleviated.
When is the last time you felt inner conflicts over whether or not to achieve a goal or overcome an undesired habit? Have you ever sought hypnotic help for the same goal more than once?
Parts therapy is hypnosis for inner conflict resolution; and the parts therapy process often helps clients succeed even when other hypnotic techniques have failed. According to experts, we all have anywhere from five to fifteen various aspects (or parts) of the subconscious that influence us in any given week. In other words, we all wear different hats. Parts therapy is a highly effective hypnotic technique to help clients resolve inner conflicts. Numerous professionals around the world help clients by employing either parts therapy or variations, which are similar techniques with different names that are based on the same concept.
Originally pioneered by the later Charles Tebbetts (a pioneer of client-centered hypnotherapy), parts therapy resembles ego state therapy and voice dialogue, as well as other variations going by different names
THE SIMPSON PROTOCOL
The Simpson Protocol is a tool that allows the client’s Conscious mind to relax and step aside so that their Superconscious (whatever that may be – but it seems to be – the most powerful mind of minds, that is also the most knowing) can work freely and completely -to the benefit of the Client’s optimum Good
This technique represents a profound breakthrough in Hypnosis. It is already begun to revolutionize therapies to individualize them for each client by allowing each client’s Super-Conscious Mind to do the work. This is done by continuing to communicate with the Hypnotist while the client is in the deeper states, the client can do their own inner work with the direction of the Hypnotist to help them resolve whatever issue that is disturbing them.
Importantly, this takes the Hypnotist’s conscious mind out of the equation and allows the client’s own mental assets to do the evaluation and the change work from within. This is a much purer means of bringing about an accurate and correct change for the specific issue in each client and is client-centered which empowers the client.
This elegant therapy piece was developed by the late Leslie McIntosh founder of the Coastal Academy of Hypnotic Arts & Sciences. After years of practice, Leslie developed and fine- tuned this process to allow clients to truly leave behind negative emotions and thoughts in order to move freely forward in their lives. Leslie introduced the process to students studying at her facility and in later years to hypnotherapists at international workshops.
PAST LIFE REGRESSION
Facilitating a Past Life Regression is one of our favorite therapy pieces. Why? Because clients generally have a lot of fun exploring this intriguing process. This therapy piece allows clients to explore the possibility of a past life. Past life regression is a technique that explores what practitioners believe are memories of past lives or incarnations.
Some clients come seeking answers to perceived blocks in this life. Some believe that they have carried over lessons or issues from previous lifetimes and some just want to have specific experiences.
Whether you are intrigued by the idea of a past life or lives, or whether you believe the mind simply uses metaphors, exploring past life can be an amazing way to seek answers from deep with yourself.
Past life regression is a technique that uses hypnosis to recover what clients believe are memories of past lives or incarnations. Past life regression is typically undertaken either in pursuit of a spiritual experience, or in a psychotherapeutic setting.
Whether you believe in reincarnation, that it is just your mind creating metaphors, or you are just curious about the process, Past Life regression can be a fun and very profound experience
PSYCH-K® is a simple process that provides direct communication with your subconscious mind, providing a unique way to identify and change "subconscious beliefs", responsible for behaviors you would like to change and that may be unconsciously sabotaging even your best intentions (i.e. self-esteem, relationships, job performance, emotional and physical health). It is a user-friendly way to rewrite the software of your mind in order to change the printout of your life.
PSYCH-K® evolved from years of split-brain research, also known as brain dominance theory, as well as hundreds of sessions with groups and individuals. By increasing the cross-talk between hemispheres, a receptive state of mind is created that dramatically reduces resistance to change at the subconscious level. The subconscious mind and the beliefs it holds (similar to your computer programs and files) can be accessed much like you might access a word document on your computer hard drive, using a “mental keyboard” so to speak. It’s a user friendly method of partnering with the subconscious.
We've all heard that old saying "your life is a reflection of your beliefs"; and usually these beliefs are programmed during childhood between birth and age six or seven.
During these early years your mind is downloading it's unique operating system. While the operating system is being installed, you don't yet possess judgement, discernment and all the other capabilities and qualities the operating system will eventually define and create for you.
During this time, everything you see, hear and feel in your environment are programmed automatically and become the default software you then run the rest of your life from. These programs or "beliefs" impact you as an adult completely under your conscious radar!
TRE® is designed to be a self-help tool that, once learned, can be used independently as needed throughout one’s life, thereby continuously supporting and promoting personal health and wellness.

SOMATIC STRESS RELEASING EXERCISES
Based on the innovative series of exercises that assist the body in releasing deep muscular patterns of stress, tension and trauma, developed by David Bercelli. The exercises safely activate a natural reflex mechanism of shaking or vibrating that releases muscular tension, calming down the nervous system. When this muscular shaking/vibrating mechanism is activated in a safe and controlled environment, the body is encouraged to return back to a state of balance.
Tension & Trauma Releasing Exercises (or TRE®) is based on the fundamental idea, backed by research, that stress, tension and trauma is both psychological and physical. TRE®’s reflexive muscle vibrations generally feel pleasant and soothing. After doing TRE®, many people report feelings of peace and well-being. TRE® has helped many thousands of people globally.
Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by "laying on hands" and is based on the idea that an unseen "life force energy" flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one's "life force energy" is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.
The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words - Rei which means "God's Wisdom or the Higher Power" and Ki which is "life force energy". So Reiki is actually "spiritually guided life force energy."
Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and wellbeing. Many have reported miraculous results.
Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that everyone can use. It has been effective in helping virtually every known illness and malady and always creates a beneficial effect. It also works in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery.
While Reiki is spiritual in nature, it is not a religion. It has no dogma, and there is nothing you must believe in order to learn and use Reiki. In fact, Reiki is not dependent on belief at all and will work whether you believe in it or not. Because Reiki comes from God, many people find that using Reiki puts them more in touch with the experience of their religion rather than having only an intellectual concept of it.
