Mel Collins is a qualified Psychotherapeutic Counsellor, Spiritual Healer, Reiki Master, Intuitive and Auricular Acupuncturist with my own private practice in Devon. I studied extensively under the Jungian Psychotherapist, the late Dr Roger Woolger in Deep Memory Process (Past Life Regression) and Ancestral Healing. My continuing professional development has included studies in CBT, Motivational Interviewing, Shamanism, Spiritual and Psychic Development, Tarot and Meditation. I have been self-employed for nearly eight years. I run workshops, courses and talks about my work and I have professionally recorded three Meditation CDs. Two of them complement the chapters on Energy Protection and Self Love in the book.
'This book is a major contribution to the subject of intuitive
sensitivity and its relationship to the evolution of human
consciousness. It provides an insightful and instructive
understanding of this profound subject, and the various other
experiences that often accompany it. Filled with a rich assortment
of helpful tools, it is a must-read.'
-William Meader, author, international lecturer and teacher of esoteric philosophy
'I have known Mel for 17 years and she brings light and energy
in all that she does. This book is an extension of that and will
bring a huge insight to thousands of people.'
-Alan Dudley, retired Principal Officer, HM Prison Service 'Congratulations to Mel for publishing this book to help others deal with the issues that come from being 'highly sensitive' at a time when there is so much fear and uncertainty about the future, and so many people are struggling to make sense and find purpose in their lives.'
- Juanita Puddifoot, transpersonal counsellor and council member of Woolger Training International 'Authentic healing is a difficult experiential process, with breakthroughs of joy interspersed with extended times of hard graft and challenge, even more intensified for Highly Sensitive People than for others. Having been just one of Mel's many teachers, I know that she has long been committed to such a soul-path, and find it hard to imagine anyone who would not benefit from reading her book. She writes inspiringly from deep experience, and can be trusted to convey truth. I hope it will have the wide circulation it deserves.'
- Jen Kershaw, Psychotherapist and Member of Soul-Voyagers Network 'I had the privilege of working with Mel in a prison setting. I witnessed her amazing ability to empower some of the most difficult clients to make positive changes in their lives. I truly believe her book will have a positive effect on many people.'
-Haydn Evans, Integrated Substance Misuse Service Manager and Former Prison Officer 'It took me a long time to see the positive in being a sensitive. But now I consider it the source of my creativity, helping me tune into my clients at a deeper level. This book is exactly what we need: a roadmap to being a HSP. It will help you understand, manage and make the most of the gift of sensitivity.'
- Miriam Akhtar MAPP, leading Positive Psychology coach, consultant, trainer and author 'We can get relief by understanding our high sensitivity and by learning to view it as a gift rather than a flaw - which is where this great book comes in. Thank you Mel for writing about it, and for coming on my radio show and changing the lives of so many of my listeners.'
- Jeremy Vine, Broadcaster and Journalist 'A ground-breaking self-help book'
