My name is Aura Walker. I am a Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist (Hypnosis Motivation Institute 2006) with experience working with all ages since 1995. I also have a Masters Degree in Transpersonal Counseling (every crisis is an opportunity for growth), Psychology, and Art Therapy (Naropa University 1998), and ethics training. Recently, I consulted for two years with the Psych Trauma Center at Cedars Sinai Medical Center as a trauma intervention specialist and art therapist with inner city elementary school aged children. After 12-20 sessions at the school, 65% had increased self esteem and 72% had improved behaviors.
Over the years I noticed that most of my clients had experienced trauma at some point in their lives. Whether it had been from a car accident, a bad break up, child abuse, spousal abuse, or war. So I developed a protocol for trauma release that has been effective in 1-4 sessions. In fact I noticed that often the more prolonged the trauma the more dramatic the results have been. My sessions are completely confidential. I have extended my services to do group workshops at battered women's shelters. I am also revisiting doing workshops on children's mental health awareness issues to educate teachers, on how to better manage children's behaviors in class, to help children to succeed in school. I did this for the State of Minnesota from 2001-2002 with an up to 90% success rate. The correlation between failure in school and incarceration later in life are direct. Currently 1% almost 30 million people are in prison. We tax payers are paying thousands a day to house these prisoners. Early childhood intervention is the key to lowering these staggering numbers. I have also taught alternatives to physical punishment for parents, stress management classes, and I am continuing to negotiate with Veterans Administration Services to offer my services for more veterans returning from the Middle East.
In helping people to better manage their stress I have helped people to quit smoking, to detox, and to sleep better. Similarly, I also teach clients how to have better eating habits and how to use supplements to balance their hormones so that they can lose weight, have increased libido, increased immunity, and less aches and pains. I added a potent line of all natural Amazon Rain Forest herbs to help my clients with these issues. www.aura.amazonherb.net
I always discuss my procedures in person and have clients fill out a confidentiality agreement in person. I also let clients know that hypnosis is a natural occurring state for all humans. In fact lack of sleep, stress, repetitive actions, and low blood sugar are all triggers for uncontrolled hypnosis. In a session the client cooperates with me to learn how to relax more. The more open a client is to my suggestions the faster they see results.
Please feel free to look at my website and to call me with any questions you may have.
Here's to your increased self awareness and to your good heath!
I hope to meet you soon.
