Hi Rebecca, I wanted to thank you and let you know what happened to me after our session.

I have to say you were like a dog with a bone and as much as I was trying to ‘only play with the surface stuff’, you really forced me to look and go next level during our session.

As uncomfortable as that was … you changed my life with that session.
Within 3 months I had left the worst job of my life, left the most toxic relationship I’ve ever had and then continued to look and work deep with how and why had I let myself get into those situations. This beginning a real journey of positive self discovery and healing …

My transformation has been mind blowing and our session was definitely the beginning of it all for me.

Setting Expectations!

I’m a healer – but I can’t heal you. That’s up to you. What I can do is facilitate you to heal yourself. I offer simple psychology tools and show you how to use them. I also provide motivation, support, and fresh insights and perspectives. To be honest, while healing can be fast, fun and easy – is often hard and really uncomfortable. We’ll likely be digging up painful stuff that, up till now, you’ve successfully avoided for years – often decades.

I’m hardly a sadist at all. In fact, I will be your biggest cheerleader. But this deep work is usually necessary to address the underlying cause of recurring, stubborn life problems. The tools may be simple, but that doesn’t mean it’s easy.

I’ve tried everything over the years to stop smoking, and then, a month ago, Rebecca fixed my brain (well, the part that wants to smoke) in 10 minutes. I haven’t smoked since.

FAQ: What type of therapy are you trained in?

In addition to my PhD in health psychology (the interaction between mental and physical health – or the intersection between psychology and medicine), my original therapy training was (fortunately) based on Carl Roger’s – very powerful – client or person-centered therapy. I also use a range of other modalities – from motivational interviewing, hypnotherapy, behavior science and … more recently, more spiritual practices, such as Reiki (Level 2) and past life regression.

Testimonial – WONKYUNG JESSICA LEE, VIRGINIA, USA
I was drawn to [Dr Rebecca Stafford’s statement] that psychology is the study of the mind or the soul. However, mainstream psychology has stripped the soul and now the mind, leaving just the brain. I agreed wholeheartedly that neuroscience accounts for only a fraction of the human experience and a broader approach is needed to not only understand but heal the human mind or soul.

I immediately signed up for the 90-minute past life regression session and experienced first hand how Dr. Stafford is using these sessions to heal. Her calm demeanor and empathy accentuated what I understood to be her love for humanity. While every session is personal, I would invite everyone to partake in this experience at least once.

FAQ: How many sessions will I need?

That’s up to you. Some people (like Kate and Teresa mentioned above) get dramatic results after just one session (although please note, as Kate says, it took about 3-months for the changes to become fully apparent), whereas others prefer ongoing exploration and support.

FAQ: How much does a session cost?

Answer: 60-minute session is $NZ 350*, a 2-hour session is $NZ 450** (N.b. the 2-hour sessions are usually past life regression sessions)

*Please note these prices are current as of April2021 and are subject to change without notice.
**Please also note that sessions are pre-paid

FAQ: How quickly will I see change?

I can’t answer this with any accuracy. Some clients have fast dramatic results, others are on a slower burn. I do my best but it’s not up to me. I do find clients who are willing and able to do the deep work get the most satisfying results. And that’s typically not to do with the client, per se, but more to do with timing in their life – which is why I now almost always only work with clients who are at that stage. Dramatic change is often simple, but that doesn’t mean it’s easy (although it can be 🙂

Testimonial- SABRINA GREGORIAN, WRITER, LOS ANGELES
Within a few minutes of talking with Rebecca, my puzzling, frustrating behaviors made much more sense to me. She provided me with enlightening information as well as with the tools to apply the information to my life, and with her help I’ve made some great changes.

One of which I know many people struggle with… exercising. This had been a struggle of mine for years, but within a month of working with Rebecca I now exercise one hour a day, at least five days a week.. and I absolutely love it. This has impacted the quality of my life in ways I can’t put into words. I’ve also become more efficient overall – in time management and work productivity …

And Rebecca did this all while making the process of learning enjoyable, personalized, and funny.

FAQ: Where can we have sessions – do you have an office?


Currently I do all my sessions either by phone (currently only for NZ and Oz) or online for all other international sessions – usually Zoom, which is simple to install, free and I find has superior sound quality.

FAQ: I’d love a session with you – what do I do next?


1. Great! Send me a message on the Contact Form.

2. Please put ‘session booking’ in the subject line (this helps me give it priority)

3. Please list some dates and times you are available and we’ll take it from there (UPDATE April 2021: I’m just about to install the automatic booking system – Calend-ly – which will smooth out the book process)

4. FYI: I’m on New Zealand time. I’m happy to do sessions on most weekday evenings but, as time with my family is precious, I rarely work on weekends or public holidays. If there is an urgent need for a (NZ) weekend session, I will try and accommodate, but there will be an extra fee.

Testimonial- MARCIA KAPUVAI, HANMER SPRINGS, NZ
I’ve lost 20 kgs by exercising more and eating better. It really helps remembering what Rebecca says about weight-loss: that it’s not the most important thing in life.. yes I will get skinnier but does that mean that it would make me happier? No. It will make me healthier and fitter, which will make things easier physically, but weight-loss is not the main thing that would make me happier – if that makes sense. It also helps remembering that weight-loss is more bearable if you are happier, love yourself and remember your self worth.
