A psychotherapist inspired healer
Anita Sawyer Vasan to fulfil her destiny
In May 2016, I had given up on the dream I’d cherished since my early twenties, of helping others through psychotherapy.
By that stage, I had experienced a lot of therapy myself. And, although I started psychotherapy training twice, in 1996 and 2013, it didn’t work out, due to my nagging fear that I had too many problems myself to be able to help others.
I was now in my fifties and happier and more settled than I had ever been, so I tried to focus on my work teaching and assessing adults and children with learning difficulties. But deep down, I had this ‘knowing’ that I was meant to be doing something else with my life.
That all changed in 2016. Through my work I encountered a man called
Colin* who’d been bullied at school and at work because of his dyslexia.
I listened to his experiences, wishing I knew how to help more. Several days later, he emailed me and asked if I would give some counselling to a friend. I explained that
I wasn’t a qualified counsellor but that I did have experience of using reiki in my work with special needs children and their parents, and had training in coaching skills.
Colin’s friend said she would love to see me and I suddenly realised I had to succeed in training to be a psychotherapist.
I searched high and low on the internet for the right training.
I wanted something holistic that would enable me as a therapist to understand what was happening at a psychological level with my clients’ thoughts and feelings, and also facilitate physical healing.
After hours of trawling, I came across the Spiritual Counselling Diploma, developed by psychotherapist, energy healer and author Blue Marsden. It was perfect!
Meant to be
I was already feeling completely inspired by Blue and bought his book, Soul Plan.
Following his instructions in the book, I drew up my own soul plan and discovered that my soul destiny was to be a healer and teacher. I wasted no time in applying for the Diploma and not long after was invited for an interview with Blue. I was accepted on the course, and was soon starting the first module, chi kung – wonderful flowing movements similar to tai chi – which supports healing work.
Blue then told us about Soul Transformation Therapy training, which teaches practitioners to use Soul Plan energy cards to identify blocked energy or negative beliefs held in the subconscious and release them so the client can achieve their destiny.
I just knew it was something I needed to learn, and signed up to the training course.
On the first day, Blue said to me, ‘You are meant to be here.’ I was so grateful. His words addressed all the doubts I could barely voice to myself and reassured me that I was in the right place.
I haven’t just benefited from Blue’s teaching on the Diploma, I’ve also been lucky enough to have first-hand experience of his healing work, in the form of Soul Transformation Therapy using Aquarian, Atlantean, Shamanic paddles.
When moved around over the body, these spiritual tools release energy blockages. They combine magnetic energies, colour vibrations and universal symbols, to balance you mentally, physically and spiritually. In my case, Blue used them to help me break free from a suppressed childhood trauma, which had been stopping me from achieving my full potential.
Since finishing my training in June, I’ve been able to be of service in the way my soul destiny intended. I now offer Soul Transformation Therapy with Aquarian, Atlantean, Shamanic paddles, as well as a range of healing techniques, including spiritual counselling, hypnotherapy, holistic healing and soul plan readings, to support emotional and spiritual healing for the mind, body and soul. Thank you, Blue!
