Hi, I am Lionie Fromentin, born and bred in Gauteng, South Africa. I immigrated to South Australia in 2009. At the start of 2014 I found myself going in the exact opposite direction to that which I wanted to in my life. In an attempt to get back on track, I decided to go away for a few days. Whilst buying supplies, I saw a book called “Excuses Begone”, by Dr Wayne Dyer. I thought to myself that if there was one thing that I was sure about in my life, it was that I had many excuses, so I bought the book. The week away and this book, started the change for me. During my process of healing, finding and loving myself, a deep understanding of a quote by Cynthia Occelli, arose and helped me:
“For a seed to achieve its greatest expression, it must come undone. The shell cracks, its insides come out and everything changes. To someone who doesn’t understand growth, it would look like complete destruction" - Cynthia Occelli. I found myself in a place of learning and wonder. I was amazed and excited, sometimes disappointed and disheartened, and yet something drove me on, pushed me to the next breakthrough, the next lesson, the next ‘Aha’ moment. I wanted to share this, and have other people experience it, so I decided to studytranspersonal counselling(TPC). Transpersonal counsellingincludes a wide range of therapy, as it not only looks at the mind, but it also includes the body and soul.
However, I found that many of my clients were still prevented from moving forward because of old beliefs, taboos and fears. To be able to address this effectively, I decided to become aNeuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP)practitioner. This enables me to help people face fears, change beliefs, and find out where the block originated from on a deeper level. To assist clients even more, I soon addedhypnosisto my toolbox, so that I could support people to work at an even deeper level, helping them to stop smoking, lose weight and/or improve their performance. StudyingReiki and relaxation massage simply felt like the right way to go, allowing me to truly give a 360 service.
