My Story
I am sharing my life experience so that you can see that it's possible to come out of the darkest deepest place and soar.  I have healed being diagnosed and hospitalized with severe depression and anxiety, being told I was too sensitive and could never have a stressful job like teaching.  I have healed not being able to function on a day to day basis because depression and anxiety ruled my life. 

Let me start at the beginning.  Growing up I had periodic times of depression.  I thought it was normal.  In my late teens those periods became more intense but I still got through them.  Then in my early 20's I lost 6 close friends in a drunk driving accident and that, along with other unresolved trauma, caused me to begin a rapid spiral down into despair.   The short version of this story is that I was admitted to a psychiatric hospital in Dublin.  I was an inpatient for about 3 months and released with a prescription for a coctail of drugs and told to check in with my doctor every few months.    A few years later I moved to London.  All the unresolved issues that the drugs were covering up and with the stress of the move I relapsed big time.  I spent about 6 months of that year as a day patient in a hospital in London.   The good news is that I started intensive therapy with a therapist who I attribute to saving my life both literally and figuratively.  I ended up working with for the next few years and was weaned off all my medication..... This was the start of my healing..... but I still had more to do.

After completing my Master's in Education and getting a position as a High School Science teacher (remember they said that a stressful job was not possible for me, particularly teaching), I had my son.  Shortly after that we moved to America.  In America I met a Rebirthing practitioner and with her support and guidance, the power of conscious connected breathing I moved from surviving and just getting through each day to re-creating who I was and how I interacted in the world.  I knew I had to share this gift and began 2 years of Rebirthing training and yet more intensive healing. 

In the process of my own personal healing I realized that even though I would not wish what I experienced on anyone it has made me who I am today.  It has allowed me to be able to love and support myself first and in turn my clients as they go through their process.  I learned that everything I perceived as bad or wrong about myself always had a compelling reason and that I was OK just as I was.  This has allowed me to support everyone that comes to me in a way that they feel safe sharing their traumas and struggles.  I have learned to listen to and trust my intuition and Higher guidance and to use that knowing for myself and others.

Don't get me wrong I've still had stress in my life and have had some major life changing events and trauma but I can look back and see how far I've come.  I can see that these events do not rule me.  I deal with them appropriately and do not get sucked back into the downward spiral.  I know that I am a strong woman with the tools and gifts to get me through whatever life throws at me.

Yes... I still have more to do.... but I'm a lot happier doing it now!

Watch Dr. Eilis' interview with Mindy Kaleta on the topic "Speak Your Truth, Tell Your Story".


Dr. Eilis Philpott's academic qualifications are B.Sc. (Bachelor of Science in Botany, Chemistry and Industrial Microbiology), P.G.C.E. (Post Graduate Certificate in Education for Biology (Masters equivalent), &  D.D (hon) (Honorary doctorate in Divinity for her services to the healing arts).

Eilis lived in Ireland until she married and moved to London, in the UK.  In Ireland Eilis studied for and obtained a Bachelor's degree in Science and after her move to the UK, continued her studies receiving a Post Graduate Certificate in Education. She then taught Science, (specializing in Biology and Human Reproduction), at a High School in South East London. 

In 1994 she moved with her husband Patrick and son Ben, to Connecticut, in the U.S.A.  Once in the U.S.A., Eilis became very interested in Alternative/Complementary healing modalities and Energetic Healing.  Eilís is the eldest of nine children and has been surrounded with the energy of birth all her life.  It naturally followed that she became interested in Rebirthing as a healing modality.

In 1995 Eilis was attuned to First & Second Degree Usui Reiki and later became a Reiki Master in Usui/Raku-kei Reiki and Angelic Reiki.  Following these attunements Eilís completed Rebirther & Advanced Rebirther Training with International Seminar Leaders and Rebirther Trainers Bob and Mallie Mandel.

Eilis started her healing practice in 1996 with Rebirthing as the primary/foundational modality used. 

In the early 2000's Eilis was initiated into St. Germain’s School of “The New Healing Way” and into the 13th Octave LaHoChi.  She is now an endorsed teacher of the 13th Octave LaHoChi.  She is certified in Rebirthing, 13th Octave LaHoChi, Akashic Field Therapy, Soul Language and many other modalities, all of which are incorporated in her healing services. 

Each session with Eilis is a unique healing opportunity, as she is guided, by her own and her client's guides as to how to proceed in order that her clients always receive the highest healing available to them at that time. The result is a powerful synergistic healing for anyone who wants to live their true authentic life.
