Marisa de Jong Certified EFT Practitioner, Heart IQ Coach

When human beings experience life stressors and traumas (major and minor) it can mentally and emotionally block their path to the enjoyment of life, to personal success, to healing, to loving relationships and even to financial success. It is therefore of the utmost importance to resolve the effects of these stressors and traumas in one’s life. My contribution to this is to help my clients eliminate their inner blocks so they can become the best possible version of themselves. They can know themselves as being more joyful, peaceful, whole and safe; and everything starts to flow from this state of being. Our work together in the sessions requires some detective work at first, Sherlock Holmes look out! Subsequently we focus on releasing the negative inner programming (limiting beliefs), which breaks down unwanted behaviour and emotions like fear. I use a gentle process that removes the inner blocks permanently. Sometimes fast, sometimes with some persistence. I know that no single approach is the right one for every individual, and so I have been trained in a range of modalities including EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques, also called meridian tapping), Matrix Reimprinting and Heart IQ Coaching. I also have developed my own kind of hands on healing loosely inspired by Reiki and Reconnective Healing. EFT is an unusual combination of tapping on a sequence of acupuncture points while tuning into one’s issues verbally and mentally. This process unlocks the inner programming so we can alter the automatic response to the memories and negative life experiences. The result is a calmed down nervous system, an opening up of new possibilities and a renewed sense of self. The beauty about EFT is that the technique is automatically being taught during the session so that my clients can do a lot of homework outside of the sessions if they choose to. This puts the client mostly in the driver’s seat of their healing. This empowering element is what really drew me in to becoming an EFT practitioner. Matrix Reimprinting is a version of EFT where we do direct work on the Inner Child. It’s a beautiful and effective method as well. Heart IQ is a style of group coaching that focuses on the deep longings that people hold in their hearts and being. The goal is to move towards those longings and to stretch our comfortzone around the uncomfortable boundaries that we bump into when we move towards what we want. This is being done in the presence of others, in group form. Most traumas and scarring is caused by others and profound healing takes place when healing of the heart takes place in the presence of others. Heart IQ circles will start in the new year. Besides my training in above mentioned modalities I have also been “trained” intensely in the school of life. It has thrown me many different challenges, in my own personal life and  for my loved ones. Having weathered a vast amount of challenges I believe I am able to bring a lot of depth to my work with clients. But that of course is for you to decide! The kinds of issues I have worked with in the last 10 years include spider phobias, public speaking, blocks around fitness, fear of cancer returning, physical pains and limited range of motion, memories of abusive stepmother, chocolate cravings, a 20 year grief around the death of a mother, and many more. I am currently living in Toronto, where I live with my youngest teen. I have lived in many places after having grown up in the Netherlands and Curacao, the Dutch Antilles. My usual fee is 90 dollars but I’m holding an introductory special here at the dojo of 60 dollars until the new year. I also have a guarantee in place for my clients which allows them a full refund if they have not experienced any noticeable improvement after three sessions. I really look forward to working with you! For more information or to book an appointment, contact me at 416-890-2263
