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 trauma informed and certified Traumatologist, also trained in Vagus Nerve Toning and Energy Healing. I specialise in Somatic Therapy, Nervous System Rewiring, Vagus Nerve Healing and Energy Mastery. I offer a multitude of services in my practise which include: Somatic Experiencing, Trauma and PTSD Therapy, Psychosomatic Mentoring, Subconscious Rewiring, Nervous System Rewiring, and Energy Realignment. Neuroscience and Metaphysics form the foundation of my work, but I am a deeply spiritual person and you will feel this from working with me also.
My intention 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.
We have to 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 of your own life, 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 imprinted over time in childhood albeit through familial, environmental and societal conditioning and/or adverse childhood traumatic events. From here I guide them in unravelling their Self Concept and Self Identity on the bass of these limiting narratives that were imprinted onto them. I guide them through a putrefaction and dissolution process of the constructed ‘Ego’. Until we process and heal our Shadow Self, identity the Ego and all of its layers, we stay energetically and metaphysically stuck in what is called a ‘Geopathic Storyline’. We will play out repeated and cyclical experiences based on dynamics that feel normal and home to us. Again I know this through my own life experiences, constantly finding myself in a loop after loop.
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 energetic channel and physical vessel of past imprints that have been lying stagnant. 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.”Iyanla Vanzant
A Journey Of Higher Conscious Awakening
Psychosomatic Mentoring Programme
This is a personalised and intricate monthly mentoring programme that is a guided journey in self discovery and self empowerment. A minimum of 4 months is required on this programme journey as it includes full spectrum coaching and complete re-parenting approach to Self. We delve into all aspects of the psyche – mind, body, soul, inner child, masculine, feminine. We look at nutrition, stimulant consumption, sleep patterns, morning routines, energetic hygiene, cleansing practise, supplements, exercise routine, and much more. It is an exponential journey of uncovering and unravelling who you are. My intention is to navigate you into full embodied awareness and out of a mind-level programmed shadow self.
I work psychosomatically to guide you in delving into shadow work so that we can unravel your subconscious programming, identify behavioural patterns, reactive responses, 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 these heightened ‘fight-fight-freeze’ states in the body, so you have embodied awareness of how to navigate yourself back into a grounded connected parasympathetic state. We use these triggers as opportunities to heal the wounded parts of your psyche. And also to bring up into the awareness viscerally imprints in the body and nervous system that are coming up to be healed and processed out. I teach you how to move through a complete emotional/trauma cycle, so that nerves energy does not become stagnant/blocked in the body. This will aid your Allostatic Load (resilience to stress).
I use psychosomatic therapy modalities to work consciously and gently with the Nervous System and Neuro-Biological pathway. We work consciously together to unravel your subconscious programmes and traumatic memories so that we can reset and reorganise information in the emotional brain, also known as the Limbic System. The aim here is to aid brain plasticity (neuroplasticity), while guiding you out of chronic survival response and hard conditioning to high pain thresholds. We work to resent and regulate the Nervous System out of dissociation, dysregulation and numbness, so that you can feel your neural pathway online in the body (known as Bioplasticity). I guide you into what is known as Interoceptive Awareness where we feel deeply connected to your body and its electrical lines. We work to tone the Vagus Nerve, the the main cranial nerve that modulates our brain-gut axis and dictates how fast we bounce back from stress and pain response. We will unravel 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 up in relation to others. How we are internally wired informs our emotions, feelings and thoughts, behavioural patterns and actions, tone of voice, the language we use, how we hold ourselves. We manifest our external realities based what somatic information we have stored in our internal plane and how we have been hardwired from early as our developmental stages (even from the womb space). We are embodied energy after all. Our geopathic storyline playing from inside energetically attracts and pulls in people, places, things and experiences that keep affirming back to us everything we already believe and feel on the inside (unconsciously and subconsciously). This is metaphysically and neuroscientifically fact.
But the amazing thing is… you can create a better life for yourself. It all starts deep within your body, the emotional brain, the nervous system and soma, that make up your unique bioenergy 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 the Firefly Mentor Group WhatsApp Chat to connect with others who are on the same journey, a Firefly Community portal (with past clients), and a Firefly Drive accessible online with various guided exercises, reset and reframing tools, self-care practices, and many resources I have created that will help you on your journey. The programme includes a weekly 60 minute intense mentoring session where we do full embodiment work, as well as a 90 minute group mentoring call once per month with other souls who are on the same awakening journey with me.
You will receive deep Somatic Therapy in your 1:1 sessions (see below what these entail), while you can also avail of Energy Realignment and Cacao Therapy Wellness in this monthly sign up instead of a mentoring session. Any other events I hold you can avail of these too at a discount.
