Experience Freedom & Satisfaction

“The FREE 15 minutecall with Caryn clarified for me, in a non- pressured environment, that I wanted to work further with her. In this time I became more clear about what I wanted to work on, and I came away with some concrete strategies that begun to help me immediately. No question it was worth my time!”

“I spent years (and years and years) in various forms of therapy, coaching programs and personal growth workshops. It was super frustrating, and often left me feeling helpless and bad about myself.Since I began working with Caryn, I’ve created new patterns that not only support me in feeling good, hopeful and powerful, but I am able to take actions that would have been too scary before.“

“Caryn is amazing in her ability to gently help me find inner peace. I have felt relief and joy after just a few sessions. I went from feeling terrible, with serious anxiety and disconnectedness, to feeling alive, confident more secure and empowered. I feel like Caryn is central to helping me integrate the pieces lost when I first developed problems at a very young age.”

“I came to Caryn for intense obsessive thinking. At the very first meeting, I had some anxiety come up. The way Caryn handled it left me feeling calm, but also deeply confident in her. I actually thought, “Okay, this woman knows what she’s doing.” I trust her because her expertise is clear. And that, mixed with her incredible compassion and intuition, makes her a wonderful guide for life change.”

Contemplating an Intensive?

Go with & Leave Go it alone Behind

One of the things I discovered through the decades that has helped so many people is understanding the importance of attunement— of giving people the experience of being truly gotten for who they are, where they are.

This level of acceptance does not only feed us humans emotionally, it feeds our whole being including our nervous system and sense of bonding. It gives us an incredible and deep overall sense of satisfaction. So intensives exist to make this private, face to face experience possible in a way that harnesses the success of past work or aims to accelerate work already underway. It is rarely used as a way to begin Empowered Self Relating work, but there are exceptions.

Hi, I’m Caryn Scotto d’ Luzia

Contrary to popular belief, humans are not designed to shift what we experience as stuckness, feelings of inadequacy, deep seated inner conflicts, obsessive compulsivity or self-defeat by ourselves, at least not initially.

When Intensives Work Well for People

So people experience attunement best face to face for a variety of reasons, kinesthetic dominance is one. Other people may not have gotten enough quality time with folks when they were young, so it is important for their transformational work to include personal connection that is up close. Other people have experienced great results with skype sessions and want to deepen their experience further or accelerate work that is gaining momentum. Still, there are instances where intensives allow for greater anchoring of shifts and result in more sustainability of life changes over time. Finally, some people find they focus best and have the greatest growth expereinces when they take a break from their home setting, work life or usual relationship dynamics and travel somewhere more neutral or supportive to their needs.

If you are not sure if you would benefit from skype sessions, vs an intensive, or even vs a workshop, let’s set up a 15 minute clarity call and get clear on what are truly your next right steps.


Imagine experiencing more inner ease that adds up over 3 days…

The quality of Your Life is waiting for YOU.

Why wait?
