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.
