CREATING A POSITIVE LIFE
Beautiful, from inside out, healer Shanti Faiia spent a relaxed afternoon in the garden of Temple Beautiful chatting with founder Sonya Rothwell about what first drew her to Theta Healing. They laughed a lot as kindred spirits do. Shanti's a naturally joyful healer, her radiant energy's infectious, as you can see from Sonya's photographs ♡
What's Theta Healing ?
Theta Healing's a meditation technique and spiritual philosophy – not specific to one religion but accepting them all – with the purpose of getting closer to the Creator. It’s a training method for your mind, body and spirit that allows you to clear limiting beliefs and live life with positive thoughts, developing virtues in all that we do. Through meditation and prayer, the Theta Healing creates a positive lifestyle ☆
Why are you drawn to this particular technique ?
For me Theta Healing’s a precise and directed technique that allows us to bring hidden subconscious limiting beliefs to awareness, and immediately change them to positive beliefs that create a strong and different foundation for a more positive and fulfilling life. Our behaviours are driven by our conscious and subconscious beliefs. If we can know what those are, and change them to beliefs that uphold the reality we wish to experience, then we are really and practically on our way to living a reality that we actively co-create with love and joy. Theta Healing allows us to dig deep to reveal those subconscious programmes we mostly don’t even realise govern and direct our lives, and then allows us to change them with ease ☆
Who first developed the Theta Healing technique ?
The ThetaHealing® technique was created by an American woman Vianna Stibal in 1995 during her own personal journey back to health who later set up The ThetaHealing Institute of Knowledge®

What brought you to Theta Healing ?
At the end of 2007, I went through a very difficult experience and completely lost touch with myself. In order to cope with a trauma I didn’t understand, I disappeared from myself. At the time, I was living with a dear friend who was having a hard time getting through the days too, for different reasons. One day she came home and was absolutely radiant. Her whole face had changed. She was lighter, and I saw her smile in a way that I had not seen in a long while. I asked her where she had been, and she told me she had just had a Theta Healing session. I immediately booked myself in for a session, and the difference between how I felt before the session, versus after was miraculous … in a good way. I could also finally see a way to find myself again. I went to regular sessions and was able to release the fear and the shock and the trauma from my experience ☆
This technique helped me so much, I wanted to know how to do this work with myself, so I trained as a practitioner in 2008 and 2009 and have been using the technique ever since. It has enriched my life in so many different ways, and continues to do so. Theta Healing’s now become a calling for me, and led me to leave my corporate life as a lawyer in New York and London, so that I can fully devote myself to empowering people in their own journeys through life, primarily using the ThetaHealing® technique, although I do work with other modalities as well ☆
What other modalities do you work with?
Shamanic Journeying & Spirit Animal Guide Retrieval, Breath Work, Yoga and Meditation ☆
Who are your clients ?
I work courageous people wanting to find a different way of dealing with stress and tension, who wish to take a holistic look at where that stress stems from ☆
I have a broad range of clients, from healers to lawyers to entrepreneurs in many disciplines, so it's different for each individual. We may experience similar outcomes in our lives that allow us to relate to others, but the way in which we each arrive at those outcomes can be so very different and is always a very individual process ☆
Generally my clients want to align their lives with their desires; those who've come through trauma (whether physical, emotional or spiritual) wish to move forward to a new chapter but feel stuck; and those who have medical conditions that they're working with doctors to resolve, would like to also address their condition at the level of subconscious energy and beliefs. I work with anyone who wishes to really look at how and why they are going through life in a particular way and wants to shift that to a more positive experience on all levels ☆
Where do you practice from ?
I work remotely because I have clients all over the globe – Theta Healing works the same long distance as it does in person. Distance sessions are online via video or audio calls depending on the clients preference. I also work in-person where ever I am. I’m currently offering in-person sessions in New York, London and Bath, UK which is where I’m currently based ☆
How can I book a session?
Theta Healing sessions can be booked online or by email. Locations and dates are listed on the website for in-person sessions :
