Praise from clients
"Without the healing sessions and guidance from Padma for the weeks leading up to my unexpected divorce, I know that the transition from married for 35 years to suddenly single would have been traumatic for me. Instead, I am able to move forward in my life with ease and grace. Deepest gratitude, Padma, for helping me to find the strength and power of my inner being!"
~ Pamela Stokes, Founder of Somatic Release LLC
“Padma is an excellent space holder and skillful guide directing me back to my body, to what is true and what needs my attention so that change and healing may occur.”
~ Jordan P., Financial Consultant
“Through customized hypnosis meditations I was able to rewrite the core beliefs that were limiting my life. Padma helped me follow these old tapes to their core, through movement, talk, crying and laughing, and, as I listened to them daily I internally updated so I can be who I am in the world today. Thank you Padma!”
~ Lauren M., Sales Representative
“My experience of Padma’s work is that whatever arises is to be welcomed and embraced. Padma facilitates self-inquiry. She is very skillful at directing me deeper into my own experience. She holds the space for me to discover exactly what I need to discover in the moment and she is a very skillful facilitator and knows when guidance is needed. She gives me all the time I need to settle deeper into the truth of who I am.”
~ Michael M., Massage Therapist
“Padma does amazing work helping you find the core of what needs attention. Her intuitive nature allows the uncovering of the real issue - sometimes issues bubble to the surface that I didn't even know were on the docket! Padma facilitates movement in my body, mind and spirit and gives me practical ways of implementing change in both my personal and professional life.”
~ Kathleen F., Preschool Teacher
"I’ve been meaning to send you a message for some time and when I just now saw your latest video about self-acceptance I knew it was time. I’m writing you to thank you again for our hypnotherapy sessions and the recordings of them that we did over Skype. They have been helping me immensely these last years. My heart has really opened and I’ve become skilled at giving and receiving kindness.
I’m leaning into the sweet connections I feel with people I meet instead of reeling back with feelings of unworthiness just like you told me a thousand times by now. The power of repetition is great and wonderful if applied for something wonderful."
