Guiding You Into The Light

Hello and Welcome to Firefly Therapy

My name is Danielle Hayes and I am the founder of this Professional Holistic and Alternative Health Service based in the heart of Dublin City Centre.

I am a trained Traumatologist and but also trauma informed, Spiritual Mentor, Energy Therapist and Meditation Teacher. I hold space for others who are on a path of self discovery and deep inner healing, and guide them in finding authentic inner love, peace, happiness and joy. I too have been on this awakening journey, I have walked through hellfire but it led me into the light.

I offer a multitude of services to help souls in their healing which include, Trauma and PTSD Therapy, Psychodynamic and Psychosomatic Mentoring, Spiritual and Life Coaching, Energy Therapy, Cacao Wellness Therapy, Meditation and Breathwork Workshops and Indian Head Massage (coming this year).

At the core of my intention, my aim is to help people reconnect with themselves. True healing begins when we stop searching outside ourselves. When we realise that all of our pain, issues and perceived problems have arisen from deep within us, we see that we already house all of the answers we are searching for. I know this is to be true through my own healing.

Remember the truth. Give yourself permission to see through the veil of consciousness and take ownership for your life. You are the creator and destroyer, and the power lies in your hands.

On a deeper level, I help souls to identify their core limiting beliefs and values, and behavioural responses and patterns, which were learnt in childhood albeit through familial, environmental and societal conditioning and/or adverse childhood traumatic events. From here I guide them in unraveling their Self Concept and Self Identity which is all formed in developmental years. I guide them through a putrefaction and dissolution process of the constructed ‘Ego’. Until we process and heal out our Shadow Self, the Ego and all of its layers, we stay energetically and metaphysically stuck in what is called a ‘Geopathic Storyline’ and will play out repeated and cyclical emotional experiences. Again I know this through my own life experiences, constantly finding myself saying, “how has this happened again”.

On a neurobiological and neuroceptive level, I work closely with the Limbic System, the emotionality part of the brain that stores subconscious memories, and the Autonomous Nervous System, our embodied neural network which carries and stores past information in and around the body. I guide souls in resetting and rewiring the subconscious emotional mind, and work on a somatic embodied level to reset the autonomous nervous system. The intention is here is to help souls move into their embodied network, to ‘get empty’ and clear their channel/vessel. The brain-body gut axis holds the memories of past painful experiences and the imprints of trauma, which inevitably dictates our entire life, how we show up and how we perceive reality. These imprints are visceral and are stored in our cells, muscles, tissues, organs, gut. We have to deep dive into the body, clear it out and get empty, so we can free ourselves from the chains of the past.

If you want to change your personal reality, you have to go inward and unravel your ‘personality’.

If you feel the resonance with me, I’d love to walk you back home to yourself.

“Until you heal the wounds of your past, you are going to bleed. You can bandage the bleeding… But eventually, it will all ooze through and stain your life. You must find the strength to open the wounds, Stick your hands inside, pull out the core of the pain that is holding you in your past, the memories and make peace with them.”

A Journey Of Higher Conscious Awakening

Monthly Psychodynamic Mentoring

Description

This is a personalised and intricate monthly programme that is a guided journey in self discovery and self empowerment

It is an exponential journey of uncovering your Truth so that you can live in an authentic space of being. My intention is to navigate you into embodied awareness and out of your programmed shadow self.

I work psychodynamically and psychosomatically to guide you in delving into shadow work so that we can unravel your subconscious programming, behavioural patterns, reactive responses and states, unseen and stored trauma, inner child wounding, and other learnt/conditioned layers. We work with real-time triggers, identify the root of them and where they are energetically playing out in the body. I guide you on how to navigate through triggers and these heightened ‘fight-fight-freeze’ states in the body, bringing you back into a more grounded connected parasympathetic state. We use these triggers as opportunities to heal the wounded parts of your psyche.

I use psychosomatic therapy modalities to work consciously and gently with your Nervous System and your neuro-biological pathway. We work consciously together to rewire and reset your subconscious mind, the Limbic System (emotional centre in the brain), the Nervous System (our neural network in the body), and work to regulate the Vagus Nerve which modulates our brain-gut axis. We will unravel and unwire your familial and societal conditioning, automatic programming, imprinted trauma (including immediate and generational trauma), limiting beliefs and narratives that are stored in your brain and body and playing out in real-time in your life. All of the latter informs how we perceive ourselves and the world, and how we show us in relation to others. How we are internally wired also informs our emotions, feelings and thoughts, behavioural patterns and actions, and language. We manifest our external realities based on what we have playing on an internal plane and how we have been wired from early as developmental stages (even from the womb). We are embodied energy after all. Our geopathic storyline playing from inside energetically attracts/pulls in people and experiences that affirm everything we believe and feel on the inside. This is metaphysically proven.

But the amazing thing is… you can create a better life for yourself. It all starts deep within your body, the subconscious mind, the nervous system, and your energy field.