This is an all rounded programme, geared towards someone who is really looking to go deeper into their healing and be free from the chains of the past. No stone is left unturned. Who you under all of the layers will be revealed, and life as you know it will dissolve as you move through a complete embodied rebirth.
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 enrol on this programme. Once we consult I will share with you a large document outlining the programme in more detail.
Somatic Therapy Session
90 minute Psychosomatic Experiencing
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. It is a hands-on, practical treatment, where you can switch off, and relax into the body while.
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 unravelling for nervous system activation and triggering various emotional responses
- consciously connected breathwork
- inner child connection to stimulate the emotional brain and fire up the associated chemical responses from the limbic system
- brain-gut-heart-body coherence techniques including body scanning and energy activation
- recalling, reframing and reimprinting protocols to aid cellular release and regeneration
- guided trauma cycle completion process including neurogenic shaking and energy release
- vagus nerve activation and toning
- gut and digestive system healing
- developing the interoceptive and neuroceptive pathway
- sensory stimulation to help with nervous system regulation
- somatic movement, fascial stretching and manoeuvring, cupping, cranio-sacral, acupressure
- vagus nerve stimulation through various portals e.g. massage, pressure and contraction, chakra activation
- expansion of neuroplasticity, allostatic load and resilience to stress and pain
- guidance on upholding good energetic hygiene e.g. morning routines; caffeine consumption; energetic clearing, cleansing and smudging; food choices; natural supplements; sensory stimulus; homeopathy; bathing; electromagnetic consumption; bed time routine and sleeping patterns; raising your vibration
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, neglect, parental divorce
- sexual abuse
- 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
- deep losses such as miscarriage, spouse, child
- ongoing stress, panic and anxiety
- cycles of depression and deep lowness
- physical traumas and injuries
- outer body experiences
- women with fertility and conception issues, menstruation problems
- lower back pain and joint pain
- distorted eating habits
- suffering with migraines
- poor sleep and insomnia
- digestive issues such as IBS
- skin problems such as acne and eczema
- ongoing throat problems such as strep, thyroid
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, into a dominant homeostasis that is functioning at a healthy capacity. I do provide a 4 to 6 week after-care protocol post session, all dependent on what I feel you need moving forward until the next time we meet.
Online Somatic Experience
80 minute session
Let me guide you from the comfort of your own home, wherever you are in the world!
This is an intuitive online session 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 approach and model I use is exactly the same as having an in-person session, the difference being is that I am not physically working on you, rather I guide you down into the body and into your nervous system, where you perform the movements and exercises that I would normally do in-person. It is a very unique session in that it will show you the portal to self healing and how to become your own medicine.
I’ve held space for online clients in Australia, England, Portugal, USA, and Mexico. I am very flexible with time differences so this need not be am issue for you.
Post-session, I will check in and also provide a 4 to 6 week after-care protocol, all dependent on what I feel you need moving forward.
Energy Realignment Therapy
75 minute treatment
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 and more intense over time. This can then eventually manifest in the physical body through various sicknesses. This stuck/stagnant energy can consciously and unconsciously cause us to be in a space of repetitive cycles, feeling unbalanced, 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 Realignment 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 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 embodied 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 75 minutes in length. You will be lying comfortably on the plinth for 45 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.
Cacao Wellness Therapy
90 minute treatment
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 90 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.
“Energy cannot be created or destroyed, it can only be changed from one form to another. Matter is energy, energy is light, we are all light beings. Every cell has life. Matter has life. It is energy solidified. Our bodies are embodied energy. Everything is energy.. that is all there is to it… Match the frequency of the reality you want and you can’t help but get that reality”Einstein
1 full day in-person immersion
A full day in person immersion with me in a mystical location surrounded by nature, in a group setting
Tuning into all aspects of mind, body, soul and spirit
Including meditation practice and journeying, embodiment work, shadow dissolution work, trauma release, somatic therapy, breathwork practice, cacao ceremony, nature trail/hike, dynamic movement, energy release and realignment, shamanic practise, grounding work, womb space clearing, ancestral trauma clearing, conscious connection work, ecstatic dance practise, inner child connection, crystal healing, intuitive eating, cold water therapy, conscious conversations about topics such as manifestation, alignment, trauma, forgiveness, sexuality, pleasure, karma….
and SO much more
I began my spiritual journey 9 years ago and have worked deeply on my own inner healing, awareness and development over that space of time. My toolbox is wide ranging and expansive as a result. I’m super excited to share my experience and tools in this in person immersion with souls who are on a healing, awakening and activation journey
No stone will be left unturned; all be transparent, and whatever you need you will receive
It is in creation and alignment at the minute, but I will open up bookings this September
60 minute consult
A consultation can be conducted in person or online. It is required if you are inquiring about signing up to my monthly mentor programme
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 60 minutes. It involves a thorough conscious mentor 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.
