It can be difficult to know whether a particular therapeutic approach is right for you or the people you work with. Below are some testimonials from Dr Alexandra Dent’s clients who have been keen to share their stories and experiences to illustrate the positive impact HLP has had on their lives, with the hope that others may also benefit from this approach.
Alexandra introduced me to Heart Led Psychotherapy early on in our work and I began to realise that during the busy-ness of life and the traumatic events I’d experienced, I had instinctively protected my heart and soul and in doing so I had become completely disconnected from both. When I realised this, I felt a genuine sense of loss and grief for my inner self, a sadness that I had neglected my heart and my inner desires, mainly due to the power of the ego. This realisation was to become the start of a multidimensional healing process and with Alexandra’s expert guidance I began to live a more heart led life. Alexandra began by teaching me the valuable lesson of surrendering, not only to past traumatic events with the help of EMDR but also to present and future life events outside my control. She taught me to surrender also to the divine source and in doing so I was able to focus on my hearts desires and gain inner strength when I most needed it.
Instead of making decisions based on fear and judgement I’m now able to make decisions based on what my heart and soul feels is right and the decisions I have made since, have helped me to find inner peace and contentment in a hectic life where I didn’t think this would be possible. By listening to my heart and soul I have realised that I feel most content when helping others and for this reason I have set up a charity called ‘Heart Buddies’ to help other children and families affected by congenital heart disease. This decision was largely based on disregarding the ego and listening solely to my heart and soul.
With the help of Alexandra and her Heart Led Psychotherapy, I have embarked upon a huge journey of self-discovery and enlightenment. The therapy has not only healed my mind but also encouraged healing on a much deeper level, enabling me to think with a heart led approach and as a result I am not only a better Mother, wife and business owner, I am now the most authentic version of myself. I feel confident that with future life events, I will not shut down with self-preservation. I understand that to heal, I must FEEL…and that to feel, is to LIVE, learn and GROW.”
Being faced with challenges in both my professional and personal life, HLP has helped me understand how decisions I made and repeated behaviour patterns resulted in the painful situations I was in.
The process HLP uses is now enabling me to differentiate decisions made by the ego versus the ones made by the heart, and the different outcomes these deliver. Learning how to make choices from the heart and soul has been key to drastically improving my decisions, which in turn are helping me lead a far happier and more authentic life where I now feel I am being true to myself.’
I came across Alexandra’s advert in a local magazine and was drawn to it. From the first session to our last, she has been amazing. I had never heard of the ‘Heart Lead Psychotherapy’ method she uses, but her confidence and passion in it gave me the hope and more importantly the trust in her to move forward with it.
HLP helped me to gain the confidence to step into my past and to address issues which had never previously been resolved. Alexandra’s warmth, patience, gentility and passion for the Heart Lead Method, has helped me to have the courage to process experiences which had shaped my life in the extreme and held me back as a result.
Taking what I have learnt from Alexandra, I am moving forward with my life, living in a Heart Lead way. It’s been life changing not only for me, but for those around me. I cannot thank Alexandra enough.”
