Frequently Asked Questions

What is a warrior spirit, and who has one?

Everyone has a warrior spirit. It is, put simply, the gateway to your soul’s purpose: the heart of who you are, and what you are capable of as an individual human being. Your warrior spirit saves, conquers, inspires, motivates, heals, loves, and believes. It helps you control your emotions and reactions. It strengthens your mind. And it’s the essence of the principles guiding your thoughts and behaviours.

Can Beth help me find or “fix” my warrior spirit?

Yes. Using a blend of intuitive energy healing techniques and Shamanism, Beth can help access—and even repair—your personal warrior spirit by activating and healing your non-conscious mind, and the root causes of whatever adverse effects you may be experiencing in life, mentally, physically and/or emotionally. This ultimately helps reconnect you to the essence of who you are and strengthens you from the inside out.

What types of people does Beth help?

In terms of treatments and counseling support, Beth helps a wide range of people experiencing various life situations. Some are military and first responders. Some are single moms, business owners, young adults, retirees, people living with addiction … the list goes on. What all clients have in common is that they each want to live a happier, healthier, more joyful life.

I have a lot of triggers. Can Beth help me with those?

Yes. As you know, when you are triggered so regularly, it can often feel like a series of emotional bombs being set off inside you. Beth’s ultimate goal is to help you defuse those triggers and live a more peaceful, “trigger-proof” life.

 

How do treatment sessions work? Where is Beth located?

Beth offers three options for treatment sessions: at her office in Manotick, over the phone, or via Zoom. Especially given the conditions of the world in 2020, offering the comfort and safety of a distanced session over the phone or via Zoom allows for your peace of mind while continuing to effectively support and help you process whatever it is you are going through.

How does this type of healing work?

First and foremost, it is all about energy. Energy and consciousness are expansive; they have no beginning and no end, and they exist everywhere—such as within your cells. In fact, everything you experience in life, whether positive or negative, gets stored in your cellular “memories” and recorded deep within your non-conscious mind (similar to the hard drive of a computer).

As a trained and highly experienced Spiritual Healer, Shaman, and Reiki Master, Beth can “access” those negative experiences you have stored in your cells and mind. She is able to locate them, and even identify them as the root causes of anything negative you may be experiencing today. She then releases them from the cells and the mind, helping your body rebuild healthier cells and restructure your mind so you are no longer affected or influenced by the negative or traumatic experiences of the past.

How can Beth help me if the session is not done in-person or face-to-face?

This is a very popular question. As mentioned above, energy and consciousness are expansive—which means they can be accessed and worked on, even from a distance. During the “distanced sessions,” Beth will first take time to connect with you, to give her a better sense of the type(s) of healing she will use to get to the root of your pain. She will then work on you from afar through either conscious mapping, visualization therapy, or tapping into your energetic system intuitively.

What is Shamanism, and how can it help me?

Shamanism originated in Siberia amongst the Tungus tribe and has been practiced worldwide by various cultures for centuries. Trained facilitators use this methodology to access different states of consciousness (trance)—which helps them gain insight, get to the root causes of most issues, and most importantly, heal them. Clients who receive Shamanism treatments can experience positive "miraculous" results quite quickly.

Some Shamans are known for using mind-altering substances to help themselves and their clients access the hidden parts of the non-conscious mind. However, Beth does not use any hallucinogens or mind-altering substances in her practice; in fact, she is able to achieve the same results, if not better, 100% naturally.

Beth received her medicine rites and has trained in Shamanism since 2015 with Pete Bernard (8th Fire School of Shamanism) of the Algonquins Pikwakanagan First Nation.
She continues to further her expertise and studies in Shamanism with the 8th Fire’s two-year Intermediate Shamanism Program: the Way of the Medicine Keeper.

I have only tried “traditional,” more scientifically proven therapy. What can Beth offer that they can’t?

What Beth offers is different than what a certified, licensed medical professional (like a psychologist, physician, or psychotherapist) can provide.

Often, people seek help from Beth to look deeper within, so they may take a new and unchartered path toward health, peace, and happiness. In essence, they are choosing to honour and strengthen themselves, with Beth as their guide.

Please know that it is 100% normal, healthy, and understandable to feel apprehensive about “alternative” wellness methods, such as Shamanism and Spiritual/Energetic Healing. All you need to do is look to Beth’s clients to understand that what she does works. Check out their testimonials here to hear their personal stories, in their own words. They are incredibly inspiring.

I am currently seeing a “traditional” therapist. Is it safe to try their approach and spiritual healing at the same time? Or should I just stick to just one specialist?

Think of it this way: when you have a physical injury, you realize very quickly that you need help from a variety of experts. You will start with your GP, who may send you to any number of specialists: a chiropractor, or massage therapist, or physiotherapist … maybe even all three.

Likewise, when it comes to bringing your entire mind, body, soul, and spirit to a state of inner peace, you will not necessarily get all the support you need from just one provider.

The help and healing Beth provides can be your only support if you wish, or you may wish to combine it with other methods. If you are not sure what to do, speak with your therapist and also contact Beth regarding your specific situation. If Beth feels there are better solutions out there for you, she will be happy to recommend them.

Does Beth provide physical healing as well as spiritual counseling?

Beth works beyond the physical expressions of our ailments and wounds, trying to understand the reasons behind why something expresses itself the way it does in our bodies. This can often affect positive changes in our cellular structures, and our nervous systems, which in many cases leads to immense feelings of rest, relaxation and peace. 

Does Beth treat depression and anxiety?

Under Beth’s guidance, many people living with mental illness have been able to access their inner warrior, aka their inner strength, and identify the root causes of their sadness and anxieties—leading to a greater sense of purpose and inner peace.

Please note: Beth does not offer medical or psychological services. Please contact your healthcare provider for those services.
 

Do I have to talk during sessions?

No. This is not the same as traditional talk therapy. Sometimes, people are so emotional during sessions that they are simply unable to talk. So you do not have to speak if you don’t want to.

However, if you are able to talk even just a little, Beth will ask how you are feeling when you first arrive. If you are comfortable discussing what is going on with you, she may ask a few other questions. By gathering as much insight as she can from you, this helps Beth determine what best to do in your session, and more effectively get to the root causes of whatever is troubling you.
 

In a private session, will I feel some sort of “charge”—that is, will I actually feel energy running through me?

It differs for everyone. You may literally feel some sort of energy flow. Or, you may simply sense something changing. For example, Beth’s clients have said things at the end of a session like “I don’t know why, but my hip feels better,” or “I don’t know why, but I’m not as angry at this person anymore.” Everyone experiences their sessions in their own unique, individual way.

I’m not comfortable being touched. Does there have to be physical contact?

No. Many people have experienced trauma and do not want to be touched. The good news is that there is no end to energy because energy connects everything—even from thousands of miles away. Whatever your comfort level is, Beth will work within it.
 

How many sessions will I need with Beth?

It depends on the client. Generally, clients come for a series of sessions, during which Beth helps resolve all those inner conflicts and ailments you may be consciously and unconsciously fighting. Over time, you will begin feeling stronger, trusting your own intuition, making better choices, and feeling more in command of your life. As a result, there is always a point where your sessions will come to an end when you feel ready.

What are Beth’s prices?

Beth’s services are $100 per hour for "distanced" sessions over the phone or via Zoom, and $120 for in-person sessions at the Misiwe Ni Relations Healing Lodge (Manotick, ON).
