CRYSTAL THOMAS
Australia | Ongoing Private Sessions

 

"I wasn’t seeking profound healing from the outset. While I was feeling good, my goal was to further develop my ability to use my felt-sense to tap into my intuitive wisdom. 


Since our first session I’ve observed a noticeable shift. I’ve become more interested in recognizing somatic signals in my body.

 

Each session has left a clear imprint. I’ve brought in ponderings or sticking points to explore, and we’ve delved deep into each issue. I feel empowered and equipped with somatic tools to give myself what I need after each session.

 

I appreciate getting to speak while moving. Being fully immersed in the somatic experience allows me to freely express the visions and feelings without needing to rationalize them. I let the words flow and Ana reflects back as we collaboratively uncover their significance. 

 

One thing I particularly like is that we don’t rush into meaning-making. It allows for an intuitive flow of information rather than premature cognitive interpretation. Insights emerge organically.

 

Even when bodily sensations are initially vague or unclear, they will lead to practical insights and clearer understandings soon. 

 

At times, thoughts may seem concrete at the beginning, but without the freedom to move and evolve, they can become stuck in a loop. Through our sessions, I’ve learned to trust the wisdom of my body. 

 

Once my body is moving, accessing my true feelings becomes easier. It stirs up thoughts and emotions, creating space in the mind to think more expansively.

 

I feel a strong sense of support in Ana’s presence, even in our online sessions. The environment she creates feels safe and nurturing. 

 

This type of therapy offers me tools. I leave each session feeling a tangible internal sense that I can revisit these somatic tools whenever needed. It simplifies the story and offers me tangible strategies for navigating life. 

 

People should know that this work provides practical solutions to problems and helps simplify action patterns, making them less complex than those we generate cognitively. 

 

I feel empowered to navigate life guided by what feels right, and have clear understanding of images and sensation to access when things don’t feel good. 

 

I’ve found that nothing dissipates hyperarousal more effectively than accessing the visual and felt sense unique to me - aiding calmness and a sense of safety.”​

“Before starting this work, I felt isolated, lonely, misunderstood, lost, and scared. 

 

Now, I feel empowered and connected with myself. I was able to rebuild trust, respect, and love for me. 

 

This has been the best gift that I could give myself. It has put me on a path of healing, conscious change, and integration. 

I feel more like myself, and reconnected with dear aspects of me that I had abandoned along the way. 

 

Ana’s approach is so effective. She knows when to push me a little further and when to pause and reshape things. I feel so safe and taken care of. 

 

Reconnecting with my body and creativity has been liberating, to say the least. 

 

With Ana’s guidance, I am able to connect and harmonize all aspects of myself, and to find alignment and build trust within.

 

Each session is unique and full of gifts. I feel enormous growth, which I’m so proud of!

 

I am allowing healing to happen from within, and trusting myself rather than doubting my mind and body. 

 

It’s been instrumental in my journey, representing a paradigm shift in how I perceive and nurture myself. 

 

Each step has been an act of self-love and patience as I discover myself more deeply.

 

Ana’s unwavering guidance and encouragement has given me the boost I needed to commit to this challenging yet deeply rewarding process. Undoubtedly, this therapeutic experience stands as the most significant and impactful investment I’ve made in myself.”

“Ana brilliantly balances gentle guidance, affirming insights, and encouraging pushes. She normalizes the clumsy start of getting into your body and the ups and downs along the way as we reintegrate emotional, physical, and spiritual body. It's work that is best experienced versus described and I think everyone should explore it, especially with such an open-hearted and knowledgable guide."

ERCOLI C.

I felt both challenged and supported, guided towards new insights and yet given so much space to explore what was there for me. Harnessing creativity, we worked together to explore my subconscious thoughts and beliefs, and it was through revealing these unknowns that I feel more equipped to handle certain challenges in my life. I cannot recommend Ana and her approach enough."

They help me learn about myself in a very healthy and unique way. I've learned to better manage stress and prioritize my needs. I've gained perspective and a new sense of resiliency as I continue to work on self-acceptance and self-love. Ana is flexible, patient, and has a way of being that makes me feel supported.

“Ana has a powerful presence that is so inviting, nurturing, motivating, and inspiring. Working with her has brought much healing and joy into my life. I've been more loving, kind, and respectful of my body. I've realized how important it is to slow down, play, and practice acceptance and trust. I feel much more grounded and centered when I do this work, and that I can be a better friend, wife, daughter, employee, and just so much more present with the people in my life."

FRED P.

Los Angeles | Single Private Session

“After our session, I felt my mind and body getting closer to merging. I gained awareness of different parts of my body, my posture, and learned to adjust it in a way that made me feel more relaxed and present. I was able to focus, and I realized how hard I can be on myself - and, that I love to make art! The session was reaffirming of my value (I'm more talented and intuitive than I thought). Working with Ana is fun and supportive; if you surrender to the process you can get a lot out of it. I left with a deep sense that the world is big, I am small, but I have a natural place in it."

“It wildly exceeded my expectations. This work is a salvation! It helped me to safely revisit issues I tend to avoid and explore my self-image in a way that was important. Being in a judgment-free space while touching on such deep aspects of ourselves was beautiful, and to explore myself with freedom and no fear of the ugly was wonderful. I left feeling that freedom is about how I feel in my body and with myself."

This series helped me to reconnect with myself and guide me through my current process of empowerment. I wanted to give my body the space to be but never knew how. I loved moving and making art! By the last class, my movements were more natural and I felt I was allowing myself. I also LOVED the creative collaboration with other women, it always helped me with insights I didn't realize alone. I'm ready to be more present in myself and for myself, and trusting my body and creative expression more."

“I've felt so powerful since the workshop, even amidst some challenges. It helped me to come back to myself, realizing how I simultaneously feel like I'm too much and not enough. Ana creates a very safe space. I'm usually shy feeling vulnerable around strangers, but there, I felt at ease! I was positively impacted by the work; I've noticed that I've been more conscious and feeling more aligned with my vision. This is such a valuable and beautiful practice, and I absolutely recommend it to all women, especially those struggling to find their voice and feel trapped by patriarchal conditioning."

“You need to experience this work. I'm jolted into my body in a gentle and safe way. I feel my emotions as my mind quiets and my true self steps forward. Present with my body, I feel deep sadness for the years I spent away from it, and also deep trust and acceptance. The most unexpected outcome from these sessions has been the absolute joy I feel. It's as if my soul and body are dancing together and recognizing why they chose each other for this life."
