SHAMANIC & SOMATIC HEALING SESSIONS
Through a blend of Somatic Therapy, Shamanic Healing, and other trauma-resolution tools,
I help you reconnect to your authentic expression, and support your nervous system to feel calm and at ease.
Shamanic healing is a non-invasive practice where the Shamanic practitioner, with guidance from their spirit allies, embarks on a purposeful journey into the spirit realms. In these realms, they seek insight, retrieve lost souls, and engage with spirits to facilitate healing.
During a shamanic healing session, the practitioner beseeches their helper spirits to initiate shamanic healing. This involves drawing 'power' from the individual's oversoul and recovering lost spirit guides and animals.
People who have undergone life-altering traumas, whether of a mental or physical nature, may have experienced a fragmentation of their soul or damage to their 'spiritual force field.' This can leave them susceptible to illness, misfortune, and depression. Such individuals are often those who stand to gain the most from a shamanic healing session. These sessions are designed to heal the client's soul on multiple levels, including addressing ancestral wounds.
Therapeutic sessions encompass a range of trauma resolution modalities, which may include one or a combination of the following:
1. Somatic Experiencing® (SE): SE is a body-focused therapeutic approach designed to facilitate the healing of trauma and stress. It effectively addresses the symptoms of stress, shock, and accumulated trauma in the body. This somatic therapy method encourages individuals to connect with their physical sensations, engage their senses, ground themselves by feeling their feet on the earth, and ultimately soothe their nervous system. SE demonstrates a positive impact on both emotional and somatic symptoms, as well as overall well-being. It employs a bottom-up approach, focusing on the body and the retention of 'body memory.'
2. Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR): EMDR therapy is a mental health treatment technique that involves specific eye movements while processing traumatic memories. This method can also incorporate touch, sounds, or a combination of sensory stimulations. EMDR aims to aid in the healing of trauma, distressing life experiences, phobias, negative habits, and other related concerns.
3. Traumatic Birth Recovery 3-Step Rewind (TBR 3-Step Rewind): TBR 3-Step Rewind is a gentle and effective process derived from neuro-linguistic programming (NLP). It serves to alleviate heavy or unhelpful emotions and anxiety associated with negative memories related to pregnancy, birth experiences, or any other traumatic life events.
Shamanic Healing Session (online or in Chelsea, London) This session includes some of the following: rebalancing chakras, soul retrieval, energetic unblocking and cleansing, ancestral healing, and other healing practices as well as personal insights. The Intuitive Healing session is based on the client's needs and aims to remove blockages that may be keeping you from living up to your full potential. Andréa uses a combination of Intuition, Divine Guidance, Energy Healing, and Shamanic practices, as she channels information with the purpose and power of assisting you to receive the most accurate and effective healing in pursuit of your highest good. Soul Retrieval is a shamanic practice that allows deep traumas and pain to be released, and the outcome is often associated with a noticeable release of physical and/or emotional tension, positive shifts usually with the resolution of internal and/or intrapersonal conflicts, healing of physical illnesses, among other positive experiences.
Therapeutic session (online or in Chelsea, London) Therapeutic sessions are a trauma-informed alternative therapeutical practice, where Andrea combines shamanic counselling, Somatic Experiencing® (SE), EMDR, and Counselling Skills to help shift emotions, beliefs, and energy stuck in the body and nervous system. Somatic Experiencing® (SE) and EMDR (Eye Movement Desensetization and Reprocessing) are highly effective modalities of trauma-resolution therapy. Both methods use the body's intrinsic capacity to heal itself, thus restoring the client's confidence in themselves. These sessions include spiritual guidance and offer a safe and non-judgmental space for the client to feel heard and supported while honouring the charge held in the body. It includes practices that can help you: - Resolve trauma symptoms - PTSD - Release pain - Honor grief - Empower yourself
Traumatic Birth Recovery session (online or in Chelsea, London) The TBR 3-Step Rewind is a therapeutic technique used to help parents process and heal from traumatic birth experiences and/or challenging events from conception to post-partum. It is an NLP (Neuro-linguistic programming) intervention commonly used for trauma resolution. It is a non-invasive and relatively quick technique, typically taking three sessions to complete. You are supported to remember the event in a specific way whilst feeling safe and secure, and after being guided into a deep relaxation meditation. This session is for people experiencing trauma-related symptoms from a challenging childbirth experience; or who had a difficult conception journey, which still feels difficult to integrate; or in a state of hypervigilance, finding difficult to relax and enjoy motherhood. I have 10 years of experience supporting women to heal their stories, and I combine other trauma resolution tools to this session, if the client agrees with it.
Rite of Passage & Private Ceremonies A Rite of Passage is a ceremony or event marking an important stage in someone's life - a specific life-changing phenomenon, like birth, the transition to adulthood, marriage, childbirth, and death. It is the moment of transition, sometimes a birthday into a specific age, and whatever is meaningful to you. Rites of Passage tend to enhance unresolved issues, giving us the opportunity to deal with them before we transition, or better, birth ourselves anew thus this inner journey takes us as far as we seek to go. Rites of passage foster a sense of renewal while they mark the beginning of a new phase in our lives. They remind us that we are constantly evolving and that life is a transformative journey. I have been performing ceremonies for almost 10 years, including online ceremonies, and all of them have been incredibly transformative. MY EXPERIENCE: - In-person and online - Teenagers to 50-year-old people - Menarche Reclamation - Couples (wedding, vow renewal) If you feel aligned with a celebratory ceremony, let's talk and create a bespoke special event for you.
Energetic Space Clearing Energetic Space Clearing is the cleansing & balancing of the energy in our home. Space Clearing removes negative and stagnant energies and harmonizes the energy in our living space. The clearing work will take at least 2 hours, depending on the size and configuration of the home, and the residents can choose to stay at home during the process or not. This service is effective in dispersing the invisible environmental charges accumulated in the rooms, closets, corners, under furniture, and more. They cause us to feel overwhelmed, stuck, and out of balance in our homes. Spaces hold the energy of the people who have spent time there, just like personal objects do. The emotions and activities that the space witnessed get imprinted, and over time it builds up and stagnates, impacting how you feel about the space and yourself. The work will clear stagnant residues in the same way as everyday living requires cleaning and tidying on a physical level.
I've never encountered a woman that has such tremendous knowledge of indigenous medicine, pared with power, grace and an aura that lights up every room. I was blessed to have had Andrea walk beside me in a phase of complete death and rebirth. She lovingly held the space for me and shared her insights about the menstrual cycles.
Andrea is a gentle guide into the sacred unknown. She fearlessly walks beside you as you explore deeper levels of self. She creates a safe space for exploration and release of personal and ancestral patterns that do not serve you. Working with her is truly transformative; I have reached new depths of healing and I couldn't be more grateful.
Andrea's circles feel so nurturing. She creates a space that is safe, respectful, and beautiful while allowing each person and the group as a whole to explore complex emotions, feelings and experiences. I remember the first one from years ago: It was so incredibly special and magical and I will cherish it (as well as all of them) in my heart always.
Andrea saw in me what took me years to accept. She took me to another level of understanding and seeing clearly my soul mission. She gave me permission to share my gifts in a true wake up call. She is a goddess with a beautiful soul!.
