Welcome to Koru Self Development
I want to inspire you to create new choices for your future, encourage you to take a chance, do something different and to achieve your full potential.
The Koru symbol signifies new life, new growth, new beginnings. With this philosophy in mind, I established KORU SELF DEVELOPMENT to educate and teach others how to live empowered lives.
I am passionate about working in the area of transformational therapy as a Hypnotherapist, HypnoBirthing® Childbirth Educator, Reiki practitioner and a coach for personal growth, self development and healing.
I have developed my own unique healing style integrating several of the above modalities into a session, according to the clients needs.
The practice of promoting healing or positive development in any way, whilst in hypnosis, is known as hypnotherapy. As such, hypnotherapy is a kind of psychotherapy.
In therapy, hypnosis usually involves clients experiencing a sense of deep relaxation with their attention narrowed down, and focused on appropriate suggestions made by the therapist. These suggestions help clients make positive changes within themselves. They will be totally relaxed, but fully in control and aware of what is happening to them and around them.
Hypnosis involves the induction of a trance-like condition, but when in it, the client is actually in an enhanced state of awareness, concentrating entirely on the hypnotist's voice. In this state, the conscious mind is suppressed and the subconscious mind is revealed. During this time, the hypnotherapist works with clients giving them appropriate, positive suggestions, while using techniques that will assist them achieve their goals.
HypnoBirthing® is a relaxing, rewarding, stress free method of birthing that is based on the belief that all babies should come into the world in an atmosphere of gentleness, calm and joy.
Caterina is an accredited HypnoBirthing Practitioner. At HypnoBirthing Childbirth Education classes, mothers and their birth companions discover how to enjoy an easier and more comfortable birth experience. They learn how to let go of fears relating to birth, deep relaxation, special breathing techniques to assist through all stages of labour, how to use the body's own natural painkillers, and much more.
HypnoBirthing is as well as, rather than instead of, any other antenatal or medical care you may receive.
OTHER PREGNANCY SERVICES
Caterina also offers private sessions for mothers who require help to: release fears of birth or previous birth traumas; turn a breech presented baby; stop pre term labour; bond with your baby; positive breast feeding; overcome post natal depression and much more.
Reiki is a Japanese technique for relaxation that gently balances life energies and also promotes healing.
Reiki is not religious and is practiced by people of all religious persuasions as well as those with no religious convictions.
Reiki is very simple, non-invasive yet very powerful. It may be interpreted as the spiritual channelling of loving life-energy through gentle touch. As recipients relax, their own energy can flow in a more natural, self-healing way. During a Reiki treatment, recipients can enter a very deep state of relaxation. A one hour Reiki treatment is the physiological equivalent of 3-4 hours sleep. This makes it one of the most advanced natural stress reduction therapies available.
Reiki is an extremely high vibration energy which promotes the healing process on all levels – physical, emotional, mental and spiritual.
As part of her philosophy of personal growth and self empowerment, Caterina feels that it is important for Reiki recipients to know that they are participating in their own healing and that as a Reiki practitioner, she is just an aid to assist. The person has to be willing to heal.
REIKI FOR A HEALTHY PREGNANCY & POSTPARTUM
The benefits of Reiki given to a pregnant woman are countless. Reiki can be given, to both the mother and the baby, throughout pregnancy, during birth and after birth. Use of Reiki before, during, and after pregnancy has positive results both for the mother and the baby.
You don't need to be into spiritual stuff or anything else, it is just a great opportunity for you to relax and for your baby to soak up some good vibes before the challenge of childbirth and life itself.
Benefits of Reiki during Pregnancy:
*Reiki provides emotional as well as physical support to the pregnant woman.
*Reiki creates a balanced, loving and harmonious relationship between the mother and the child.
*Reiki when practiced in the early days of the pregnancy helps reduce exhaustion and nausea in the pregnant woman.
*Brings relief to every part of a stretched and aching body of the woman.
*Reduces anxiety, sleep problems, colic, and enhances motor activity and active sleep.
*Reiki is done to restore the balance and health to the pregnant mother.
Mothers who use Reiki during and after pregnancy can better adjust to their babies and vice versa. Reiki has the power to make a baby wriggle with pleasure in the womb, and also has a calming effect on both the mother and the child.
As a professional life coach, I work with people who want to achieve more in their lives and I assist them to close the gap between where they are and where they want to be.
We work together to discover what is important to them, what is missing from their lives or their business and what outcomes they are looking for. The outcome of coaching is long term excellence and the ability for clients to move forward on their own.
As a life coach I use multiple methods, including NLP, to help my clients with the process of setting and reaching goals.

“If you always do what you’ve always done, you’ll always get what you’ve always got. If what you are doing is not working, do something else”.
