What is the Heartstream Process®
and how can it help me?

Beyond Counselling, To Healing The Root Cause Of Your Emotional Issue

Where counselling and other talk therapies help you to understand and manage your symptoms the Heartstream® Process goes much further by healing the root cause of your emotional "dis-ease" rapidly and permanently. 

The Heartstream Process® is a powerful process of transformation and healing that combines 5 modalities, EFT Tapping (Emotional Freedom Technique), Neuro-Linguistic Programming, Hypnotherapy, Mindfulness and Energy Healing.

The Heartstream Process® enables you to release and heal deep-seated emotional issues such as anxiety, trauma, addictions, depression and low self-worth quickly, naturally and with ease. The body is “wired” to heal itself in the same way as any physical injury. In fact, the body can heal not just on a physical level but also every level. All five modalities are effective and powerful in themselves but in combination; their synergy is what makes the Heartstream Process® both significant and profound.

The process will enable you, with my guidance, to tap into your own inner wisdom and find your own answers. You will understand yourself beneath the layers of your negative emotions and find the key to your own healing. Whether you are struggling with difficulties in your relationships whether at home or at work, coping with overwhelm, fears around rejection, abandonment, grief and not feeling good enough this process will move you from feeling stuck to feeling to a real sense of emotional relief and freedom.

I met Carolina at an EFT tapping event and was drawn to her warm and gentle presence. When she invited me to experience her Heartstream process I jumped at the opportunity, having heard that it was unique and powerful. I can't say enough about our session! Carolina skillfully and easily guided me through a process that allowed me to connect deeply within and transform an old feeling and belief that no longer serves me. What I love most about the Heartstream process is that I didn't have to relive past painful events to experience a powerful shift in feeling, energy, and perspective. I highly recommend and suggest working with Carolina and the Heartstream process to clear past traumas, old and outdated beliefs and feelings. You are in loving, safe hands when you work with Carolina!

Trauma The Root Cause of Mental Health

Research is now revealing that at the very root of our anxiety, addictions, depression and low self-worth is trauma especially early trauma.

It was through my own healing journey that I discovered this incredible insight and what made the greatest shift for me in where I am today. This is the case for the vast majority of clients that work with me, in fact, I would say all the clients who have followed my guidance and instruction have healed from the issues that they are facing.

I was referred to Carolina by my GP as I had a minor health issue and I also had trauma from adverse pre-birth and childhood experiences, relating to being an unwanted child. So in Carolina I have been very blessed to find a wonderful practitioner who is helping me release physical trauma and release negative and unhelpful patterns and traumas from my subconscious mind. Through EFT and Carolinas unique Heartstream process my stress and anxiety levels have reduced enormously and I feel happier than I have ever felt in my life. I also used to feel tired throughout the day but now I feel more energised and active than I have EVER felt. Carolina is a joy to work with. She makes me feel very at ease, she is very supportive and encouraging. I have found that she encourages my self-compassion, kindness and understanding, which I feel is essential to any healing process. Her considerable experience and insight have helped me to have deeper insights into the issues that I am addressing. I feel that my sessions with Carolina have been profoundly transformative and I highly recommend her as a practitioner.

What makes EFT and the Heartstream Process® different from

Counseling and other Talk Therapies?

The reason why talk therapy and other cognitive therapies do not work consistently or permanently is that the energy of these traumas remains in the body. Over time the energy of these traumatic events build up until eventually, the body can no longer cope with this overwhelm and physical “dis” “ease” manifests in the body as chronic illness and chronic fatigue including:-

  • Fibromyalgia

  • Burn out

  • Crohn’s disease

  • IBS

  • Anxiety ( including intense stress, chest pains, difficulty breathing, heart racing and panic attacks).

  • Insomnia

  • Autoimmune conditions

  • Depression

  • Migraines. 


I consider myself very fortunate to now have both the knowledge, with the support of good credible science and powerful techniques, to heal myself and live a life that I never thought was possible 20 years ago. I take responsibility in sharing this knowledge and modalities with you so you can transform and heal your own life. I truly believe in you and know absolutely that you too can return to wholeness.

What is the Heartstream Process®?

The Heartstream Process®  is a method that uses metaphorical language and imagery to ease emotional issues and negative beliefs bringing relief, restoration and a sense of renewal to a person’s state of mind and body.


The Heartstream Process® incorporates NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming), Hypnotherapy, EFT Tapping, Mindfulness and Energy Healing in a powerful synergy for healing. 


The Heartstream Process® is unique in that the practitioner is led by the metaphors created entirely by the client. These metaphors are developed by the client’s own subconscious mind, usually  in a visual way as if watching a movie with minimal influence by the practitioner.


My role as the practitioner is to hold the client in a safe space to explore their inner world for healing and resolution with gentle non-influential  guidance.  


What makes the Heartstream Process® so unique is that with the use of metaphorical language and imagery issues are dealt with at a far deeper level than the conscious mind can reach and changes in a person's patterns of behaviour start immediately.


The Heartstream Process® being totally client led is therefore safe, gentle and not at all provocative or triggering. 


