Less anxiety, more energy and motivation, prepared and excited about pregnancy and childbirth
Crystal is a skilled, intuitive and empathetic practitioner and knew exactly how to get right to the root of what I needed to address. I can’t even express how nervous I was to dig deep and how easy Crystal made it. This work is so gentle yet you experience instant results and we’ve made so much progress in our first 4 sessions. This work has changed my life and shifted things I didn’t even know were in the way. Crystal made me feel totally comfortable with the entire process.
EFT and Matrix Reimprinting is so powerful. It has really helped me to get out of my own way and respond intuitively to what my subconscious was holding on to. I had some really odd memories pop up that I would have never explored further, that ended up being the key to a major shift!
The benefits for me have been less anxiety, more energy and motivation, prepared and excited about pregnancy and childbirth. My desire to have another baby finally outweighs my fear of another pregnancy. I feel like my world has been blasted wide open in the best possible way. I am excited for all the possibilities out there. I can’t even express what this means to me. Thank you for what you do.
Pregnancy + Birth Preparation
After completing a few rounds of tapping with Crystal, I immediately felt much calmer and more prepared
Experiencing the effects of EFT with Crystal was very rewarding. I was experiencing some fears regarding the upcoming birth of my first child, and the discomfort management techniques that I had chosen to use during the birth. After completing a few rounds of tapping with Crystal, I immediately felt much calmer and more prepared. During the process of tapping, I was able to feel the "weight" being lifted off of my shoulders, as the burden of my thoughts slipped away. I would highly recommend this technique to anyone who is experiencing fears.
After just one session, I already feel lighter and more confident going forward
After enjoying our Hypnobabies classes taught by Crystal, I was excited to work with her using EFT to clear up some remaining birth fears that I had. It was quite a powerful experience that really helped me put a voice to some of my fears and express them in a constructive way. After just one session, I already feel lighter and more confident going forward. It was a pleasure to work with Crystal and hope to do another session soon!
The EFT session I had with Crystal was hugely helpful in my journey to becoming a first time mother
The EFT session I had with Crystal was hugely helpful in my journey to becoming a first time mother. I felt pretty confident about going into childbirth but Crystal helped me dig deep to identify some hidden fears that may have interfered with the flow of things. Not only did we identify my fears associated with childbirth, but we uncovered why they were there, and were then able to address them effectively. After our session, I felt relieved and free to have a wonderful childbirth experience. Thanks Crystal!
Matrix Birth Reimprinting was such a gentle, beautiful experience and hugely healing for me
Thank you for facilitating my Matrix Birth Reimprinting experience Crystal. It was such a gentle, beautiful experience and I can tell that it has already been hugely healing for me. Even just to take away some of the intensity of what my birth brings up for me, and allow my “memories” of it to be full of love.
Postpartum + Birth Healing
I have never experienced something so immediate and so profound so quickly
I gave birth January 11, 2013. To say it didn't go as planned is an understatement. In fact, until very recently I would explain my baby was born by emergency c section. The events surrounding her birth and her actual birth left me with intense birth trauma.
I lost sleep, I was anxious, depressed, ate poorly and did not take care of myself physically. I had vivid flashbacks, which were jarring and terrifying. I was over protective of my daughter not allowing anyone to care out of fear. This obviously put distance between my husband and myself, my friends and my family. I literally could not talk about my daughters birth without breaking down.
The experience left me feeling broken, like I failed at being a woman, I failed at being a mother. I had failed. My body failed me. I failed my daughter. I was worthless. The entire experience broke me.
At my last appointment with my midwife. She referred me to attend some trauma counselling. You are entitled to 4-5 sessions of talk therapy. Essentially a debriefing of your experience. This improved things marginally. I managed to put myself together enough to carry on with my life, care of my infant daughter and just survive. My code, never talk about her birth. Don't even think about it. It was enough to make it day by day.
Of course this survival mode can only last so long. I was miserable, moody, and short tempered. It was far from an ideal I would ever want to live.
A friend started sharing her experience with EFT and Matrix Reimprinting. She was so excited about the effectiveness and the usefulness of these tools. I figured what do I have left to lose? Absolutely nothing. She had completed her practitioner training and I signed up as a client. I did a little reading into the process, however mainly wanted a fresh experience.
I met Crystal online at our appointment time. She is always punctual! I have a lot of therapy experience face to face. I wasn't sure how Skype would work. I was with antsy surprise. Crystal’s warmth, empathy, compassion and caring transmits just as well electronically as it does in person. She takes her time and is quick to pick up on your body language when you might not be doing so well, even if you try to lie. Don't bother, she knows. Ha.
How does the process work? I slowly started telling my story. When I reached an emotionally charged point, we stopped, we talked about the layers on that memory, the emotions, the fears, the anger. I put words to things I didn't realize I had. I tapped through. As I tapped the intensity lessened. We are talking immediate results. I have never experienced something so immediate and so profound so quickly. Things which I didn't think were important came to light. And through the process things which I thought were a big deal were being dealt with subconsciously healing. I was finally healing!!!
After the first session, I noticed my mood was much more level. I was more patient and cordial with my husband. I could laugh again. Intimacy found it's way back to our marriage. I was more present for my daughter. There wasn't a wall of guilt and shame holding me at arms length from her. This was huge.
