Have you ever asked yourself what is a belief?
Have you ever questioned your beliefs?
Have you ever wondered whether reality actually needs beliefs?
Belief systems are the filter through which we view reality. The conscious part of our mind sees reality through an intricate web of conditioned beliefs and then we act and move in the world according to those beliefs, the web stretches right down through every layer of our subconscious.
The beliefs we experience are created throughout the generations and within the collective and then taken on by the individual, and there is a consensus that these are absolute, that they are real.
They shape our worldview, they shape our self view, they shape the way we relate to others and to ourselves, and they shape the way the nervous system adapts to being on the planet.
Here is an example:
If I grow up in an environment that feels threatening, one of the core beliefs my body/subconscious may take on is “I'm not safe” or...

Relationship issues can be one of the toughest things to work through in our life, whether that be family, friends, work colleagues, or even our partner. Knowing how to identify issues and find solutions fast is essential to preserving these relationships.
If you don't know anything about Root-Cause Therapy, then I will tell you a little bit about it now.
Root-Cause Therapy is a trauma healing method that uses regression to allow the completion of unprocessed emotions which are still presently causing unwanted thoughts, behaviours and symptoms in one's life.
With advanced ways of testing and discovering the actual causation of the currently presenting unease within oneself, we find the actual cause which could be reflecting itself through negative life patterns, thoughts and choices.
A qualified practitioner facilitates the client to tap into the self-healing mechanisms of the deeper parts of...
Human beings can be extremely complex.
The ever deepening unconscious layers of threads and structures that govern the orientation of each individual are seemingly infinite, every moment a spontaneous arising, perceptions and perspectives creating and recreating themselves spinning endless loops and patterns of images, words and sensations presenting themselves as reactions and responses to our environment and giving rise to our sense of self.
Within the human psyche are many layers of unintegrated and unconscious imprints that are the driving force of how we move in the world, parts of ourselves that are unknown and hidden from us.
I call these parts the abandoned orphans, they are structures that have been split off from the whole, they live within us in places that for most people attention dares not travel.
A tree on the other hand is so simply itself, it has its branches, it has its leaves, it is made of wood and simply just sits there, being itself.
It has no likes nor...
What is Embodied Processing?
The Embodied Process is the bottom-up approach to working with trauma, low self-esteem, anxiety, addiction, depression and a myriad of other stress-related issues.
This process was created based on years of lived experience, research, training and client sessions.
The creators have incorporated the best methods to help practitioners and clients deepen not only their ability to work with what was once unworkable with normal psychology, but also deepen into themselves and live a much more present and embodied life.
With all the recent neuroscience on trauma, we are only just beginning to understand what our survival physiology is all about. The underground embodied movement sweeping through the western world is now starting to emerge and provide us with cutting edge knowledge to better understand survival physiology, allowing us the chance to make transformation happen from the ground up. Now we can work with the foundations of our human...
Root-Cause Therapy is a powerful style of therapy that assists people in getting to the root cause of their current presenting symptoms.
Do you or your clients experience negative self-talk, unhelpful habits and behaviours or perhaps PTSD and procrastination from low self-belief because of painful events in the past or anxieties and worries about the future?
It’s time to not only talk about the issues - but to start to heal them on a deeper level where real long term change is possible.
The power of this method lies in the way that it works on all levels of our minds. The conscious mind, so you reading this now and the unconscious mind - where our automatic learnt behaviours and bottled up emotions reside.
Unlike hypnosis, which can create a fear of lack of control and unlike talk therapy which can leave you feeling worse with a long-time frame to create change in behaviours and thoughts - this type of healing creates a space for you to unravel why you do,...
The first 3 are ‘pathological contradictions’ of Love.
The last 2 are healthy expressions of it.
In the Tao they say that this is the lowest form of love, so much so it’s not really love at all. It’s the eternal quest for ‘things’ that we ‘must’ have. Be it money, material possessions or a partner. It’s the objectifying of people and things, think the Male chauvinist. This type of ‘love’ turns the pure, selfless act into a selfish and manipulative feeding of the ego.
We see this in the example of a Man and his ‘trophy...
Have you ever wondered what they mean by “felt sense”?
The felt sense is in the direct experience of bodily sensation. As a beginning practice it may be helpful to close your eyes and begin to tune into your body, notice your hands, what does the presence of your hands feel like? Can you notice subtle sensations, subtle energy?
Can you feel the presence of your hands? This can be a helpful practice for beginners, to just gently feel the hands or other parts of the body that have neutral associations. You will notice almost immediately the pull to be dragged back into the mind, into thinking about the felt sense rather than feeling the felt sense.
Do not fight this pull, just gently notice you have been drawn back into mind, and then return attention back to the feeling of your hands.
With practice the ability to hold attention in the body grows and we spend longer and longer periods there. (PS. Be weary of letting this turn into a struggle, have patience with...
Anger is quite often quoted to me as the most difficult emotion for people to experience.
When we are children the energy and expression of anger is more often than not met with disdain, even forms of healthy aggression we can be conditioned to shut down and move into states of collapse, fawn or freeze instead.
When we express aggression and are met with some form of shaming by a larger more powerful being whom our survival relies on, part of our survival strategy is to then orphan our anger. We dissociate from this part of ourselves in order to maintain some kind of healthy relational attachment.
We may learn by their response that when anger is present love is withdrawn. Our relationship to anger then becomes one of resistance and our anger itself becomes associated with threat.
This can create layers of internal struggle along with unconscious self hatred and shame for having these emotions, which are actually in truth a very natural and healthy part of development.
In the above video I talk about combining The Centre for Healing's 2 Certified Modalities, Root-Cause Therapy & Embodied Processing.
What might a session look like when combining the two?
You can also apply this to combining other modalities too.
Many of you reading this will be trained in different processes and sometimes you can feel like you need to keep them seperate.
I believe in using all the tools we have at our disposal if that's what the client needs in the moment.
It can become an art form and make you a very sought after Practitioner.

- The Basics of EP
