Joseph Eliezer, RPC #1801

Vancouver
604-739-3010
www.1111spiritroad.com

 

Joseph practices a unique form of counseling – Intuitive Psychotherapy. This method allows Joseph to use (a) his highly developed intuitive abilities to help his clients identify reasons for their difficulties and (b) his psychotherapy training to process the information with the client to achieve the desired outcome. As Joseph helps his clients clear out debris that often lies just below the surface of consciousness, clients become more in-tune with their own intuition, develop strength to trust their own judgment and, as a consequence, are able to make important changes and decisions with greater confidence and certainty. Among other issues, Joseph helps people with depression, anxiety, past traumatic events, addictions, loss and grieving, relationships, spiritual and existential issues, including spiritual crises. Joseph is available in person, by telephone or via webcam.

Over the years I have observed that there is little synergy with regards to the mental health industry, and we offer a synergistic mind, body and spirit approach.
I offer a holistic approach to the client, ascertaining their mental, emotional, physical, spiritual as well as their financial IQ. I will give the client a professional, personalized program where we will be working together over a period of 3 to 6 months. The program will include counselling, hypnotherapy, online as well as telephonic support and cutting-edge, plant-based Raw Food Technology to help balance the brain and body. I will also incorporate healing methods such as bioenergetic and metamorphic techniques and advanced metaphysics to heal the client. If necessary I will outsource clients to trustworthy colleagues to augment the process.
Having been through the various psychiatric and wellness institutions and healers from all walks of life for the last 20 years myself, I have vast knowledge, experience and resources to offer the client a high quality service which will bring about transformation. The core healing system used is through the modern day classic A Course in Miracles.

I am a licensed psychologist with a specialty in neuropsychology, post-traumatic stress disorder and holistic psychology. My path towards holistic psychology was initiated as an attempt to help a loved one who was diagnosed with a mental illness since early age and at the same time was very spiritual.  I first searched a conventional approach without much result. My loved one taught me to look into the spiritual alternative.  I was able to assist him in his metamorphosis. It was a very lengthy, hard and enlightening process. My loved one is now independent and self-sufficient, with an expanded consciousness, maintaining a strict spiritual discipline, which has been one, if not the most important, factor in the transformation. I have learned that we are spiritual beings having a physical experience in this beautiful planet and that we need to address the physical, nutritional, mental, emotional and spiritual dimensions while assisting a person with a spiritual emergency or psychological challenges.

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and have been a serious student of metaphysics and the planetary shift for the last 20 years. Have worked in mental health since 1996 and in private practice since 2004. I do Dolores Cannon Quantum Healing Hypnosis Therapy and the Mandala Assesment and Research Instrument (MARI ), and I am currently learning a spiritually based healing technique called Neuro-Integration . I work with adults and children. I’m beginning to receive more and more clients who are “waking up” and needing integration and support, which is the work I most enjoy doing. The Cannon and MARI techniques are both very useful for this, and Neuro-Integration also helps enormously by facilitating mind-body shifts that support the client’s intension. I love this work!