With this programme you receive daily support from me on a personal WhatsApp chat to support you in between our 1:1 sessions, access to Firefly Group Community on WhatsApp, guided exercises, reset and reframing modalities, self-care practices, and any resources I have created that I feel will help you on your journey. It includes a weekly 60 minute intense mentoring session as well as a 90 minute group call.

You can avail of an Energy Realignment session or a Cacao Therapy Wellness session in this monthly sign up, which can be facilitated instead of a mentoring session, or added on at a discount.

This is an all rounded programme, geared towards someone who is really looking to go deep in their healing and be free from the chains of the past.

The energy exchange is variable depending on the type of sign up, which can be discussed in a consultation.

A consultation and monthly sign up is  required to enroll on this programme.

Trauma and PTSD Therapy

Psychosomatic Experiencing

90 minute session

Exchange €120

Description

These are intuitive therapy sessions where I use various psychodynamic and somatic-embodiment tools, subject to what I feel you and your body needs to help in your healing process

The model I use is a body-oriented therapeutic model that helps people heal trauma, be it stored, unseen/unresolved, or immediate trauma, as well as other stress disorders such as PTSD. I work directly with the Limbic System (emotional brain where the subconscious mind is located), the Nervous System and Vagus Nerve which controls 90% of the brain-gut axis.

Tools that I use in my sessions include but are not limited to:

  • psychosomatic unraveling
  • somatic experiencing
  • conscious connected breathwork practise
  • inner child connection
  • vagus meditation including body scanning
  • recalling, reframing and reimprinting protocols
  • guided trauma cycle completion
  • energy release work
  • vagus nerve activation and toning
  • gut and digestive system healing
  • interoception and sensory stimulation
  • somatic movement exercises
  • dynamic movement and stretching

I work with you to release any stored and undischarged nerves energy that may be stuck in your body in relation to a traumatic episode or event, to release the imprint of it on the body. I help you to calm the Nervous System to move out of dysregulation and dissociation. With my coaching style, and body first approach to healing, I help you to understand how your limbic brain and embodied neural network is responding/has responded to the traumatic event/episode.

These sessions are suitable for souls who have experienced traumatic events such as:

  • adverse childhood trauma such as domestic abuse, alcoholism in the home, abandonment, homelessness, sexual abuse, neglect, parental divorce
  • sexual abuse in teen/adult years
  • addiction problems
  • tragic death of a loved one
  • car accident (involved or witnessed as trauma can also be secondary)
  • crime victimisation
  • domestic violence
  • failure experiences
  • phobias
  • deep losses
  • ongoing stress and anxiety
  • cycles of depression
  • physical trauma and injuries
  • bullying
  • outer body experiences
  • flashbacks

Depending on the level, length and magnitude of trauma experienced, most souls need more than one session to process and heal out traumatic imprints. It takes time to regulate and desensitise the nervous system and guide it out of dysregulation and dissociation, into a dominant homeostasis that is functioning at a healthy capacity

Energy Realignment Therapy

90 minute treatment

Exchange €110

Description

Can you feel your energy stream? Do you give yourself time and space to sit still and be one with your body? Do you have emotions, feelings, sensations, sensory cues appear in the body and can’t seem to navigate it? Is your nervous system stuck in fight/flight/freeze? Can you feel something stagnant in your body and it just keeps recurring? Is your physical body showing signs of stuck energy through heaviness, inflammation marks, ongoing sickness?

Are you listening to your body or just numbing out? All we are, in truth, is embodied energy. Your body will always communicate to you. 

When energetic sensations keep reappearing in the body, it’s a sign that old nerves energy hasn’t been moved out. When we don’t release old energy, or let’s say we attach to it which inevitably informs the body to hold onto it, it becomes ‘stuck’ and builds up, making the feelings and sensations more + more intense over time. This can then eventually manifest in the physical body through various sicknessness. This stuck/stagnant energy can consciously and unconsciously cause us to be in a space of repetitive cycles, feeling unblanaced, unwell, foggy, anxious, heavy, sick, dissociated, numb, etc. 

This is where I can help assist you and give your body the nudge it needs to move it out.

In this personalised Energy Realignemnt experience, I work with your 7 main chakras, your embodied energy centres, to help open, move and release any stagnant energy blocks that are stuck or blocked in your body. I use Universal Life Force energy to facilitate realigning your energy channel.

Lying comfortably on a plinth, I will guide you through an intentional, conscious connected breathwork pattern to help you connect with your body and guide the nervous system to shift into a parasympathetic state. With the body in a relaxed state and the mind at ease, I will guide you in moving off into a meditative transcendental state. As you give yourself permission to be in embodied relaxation, I will perform sound healing on you and then realign your chakras one by one, spending 5 minutes channeling life force energy down through my hands and into each power centre.

This session is 90 minutes in length. You will be lying comfortably on the plinth for 50 minutes, with warm blankets and a candlelit environment. We finish the session with a heart centered conscious chat about what showed up in the session, as a gateway to opening up your subconscious programming, limiting beliefs and feelings, unseen trauma and any underlying issues that you may not have been consciously aware of.

