Like some of you reading this, Deborah has direct understanding of trauma and its devastating and sometimes lasting effects on human lives. It can affect us emotionally, physically and spiritually. Sometimes, we are not consciously aware of the effects on us of stress and/or traumatic life events. Indeed, research has now proven that negative emotions can be held at a cellular level. Over time, if not released, the imbalance within our cells can manifest at a physical level causing us physical ailments. Supporting the theory that the link between our emotional state and our physical wellbeing is intrinsically linked.

Following her physical healing from a traumatic head on car collision in the nighties, Deborah experienced the health benefits from Hypnotherapy and other alternative/complimentary therapies. Deborah began practising yoga, meditation and breath-work…disciplines she continues to practice today. It was nearly 20 years ago that Deborah first encountered the wonderful and transformational emotional effects of Hypnotherapy first hand. Deborah continues to have a keen interest in the power of the mind and holistic healing and its effects on our bodies and our lives.
