My journey to the discovery of quantum healing has been a long and sinuous one. It all started in early 1990’s, when I decided to quit the world of corporate banking after reading Many Lives, Many Masters by Dr. Brian Weiss. My first move consisted in enrolling in Clinical Psychology at Université Paris V René Descartes in 1995. Early on, I became interested in the field of Health Psychology/Behavioral Medicine, a discipline concerned with understanding how biology, behavior, and social context influence health and illness. More specifically, I developed an interest in the study of psychological factors of resilience and dispositional traits such as optimism, coping styles, and personality measured in health relevant contexts. Interacting with medically-ill patients, I preferred to identify and strengthen their resources and assess their social support network, rather than focusing on their symptoms, weaknesses, or limitations. This perspective had permeated through my clinical work today. In parallel, I continued to search for answers into the origin of unexplained medical symptoms and alternative paths to wellness. My favorite readings at the time included Anatomy of the Spirit: the Seven Stages of Power and Healing by Caroline Myss and the series Life and Teaching of the Masters of the Far East by Baird T. Spalding. Although my readings led me to a Mind, Body, Spirit approach to wellness, I had to embrace the duality of a Mind & Body approach, prevalent in academic and medical settings. In 2000, I came to the University of Miami as a Fulbright scholar to conduct research in Health Psychology/Behavioral Medicine, a discipline concerned with understanding how biology, behavior, and social context influence health and illness. In the last phase of my clinical training, I was able to integrate different theoretical orientations and spiritual insights to clinical skills. My integrative approach included psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral, interpersonal, systemic, and schema-focused therapy, as well as stress management and relaxation techniques. In addition, I received practical and formal training in hypnotherapy. I finally started a clinical practice in 2007. During the confinement period of the COVID-19 pandemic, I found time to read more and challenge the limitations of the dual Mind/Body approach to wellness I have been following for the last sixteen years. It was far time for me to bring back more ‘Spirit” into my quest for answers and expand my toolbox to better assist my clients. This is when I discovered the work of Dolores Cannon. And what a discovery it has been! I have finally found a technique truly addressing the holy trinity that is the Mind, Body, and Spirit to help people transcend adversity and realize their potential. I have placed all my enthusiasm, energy and intellectual curiosity into learning Dolores’ Quantum Healing Hypnosis Technique (Q.H.H.T) and reading her books. I have completed Level 1 and 2 trainings at this time and have already experienced the intensity of Q.H.H.T. sessions personally. Faced with the limitation of in-person delivery imposed by the QHHT model, I was introduced to Beyond Quantum Healing (BQH), a non-dogmatic, open-minded, and highly personalized approach to the exploration of consciousness, that allows practitioners to integrate the use of various tools and clinical skills to serve the needs of their clients. My ambitious goal now is to combine my experience as a licensed psychologist with the expertise and healing power of quantum healing techniques. to serve my clients and whoever is willing to take on that journey with me. More recently, I discovered and experienced quantum biofeedback with the Genius Insight, as a client at first. Next, I could not resist the urge to dive into yet a new and exciting learning experience and add the Genius Biofeedback products (Genius Insight and Quanta Capsule) to my practitioner’s toolbox. My ambitious goal now is to combine my experience as a licensed psychologist with the expertise and healing power of quantum healing techniques. to serve my clients and whoever is willing to take on that journey with me. I was born in Paris, France and have been living in Miami since the year 2000. I am married and have a daughter. Bi-cultural and bilingual in French/English and an avid traveler, my exposure to diverse cultures has made me particularly sensitive to the specific integration challenges associated to cultural differences. I will be able to services in English and in French. At your service, Sophie Guellati-Salcedo, Ph.D.
