Hello, it’s a pleasure to greet you …
I am Lisa Owens, your Certified Professional Hypnotist & Transformational Healing Guide
For as long as I can remember (and we’re talking Elementary School years here so that’s like 40 something years ago) I was dubbed a ‘helper’ and that ‘helper’ continued on through school into adulthood with always wanting to help others. As an adult I was known to put everyone’s needs ahead of mine, but only because I thought that is what helpers did … they helped everyone who needed or asked for help, and they let their own needs be put to the wayside, because after-all helping others is a selfless act – RIGHT? (I touch on this statement below).
My life has been filled with trauma, beginning with the the separation of my parents when I was 3 years old followed by their divorce. I was ‘daddy’s little girl’ and to be taken away from him crushed my wee soul! Just before my 5th birthday my mom moved siblings & I in with her new partner and his three children. I was the youngest of a blended family in the mid 70’s, we were solely raised by my mom & her partner. On my 9th Birthday my dad completed suicide, crushing my wee soul a million times more. Unfortunately I didn’t have an opportunity to grow up knowing his family so his death left me feeling like a huge piece of me had died too! At the age of 16 my best friend & confidante, my little Duke (miniature poodle x), had to be put down … talk about crushing my soul yet again! I continued on as an adult entering relationships that were highly toxic, my maternal grandfather (my father figure) died, my son’s father ended his life, and one of my children was diagnosed with epilepsy & later lost his right eye in a horrific accident. I also experienced more losses of several key people in my life (maternal grandmother, mom, brother, uncle and 4 best friends) in a short time span all while raising four sons 100% on my own. Somehow I always managed to pick up the pieces & carry on but it was far from easy! There were several times I wanted to end my own life but somehow the miracle of life itself kept me alive. My desire to no longer live changed when I embarked on my journey into learning about the power of the mind through my hypnosis training.
In early 2016 I completed Usui Reiki Levels I & II. In early 2017 I took a 2 week Basic Hypnosis Course online and I couldn’t get enough. I was absolutely fascinated with the power of the mind so I began my hypnosis journey. Hypnosis changed my life in a very short time, enabling me to release limited beliefs, overcome trauma, rewrite stories that I created, release toxic people & situations from my life, and it assisted me with overcoming fears and phobias that were preventing me from enjoying my life. I am currently a Certified Professional Hypnotist working towards my Clinical Hypnotherapist Certification. So my ‘helper’ days from childhood have now guided me to become a Healer, of course I don’t technically ‘heal’ people but I guide them through the necessary process to help them heal themselves because after all, we have the ability to do just that … heal our own body.
Getting back to thinking that helping others came before my own highest good, I have now learned & realized that in order to be a true ‘helper/healer’ I need to put myself first because filling from an empty cup is impossible and as the saying goes “put your own oxygen mask on first” couldn’t be more true. So first & foremost I take self care seriously in order to assist me in successfully helping my clients.
Through all the trauma I have endured & overcome (and I didn’t mention it all), I can say now that I am in a much happier place then I ever have been and I am always learning, growing & evolving. I look forward to helping you so you too can heal and live the life you truly desire. To contact me click here.
