Meet the Practitioners Series: Past Life Regressionist Didi Graves

Feeling comfortable with your practitioner is critical with any healing art. So we’ve introduced the “Meet the Practitioners Series” to give you an opportunity to get to know us. First up is Past Life Regressionist Didi Graves, who offers hypnotherapy at Seattle Healing. Learn more about Didi, what brought her to the field of hypnotherapy, and why you should try it.

This capability is especially valuable to clients who don’t live in the area. We sat down with one Seattle Healing client, Nici, who lives in the Northeast Ohio area and has been working with Laura since September 2014. Nici has family who resides in Seattle, and she initially met with Laura on a visit to the area. But after returning home to Ohio, Nici knew that she still needed Laura’s help, and she remembered the Skype capability. That’s when everything fell into place. What brought you to Laura and Seattle Healing? My sister and her friends had visited Laura for a variety of reasons, and they all recommended her. I was very interested in talking with Laura as a Life Coach because at that time in my life, I really needed advice about my career and where my life was headed. So I met with her in person for three sessions, but about four months later, I realized that I needed to talk with her again. And since January, I’ve been Skyping with Laura regularly. How was the transition from in-person sessions to Skype sessions? I had zero transition issues at all. With Skype, it really is like talking to Laura in person because we’re having such a normal conversation. I still have that same personal interaction without needing to be in the office. I can see
