About Theadora Sophia
Theadora Sophia ‘Teddi’ Rachlin
Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist, Registered Psychotherapist and Life Counselor
For as long as I can remember, I’ve been the one that people naturally seem to feel comfortable talking with. Somehow, they know that I can be trusted with surprisingly private details of their lives. I can understand multiple points of view simultaneously, and so can offer perspective or guidance. From being the Peacemaker on the playground to the Mentor in high school to the soothing voice at the other end of the Crisis Hotline in college, I have always loved helping people feel calmer and more in control of themselves and their behavior. Counseling was a natural choice for me. In many ways, I feel that this career chose me.
I did my undergraduate and graduate work in Psychology at the University of Manchester in England, where I graduated with an Honors degree in 1991. While recovering from a serious accident in 2002, I learned about Hypnotherapy and Hypnoanesthesia for pain control and found my deepest calling. Thrilled with the amazing results, I decided to study this specialization and earned a Certification in Clinical Hypnotherapy in 2003. Since then, I have been a ravenous student of psychotherapeutic modalities and personality theories, such as Neurolinguistic Programming, Jungian, Anthropological and Archetypal Psychologies and I’ve become masterful in making these tools accessible to my clients.
I provide Counseling and Life Coaching, specializing in a variety of subconscious modalities such as Mindfulness Training, Therapeutic Hypnosis and Past Life Regression Therapy. Since the subconscious is estimated to be at least 88 percent of the brain’s power, tapping into the motivations of the subconscious mind allows people to successfully make the changes they’ve been working on (or meaning to). My clients have very high success rates and feel so much more in control of their own lives. Many people find that just a few sessions is all that they need to get results!
I am also delighted to offer relationship guidance, meditation exercises, communication facilitation, personality analysis, guided imagery, and handwriting analysis. Through private sessions, public lectures, workshops and retreats, I’ve worked with thousands of people all over the world on issues ranging from smoking cessation, sleep issues and weight loss, to fears/phobias, anxiety and depression, sports performance, and pain management.
My philosophy? I believe in free-will and unlimited options. You can always choose a different path, a different way of thinking, feeling or acting. Those experiences that we had in the past prepared or programmed us for current beliefs and behaviors. However, if these perceptions no longer serve you well, then it’s time to Change Your Mind. Bottom line, the goal is well-being – to feel in control of your own emotional, physical, mental, psychological, and spiritual wellness.
My clients are safe to be themselves with me. I do not judge, criticize or attempt to control. I believe that most of us are doing the best that we can with the skills that we have acquired so far. The additional subconscious tools that I offer help people feel more in control of themselves, be able to release unwanted patterns, and increase self-respect and confidence.
I love to help people live the life of their choice through better choices!
