Hello and welcome, my name is Ruth Bernstein.
I'm a qualified Reiki Master Practitioner & Accredited Hypnotherapist. I was widowed 10 years ago, which I suppose is when my interest in Universal Energy and Spirituality deepened. After working full time for most of my career, I felt the time was right for me to focus on helping others. I've always enjoyed working with the public, my previous post being a customer advisor with local authority. After reducing my hours I worked part time as a deputy registrar at Liverpool Register Office. I am the mother of two grown sons and grandmother to two young grandsons.
I have an inquisitive mind and believe that "everything happens for a reason!" How I ended up as a Reiki Master and Hypnotherapist is difficult to pin point, but I guess in a nutshell I took the time out from a busy life to listen to what my intuition, soul, spirit whatever you want to call it was telling me and went with it.
What is Reiki?
Reiki combines the Japanese and Chinese word-characters of "rei" (spiritual or supernatural) and "ki" (vital energy). Reiki is a form of alternative medicine called energy healing. Reiki practitioners use a technique called palm healing or hands-on healing through which a "universal energy" is transferred through the palms of the practitioner to the client in order to encourage emotional or physical healing. One of the basic ideas held by those who practice Reiki is that this vital energy can be channelled to support the body's natural ability to heal itself.
I discovered Reiki whilst going through a period of bereavement. I had a personal introduction to a Reiki session and I was so impressed with the feeling of inner peace, well being and the positive emotional and physical benefits I experienced, I felt compelled to train as a therapist and go as far as I could - hence my becoming a Reiki Master. I utilise the use of energy clearing crystals, chakra balancing and visualisation during a Reiki experience.
I’d always had a keen interest in hypnosis and hypnotherapy, as an alternative therapy and felt strongly that it would compliment Reiki, giving added benefits to the client. I completed two Hypnotherapy training courses, acquiring diplomas in both.
What is Hypnosis?
Well let me explain what it isn't first of all. Hypnosis is not a state of deep sleep. You are in control at all times. You cannot be made to do something that you do not wish to do or which is in conflict with your own personal moral compass. A lot of people think of hypnosis as being in a trance-like state, but that’s not really an accurate description. Being in hypnosis is a natural state not unlike a daydream, it is a super relaxed state of mind and you remain in control the whole time. Hypnosis is the utilisation of an altered state of mind or trance, marked by a level of awareness different from the ordinary state of consciousness. Hypnotherapy is the use of hypnosis for a beneficial purpose. It suppresses the conscious mind allowing the subconscious to be open to suggestion.
The-healing-hut was something that began in my imagination and which I have now brought into being - such is the power of the mind. It literally is a little oasis; a sanctuary in my garden where people come to simply "be." No worries, no concerns, no shoulds, woulds, coulds are allowed to enter.
Life today is all go and so pressurised. If we don't take time out to get in touch with our "self", then we get lost somewhere along the way.
It's not selfish to put your "self" first once in a while. In fact, if you're feeling at your best then you're better able to help someone else.
That’s where Reiki, hypnotherapy and meditation can help. I provide the use of quartz crystals and guided visualisation during my Reiki sessions, to enhance the experience.
If you have any questions whatsoever, then please do not hesitate to contact me.
