Born in Brazil, and having lived in 4 different countries, Val has a natural flair and curiosity for understanding different cultures and languages, and the impact these have in our societies, social acceptance and inclusivity. These experiences led to her commitment to study psychology, human behaviour and trauma, and to integrate embodiment of the feminine archetypes in her coaching practice.

She credits her multi-heritage and multi-cultural background with being responsible for her empathic and grounding nature with people and in leading women’s circles.

She has made the journey from radio producer and presenter, to freelance interpreter for Brazilian footballers, to Life Coach, Circle Facilitator & Speaker. At the centre of all this work, is the thread of deep listening, presence, bold questioning and a love for understanding people.

Marisa lives in the beautiful East Sussex town of Lewes, where she nurtures her interest in holistic healing through her connection with nature during walks and gardening and by following her deep passion for sound vibrational medicine.

As “Hema Sounds,” she utilizes a diverse array of instruments such as Tibetan bowls, crystal singing bowls, flutes, drums, tuning forks, chimes, gongs, voice and natural sounds to ease stress, release emotions, relieve pain and kickstart self-healing with individuals, couples, families and groups. Using specific healing rhythms, frequencies, and intervals, she helps participants shift into more meditative states of mind that encourage release, rebalance, rejuvenation, focus, creativity, and inspiration.

Marisa’s voyage into the realm of holistic healing was shaped by her longstanding career as a specialist teacher navigating the challenges of stressful environments in inner London and working closely with children, young adults and their families with significant communication difficulties, anxiety and autism. This experience ignited within her, a profound interest in the transformative power of sound as an alternative medium in which to connect and communicate beyond words.

Marisa is committed to fostering inclusivity and helping others live their best lives and now works with all ages and abilities. She is constantly seeking collaborations to bring sound vibrational medicine into new settings be they festivals, hospitals, homes, workplace, retreats or mind, body, spirit wellbeing events.

Marisa embarked on the robust training of a Diploma in Integral Sound Healing with The Sound Healing Academy. She gained invaluable insights and expertise in the science of sound and vibration, the chakra system, sound meditation techniques, the energetics of healing and using intention/positive thinking to power up the impact of sound.

She creates immersive sound experiences that harmonize the body mind and spirit. Each 1:1 session is personalized to your unique needs and intentions, ensuring a truly transformative and uplifting experience.

As a businessman in the aviation industry followed by over twenty years as an airline Captain, I know the strengths, frailties and intricacies of the human spirit. I have struggled, suffered, and endured as you have, and I have come through to the other side. As will you, my friend.

Hypnotherapy can be the solution to so many of life’s problems. Anything that mind can create, we can work with. 98% of all sessions and meetings are carried out online. Imagine the comfort of relaxing in your own armchair, settee or bed at home and getting the very best therapy without travel, sitting in waiting rooms, accommodation costs and any concerns you might have about health considerations.

Should you wish a face to face meeting we can do so at my office in Eastbourne at the Natural Fitness and Therapies Beach Studio. All tailored to make things easy for you and to save your valuable time.

Robin offers free no obligation discovery calls to anyone interested in hypnotherapy and its restorative powers.
