I have always been interested in the essence beneath the surface. In 1985, I began working as a hypnotherapist seeking to explore the unknown. I studied Neuro Linguistic Programming with John Grinder and Richard Bandler, the founders of that movement. I also studied with Tony Robbins and worked for many years with him as a master trainer.
In my private practice and in trainings, people would come to me complaining of an inability to be, do or feel what they wanted in their lives. This ongoing sense of inability was highlighted and reinforced by events in the present. These events were part of a bigger pattern. What was happening in the present had happened, not just once before, but often many times in different ways. However, the pattern would often remain unrecognized. When we are in the middle of a pattern, deeply absorbed in the drama of our lives, it is hardest to see.
A new vantage point can allow the pattern(s) to be seen and understood. When the client is guided back in time to uncover the original event, the foundation of the pattern, a new awareness blossoms. The old events are integrated and released.
Training with Asha Clinton, the founder of Seemorg Matrix (later called Advanced Integrative Therapy), I learned a very effective method to guide my clients even further back into their lives, often to their birth and prenatal experience, to release the foundation of a pattern. It was very enlightening to discover that the patterns often started prior to birth.
In 2002, I began my study of Family Constellations Work (also known as Family Systems Work) originated by Bert Hellinger. Hellinger, a German therapist and ex-Anglican priest spent his life observing family customs and structures. It became very clear in studying this work, that patterns that began in prior generations were actually inherited by us, just like our DNA. When the events and emotional patterns of our ancestors are not integrated in their lifetime, they were passed on to us.
Many clients have physical issues that will not resolve with physical treatment alone. This led me to study two very effective methods, The Journey created by Brandon Bays and Body-Mind Work developed by Penelope Young.
The Journey uses the body’s wisdom to discover what events have been stored at the cellular level and provides a path to freedom and love.
With Body-Mind work, I lead my clients into an experience of total presence with their body. This often begins with feeling discomfort or pain that eventually leads to a physical and spiritual experience of bliss and unity.
In 2012, I began an intensive two year training in Heart Intelligence, developed by Christian Pankhurst. Heart IQ™ is the art of feeling more joy in life through the process of accepting who you are, as you are, without making yourself wrong.
I mention these methods individually because I am deeply grateful to these teachers who have shared their wisdom with me. Over the years, these techniques have intertwined and evolved to become my own. They are uniquely integrated in each session, to help bring my clients more fully into the present moment in their body, while simultaneously integrating key feelings and events that occurred in the past.
Liberation and happiness require embracing “all that is”. When we put up barriers of fear or rejection, we stop the flow. Whatever we reject or judge remains trapped in our field and in our cells until we can allow it to be part of us. When we do, it becomes a source of strength and joy rather than an obstacle.
Together, we can find the hidden love at the foundation of our unwanted feelings and behaviors. We can love our ‘whole self’ and from that place forge relationships that last. I would be honored to partner with you in this journey of discovery.
Before I came to see Wendy, I suffered major mood swings that kept me from being effective as a parent, wife and business-woman. I was tired all the time and didn’t want to interact with anybody. I didn’t feel motivated and was feeling alone.
I finally feel like myself again. I have worked through so much of my worthiness issues. I am exercising again regularly and my business is growing. I have great patience again with my kids (and my husband!). As corny as it sounds, I really feel alive again. I wake up every morning with anticipation once again, instead of dread.Pamela R.
Wendy, I don’t know what angelic force sent you, or allowed me to find you, but the English language is insufficient to express to you how much I appreciate this. I have been to about a “trillion” practitioners, over the years but I haven’t seen anything even close to this!!
You have a quality and talent that is almost surreal, in terms of the reality of what you do. Or, I mean, the manifestation of what you are doing in my life is actually startling.
Thank You Is Inadequate,Michael K.
Dear Wendy, The very first session I had with you was tremendously powerful. I felt a happiness and a confidence that I have rarely experienced in my life. You were able to establish a connection with me and I felt deeply understood and welcomed. It is this capacity for empathy that made all the difference. In addition, you had the ability to shape the sessions in a way that I felt ownership of my own changes and discoveries. I felt I could relax and trust. I did not have to resist any hidden ideology or agenda. And it is only within a space of trust that changes can take place. My journey has only begun, but I am not the same person I was only a few months ago. And my capacity to love — myself and other people — has started blooming.Paola
