What to expect from Journey Therapy
Journey therapy, or Journeywork, is a means to open into emotions held in the body, drawing you to your Essence. This provides the connection, expanded awareness and resources to release deeply held blocks in a safe and graceful way. Afterwards, you feel lighter, more free and whole.

With UK based Emotional Breakthrough Journey Therapist, Dr Muzammal
Before the Day of Your Journey Therapy Process
At your free video consultation, I will be interested to hear about what you’re facing, whether that is a relationship breakdown, lack of fulfilment in a job or career, feeling low or depressed, anxiety, a physical health issue, or anything else, how it is impacting your life, and what kind of outcome you are looking for if we were to work together.
I am also interested to hear more about your background so I get a fuller picture of who you are, and anything you’ve already tried to help. I will also want to know of any medications or other remedies you are taking, and any benefit.
There is also an opportunity to ask any questions you may have and if it feels good to move forward, I can book you in.
On the Day: Your Journey Process
Here’s one way we might typically work together:
At your appointment, we’ll start by having a guided conversation to help clarify fully what you would like to work on. This elicitation process will help unearth some of what is going on beneath the surface for you. It will be helpful to both of us. You may begin to have some realisations. The process of feeling emotions tucked away will also have begun, and this will be a natural doorway into your Journey therapy process itself.
Moving into the Process
Sitting comfortably, with the eyes closed, you’ll then be guided in a safe, supported way to fully experience a key emotion that will have been elicited. As you open into it and fully feel it in your body, your experience will deepen, and the emotion will begin to pass through. You will then be supported to discover a deeper emotion coming in.
As you experience successive ‘emotional layers’, you will uncover a past unresolved memory - and which we will come back to later - contributing to the issue you came for. As you are supported to go deeper still, you eventually open into a more expanded experience - one of inner peace and freedom. This is a very healing place.
Infused with the qualities of this precious experience, you now have access to the necessary resources that allow the underlying issue to be resolved safely and with compassion.
As a result, you feel a natural ease with which stored emotion is gently released, emptied out of your system completely.
Afterwards, you feel the relief of having let go of a long-held burden. The overall experience is profound and deeply healing. The results can be surprising. You may feel a strong sense of relief as you now let it go, allowing you to move forward in your life.
Having immersed yourself within your own inner wisdom, you might also find that you have received meaningful insights to fundamental questions regarding your life, livelihood and relationships.
Your own personal journey begins to make more sense as the pieces and parts come together.
As each person and situation is unique, I will bring in elements and tools tailored to your specific needs to help with the problem or challenge you are facing and would like to resolve.
Note that this approach is not about dwelling on, intellectualising and reinforcing a story, but about finally fully facing an issue, letting go of baggage while uncovering insights and moving purposefully forward in your life.
As the healing process continues for a little longer, it is helpful to take it easy for the rest of the day.
To ensure you are supported after your process, I offer a follow-up support call (plus a second call if needed) or equivalent email support. This is usually taken within a few daysof a process.

FAQs on Journey Therapy
How Many Processes would I need?
I would generally recommend a Breakthrough Package consisting of three or five Processes, over a period of several weeks. A first process might, for instance, create an opening that will then allow us to work more deeply through consecutive processes. You also get follow-up and integration support.
We can decide together which Breakthrough Package would be most suitable during your free support consultation.
Is The Journey like Counselling?
With the Journey, the focus is not on talking about an issue. It is instead a guided therapeutic process that supports us to dive deep within, typically dropping through emotional layers, like peeling away the layers of an onion, to uncover a core underlying issue. We go deeper still into an experience beyond the ego mind, one of expansiveness, support and inner peace. Here, you find you have the resources you need to connect safely with held emotions, release, forgive, and move on.
Afterwards people often feel like they have let go of a burden they had been carrying around for years, and consequently experience more internal joy and freedom. You might typically book three (or five) sessions of the Journey, whereas Counselling usually requires a minimum of six, ten, or more.
The Journey Process is experienced sitting comfortably with the eyes closed.
Can I use the Journey Process in conjunction with other therapies?
Yes! Journey therapy helps clear out core emotional blocks, opening up the potential for greater clarity, inner freedom & healing, whether the challenge we face is emotional, behavioural or physical. We can also support our healing process through a balanced diet, appropriate, regular exercise, relaxation, engaging with nature, detoxification regimes and so forth. There are also social and economic influences that may be helpful to work with.
My intention is to work in conjunction with whatever healing route or therapeutic approaches you choose, whether orthodox, complementary, a traditional system or a combination.
The Journey Process itself guides us to our own inner wisdom, where insights are revealed. You thus experientially discover your own answers, a process that reflects the transformative nature of this deep work as we journey to Wholeness.
I already do ‘inner work’. How could I benefit from the Journey?
If you have a regular practise such as meditation, Reiki, Yoga practises, or follow a spiritual path or program, then Great! You might already be experiencing the shedding away of layers, more Presence and the Freedom that comes from opening into more of your Essence.
There may also be times, however, that no matter what amount of inner work we seem to be doing, stubborn blocks remain and hold us back. The Journey Process can be extremely helpful for those times – by dissolving away deep-rooted blocks, it can create openings that support our regular practises. Thus the Journey can work in a wonderful, complementary way with whatever path we are on, or whichever practises we follow.
The Journey can be extremely helpful whenever deep emotional healing work is of benefit.
