Wendy had a 100% full, 100% referrals, waiting list only private practice in psychotherapy in Houston, Texas. She closed her practice completely because she no longer believed in any of the traditional and non-traditional therapies she was certi­ed in. Years later, when she was reintroduced to the father of Eidetic Imagery, Dr. Akhter Ahsen, she knew she had found the Holy Grail of transformational work and jumped back into working with people and transformation. Since then she has introduced thousands of men and women around the world to the evidence-based treatment of Eidetics. This practice, based on Ancient Greek knowledge and 21st Century science, uses the power of eidetic images to enable business people and creatives to unlock their full potential and remove the weight of old, often “unseen” vulnerabilities which have been holding them back.
