Spirit Release Work One of the reasons I chose hypnotherapy all those years ago was that it could be successfully used across such a wide range of issues, and it was much quicker and more direct at finding the root cause of an issue than some other modalities. At that time I did not realise just how much more effective it would be with the added power of past life and spirit release work. Let me give you one example, of a young man in his mid-20s who came to see me. He was lovely, charming, a ray of sunshine, but there was a dullness about him. He explained that, on his 18th birthday, he had gone into a local betting shop, just because he could.

Like most new clients, he was a bit wary when I explained about past lives and spirit “passengers” and soul retrieval but, as some level, it all made sense to him, and said he was willing to give it a go. In the first session we found some spirit “passengers” and had them escorted to the light where they belonged. We had also ascertained that we needed to check a past life, and we had a list of the years to look at for soul retrieval. When he returned for the next session, the young man looked brighter. I asked how he had been and his reply was really interesting. “I have not felt the need to gamble since our last session,” he said, with a big smile on his face. In that second session, we found a past life. It was not dramatic, or traumatic, as some of the lives I am guided to: on the contrary. The man we found was alone – and lonely – throughout his life, and felt that his life had been wasted, there was so much more he should have, could have done if only …. if...
