What Patricia's Clients Say
“Patricia is just so great at what she does. I think she understands me better than I understand myself. By using IFS and the Enneagram she has helped me accept all of myself. I have stopped condemning parts of me that I have been battling for years. I have reached a level of personal acceptance that has enabled me to forgive myself, and consequently to forgive others. I function at a much higher level of energy and effectiveness since working with her.”
Robert Tallon, Co-author of From Awareness to Action.
“I experienced my first panic attack on an airplane in 1991. That panic attack developed into a full-blown phobia of airplane and ferry travel. My life was severely restricted. I tried many things including therapy, EMDR, hypnosis, and desensitization, to conquer this debilitating phobia. All had limited or no success. After two sessions with Patricia, I have taken several short and long trips. What a relief to have my live back. For the first time in seven years I have a tool that allows me to travel again.”
Jim Asper, Carpenter.
“Patricia introduced me to Energy Psychology by asking me to choose an issue I felt anxious about, something I wanted to resolve. I chose something that had me paralyzed with anxiety for months. A normally resourceful person, I could move neither left not right regarding this issue. After the brief (under 10 minutes) treatment my stress went from a ten to a zero. The next morning my mind was calm and organized. I was able to logically detail all the information that was required to accomplish my goal.”
Norma Strickland, Business Consultant .
"I was scheduled for an MRI and was more afraid of being enclosed in the MRI tube than of the results. Patricia taught me the energy psychology procedures for anxiety and claustrophobia. During the hour-long test, using the procedures, I felt totally relaxed and calm. "
I work at a residential treatment center for at-risk youth. Many of the kids I work with have been severely neglected and abused. In my role with this population as a direct care councilor I am required to live with them intermittently. The therapists and psychologists I work with in conjunction with these kids are very
experienced and well trained. Many of them with well over 30 years involvement in the field of psychology and therapy. Having been involved with many professionals associated with therapy, I choose Patricia as my therapist. In my experience her approach towards healing and personal evolution is the most useful, comprehensive, capable, and instrumental framework available.
I have been working with Patricia Wintyr for about 4 years and I continue to do so because she helps me to understand how I got to be the way that I am and how to heal the wounds that prevent me from living fully in the present moment. Patricia is a wise woman who has shown me what it means to give true empathy and unconditional love to someone who is hurting because of the past and thinks she isn't worthy to be loved or valuable enough to have needs (let alone have them met). There are so many wonderful things that I could say about Patricia so I will keep this short and sweet: I have worked with more than a few counselors and Patricia is by far the best because she really cares, not only about her clients, but about herself. She continues to work with her own issues and that is what makes working with her so powerful, she is real and present with herself and her clients. You can't beat that with a stick, and even if I could I wouldn't. I love Patricia, it is a blessing to know her.
Patricia comes to her work with an extensive background in psychospiritual approaches, and a grounding in her own psychological and spiritual work. I am continually moved by her deep commitment to know herself fully and to bring this knowledge of her deepest nature to her work with her clients. She sees people's essential selves, and she is extremely effective in helping her clients contact this essential core within themselves. She is open, authentic, and grounded in her Self, and this grounding allows her to be deeply present with people. She has always been able to help her clients see the adaptive function of their behaviors, and thus she is especially compassionate, allowing and encouraging to the people she works with.
Laurie Brown, Ed.D.
I highly recommend Patricia Wintyr as a therapist to any individual or couple seeking to do transformative growth and healing. She is an outstanding therapist who can guide with compassion while firmly challenging deep beliefs that can be an obstacle to growth. As her colleague, I have been grateful to Patricia for her tenacious pursuit of furthering her excellence in the field of psychotherapy by searching for outstanding teachers and updating her knowledge of innovative skills. She was often the first therapist in our community to have sought training with state of the art and new models of psychotherapy strategies.
Working with her I experienced new insights and compassion which allowed me to make real changes in my life.
