A few years ago I was very privileged to work with a family who went through a profound transformation after the mother brought her daughter for a short set of sessions. It taught me so much about how unique the metamorphic touch is when used within the family, and how quickly profound change can come about in this context.
An unhappy situation
The initial trigger for coming was that the 8 year old would wake up 3 times a night needing to eat. As a result, the whole family slept badly, felt tired and irritable. The mother was resentfull about selling a home she loved to buy a basement flat in a rough neighboorhood where she was very unhappy. Her husband was now sleeping in the child’s room, and the girl slept with her mother in the marital bed.
Compensating for the mother
On their first session, I worked on the mother for an hour and then placed the 8 year old on the couch. I gave her a comic to read to keep her busy when suddenly, out of nowhere, she said, ‘Mum, I need to eat because you don’t eat enough.’ I looked over at the mother and noticed for the first time how very thin she was, and she looked back at me knowingly. The child’s pattern of insatiable hunger was a way of compensating for her mother’s inability to nourish herself. Later, the mother shared that this had gone on as far back as her pregnancy.
An inherited pattern
The mother would alternate her own private sessions with one’s shared with her daughter. On one occasion when we were alone, she confided that she had been abused by a family member. The next time they came, the girl once again surprised us with an unexpected statement. A boy from school was dragging her into the corner of the yard, pulling down his pants and rubbing up against her almost daily. This had gone on for over a year. The pattern of abuse had been inherited. When a pattern is expressed verbally in this way, it is coming to the surface as it works it’s way through. This is one way transformation can show up.
A radical transformation
I went to teach in India for a month, and on my return the mother came for one last session. During that period the family had gone to the seaside for a day out. On the way there they drove through a village and noticed an open house.They stopped to have a look. It was their dream home and they made an offer on the house right there and then. When the owners found out that they were not yet in a position to buy, the offer was refused. They went back to London, decluttered their home, and got it on the market the following Saturday. It sold that very day and their offer was accepted. From the proceeds of the sale they were able to pay off all their debts, move out of the flat they hated and remove the girl from the old school. The couple even started sharing a bed again. This was profound transformation on every level.
Great for couples
It’s not unusual for couples to become closer after sessions. One student wrote ‘After only one treatment my husband has changed to a much more loving, kind and considerate person. He gives cuddles, kisses and more, whereas in the past he has been quite unwilling to show his emotions. I am also delighted to say that he has cut down his working hours and he puts his family first. Quite unbelievable but true!’
Through the generations
A grandmother who has been practicing Metamorphic Touch with her family for years sent this: ’I have done a couple of metamorphic sessions on my grandson Louis, and I am pleased to say that although his parents were told he had a hernia and would need an operation, he has just been for a scan and there is no sign of the hernia!’
Using metamorphic technique in your family
For me, the Metamorphic Touch is an indispensible practice for families. Often I teach mums who want to support their relationship and their children. It only takes one person to learn the technique and share it with the rest. There is no need to put time aside to do it as it can be given during our normal downtime while we watch telly or chat on the couch. Parents often give it to their kids as they tuck them up in bed.

In 2004, I began training in Metamorphic Technique with it's founder, Gaston Saint-Pierre. I became a practitioner, then a teacher in 2006, which led me to run workshops all around the world. I then created Sacred Life Alchemy, the Co-Create with the Field Manifesting Process, and Heart Listening, three profound healing systems to transform your reality into more of what you want. In 2017, I renamed my teaching Metamorphic Touch to reflect the new insights and perspectives I bring to this approach. Metamorphic Touch is a powerful healing modality to transform your life.