You will leave the space feeling light, relaxed, at peace, one with your mind and body, connected and grounded.

“Together we are all on a journey called life. We are a little broken and a little shattered inside. Each one of us is aspiring to make it to the end. None is deprived of pain here and we have all suffered in our own ways. I think our journey is all about healing ourselves and healing each other in our own special ways. Let’s just help each other put all those pieces back together and make it to the end more beautifully”

Cacao Wellness Therapy

120 minute treatment

Exchange €120

Description

Here I use a beautiful natural organic plant medicine, 100% raw ceremonial grade cacao from Guatemala.

Traditionally, raw cacao has been used by many indigenous tribes and in homeopathic therapies for its proven healing and health benefit properties. It is proven to reduce inflammation around the whole body, improves gut health and boosts the immune system (highly loaded with iron, magnesium and calcium), has the antioxidant effect within the compounds that it is composed of including flavonoids and polyphenols. Incorporated into everyday lifestyle raw cacao has multiple health benefits including increased energy levels, lowered blood pressure, better sleep, improved digestion, increased insulin sensitivity (helping with reducing the risk of diabetes). It’s one of the highest plant-based sources of magnesium, which is important for healthy heart and brain function – it helps turn glucose into energy, enabling your brain to work with laser-sharp clarity and focus. And of course, its a fabulous source of four scientifically proven “happy” chemicals – serotonin, tryptophan, tyrosine and phenylethylamine. These neurotransmitters are associated with warm, fuzzy, cosy feelings of wellbeing, bliss and happiness, As you can see, this natural unprocessed food is a super food and brings positive energy to one’s life and welbeing.

In a spiritual context, raw cacao is known for its heart opening abilities, due to the fact that it is natural and organic, holding the frequency of nature – the energy stream we are most in harmony with. Its heart-opening properties are also attributed to its high levels of theobromine, a mild stimulant that is a mood booster and alter’s one state of awareness. It has been used through time to help souls tune into their inner spirit and wisdom, giving one a deeper sense of self and embodied understanding. It offers a beautiful gateway to explore and touch the depths of your heart, soul and Spirit, and activate/promote inner healing and remembrance of your Truth.

This session is 120 minutes long. It includes an initiation with raw ceremonial grade cacao and a space to drop into your body and connect with your heart -this is where your truth and light is.

Sipping on your mug of homemade cacao, I guide you in connecting with your heart centre and accessing universal love energies that offer so much healing and inner-processing. I guide you in tuning into’ why’, your intentions for the session and the use of the plant medicine, and what you want to release and manifest moving forward. This is a powerful portal in the session, the speaking aloud of intention, as it holds so much manifestation energy. We talk about manifestation, what it is, how we ‘do’ it and ‘be’ in the flow of it, and how the process of manifesting works.

Tuning into your body, I guide you in feeling into how the body feels in its internal environment. This gives you space to bring up into your awareness your energy rhythm, energy blockages, underlying issues, feelings, sensations, thoughts, that are playing out in your psyche. We have a conscious heart centred talk about what is showing up and I guide you in feeling into the truth of it all. Once we’ve made a connection with the body, I will bring you through an intentional breathwork and body scanning meditation for going deep into conscious connection. As you drift off into a beautiful place of embodied awareness and relaxation, I will facilitate some sound healing and channel in a short yet effective energy healing.

The session offers a space to be in pure relaxation and self-reflection, to provide an inner-silence allowing you to purvey the body and mind in peace and groundedness. It is a space to come back into yourself. It is rooted in helping you re-balance your energies, open up your heart, and restore your well-being. We finish with feedback over some refreshment and/or herbal teas.

Consultation Meeting

40 minute consult

Exchange: €60

Description

A consultation is required if you are inquiring about signing up to my mentor programme or a block of trauma therapy sessions

This is a really significant part of the puzzle in any 1:1 work on a deep soul level. Our souls have to know one another. For me, I work with souls through intuitive resonance. Consulting before any sign up gives me, and you too, a feel for one another, to see if we are a match and aligned.

From resonance we build a mutual trusting relationship, one where you feel open to show yourself fully. It’s a co-creation and co-commitment.

A consultation takes 40 minutes. It involves a thorough conscious mentor/therapy type session about where you are in mind, body and soul. It gives me the opportunity to feel into what you are looking for guidance with and what I can put in place to support you in your healing and expansion. It provides you with a space to speak openly about yourself, your life, and your current obstacles that are blocking you from living in abundance, happiness, inner peace and freedom.

I will go through what programmes I offer and suggest which one(s) I feel would suit you best. I will answer any questions you may have about the process also.

From this point on, it is in your hands if you want to come on the journey with me or not. There is no pressure as I trust the Universe aligns me with who I am meant to work with.

The energy exchange for a consultation is €60 non-refundable. If you decide to sign up to my monthly programme or a block of trauma therapy sessions, this €60 will be deducted from your total fee.
