I reached out to Hayley in July 2019, and we set up a Reiki session. At that time I was working through a lot of past relationship attachment and trauma. I’d spent two years alone, trying to heal from a very intense, co-dependent relationship, and felt that it was time to really let the relationship go. I had a sense that new love wanted to come in for me, but that I wasn’t emotionally ready for it.
When first meeting Hayley, I felt immediately comfortable and at ease. The energy she exudes, and the energy of her work space is very grounding. Walking in there, I felt like I could breath. Working with her I felt I could talk openly and honestly and that there was no judgement. She asked me a few questions before the Reiki session, and we spoke about my motivation for being there. As a counsellor myself, it was so great to have someone who was able to hold space for me, and to feel comfortable sharing from a more spiritual perspective.
Hayley has an incredible gift when working with energy. During the Reiki session, I could feel the heat coming off her hands from about a meter away. She helped me release a lot of negative energy, some of which I believe came from my past patients, and some of which I had been carrying with me from childhood. After the session she followed up with me which I really appreciated.
Our second session together we did Hypnotherapy, at Hayley’s suggestion. I had never experienced it before, and was a little apprehensive. Because of how at ease I felt during the Reiki session, and how comfortable and safe I felt with Hayley, I decided to try it. I loved how much I was involved in the session. Before we started Hypnotherapy, we spoke about what I was wanting from the session and any concerns I may have had. Hayley explained the process to me in a very clear way, and at no point did I feel pressured. Any concerns I had previously, were gone. Hayley counted down and her voice guided me into a very peaceful state. It reminded me of the blissful state I have experienced in meditation, although the rate in which I reached this stillness was much faster. I was aware of everything around me, and listened to Hayley’s voice the entire time. I felt completely in control and at peace.
In the two Hypnotherapy sessions we did together, Hayley helped me to distinguish between my fear and my intuition. She helped me to distinguish between who to trust and who not to. After dating so many narcissists, and after attracting so many wounded people into my life, I needed to learn to trust my inner guiding system again. Hypnotherapy helped me to do that.
Since my two Hypnotherapy sessions I have been back to Hayley for Reiki, and plan to continue working with her on raising my vibration both through Reiki and Hypnotherapy. The energetic and emotional shift within me has been incredible. I am now attracting much better people into my life, and feel incredibly positive about what I have manifested. I am also in a new, beautiful, balanced love relationship.
I would recommend Holistic Healing Cape Town to anybody, and plan to refer my own patients to Hayley in the future. Much love – Caitlin, 31
