Hypnotic Regression and Healing the Unconscious Mind
How hypnosis can reveal experiences hidden in your unconscious mind.

Our mind is uniquely prepared to experience the continuity of time. While we are advised to live in the here and now, we all wander into the past or future. Our memory and imagination vary greatly from person to person. Even if you can remember every detail from your life, nobody can recall how these events affected them. The mind automatically filters out certain experiences out of normal memory. So, what kind of stuff becomes unavailable to our own thinking? Actually, there is a lot of information that never gets stored in our memory banks in the first place but, even more importantly, there are plenty of experiences that cannot be recalled because they are repressed - kept out of our awareness somehow.
Hypnosis is one of the best ways to help people access those “buried” memories. Everyone has memories or experiences in their unconscious mind that they may not be able to recall but still play a significant role in everyday life. Hypnotic Regression is the process by which you enter a trance and recall material from deep inside that is normally not available to the conscious mind.

Regression is the process by which the hypnoterapist guides you back through time to particular events that need to be examined. There are a number of effective techniques to facilitate this process. The hypnotic trance enhances your ability to remember events that you otherwise cannot recall. A good question is ‘why is it difficult to recall some memories and not others?’ Part of this answer can actually be attributed to Freud who described the function of the unconscious mind in great detail. This deeper unconscious sphere of mental activity can be compared to an iceberg, the large bulk of which is out-of-sight beneath the ocean surface. Similarly, your mind has many activities that operate outside your awareness for good reasons. The brain evolved to economize our focus of attention to limit the amount of what is in our awareness.

The real problem is when we experience events that were unpleasant, painful, embarrassing, or just difficult to cope with, which sometimes push these memories out of the conscious mind down into that hidden reservoir of the mind - the subconscious. These can be traumatic experiences, or just awkward ones that we do not want to remember or cannot recall because they were repressed out of awareness. Everybody has memories buried in the unconscious. Most of these memories are not that scary or horrible but some can be very uncomfortable to face. Many of the more dramatic things that happened to you as a child are resting in your unconscious, even if you can remember these events, some of their effects remain unobservable to the average person. That is where hypnosis comes in. Through a trance we can open the door to the subconscious mind and help find the conflicts, turmoil, hidden pain, expose the obstacles, the self sabotage, and reveal the invisible connections between events and feelings. Regression done by a skilled professional can be very healing and transformative. It often brings up new insights into how your mind works and what really happened to you as a child. Most of the memories revealed are not tragic or horrific but, they often help heal the wounds or conflicts we experience in daily life. Occasionally, traumatic events can come up that require very skilled resolution. That is precisely why, it is important that hypnotic regressions are performed by a highly skilled hypnotherapist that knows how to carefully dig for these memories without ever “planting” false memories into the person.

Letter of Reference for Carla Van Voorst
For the Okanagan Natural Care Centre

I have known Carla for over a decade.

During that time she has worked with, and on me using a variety of modalities such as Reiki, Bodytalk, Working with Crystals and Hypnotherapy; all of which balance and heal in different ways.

After our sessions together, I have always felt more at peace and invigorated, and she has always been able to answer all of my questions.

She never forces me to do talk about, or deal with anything I'm not comfortable with, and explains things in an easy to understand manner.

I recommend her and her talents to anyone who is looking for ways of getting into a better state, whether it be physically, mentally, emotionally or spiritually.

Thank you for your time.

To Whom it May Concern;

I have been seeing Carla as a Body Talk Practitioner for about 4 years now. I originally began to see her because the arthritis in my hand was extremely bad – I couldn’t hold a fork!! It only took a few sessions and I have full function back in my hand!!

I have seen Carla many times over the years, and now that she is a certified hypnotherapist, it is even better!! Between the two modalities, it seems that any healing that is required is much faster!!

I recommend Carla to everyone.

Thank you,
Daneaya Ziolkoski



To whom it may concern: 

This letter is a reference for Carla Van Voorst. 

Carla has been treating me for a year and a half. During the time Carla has been treating me, my life has improved drastically . I have regained my health back both mentally and physically. When I first started seeing Carla I was extremely sick with multiple ailments in which she has completely cured me from. Carla has given me a quality of life again that I did not think was possible. I would highly recommend Carla and know she will be a phenomenal asset to your team.



Carla van Voorst. In 1995 Carla found that her ailing husband’s health was not improving despite being fully immersed in the standard allopathic medical Association. She started doing energy healing and got him out of bed. Realizing this was actually working, she continued learning in many different modalities. Starting with Pranic Healing, Reiki, and Crystal healing, in 2007 she discovered BodyTalk, a comprehensive and multi-faceted discipline, and became a certified Body Talk practitioner. The BodyTalk System facilitates communication with the innate wisdom of the body by using a form of biofeedback. BodyTalk stimulates recovery, balance and good health on all levels. One area, PaRama, is BodyTalk for the brain, which addresses depression and imbalances. Body Ecology works on the microbiome to help strengthen the mutualist microbes while reducing the pathogens.