The Heartstream Process® allows a client to move through the effects of trauma without ever having to revisit the trauma or even having to consciously remember the trauma itself. Blocks, fears, phobias, anxieties are often the result of traumatic experiences when we were too young or severely affected to recall them.


The Heartstream Process® can also be used by individuals as a creative and imaginative self help tool. 


The Heartstream Process® can be used with many emotional and physical issues. These include, stress, anxiety, PTSD, OCD, depression, addictions, fears, phobias, childhood traumas or early developmental issues. 


Physical issues include chronic illness and dis-ease can also be addressed. These include autoimmune conditions, chronic fatigue, digestive issues, cancers etc.


The Heartstream Process® was developed after my own training and exploration in NLP, EFT Tapping, Hypnotherapy, Energy Healing and Mindfulness.


The seeds of this process began with my introduction to Michele Hart’s “Right Brain Process” which involved working with metaphors and visuals created by the subconscious mind in 2015.


I have been developing this process consistently working with hundreds of clients since this time incorporating these other modalities to create a process for rapid and significant change for my clients.

I’ve been fortunate to have a couple of Heartstream sessions with Carolina. This gentle process and Carolina’s gentle and supportive nature made it easy to relax and open to the process. It was interesting to notice the difference between the emerging images from my subconscious and the ego voice which was saying, ‘Really? That’s ridiculous!’ (Seagulls in tiaras?!). Noticing these two contrasting thoughts highlighted for me that it was my subconscious mind at work rather than the ego voice. And I think trusting those images from my subconscious rather than dismissing them was key to allowing the process to bring resolution to my issues. It was fascinating to reflect on how symbolic the emerging visuals were, even if somewhat odd. For me, finding the fun, if relevant, and remaining curious contributed to the process unfolding and bringing resolution. As a client, I feel the importance of trusting the process and trusting what emerges from your subconscious mind are paramount. Trusting Carolina was the easy part! With so much gratitude.

What Are Metaphors & Why Are They So Helpful?

Metaphors are a natural part of daily life and you would be surprised at how often we use metaphors both in our waking and sleeping state. Here are some examples:-


“I feel like I'm carrying the world on my shoulders”

“I need to roll with this”

“I have butterflies in my stomach”

“I feel I have a dagger in my heart”.


When you think about these metaphors you may find yourself seeing a picture in your own mind. This is the visual aspect of metaphors and what we work with in the Hearstream Process®.


When we are stressed for example, we can ask ourselves “Where do I feel this stress in my body?”. When we identify this we can then ask ourselves "what does it feel like?”.  We can then ask “What does it look like?” 


If we see a visual of what that sensation looks like this then becomes the starting point for the process. By taking the image out in front of us the image becomes workable and we can then ask our heart/mind certain questions to bring healing and resolution to the issue.

What Can I Expect from A Heartstream® Session?

The first thing you will discover during your Heartstream® Sessions is an atmosphere of calm, peace and safety where you will feel honoured and respected on your healing journey.


At no time are clients considered damaged, defective or inadequate. To the contrary, clients are considered to have the inner wisdom and answers to their own healing.


We will discuss the Self Exploration Sheet you would have been asked to complete before your session and discuss your goals and outcomes you seek in working together.


We will then explore challenging emotions, beliefs, experiences you wish to release and heal. We will begin with some Basic EFT Tapping to “tune in” to the issue and then explore body sensations and visual metaphors that arise.


I will then invite you to bring the visual metaphor to mind and guide you through the process where your own subconscious mind leads the way to resolution. We will then work with the energy of your body to anchor in the healing.


The sessions are more profound and deeper in that you will discover the power and creativity of your own mind for healing.

Why is This Process Called "Heartstream"?

This process involves a direct connection with the energy of the heart and its intuitive capacity. It is here that the intelligence of the heart leads the way to healing.

I had the joy of experiencing Carolina's Heartstream process where I felt 100% safely held and guided through this powerful yet gentle visual (for me) and energetic journey. From feeling a dense and heavy energy to the ultimate freedom of a butterfly! I was also keenly aware of the support and guidance that is around and innately within me, within all of us! Carolina is a gift, a healer and I highly recommend her offerings to anyone wanting to gently inch towards and explore their inner freedom!

What Are the Benefits of the Heartstream Process®?

2. It is swift and easeful, bringing issues to resolution in a much shorter period of time than many other therapies and counselling.


3. It is a creative and rich way for you to experience your own unique guidance, wisdom and perspective.


4. We never have to go back to past traumatic events to resolve the negative experiences to release and heal the energy of these past events from the mind and the body. 


5. You do not need to discuss issues that are taboo, embarrassing, difficult to express or require confidentiality for the process to be as effective.


6. You will receive your own self created affirmations and anchor them into your body, thus this becomes a truly embodied experience..


7. The Heartstream Process® will enable you to connect more deeply with yourself, helping you to understand yourself and your place in the world.


8. You will experience significant shifts in your perspective and discover a whole new way of living that is more positive, vital and alive.

10. This process is ideal for creative, imaginative and sensitive individuals who take to the process naturally. It is also a great doorway to those who are more logical and left brained to explore the right hemisphere of the brain and the power of their subconscious mind.
