“Hypnotherapy brought me peace and forgiveness”
– Duda Jadrijevic, 39
After her father died, Duda had past-life regression hypnotherapy to help heal her grief and unravel their complicated relationship.
“My father and I had an intense relationship. There was a lot of love but also a lot of disagreement, because he was critical of my sensitive, artistic side. When he died, it opened up old emotional wounds. I realised I wasn’t comfortable with my softer, feminine side and had problems with relationships with men, and it was linked to my father.
I wanted to understand my emotional wounds and I knew that when you do regression hypnotherapy, you can have an encounter with people who’ve passed away, so I booked a session.
My hypnotherapist reassured me that I was 100 per cent in control of the process, so I never felt scared. Regressive hypnotherapy is a peaceful experience that explores the journey of your soul across lifetimes, and is almost like meditating. I saw seven of my past lives, which gave
me insight into my present life. In one life, I was an ambitious lawyer in the late 18th century. In this life, I’m strong, focused and determined in my work, but in my private life I’m quite shy and sensitive.
The therapist asked if I wanted to go into a place where I could meet my father. It was like I was sitting on the edge of the world looking out at the universe, and suddenly my father appeared through a series of images. In this encounter, he apologised for being so critical of me, admitting that my vulnerability reminded him of his own. He said that because of how he had treated me, I had created a huge wall, but I needed to remove those barriers and combine my strength with my vulnerability.
After the session, I actually mended. The forgiving communication brought me peace and helped me love myself for who I am. A year later, I met my soul mate in Bali – a man who loves my sensitivity.” innerbalancehypnotherapy.co.uk Skype sessions available.