So the matrix part of things. Keanu doesn't show up, it is not sci fi related. I really can't explain it. Basically you take a memory, and you get to go back and have a pseudo "do-over". You get to gift yourself with all the love, support, information or whatever else you may have needed to have a different experience. This is then sent to your cells as your memory. Sounds a bit much right? Well honestly I can attest to it's effectiveness. This is an amazing tool. I am finally at a place where I can look back and be filled with love and warmth and support and beauty where as before I was terrified even remembering her birth. The details are still the details. All the negative emotions which were stuck in my body no longer exist.
Following sessions built upon this and created more air around her birth. I can actually discuss her birth openly and not be reduced to tears or horrific memories. Today I can say that I birthed my baby through cesarean section.
I am so grateful for these tools and I am so grateful for Crystal. I can truly say this changed my life. I very much look forward to continue working with Crystal in other areas of my life.
My physical and emotional pain have been transformed
I have had the greatest pleasure to work with Crystal in the past and was absolutely delighted to experience the power of EFT and Matrix Reimprinting with her more recently.
I was always a skeptical person and would not believe EFT could really work until I saw some spectacular results on my own 5-year-old son. Still, I did not feel ready to try it out on myself.
A survivor of severe birth trauma, EFT was a wonderful tool to add to my box of tricks as I walk on the path of resilience and recovery when I finally built up the courage to explore all its power in the company of a very good practitioner: Crystal!
With Crystal, I always felt very safe to explore some of the most difficult aspects of my trauma and my past. She is trustworthy and passionate about helping others discover their own inner capacity to heal and transcend difficult experiences. She has an open-heart and an open-mind and will always check in and make great suggestions on how to tackle some of the more difficult aspects of this work.
In just six sessions with Crystal, I have noted some amazing changes. My physical and emotional pain have been transformed and are not as incapacitating as they were before. I find myself being more available for my own children and more energetic in my day-to-day life. I feel I have made peace with some aspects of my trauma but also, and this may be the most life-changing of it all, I have learned that I can trust myself to ask for help and support. I am now giving myself permission to experience some of the deep emotions I was previously denying myself. Most of all, I am giving myself permission to be imperfect! Quite the revolution for me!
Thanks to the work with Crystal, I am exploring new ways to find balance in my life and new ways to be a better parent and a better person. As cheesy as this may sound, the EFT and Matrix Reimprinting work I did with Crystal has allowed me to see myself as worthy of self-love and acceptance.
My gratitude to Crystal for walking this path with me is immense and I would recommend her in a heartbeat to anyone who feels the need to do healing work.
Healing Childhood Sexual Abuse
I am forever grateful for this deep and profound sense of closure on something that really rocked my world
Before working with Crystal, I'd worked with several different therapists & counsellors to address an episode of sexual abuse that occurred when I was a child. I feel that it was overall beneficial working with these other therapists, but I always finished with the belief that I was forever changed from that early experience. Although I could wade through some of the mess, it would never completely go away. The pain was less, but still there.
Doing EFT and Matrix Reimprinting with Crystal was a total game changer! I suddenly felt in control of my own past, present, and future. I got to choose a different path entirely! Oh the freedom! The shifts I experienced working with Crystal have been permanent and life changing. The healing was immediate, and quick- we only did 6 sessions together and I am astounded that I feel my work with this issue is 'complete'. I am forever grateful for this deep and profound sense of closure on something that really rocked my world and tainted my perceptions of myself in such fundamental ways.
The experience of abuse led me to internalize many negative feelings and beliefs about myself, including low self-esteem and low self-worth. I am blown away by the fact that much of my negative self-talk is now gone!
It has helped me feel less identified with my experience of sexual abuse, it even makes me feel more like a whole person again. Instead of feeling broken and dirty, I have more feelings of self-compassion, self-acceptance, and empowerment.
I recently had a pelvic floor physiotherapist check in with me to make sure I wasn't getting triggered by our sessions (because she knew my history), and I was confused for a second... 'why would I be triggered?' I silently wondered for a second because I had changed my perceptions around the event. It was as if the memory of abuse belonged to someone else. I am no longer identified as a victim of sexual abuse. I have changed the scripts inside my head.
During one of my sessions, I started crying with such an intense joy because I had my first conscious experience of feeling profound Self Love. It shattered me open and I am forever changed by it.
I am so grateful for the work Crystal has done with me and I know she is the exact person I was meant to heal this issue with. It just couldn't have happened any other way. She is extremely gifted and perceptive, has the highest degree of integrity, accountability, honesty, and professionalism. Plus she is open and inviting, warm and genuinely caring. This is a unique combination and she is such a gifted practitioner.
What Others Are Saying
Crystal was able to help me to release the negative emotions and create more positive ones
I had an EFT & Matrix Reimprinting session with Crystal and saw just how amazing it is, and how much I can benefit from it. I had a lot of anxiety and anger surrounding an event, and Crystal was able to help me to release the emotions and create more positive ones. I feel so much better and changes in my life are already happening!
I always finish my sessions feeling seen, and held, and transformed
Crystal is very grounded, professional, intuitive, confident, and gifted with the work she does. It is always a little bit of a risk to do this type of work with a friend, but I find that I am very comfortable talking with her and she maintains appropriate boundaries between our work together and our friendship. Crystal is warm, empathetic, caring, and wise. I always finish my sessions with her feeling seen, and held, and transformed.
I would recommend Crystal’s services to my peers because it is something that can help with so many issues people might have from trauma, to unhealthy patterns, to limiting beliefs. I trust Crystal immensely and I know that she is professional, and capable to support many types of problems and all kinds of people.
