"Transformation will occur to you at a right timing with a right support. I am here for you to support your transformation. I will help enhance your innate ability to break patterns, utilizing cognitive, nervous & energetic methods. For instance, you have had a car accident before. You feel anxious whenever you see cars on the street. This means that the car accident is associated with the anxiety. I will help disconnect the anxiety from the car accident while rebuilding positive experiences in you. You will gradually re-associate the car accident with the positive experiences, transforming the old pattern."

You start to please everyone, and lose focus on your wants and needs. You begin to doubt yourself and your abilities, stay in unhealthy relationships, make self-destructive decisions (alcohol, promiscuity). You become stuck and cannot move forward.
