C (Client)

T (Therapist)

The session started with a prayer and lighting a diya, followed by progressive relaxation and Dave Elman technique. After that the client appeared deeply relaxed and in trance state. Client visualized a divine light and described the light is in white color and round in shape. Then I encouraged her to heal herself from head to toe using this divine light. She described a sensation of negativity leaving her body, particularly through her head in the form of smoke.

The therapist then addressed the inner child, focusing on two major incidents from the client’s childhood. Re-framing techniques were applied to help the client process and re-frame these experiences.

Client Feedback

The client is happy. She doesn’t have any fear now.


Good work @ashmitavgg304.

Further to above,

In my humble opinion we could probably have explored this aspect of cancer as well to ascertain the root cause and attempt to resolve it


Dear Ashmita,

Compliments for bringing the much needed healing and resolutions to a 14 years young client who has a long long life to tread ahead… :yellow_heart:

My feedback is as under for your consideration please,

Amazing … :yellow_heart:

We may not suggest the seeking forgiveness part to the client. We expect these to come from the client’s higher consciousness.

Consider : What could be the reason for her crying out aloud? What comes to your awareness?

:pray: :pray: :pray:

Consider using present tense to keep the experience stronger as if
NOW (In Time) AND HERE (Space).

May be we could have explored if client is carrying any emotion from this incident.

Consider : what would it take to resolve this fear of dying early?

May be we could have dealt with the client in a more empathetic way in our suggestion by utilising the amazing tool of paraphrasing taught by our beloved Guru. :pray:

Here again, consider steering the session in a manner so that all the learnings and resolutions emerge from the client’s higher consciousness.

Great work fear completely gone
but we also intend the pain level to come to 0…

Best Wishes

Congratulations on your first post and session @ashmitavgg304

The stage 6 has been done very well.

Client being a K, what should’ve been the suggestion?

Once again wrong suggestion as this is more like mind reading and leading the client into an experience. [quote=“ashmitavgg304, post:1, topic:1566”]
C: I can see my grandmother.

T: Take her blessings. Ask her to forgive you if you’ve done anything. Share all your feeling with her.

As therapists our priority is for the client to discover all this for themselves.

It would have been appropriate to empathise,

Ashmita, remember being a therapist demands that we are in control of your mental processes and can remain calm and help the client discover their unconscious in the most patient manner possible.


thank you for your valuable suggestion as I have a lot to learn my second phase of learning started by entering amarontos after a so long year I thank venu sir and all for correcting me, my second case is also kanada, I have to translate from english to kanada and again from kanada to english as its start of my new journey , sure i will follow your suggestion.
