Information about Private Sessions for the Mind, Body and Spirit
by Carol Woodliff
Do you feel stuck? Is there something calling for you to express it in the world and yet there is something that keeps you from moving forward? Are you struggling with a health issue and know that there is an emotional or energetic component that if released would help you in your question for healing?
Often we have patterns in our subconscious or shadow side that keep us from living the life we want to live. We try all sorts of things–therapy, coaching and yet we still aren’t living in full expression or full health. Every human has his or her own path to follow in life and my job is to hold space and healing energy so that you can clear the things blocking you.
My work combines ancient healing techniques that have been passed down from Wisdomkeepers of tribes from South America with Western ideas of shadow, subconscious work from my study of hypnosis, archetype and personal mythic journeys from thought leaders like Carl Jung and Joseph Campbell.*
As human beings we exist on at least four planes of existence:
- The Physical–what is going on in your body and physical world
- The Mental and Emotional–our thoughts and feelings
- The Mythic or Soul Level–the larger over arching patterns or soul contracts that seem to run through our lives. E.g., “I have to do everything myself” or “I am not good enough”
- The Energetic or Spirit Level–Each of us as we are has patterns or imprints that come from many places: what we have experienced in our lives, family and generational patterns that have been passed to us, past live or soul contract energies. Many of these are subconscious energies that we don’t even have the words for. We just know that something isn’t working.
Is it time to write a new story? What is happening in your world now and how would you like it to be different? One of the things that distinguishes this work from traditional forms of therapy is that we want to release the old story quickly. We don’t want to focus on that old story that reinforces realities that are not healthy for us. We spend our time creating space for the new vision to take hold and to dream and to take action to bring that vision into being.
Your session is custom designed for you but most often we start with with a process called Illumination, which is a subtle, yet powerful energy process which clears the imprints of past experiences (karma) from the Luminous Energy Field. Think of it as removing the sludge from your past which may be bogging you down energetically emotionally or physically. There is a theory that the body itself is the subconscious mind. By working directly through the body we can release stored patterns without having to think about them and put them into language. This process can be done in person or over the phone. It involves gentle breathing and intention to help move the energy that no longer serves you.
We may also work with techniques such as past life regression, creating new mythic stories, soul retrieval journeys and energy extractions to help you develop a clear connection with your authentic self. We then can move to techniques from hypnosis and coaching to help your mind and actions catch up with your energy.
There is no way around it, you have to do your own work outside of the sessions. I’m here to support you in creating the plan to help you take action in your day to day life.

From Carol’s Clients
“[Working] with Carol helped me get unstuck in an area in my life where I knew the answers for myself in my head, but I had a lot of fear and anxiety that was slowing me down and tripping me up. It was one of the most relaxing experiences I’ve ever had — similar to getting a massage or spending time at a spa. A few times in my life, I’ve had really deep, vivid dreams where all my worries were left behind, far away, and I had wonderful adventures that I remembered clearly when I woke up and that helped me understand my life and the direction I needed to go in next more clearly. Hypnotherapy was a lot like that. I was like voluntarily going into one of those rare, memorable dreams with someone safe who would help me look around inside of it and explore it and then talk about it and help me think through it afterward. For me, it was like getting my anxiety massaged away so that I could see the situations around me more clearly and approach my life in ways that worked better for me.” Jill Doughtie, Pasadena, CA.
I was diagnosed with ”trigger fingers” in my right hand; the doctor gave me a shot and said if it didn’t get better, he would have to do surgery. It got a little better, but the pain continued so I went to see Carol and she applied shamanic energy to my hand. Ever since she treated me my pain is very minimal (just after one session). Not only did Carol help me with my hand, but I also felt the energy all over my body. I remember that at the end of the session I felt my chakras vibrating with an incredible energy. I can’t wait until I go back for more treatment! Amy V. Altadena, CA
“I have worked with Carol as both a hypnotherapist and writing coach and I find her superb at both. I am a very private person who never considered seeking a therapist to help me navigate through certain paths in my life until Carol. In addition, I have worked with Carol for 7-8 months as a writing coach in helping me with my master’s program thesis which was extremely valuable time and money well spent. 98% of my time with Carol has been through Skyping sesssions which I found to be great for my schedule. I consider her one of the people in my life that I will consistently seek for her expertise as a life coach.” DF, Long Beach, CA
*Check out my “about me” page for a bio of my training and experience. I am not a licensed psychologist or medical doctor. I work in the spiritual and energetic realm as an urban shaman and spiritual teacher. I fold into my practice teachings of some our great Western thought leaders in the area of shadow & archetypes. Our work is a great companion for Allopathic or Western medicine and traditional psychology.
